Let Us Send Our Trash to Your Phone

posted May 24th, 2010

Hey, you! Yeah, YOU -- with that look of abject humiliation on your face every time your quaint -- but let's face it, tired -- "Camptown Races" ringtone goes off in a crowded elevator! Want to really give them something to pity you for? Try one of our free "Trash Humpers" ringtones. Each one of them contains a moment of pride and pathos from the great new American film by Harmony Korine, Trash Humpers - already opened in New York... (read more)

Long and hard is the path, we walk slowly and wonder. We wonder many things of import, such as when the good Brother JT will play another show. What's that - Saturday May 22nd at a secret art space with a slew of Thrill Jockey bands?!? We asked and we did verily receive. Then how about this: when, o when will Brother JT return from the mountain and the desert (the kaliedescopic mountain and desert of pure lysergic energy, that is) and float to us... (read more)

Will America ever learn the lessons of Katrina? On May 3rd, the Cumberland River rose up and flooded through Nashville. As far as crazy people go, Nashville is no New Orleans, and there was no Superdome for crowds of desperate rapists to prey upon, but still - the lamestream media is acting like this terrible tragedy is no worse than the flooding of a local cesspool, thus cutting off real Americans from responding to the crisis the way the good Americans do - by rolling...

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)

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)
