Thu, 27 Oct 2016 15:00:01 -0400(image) Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves has re-released a number of his side project albums on vinyl. Candy Now!, Penetration Moon, and Earl Lee Grace's Blackgrass, all of which are groups that include Blag, will be out via Burger Records near the end of the year. Candy Now! was the euro-pop record that also featured Angelina Moysov of Persephone's Bees. Black Grass featured Blag in his country/hillbilly tinged-ed alter ego Earl Lee Grace. Penetration Moon was the Dwarves so-called "glam rock" spin off band that played covers of bands including Dead Boys, Johnny Thunders, and others.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:00:01 -0400(image) Upstate New York's Pentimento released a new music video over at CLRVYNT. The song is called "Sink or Swim" and it is off of their 2015 release titled I, No Longer . The video footage was taken from a hometown show the band played last spring.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:30:01 -0400(image) Rapper Kevin Gates recently was sentenced to six months in jail, with consideration for time served, for kicking a concert attendee by a Florida state court. The jury of six women found Gates guilty of battery. According to court testimony, last year, during one of gates' Florida concerts, Miranda Dixon kept trying to grab Gates' feet. After trying to shoo Dixon away and move to the other side of the stage, Gates became frustrated when the grabbing continued. Gates then kicked Dixon. At trial, Gates tried to claim he was acting in self-defense. However, the testimony of the security guards was damning for Gates, as they testified that Gates simply could have backed up. This ruling is unusual in that while civil complaints against bands are common from physical altercations, criminal charges are much more rare (at least in the US). Of course, this is important to the punk scene where violent and non-violent physical contact with fans is likely more common than at Hip Hop shows. As you may know, similar incidents have occurred to bands including NOFX, Off With Their Heads, Lamb of God, Screeching Weasel, and The story So Far.
