CORRECTION: Cephalopods Rock it Collectively Saturday NOW AT LA CASA

Correction all,

The house show show on Saturday has been merged with the awesome Radio CPR benefit at La Casa on Saturday. Here are the new details:

The ridiculously awesome Radio CPR benefit show we'd planned for this Saturday, November 13, just rose to a new level of ridiculous awesomeness. We now have five bands to rock your world. They are -- in reverse order -- with notes!

S-PRCSS
(hypnotic post-punk, with a 90s dischord vibe. Reminds me of Lungfish with Wire or Gang of Four for a rhythm section)
Cephalopods
(ex-Black Eyes, Early Humans, Et At It)
The Eye the Ear the Arm
(electro-awesomeness from MA. ex-La Mia Vita Violenta)
America Hearts
(stripped-down indie pop, catchy and sweet. Reminds me of the Breeders, with the grunge scoured off).
Fell Types
(early 90s style indie rock, riffs-a-plenty. Reminds me Dinosaur Jr. without the solos).

I imagine this show will rule. It will also be chock full of human bodies. Come out and listen. Doors at 6:00, sets are short, we'll be over by 11:00 as per usual. $5 cover benefits Radio CPR. La Casa is at 3166 Mt. Pleasant St. NW, WDC. A few blocks from the Columbia Heights metro on the green line. Spread the word.


Just dropping a line about two Ruffian-related shows coming up this week.

First up Hugh McElroy is playing a solo set on Thursday with Tereu Tereu, Conductive Alliance, and Listen Listen. Hugh's set will be mostly solo a capella with odd bits of samples and tape-based effects. Tereu Tereu killed it at the Positive Force Punk Rock Flea Market on Saturday and is sure not to disappoint.

Then, on Saturday, Cephalopods is playing at the MVB with Tidelands, Good Offices, and The Eye, The Ear, The Arm. The Eye, The Ear, The Arm features members of Ruffian band La Mi Vida Violenta fresh off some recording and with a new line-up. Hugh saw Good Offices at their first show in September and was impressed. NOTE: This show was going to be moved up to not conflict with the La Casa show the same night but it couldn't be worked out sadly. Both shows will be awesome, so don't sweat which one you go to.

Details below:


11/11 - Tereu Tereu, Conductive Alliance, Hugh McElroy, Listen Listen
@ Everlasting Life 8:30pm $5
2928 Georgia Ave NW


11/13 - The Ear, The Eye & The Arm, Cephalopods, Good Offices + TBA

Hope to see you there,

Ruffians
