I skipped dinner to blog (verb, transitive) you these important announcements....
(1) Freeform KDVS and Art for Spastics "Coyote" Services presents...
XYX, from Monterrey, Mexico, throughout the state of Califas, Áztlan--California, dig?--from Monday, July 20 through Tuesday, July 28. XYX are a tremendous two-piece noisepunk unit of awesome fury and femininity who combine aggressive, relentless pummelling action with partyhardy pulse and creative effects sorcery that adds a psychedelic edge. Sorta kindred to The Mayyors in that sense! Check below this playlist for the full tour schedule (don't trust the playlist on the flier; there's been a lotta last-minute shuffling, sorry...)
(2) Speaking of relentless pummelling action....My special in-studio guests this week are Pigeon Religion, from Phoenix, Arizona. These guys writhe and seethe to weave a maelstrom of muscular rhythm and creepy crawly sinews of scrawly guitars. Rather agonizing! They're touring now, heading north to Oregon and Washington before returning via the inter-mountain West. They pack incredible power, perspire by the bucketload, and put on a riveting show to watch.....surely, you'd never expect a band this heavy to have a stand-up drummer. Their full live set can be heard beginning around minute 20 in this podcast. It's highly recommended for fans of AFS faves such as The New Flesh, Hammerhead, Gob (Reno), Mercury 4°F, etc.
