Lots happening this weekend, starting tonight at O’Leaver’s with Baby Tears 7-inch release party (that I thought was last week at The Sandbox). Their single, “Homeless Corpse” b/w “She Sells Eggs” is out on Rainy Road Records and will be for sale at the show for just $5. It’s a rough, rough ride. You can check out the track and even download a copy right here.
Baby Tears also put their entire Rusty Years album online at Soundcloud for stream and download before the Doom Town cassette release in 2012. You can check that out right here.
Opening tonight’s show at O’Leaver’s is The Fucking Party, who are headed out on a six-date tour with Yuppies starting Dec. 26 (Baby Tears will join The Fucking Party on the road Jan. 4). $5, 9:30 p.m. See you there.
Also tonight, Mitch Gettman is hosting a CD release show at Slowdown Jr. for his new album, We Are the Mad Ones. Opening is red hot punkers Snake Island! and The Big Deep. Your $7 cover gets you a copy of Gettman’s long player. Show starts at 9.
There’s a pretty sweet benefit show slated for The Sandbox tonight featuring Capgun Coup, Howard, Sun Settings and Places We Slept. $5, 9 p.m. More info here.
Finally, The Filter Kings are playing a free show tonight over at The Sydney. Let the good times roll. Starts at 9.
Tomorrow night (Saturday) it’s Little Brazil’s first show since early summer at The Waiting Room when they open for The Envy Corp along with InDreama and Great American Desert. $8, 9 p.m.
Also Saturday night, Qing Jao play at O’Leaver’s with Ideal Cleaners and Techlepathy. $5, 9:30 p.m.
