Weekend Post: Eternal Summers TONIGHT!, Show at Happy’s TOMORROW! and Beach House.

 Show At Happy's January 24th

First, just want to say that the Bastards of Fate show last Thrusday was FANTASTIC. We’re going to put some pictures (perhaps a clip) up very soon, just to make you feel bad that you slept on it.

In the meantime…

Eternal Summers are playing tonight at the Bazaar at 9:30 (note the time change!) with Drunk Tigers. $5 at the door.

– On Sunday, January 24th (tomorrow), The Bastards of Fate will be at Happy’s Flea Market w/Heevahava, Poe Mac, and Nancy & 2 Meteors. Show starts at 8, $5 at the door.

-Finally, as I posted on my upcoming music of 2010 post, Beach House have a new record coming out next Tuesday. What does that have to do with local music? Absolutely nothing. But it’s still fantastic news. Video!

Happy Weekend, guys.


The Sad Cobras/ Hot Lava 7″ Split & Impose Magazine interview with the Magic Twig Community

We here at Scenic Recovery are pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated 7″ split from The Sad Cobras & Hot Lava! The split was self-released by both groups and each side is comprised of 3 songs per band. The Sad Cobras on side A and Hot Lava on side B. The split also comes with a Hot Lava guitar pick and free digital download of all 6 songs for all you iPod/mp3 users out there! You can get this split either straight from the bands themselves or at Bazaar Consignments. This is a well crafted release from two great Magic Twig Community bands. These catchy tunes are worth copping!

In other Magic Twig Community news, the collective was interviewed recently by Impose Magazine for their “Labeled” feature. You can read the interview on their site HERE!

While you’re there download the FREE digital sampler from the Magic Twig Community. Including songs from The Young Sinclairs, The Sad Cobras, SUNKING!, Eternal Summers, The Missionaries and Rootstone Jug Band!
