It's been an odd week around here with all of the tickets to shows we've been handed to give away to you guys. I mean, this is a vinyl blog and while records and going to see bands live have always gone hand in hand for me, the pendulum has swung clearly into the live arena this week.
So, I was chatting with Nate from Detox Retox about their CD release show this Saturday night at the Black Cat and I said you gotta gimme something to make this show stand out—y'know, sell it.
Consider me sold:
Five Reasons to Come to Detox Retox’s CD Release Show this Saturday at the Black Cat
By Detox Retox
1. The new record is awesome, if we do say so ourselves. It has five new songs plus a reworked version of “Too Late” which also appeared on our previous EP. Andrew Maury (Ra Ra Riot) produced it, and it sounds fantastic.
2. Sick of standing still at DC rock shows? Good news: dancing is mandatory at all Detox Retox shows.
3. Co-headliners Loose Lips are also releasing their second EP, “Lower Your Expectations and Be Happy.” Catchy!
4. Openers The State Department feature members of past and present DC mainstays Black and White Jacksons, Ra Ra Rasputin, and The Spiritual Machine.
5. Hardcore nudity. We won’t say whose.
