snakesonaplane071206.jpg2006 will go down in history as the year of the snakes. Just in time for the August 18 release of the insta-cult film Snakes on a Plane, Crustacean Records have announced that the new Awesome Snakes release, Venom, is in their office and pre-orders will be hitting the mail on Friday. That night there will also be a release party at the King Club featuring Mad Trucker Gone Mad, The Gusto and the Goddamn Doo Wop Band.

Something To Do are fed up with all of the grass stained and ripped jeans they have been seeing at their shows. Please, for the sake of STD, take their advice and “put on your best pants” if you plan on attending their Bastille Day show in Milwaukee on July 15.

It may be just a snippet, but it is a sign of great things to come. The Dorothy Heralds have less then a minute of a new track called Nora featuring guest MC Rob DZ up on their [url= ]MySpace page[/url]. It is very much worth taking the time to check out.

Moriano will be taking leave as vocalist for Elvehjem to pursue graduate studies. The band will be pulling a Van Halen and pursuing new vocal options (most likely with better success).

Awesome Car Funmaker have kindly offered up two songs off the chart busting new album Of Lovers and Monsters on [url= ]their MySpace page[/url].

If you want to preview some of the tracks coming your way from malice in Wonderland, they have some new unfinished versions on [url= ]their MySpace page.[/url]

The Eyebeams, who released one of the best Madison releases in 2005 and then promptly broke up, will be having a reunion of sorts on July 23 at the King Club.

The Pistols at Dawn have a photo gallery of their first show at Zuzu Cafe.

Stephanie Rearick is heading out on tour starting on Friday. Note to all of my friends back east in CT who read this to keep track of me, she will be making a stop at The Space in Hamden on July 27.
