Endtables play first show in over 30 Years

posted March 9th, 2011

Something in the sewage water in Louisville, KY. Over the years, Drag City has slurped from many a scummy drain down there to bring you the tastiest bits of musical nastiness, none more exciting than The Endtables EP, a balls-out punk record by a band making the Louisville scene back in the late 70s. The jams hadn't been available for 30 years prior to it's re-release on Drag City, and now, as if that wasn't exciting enough, you have the incredible opportunity to see the... (read more)

Anyway, if you're an enthusiast of the "word-cross" and you're reading this, then 46 down was probably a snap for you when perusing the Sunday LA Times.

Oh, wait - there's no money in this, is there?... (read more)


Down, Under and Around

Dang, this Have One On Me crew just keeps on hustlin' into the epoch of the Drag City journey! Clearly, Joanna Newsom must be working within her own structure of time, outside of the identifiable hours we know and refer to in terms of morning, afternoon, and night. How else could she keep it all together going from time-zone to time-zone, zig-zagging across the planet while kicking out the harp n' piano jams with her band? It's up for the Aussies to try and crack... (read more)
