heres the flyer i drew for the scoundrel benefit art show.
some friends of mine in the band Scoundrel have the absolute worst luck, and if you could help them out it would be great. their vehicle flipped and they’re alive but all their gear is destroyed. if you’re in chicago, come check out this art show that will benefit them, but if you’re not you should send them a donation via paypal.

Punx invade University Of Chicago’s summer bash and eat ALL the free shit.
There was even a free fucking ice cream truck!!!
This shit was made possible by WHPK and it was the best day of my life
Gas Rag is one of my favorite current Chicago bands.
This is also extremely relevant because this years RIOT FEST line up was just announced and like every other year it’s a pile of garbage with old washed up has bens trying to re-live the glory days or cash in. This fest has even gone to extreme measures to stop DIY punk from “competing” with them. It goes aginst everything I know and love. It’s shit and it can not be helped. DIY for life. Gas Rag gets it
from Hozac 7” EP out March 2013
This song is tuff as fuck.
Population is a super soild goth / deathrock / postpunk band that my awesome friend Jes played synth in.
This track has a kind of updated only theatre of pain era Christian Death vibe, which is to say it is very good.
<3 I just saw this!
(We are still a band! Also we are opening Saturday night of the Blackout this weekend, which means that we are playing the same night as Chrome, which is … what.)
