I just got back from seeing Wayne The Train Hancock at the Continental Club with my old best friend and a slew of other dance-shoe enthusiasts. A great way to celebrate being thankful. What a great show. Great great great. He's the motherfucking "viper of melody" for goodness sake. Anyway, that show running long meant that you got to hear the record for a few extra hours. Hooray! It's no longer up, but you will be able to buy it at Vitriol Records very soon. For those of you that lent your voice to the reading of the poem, you will be handsomely rewarded. For those of you that have already ripped the stream and are spreading our record on mediafire or whatever, we hope you contract mouth herpes. We are totally fine with passing the record out, but the lyrics are very important to us and it's a bummer to have people listening along without reading along. Anyway, you give a mouse a cookie, right?
Thanks for tuning in.
See you in Sanger tomorrow.
We'll be playing in the evening.
Here's the address:
Sanger, CA @ 730 Recreation St., Sanger, CA 93657

I am currently in Austin, Texas giving thanks to the man from whence I came for having snipped his vas deferens post-my-conception. Thusly, I'll be posting this at midnight central time and taking it down midnight central time. Consider it our way of saying "thank you" for having waited this long and paid attention this long and cared this long about our ragtag operation. Lyrics are on our Bandcamp site. Also, you can download "Opposable" and "Tarantula Type" for free there. The entire record will be out very early January. It is being released by Vitriol Records and Penguin Suit Records (jointly). Pre-orders will be up at the Vitriol Records store shortly. We will also be doing something swell for the record release. Keep the tour requests coming. Sans further ado:

SUCH big things in the works,

Sometimes you get so busy chasing the horizon that you don't realize that horizon is already here. By which, I mean: Hyde Park Half. After years and years of wanting to get involved with a permanent solution to the dearth of venues here, I think the future may be closer than I had thought. Los Angeles is one of those places that continually shoots itself in the foot when it comes to DIY venues for music and other community events. The graveyard of one-great-venues has claws of adamantium and they come ripping fast and furious: The PCH, The SOS Project, Headline Records, The Ojai Women's Club, and on and on ad infinitum. Hyde Park Half seeks to be a sort of antidote to this problem.
The aim is to create a space that will showcase wonderful music a few times a month. The aim is also to create a space that will provide free tutoring and educational support for the Inglewood community. The aim is also to provide free artistic outlets for the Inglewood community. In all, Hyde Park Half seeks to tourniquet our constant lack of venues while also offering much needed community outreach to the city of Inglewood, where the venue is located.
If you wish to play a part in this new project, please email Hyde Park Half directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or check the Hyde Park Half website. There will be a meeting this Sunday, November 8th that you should plan on attending.
Upcoming shows will feature Final Fight, Head High, Let Live, Tigon, Ghostlimb, Rogue State, Forming, Touche Amore, Colorchromatic, Drowning With Our Anchors, Maladie, Acts of Sedition, Graf Orlock, and us.
Here are some details of DANGERS' upcoming shows:
November 28 @ TBA in Visalia, CA w/ Comadre and a bunch of other bands.
December 5 @ a house in San Diego, CA w/ Lewd Acts and Graf Orlock
December 11 @ Hyde Park Half in Inglewood, CA w/ Maladie, Drowning With Our Anchors, Acts of Sedition, and Graf Orlock
In Australian news, please keep bothering us about coming. Down under is the new horizon.
In parting, lady to greatly admire (listen to the interview!),
