Monsters Reviewed by Cassette Gods

Dig this review of Monsters from the always-at-it Cassette Gods:

“Scrawling jagged scribbles of tonality on basalt surfaces, Rip Room deface monuments to lesser rock acts, jamming dynamite in the crevices and lighting the fuse.”

End The Backlog Benefit at Noise Records

Saturday August 25th! This is a benefit for an organization that is doing important work legislatively and otherwise to ensure that the backlog of the hundreds of thousands (!) of untested rape kits in this country get tested.

Why is there a backlog? “The backlog of untested rape kits represents the failure of the criminal justice system to take sexual assault seriously, prioritize the testing of rape kits, protect survivors, and hold offenders accountable.”

Hope to see you there!

End The Backlog
