Looking for hairdye... [19 Jun 2009|07:13pm]

cold_art
Hi there,
my name is kaylie, i'm 17, and i live in South Africa.
I dunno if this is the best place to ask, but i'll give it a shot.
I'm looking to buy Special Effects hairdye, but as you can imagine, in South Africa we don't have such things.
So basically i'm asking, are there any shops in Oregon, particularly in Grant's Pass, that sell Special Effects products? Can someone please give me a little list of shop names? Please...
Many thanks...
:) :) :)

RETOX TONIGHT [06 Feb 2009|11:19am]

[ mood | drunk ]

OK SO!!! retox tonight!!!
CRAMPS TRIBUTE/PSYCHOBILLY KNOCKOUT!!!!
6-8 PM pacific time
FRIDAY NIGHT
http://www.praradio.com

the cramps were one of the most influential bands that emerged out of the early new york punk scene. they coined the term 'psychobilly,' though they did not think of themselves as psychobilly. we owe an incredible amount to them.

i will play lots of songs about cars, going to hell, being naughty, bad-ass chicks, and drinking.

so come tip a cold one back with me as i take you through two hours of low-down, rowdy, ass-whompin' music in tribute to the mad mad daddy.

who with: dj kenny and adrian h and the wounds. this is a cd release party for adrian h's new self-titled disc
where: lola's room, at the crystal ballroom.
how much: 10$
why: because we haven't played since august and it's about time!

also, we've just confirmed a show with portland's new joy division tribute unknown pleasures.

who with: broken bodies (misfits tribute) and unknown pleasures (joy division tribute)
where: the tonic lounge, 3100 ne sandy blvd
how much: 6$
why: because punk and post-punk is good stuff.

7 feb details:
theXplodingboys will open and close for adrian h and the wounds' cd release. accompanied by dj kenny (probably the most underrated and best 80s dj in portland), this will be an evening to remember.

tXb are unveiling some new favourite b-sides at this show and it will be the first show to kick off 2009 for us. we're eXcited to be playing some new songs from the top, pornography and kiss me..., and even some non-album tracks will be played!

show is 21+, $10, tXb hits the stage at 9 and midnight. adrian will go on at approximately 10.45
the crystal ballroom (which hosts lola's room) is located at sw 14th and w burnside

6 mar details:
we're eXcited to announce that we will be playing with the brand new joy division tribute called unknown pleasures. rounding out the lineup will be broken bodies, a misfits tribute. so there you have it... all shades of the greys of punk in one room!

the show will be friday 6 mar and will be 6 bucks. tXb hits the stage second. unlike most of our shows of late, we won't be going on really early. and we'll be playing a shorter, but eXplosive, set.

so come out with your eyeliner, tight pants, spikes, leather jackets, fishnets... you know the story. we'll party like it's 1982.

i'd love to play local bands on my show, however, i play psychobilly and punk based genres so forget it if you are an indie band, sorry.

please help me track bands down and get info on when they are doing shows so i can announce on retox radio http://www.praradio.com/mainpage.htm fridays 6-8 PM.

we are in the process of changing web sites, so this will be in effect next week and for now the time slot lists the show that left, but i am doing my show at that time.

this is a brand new show and i really want to help promote what is going on with local bands and venues.
i will have live interviews as well, providing ya'll wanna do them!

our studios are currently downtown portland but will be moving to broadway and weidler in the next month or so, sharing a space with a brewery and other local artist shops and such. that, obviously, will kick ass.


also please feel free to contact me with what you might like to hear on this show, regardless of where you are.

update on sunday's Bajskorv show *REGIMENT ADDED TO BILL* [18 Feb 2008|04:45pm]

jonathanchrist


This sunday DC's Industrial Noise artists Bajskorv will hit Portland on their west coast leg of their US tour
with locals !Go-Yo! and Regiment.



excerpt from ReGen's review of Bajskorv's latest album SCARS AND STRIPES
"Right from the onset of "Kapital Hell," listeners are treated to a sample-laden collage of harsh percussion befitting a rundown factory and haunting arpeggios that simultaneously display a subtle classical sensibility and a modern horror show. The rest of the album follows suit with each track spiraling out of control into a dismal array of sonic chaos and nightmarish environments, topped off by Monarez's grating vocals that caw and rasp their way in and out of coherence. From the sweeps of detuning pads and squelches of "Pain" to the twinkling ambience of "City of God," in which we hear even traces of what could be melodies, Bajskorv aren't your run-of-the-mill industrial band.""

"Reminiscent of the more experimental and abstract works of Skinny Puppy and Throbbing Gristle, Bajskorv is not comfortable music; images of scrapheap cemeteries will surely fill your head as you listen to this album."

"...if you have an ear for the darker, more ambient side of industrial music, Bajskorv's Scars and Stripes will satiate your palate quite effectively." - Ilker Yücel


please come out and help this great industrial band on their first tour and witness this sonic barrage!

Gene Loves Jezebel in Dante's [01 Feb 2007|08:06pm]

djcoldheart
This goes to all the Portland peeps; do you happen to know if Dante's
will be the venue for the Portland appearance of Gene Loves Jezebel on
March 11? GLJ's site lists it, but Dante's has something else.
Considering the first tour around here fell through I want to make
sure the info's correct...
