FREAKIN’ WEEKEND VIII

(artwork by Kelly Ahrens)
THE FINAL ONE // THE FUCKING WEEKEND
Contrary to popular belief, WOW, the Freakin’ Fucking Weekend is upon us for the final year – 2017 – the year of Butthole America. Let us take a moment of silence. . . . .
Thank you Madams, Sirs.
Soooo this year, what’s up? I’m talkin’ ’bout hot night shows at The End & a blowout at Exit/In on Saturday, day shows at Fort Houston O.G., plus DJs Nashy’s Dead willl be conjuring the festival spirit the night before the festival with our buds at Third Man to get the vibe right (more on that later)
You can count on ridiculous 3″ buttons by Domo, Cam and Dillon on the way – free as usual at day shows.
Be wary of crowd surfing with readiness to support. Without a doubt, no racists, no homophobes, no chronically violent and no sexual aggressors. If anyone feels uncomfortable by any of the above types at our shows, don’t hesitate to talk to an organizer and we’ll take care of it.
As always, hit us up if you have any issue paying and we will hook you up, no questions asked. Here’s the first batch of the artists playing
FREAK THE WORLD

THE RUNDOWN – 2.6.2017 – 2.12.2017

Winter may be slowing down the touring shows and turning parties into bonfires, but it is not slowing down our spirits. We have some things in store for you pretties in the next week or so. Keep your eyes peeled. Until then, you can catch a reading from Chicago’s own Rachel Bell this Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, it’s a full-on Southern electronic music blowout with George Clanton from NY with locals Meth Dad and Future DZ opening. Saturday is another big day with the 3rd annual girl group tribute extravaganza She’s A Rebel featuring all your favorite Nashville femmes AND THEN more hot electronics at Wilburn Street Tavern (which seems to be happening more often lately) with TRAM Planet Crew, a newer collaboration between some fave locals. Get out and stay out!

THE RUNDOWN – 1.18.2017 – 1.22.2017

Rundown

Apologies for coming to you late this week. We’ve been hard at work out in those salt mines, and these things don’t write themselves. Alas, your rundown… There’s a poetry reading tomorrow, but it seems you’ll have to find the address yourself. Friday brings the opportunity to see local faves Savoy Motel, Idle Bloom, Sun Seeker, and Daddy Issues all for free at Mercy Lounge. The old timers take over this weekend with Wings’ Denny Laine performing Band On the Run on Saturday and Emmylou Harris playing City Winery on Sunday. And you lucky duck, Boston’s Adult closes out the week at the East Room.

THE RUNDOWN 1.9.2017 – 1.15.2017

Rundown

DARN RUNDOWN. Here we are again. A special shoutout to people off Facebook – this is dedicated to you this week (you know who you are and are probably acutely aware harhar). Alright so this week, I’m talkin bout the worldwide debut of Spodee Girl, the Marlee-fronted sibling of Jimmy-approved punkers Spodee Boy, at the Cobra. Ranch Ghost plays an in-store at Third Man to kick off ur million-show-TGIF — Kandyland film premiere later, East Room show too, and did I mention Dave Bersell is moving to New Yak? (crying tears as a good one leaves for a new opportunity). Say your goodbyes at his reading as part of Ursus Americanus series. One love to my people and a word of encouragement I overheard someone at Turnip Truck say this week “I told my dad creatives are seriously important” lolol too good

THE RUNDOWN 1.2.2017 – 1.8.2017

Rundown

A month has passed since Nashville FD’s crackdown on local DIY venues, and the effects are overwhelmingly apparent. The shows aren’t nil though, and those same kind promoters from before are already finding ways to dodge the snag. DOG from New York play at Betty’s tomorrow, Soccer Mommy play the End on Thursday, and Roger Ebert’s 1970 cult classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is the midnight movie at Belcourt on Friday. Our lord and savior Willie Nelson plays War Memorial on Saturday while our prodigal son DOMO celebrates his 21st b-day at Dream House and there’s a good house (???) show out there if you know who to ask. Sunday is a Monster Truck Rally, cos why not?
