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...

FALL IN LOVE WITH LOVE'S A RONDO

posted June 1st, 2012

The word is out, rolling up the dunes and down the valley - that's Valley Tangents, baby, your summer gateway! Blues Control's latest tube ride in over a minute catches the choicest wave of the bridge-and-morning-tide set. The curl kicks out with "Love's A Rondo," a glassy track you can either ride or simply dive your whole bod right into. So real, you can almost see it, right? Well this time you can! Dig the Tara Sinn directed video for "Love's A... (read more)

SEE TO BELIEVE YOU HEAR THE NOISE INSIDE BATOH'S HEAD

posted May 31st, 2012

It's finally upon us, heads! Masaki Batoh is taking his brain and its machine on the road. The first jaunt, before an eventual trip to the new lands of the Americas, occurs in Europe. It's a mini-tour, perhaps, but it's perfect for the considerable amount of collective consciousness it takes to perform such material as that found on Batoh's Brain Pulse Music, or the improvised mental sets he's sure to flex live, with his Brain Pulse Music Machine. Yes, the BPM Machine... (read more)

POST MEMORIAL GLOBAL SHARK CAGE TOUR

posted May 29th, 2012

We had a swimmingly awesome holiday weekend, didn't you? Ah, the mammories we come to hold dear, post-mammorial day. This year's holiday weekend was particularly bacterial in the way stagnant swimming-hole water can be inner ear; it marked the beginning of Papa M's return to the stage! Yep, across the salty pond of the real world (as opposed to that in the fjords of your swimsuit), Papa M converged infectiously on the crowd at Crane Lane Theatre in Cork to kick off his first...

THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER MAY 2012

posted May 25th, 2012

WORD ONE

Ah...Drag City comes alive again in the words of a fresh new newsletter! But even though life is beginning anew here, and even though life is long, and even though life is often too long for some of us (we’re looking at you Rolling Stones! And thank you Sonic Youth!), frankly, we don’t have time to waste on niceties, felicitations, another word here. So we won’t beat around the bush with fancy languages. Let’s try it this way: we want you to... (read more)

The latest installment of the heady-nod-of-a-guitar-god ‘zine-rag, Galactic Zoo Dossier #9, towers over us June 19th, 2012. (re)Coil, mortal! Ok, ok, enough with the role-playing, put your shirt back on. Galactic Zoo Dossier #9 has all the firepower you’ve come to expect from Plastic Crimewave’s smoky penmanship. Plus articles with words, too! Yep, full-blown interviews with... (read more)

HEY! YOU! GET INTO MY CLOUD!

posted May 24th, 2012

WE KNOW WORLD - you have an opinion on digital music, we have the emails from many of your residents to prove it. BUT KNOW WORLD - Drag City don't hate on digital man, we sell mp3s on our website! Yeah, we know you want the data on a business card and slipped into your jacket, but we totally gave up on slipping it in a long time ago. Stuff, shove, and love is all we know anymore. Still, we're always ready to grow... (read more)
