waiting for nothing

I promise you, more info on DZ13 will be released shortly. Production is well under way and the tapes look beautiful. This one's definitely to help you keep calm, cool and collected this summer, and I'm very excited to share these serene sensations with you all in the near future.

For now, it's that time again to invite everybody in the Washington DC area out to the Dougout for a night of visceral post-punk, gloomy puke pop, and emocore at the next DZ live event. Click the flyer below for more details.


Vancouver's Terror Bird has announced her next release. On June 7, 'Clubs' will be available on cassette from SVN SNS RECORDS. Get back on the darkwave groove by peeking Nikki's new video "Waiting For Nothing":

Lastly, for those of you lucky enough to be in the Austin area this weekend, Adam Torres and Caitlin Krauss-Torres will be teaming up to give you a free live show this Saturday at Cenote, and remember to check back on Adam's bandcamp each week for more gentle serenades on his Golden Children demo compilation.



Adam Torres has been quietly compiling demos and publishing them every week. So far there have been four tracks shared off the 'Golden Children' demos, and if the trend continues Adam will provide us with more of his beautifully soulful blues folk next Monday. Until then, those of you near Austin, TX can see Adam perform live on Saturday at Beerland. Keep an eye on his bandcamp for new songs, and click play below to hear what's already been released.

Before I go, I just wanted to thank all the bands and everyone who came out for the gig last Thursday to see Foul Swoops, Flesh Panthers, Neonates, Sneaks, and a special impromptu set from The Morons. The show was great and the crowd was solid, and without those things the Dougout wouldn't be as special as it is.


may day

Production on the next release has begun, and I'm very excited to share more details in the near future! Hold your horses for the time being, but check back soon for more info on DZ13.

I'm hosting another show tonight featuring some awesome bands, so this is a final reminder and invitation to anybody in the DC area looking to catch some great music. Music will start around 9, and for more details just click the flyer below.
