DIRTY THREE ARE COMING

posted June 22nd, 2012

Hold on to your soap and don't bend over - the Dirty Three are coming! Jim, Mick, and Warren are sailing out from down under and on their way to the USA! Who knows if they'll make it through immigration, or if they'll need to be smuggled, or if their smugglers will turn out to be pirates or which of their instruments will be confiscated as "contraband" by border police! Perhaps their mega-man-beards will hide them, but then what about Mick? He's clean shaven... (read more)

SOULSTICE ON ICE

...and welcome to it! It’s burling hot in the so-called real world – ie, the world outside the tent that masks the passageway to a recessed fiefdom known to mortal men merely as Drag City - but deep within the incorporate offices, it’s cold as hell! We greet the warmest season as we always do: by tightly sealing our doors and windows. What happens out there stays out there. We’ll sweat when we’re dead. We don’t deign to guess what sort of...

HIDE YO GLYPHS, PUT ON DA NEW GLYPHS FROM SIC ALPS

posted June 19th, 2012

Whoa hay! Whuh. Sic Alps keep churning like charred butter, a little slit in the cap on top of the cat revealing the tricks from the sleeves you can't keep down. Again and again, they slap your wrists and elbows like the laughing hyena's panting tongue. But for all the little teasers and pleasers we've had since 2011's Napa Asylum, via the seven inchers and extended plays, it's durn near time for a newborn long player, ain't it? Sho' is! Wouldn't ya have... (read more)

DEATH ON SCREEN

posted June 15th, 2012

We gave you ...For The Whole World to See, then Spiritual, Mental Physical. But you've had those for over a year, and naturally, you can't face life without more Death. After all, you've been listening to Death, reading about Death, perhaps catching a glimpse of limited engagement live Death, but it's even been awhile since that happened, so now more than ever, you're ready to actually see Death, aren't you? Death was waiting for this moment. Now, Death... (read more)

STEAMY LIVE FOOTAGE OF TY SEGALL

posted June 13th, 2012

Extra, Schmextra! More dungeon-themed news from the vast, ethereal Drag City compound: deep from within our famed subterranean spa comes the first episode of “Drag City Limits!” Squeezed tightly into the sunken, steam-tiled confines, sweating, naked from the waist down (below the camera angle - this is still almost kind of a fambly website, right?), "Drag City Limits" portrays an experiential replica of what it's like workin' on site (and in sight), for Drag City. “Drag City Limits” poses the eternal question, how many musicians...

WORKIN' IN THE DC COAL MINES: THE STRANGE DISCOVERY OF STRANGE VICTORY

posted June 12th, 2012

Ever wonder what lurks in the dank, labyrinthine basements of Drag City? Us too! Aside from stockpiled condoms, poppers and hand guns, the murky depths have only stubbornly given up their secrets! Recent digs turned up a curious revelation: there's more to the basement than the hoarding of doomsday resources! It appears we've housed a booking agency ever since we moved into our new manse - what?!? Imagine that! Staffed by illegal aliens, we expect - ol' Drag City, Inc., always pinching a dime (or...

COME OUT TO DA DEE SHOW!

posted June 5th, 2012

Chicago loves its theatre; but how often is a stage set for 2-fers worth a cent? None too often, in our stage-minds! At least, none full of balladry and songstressing by the likes of both Baby Dee and AZITA. Dat's right, Baby Dee is back on tour, harpalizing, piandifying, and generally vaudevillianizing audiences left n' right across not only America, but the northern playgrid of Canadia, too! Baby Dee is full of gifts, even for the fey and meek. But the biggest (re)gift(ed) light... (read more)

HEXUAL HEALING

posted June 4th, 2012

Wilson Semiconductors is but a half-year past, yet in this current time-sphere in which we sell records, the average consumer-schmuck may've shifted gears 'n ears a thousand times since it's release. Which is why it's essential for contemporary artists to remain agile and active - and that requires regular workouts, preferably on stage! How else will those consumer-schmucks separate the girl-goo and boy-cream from the crop? Neil Hagerty and his Howling Hex are building a village, one pediarchy at a time, and now the king...
