Ok so yesterday we unloaded about the limited copies of D. Watusi’s DARK PARTY that we’ll have for sale tomorrow at our big birthday show – today it’s time to fill you in on the “secret 7″” that we’re releasing. It’s a single featuring two tracks – the A-Side coming from a collaboration between Ty Segall and Seth Sutton [Useless Eaters] that is one of the gnarliest songs we’ve heard all year titled “I Hate The Kids” and the B-Side features Ty and Dillon Watson [D. Watusi] pounding out a cover of Brian Eno’s “Needles In The Camel’s Eye” – you can hear the A-Side below and check out the B-side here. And that picture up there is the artwork done by our very own Julia Bee. Like we’ve said before – this single will only be available to those in attendance at our 3rd Birthday Show tomorrow night at The Zombieshop. It won’t hit our online shop. It won’t hit your record shop. Gotta come out and party and pick it up in person. A few people have already been asking about prices on these things – the single will cost a regular $5 and the Dark Party LP will run you $10. Keep it cheap for the people! SEE YOU TOMORROW!

In the all-too-apt words of Bill Watterson, the days are just packed. Wow, Ghostface Killer and Raekwon are at Marathon tomorrow, so that will be incredible. For those lamenting old Nashville, Friday is a classic Nashville night with our sweet queen Dolly Parton will be Ryman-rocking meanwhile our favorite mom-country artist Shania Twain will be stadium-rocking at Bridgestone. Not to mention, the same night heavyweights Hans…
