In honor of their upcoming album Champions of Breakfast, our friends, the non-stop hiphop, snap crackle pop punks Don't Talk to the Cops are challenging anyone with an Instagram (everybody's getting those, you know) account to a BREAKFAST CONTEST! All you have to do is post a photo of your best, most creative breakfast with @donttalktothecops #ChampionsOfBreakfast.
The winner gets a copy of the new record, DtttC cereal, a T-shirt, and a button pack! Also, have you seen this poster?
The Lonely Forest are playing the Crocodile this Saturday! It's their first local show in quite some time, if I remember correctly. The band was holed up for the winter, writing and recording their new album, so not only is it our first chance to see 'em in a while, but the band says they will also have new material, from their upcoming record, to share with us. Super!
Crystal Castles are playing the Moore Theatre next week! Want to go for free? We have a pair of tickets to give away! To enter all you have to do is send your first and last name to email@example.com with Crystal Castles in the subject line. Easy.
I spent most of my morning at an estate sale in Madrona where a mountain of great records were being sold for very reasonable prices. As I was happily packing up to leave, the person in charge of the sale told me that I could pick two more records, "on the house." Of course, without a beat, I responded, "I'll need a ladder to get up there!" Geez, I'm sure lucky that I don't have any children. I'd embarrass the living shit out of them all of the time.
I picked these two records up, as they're both pretty great. I already have them, so I want to give them to you. Simply write a haiku about anything (or King Diamond, something else related, etc) and I'll pick the best one and send them to you in the mail. NEET!
On Sunday, March 3rd, you're gonna want to be at Chop Suey because Nu Sensae, Broken Water, and Haunted Horses are playing!
And speaking of Nu Sensae, next month the Vancouver band will release a 7" on Suicide Squeeze with the Coathangers—it features this song, "Throw":
You want to go to the show, right? Of course you do! And Chop Suey has given us a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky Line Out read. To enter, just e-mail your first and last name to firstname.lastname@example.org with Nu Sensae in the subject line.
Quicksand has reunited and they're playing the Showbox at the Market tomorrow night! Surprisingly, there are still tickets available here, but who knows how long those will last. Thankfully, we have a pair to give away!
Former Seattle (now Michigan/Austin/Los Angeles) punks THE SPITS are playing Chop Suey this Thursdsay the 17th at 8 pm! You know you wanna go! Why not go for free? We've got a pair of tickets to give away. The band is calling it the "2nd Annual Mid-Winter Blazin' Blowout," and they're also promising "hot chicks" and "free food." In honor of this mysterious "free food"—the *fifth* person who emails email@example.com with the words "Spit Burger" in the subject line, WINS.
This show is 21+. You should probably bring extra napkins.
UPDATE: We haz the winner. Congrats F. Finnie!
Maybe drummer Ronald McDonald is bringing some food?
