From Democracy Now! “In these times of war and elections, movements and uprisings, we need independent media more than ever. The commercial media serves as a mouthpiece for corporate and government interests—giving a platform to the pundits and the pollsters who know so little about so much, explaining the world to us and getting it so wrong.”

Banny Groove (LA), Hot Heavy Liquid, pleasure systems

Saturday 5/15. Ghost House. 7pm. $5 notaflof.

This event page keeps poping up on my Facebook page and getting me all excited. It is happening in my backyard, but I have been so tired recently that each time it pops up it hits me like a new and enchanting suprise– finally, I think, the spring time show I have been looking for. Banny Groove is touring across the country and is stoping to spend one whole night to fufill our  most glam dreams. Banny Groove will be joined by Clarke Sondermann, of the Washboard Abs, manifesting as Pleasure Systems, and local Olympia champs Hot Heavy Liquid, preforming live for the first time. Show will be starting early to make good use of the sunshine and quell the neighbors, bring money for the touring band– I promise, they deserve it.
