[HvEXAS] Tuesday at VALENTINE's!

Hey everyone - hi again everyone! Last Saturday's show was amazing - we were really happy with how everything turned out. BIG thanks to Steve Pierce and the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy for letting us collaborate with them. And an even bigger thanks to Weasel Walter, Mary Halvorson, and Peter Evans, who put on a beautiful set, as did the Empty Cage Quartet.

On to the next thing now! We're presenting an unusual show outside of our normal monthly events on Tuesday Sept. 30th. This one will be at Valentine's on New Scotland Avenue in Albany. We really hope you can be there - We'd certainly love the support :)  Most importantly, it's going to be a great night of music, only $5 too!! 

It'll be the first Valentine's appearance for Century Plants, featuring ASAC's Ray Hare and Eric Hardiman. Blues Control are an amazing psychedelic duo from Brooklyn, with an LP on Woodsist and an upcoming on on Siltbreeze. Psychedelic Horeshit hail from Ohio, have graced the pages of Spin Magazine, and apparently stole the show from absolutely everybody at SXSW in Austin, TX. Finally, Pink Reason also come from NYC and they offer a fantastic and unique take on garage rock.

So just in case you're wondering what all that babble means -- the sounds will range from deconstructed, shambling garage rock to lo-fi pop nuggets (think early pavement or GBV!) to trippy psychedeliic beauty to raging cathartic drones. And I'm sure there will be plenty of stops in between.  If you need more persuading, just let me know and I'll get you some of the press these phenomenal groups are accumulating!

Definitely another ASAC event not to miss! Holler if you have any questions...
