End The Backlog Update

Thanks to everyone who came out to Noise​ Records yesterday. We matched the generous donations made by all of you and so together we raised $172 to help end the backlog of hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits across the United States.

Special thanks to Sara at Noise for hosting us, and Burner Herzog & WOE for performing.

If you weren’t able to make it out, you can still help by donating or getting involved at endthebacklog.org

Two rape kit reform bills, S.B. 1449 and A.B. 3118, are pending in the California legislature. S.B. 1449 has passed the Senate and will be going to the Assembly floor for a final vote and A.B. 3118 has passed the Assembly and will be going to the Senate floor for its final vote.

Please contact your state legislators now. Urge them to vote Yes on S.B. 1449 and A.B. 3118 before August 31.

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!

Rip Room at The Exhibition Dungeon in Chico

Chico friends, we’ll be there this Friday with bud rippers Externs and some very fine bands in a very fine basement being hosted by the very rad Exhibition Tapes let’s RIP


WOWEE ZOWEE that was a rad weekend. Many thanks to Baron Jarred Von Hand for organizing everything for PRF West 2018, to Jordan Sobolew for running sound, to The Golden Bull for hosting, and to Conan Neutron for capturing our newest jams live. There were too many rad performance this weekend to count, but holy shit go see DRUG APTS if you can. Stellar.

Our next Bay Area shows aren’t til July, but we’ll be up in Chico on 6/1, and Arcata 6/2, so spread the word to your friends who reside in such beautiful places. See you out there!
