Headache City Record Release this Friday, Feb 3rd
It's gonna be garage a rockin' at the Bottle Friday night. Headache City celebrates the release of their first full length record on SSR. Fellow garage rockers Dutchmasters (Memphis, Goner-Records) and Turpentine Brothers (Boston, Alive Records) open. We (THE LATEST) opened for Turpentine Brothers in NYC back in November. That was a great show, don't miss them!
Headache City got a few songs on their MySpace page so you can sample the goods. Be warned, these are catchy tunes and they might be stuck in your head for a while (currently stuck on "Knee Jerk Reaction").
After this HC hits the road for a series of shows throughout the Midwest and then on to Texas and the West Coast. That actually gives you three reasons to come out. First to celebrate the record release of course. Second to give 'em a big send off. And third to congratulate Mikey (guitar, vox) who just returned from his honeymoon.
I recorded Headache City's very first show over two years ago. They rocked straight out of the gate. Unfortunately I don't have the proof. The CD disappeared that very night; either taken by some unscrupulous fan or it may have slid deep into the belly of the CD Recorder. I haven't taken the darn thing apart to find out (and put some closure on this terrible tragedy). HOWEVER, Headache City came down to the Sunken Monastery Studio to record their first demo. That was back in the day when Darcy Dark was drumming and occasionally singing for them. I put one of those songs up as a track du jour. You won't hear it at the show since it's a DD tune so check it out here.
