06.08.12 - Flood Yr Face Update

Happy Monday Fine Folk of St. Louis,

As some of you may know, I now reside in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. It's been a pleasant change of pace from the good life in STL and I'm hoping to make some things happen here. As for Flood Yr Face, I will try to carry on to the best of my ability. Below is a show I booked from afar with our good friends, TIGER HATCHERY from Chicago. The show is tonight at Apop Records and I suggest you all go out and have a good time.

Tonight | August 6, 2012

Tiger Hatchery (Fierce Free Jazz Unit from Chicago, IL | Billington, Forbes, Young)*

Brainstems (Up-and-Coming Garage Punk from St. Louis)
Wamhoda (The Original Swamp Kid in the Mix from St. Louis)
Dave Stone (Legendary Sax Master from St. Louis)

*Andrew Scott Young of Tiger Hatchery will be touring with comedian Mike Hirsch throughout the later half of August. The two will be performing in St. Louis at Kaveh Razani's Space on Wednesday, August 22nd.

Also taking place later this evening: Dum Dum Girls and The Yowl at Off Broadway.


Alien conspiracy theory punks, MAXIMUM EFFORT, will be releasing their new record on Thursday, August 9 at their CBGB show with Chicago's Canadian Rifle. Noted by many as St. Louis' BEST punk band, ME destroy with solid songwriting and electrically charged energy. Canadian Rifle's brand of melodi-punk will surely keep the heads bopping as they rival rock n' roll degenerates Doom Town and slime freaks Trauma Harness.

I've had the pleasure of seeing this intense, hallucinatory exploration of color, form and motion screened and scored twice. raw sensation / emotion / nerves - absolutely mesmerizing. August 10 will be the premiere of a brand new film from the visual king of St. Louis.
