Your Heart is a Hemophiliac…

DUN DUN DUNNNNNN

PITCHERS!

Open Mic Night for Apotheca in Goffstown.  Not sure if I ever uploaded this.  WHERE’S MY MONEY COREY? HMMM?

I may have already uploaded this one too.  NO CARE EVER.

This show was really awesome.  AND I really liked most of this flyer.

Definitely one of my favorites

Definitely NOT one of my favorites.  Tried something different, failed.

Sticker design that never got made.

Drawing for a Billy Raygun shirt D SOL and I did behind the rest of the bands’ backs.  Take that.

Here’s the finished product:

Ask me if you want one.  Hand screen printed on whatever you want.

Poster for WUNH’s Hi-Fi (weird star) Fest.  Colors are off because its a shitty JPEG.  If you want the real version lemme know.

Front and back (it’s a gatefold cover silly) of the upcoming Billy Raygun/Lipstick Homicide split.  Photograph of Sephie, my floor, and words all by me.  Help by D Sol.  Edited digitally with Photoshop.  Nothing is digital besides the black and white and halftone effects.  Pretty neat.

I also did the layout for the inserts and the labels on the vinyl, with Bill Pinkel providing the other set of art.  The release is a ‘reversible’ LP jacket with two entirely different covers on each side.  YOU choose which one you want to display!  SUCH POWER!!  Screen printed by Shout Out Loud and should be available June 14th.

That’s it for today.  I have been incredibly lazy/burned out since doing all this stuff.  We have some shows coming up, so expect more flyers.  I also have a finished first Boy Commander Rex comic I haven’t uploaded since it hasn’t been released.  The second one is getting started.

Couple things:

We had this show for Matt’s birthday the other day and I made the flyer.  It was really great and every band was tons of fun.  Check them out if you haven’t heard them!

BLACK WINE

THE YOUNG LEAVES

BILLY RAYFUN

POISON IVY LEAGUE

Speaking of The Young Leaves, I also made this NEW TSHIRT!

Message them and figure out how to buy it!  I’m wearing it right now and its THE COMFIEST SHIRT EVER.  Also, it makes you look way cooler then you actually are.

Last note, check out this band featuring members of Cheeky/Used Kids/Seasick: BIG EYES

They are really good powerpoppy kinda rock n’ roll stuff.

You’ll abhor me…

Hey I never update you blog, I am a bad blog owner.  I’d probably be lying if I said more updates in the future.  Here’s to wishful thinking!

Come to this shit on Monday! It’s going to be wild.

Lemuria (NY), The Tattle Tales (also NY), The Credentials (MA), and Billy Raygun (Mars)
Also, come to this tomorrow:

I have a bunch of stuff I could scan in.  Its going to require me being less lazy though.  LOVE YOU BYE.

I don’t miiiiiiind…

WHADDUP?

I’ll try to update this more, but I always say that and it never happens.  Maybe if I say, “I won’t update this ever” it’ll get updated more.

Here are some things!

This is a picture I did for a flyer for a show at our humble abode:

BOY COMMANDER REX VS. THE SILENT SAMURAI MIME BROS.

Here is the whole flyer (its in French because I think I’m funny):

It already happened, and it was fun.

More shows @ SH5: April 30th – Halfway to Halloween, May 1st – Black Wine/What Happened?/Young Leaves/1TBA, May 7th – The Measure [SA]/More TBA, June 7th – Lemuria, The Tattle Tales, The Credentials, Billy Raygun, June 20th – The Pillowfights, Smokejumper, Billy Raygun, Georgian.

Expect flyers for all of these.

I’m listening to the Buzzcocks all day today because I’m psyched to go see them at the Paradise in Boston May 17th.  I can’t believe they still play, and according to Bovio and other accounts, they still rip.  Here is some stuff by them!

Another Music in a Different Kitchen (1978)

Love Bites (1978)

Listen, enjoy.  They’re one of my favorite bands ever.  If you have never heard them, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??

Lastly, here is my band’s demo.  Fast, angry hardcore from New Hampshire.  Hope you like it!
