IS THIS A DIS-TEM?

Welcome back to Drag City. Music is bigger than ever! We’ve got a handful of new releases set for every month of this year, and we expect that all of them will become a part of your playlist sometime soon – whether or not you buy them, bitch. But we’re not thinking about that right now. No, we’ve got a movie opening somewhere as we speak. You’ll hear about that in a minute or so, just keep reading…and we’ve got... (read more)

Bert Jansch Uses Youngian Method To Cross The U.S.

posted May 17th, 2010

It's been a few years since Bert Jansch's Black Swan tour brought him back in touch with audiences around America. We were hoping to get him over here following the reissues of LA Turnaround, Santa Barbara Honeymoon, and A Rare Conundrum last summer, but health issues prevented him coming at that time. Now however, health issues are allowing him to tour, which is good news. Even better news is the timing of Bert's tour - coinciding exactly with the start of Neil Young's... (read more)

HUMP-FUCKERS WON'T LEAVE NEW YORK (AND NOW LOS ANGELES!) ALONE

posted May 14th, 2010

Good news! Since they keep finding people hiding in the theatre after every show of Trash Humpers at Cinema Village in New York this week, the suits are extending the run another week. That's right, you have until Thursday May 20th to get your fill (or your friends' full) of Trash Humpers. In case you haven't heard (and why would you have heard? you're nobody - but because you're on our list, yeah, we think enough of you to let you know. anyway -),... (read more)

Trash Humpers are humping up to a theater near and dear to you!

posted May 4th, 2010

Harmony Korine’s lastest film -- Trash Humpers -- follows a gang of old-faced degenerates, wandering through the streets of a suburbia, fucking shit and fucking shit up. Korine conjures this perverse artifact with an abrasiveness that only shoorting on VHS tape can convey, with tracking issues, drop-outs and boxy, in-camera microphones crushing the sonic climate. n fact, Trash Humpers is a film that destroys the structure and content of anything conventional, which should be enough to satisfy you bastards. We predict (and hope) that it... (read more)

Beauty & Truth

posted April 28th, 2010

L.A. folks, this Friday and Saturday is your last chance to check out Legacy IIX, the latest collection of doodles from Drag City's favorite visual artist collective PFFR. You might ask us, "Drag City, what's so special about these doodles? " Well, you common trash, aside from it being art...! It's also a deft interweaving of classic disposable American tele/visusalimagery (aka, common trash) with that elusive thing we call gallery-ready craft. And while you could probably achieve something of the same effect by visiting... (read more)

Want More Beef? We've Got Hamburger!

posted April 21st, 2010

Who says Neil Hamburger doesn’t care about you? Drag City’s premier anti-comic has announced 20 new tour dates, hitting a handful of cities too-often neglected. Neil’s raunchy mix of trash talk and contemplative philosophy kicks off on Earth Day(!) in Newport, KY. While no celebrity or rock star is safe from his material, audience members can rest assured it’s okay to laugh. Earth would have wanted it that way.

Peep the dates below and start planning your carpools.

4/22/10 Southgate House - Newport, KY
4/23/10... (read more)

DRAG CITY FOR KIDS

What’s up?!? Back in action for the second time in less than a month, your Drag City scribe is gonna keep it simple for you. We’re a record company, which means we make phonograph records, compact discs and digital downloads for around a couple dozen artists and thirty or so different records per annum. However, as a company that makes things, we’re forever dabbling – we’ve made books, magazines, DVDs, posters, a coin (!) and sometimes just a t-shirt. Actually, we’d... (read more)

Drag City sez Discount This!

posted April 19th, 2010

We’ve got a unique new promotion for the vast, only semi-explored Drag City catalog. Every Monday, we’ll announce the Item of the Week on the Drag City website - and for the next week of days, you’ll be able to mailorder... (read more)
