BTMI Final Goodby Finale2013-11-21 by John Lennon b.h.w. STAFF | 57 Comments
|BTMI! have announced the details for their goodbye show. Details from the band have been reproduced below, with emphasis added by me, the author of this news article:|
BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! FAREWELL SHOW
1.19.14 // WARSAW // BROOKLYN
On January 19th 2014, Bomb the Music Industry! will be playing our final show at Warsaw in Brooklyn. Over the past eight years this band has taken us to three continents, countless houses, basements, bars, venues, a few backyards, a lot of tasty restaurants and introduced us to most of our best friends in the world.
We'd like to have one last big "fuuuuuuck yeah!" with everybody who has made the past eight years so special for us. We're doing this on a Sunday of a four-day weekend while college is not in session, with the hopes that anyone who would like to make the trip will be able to do so. Or if you think we're like the worst, then, y'know, just stay wherever you are.
I should also mention that the show is $15. Unfortunately, in trying to find the best spot for this show - and in order to keep it all ages - we ended up with higher room expenses than our usual shows, thus making us raise the price over our standard $10. To offset this, we are offering a free live recording of the show to everyone who buys a ticket. You don't have to do anything, just buy a ticket and after the recording has been mixed, we'll e-mail you a copy. Holy fuck. Easy stuff. Thanks fr understanding.
ALSO PLAYING ARE CHEAP GIRLS AND...
We'll be announcing supports as the days go on, but they're gonna be super fucking awesome. Bomb will be playing two sets, and will transmogrify one last time from dry, relatively sober individuals into the sweaty, drunken, wistful messes that you hate to hug after shows.
It's kind of crazy to think of when this project first started. The major label excess, the RIAA suing students & grandparents for downloading music, releasing music for free or suggested donation being a laughable idea. It's really great to see how the landscape has changed to a much more level playing field - where everyone has the ability (and is encouraged) to share their music with the world. We've been lucky to be part of a wonderful group of bands, and watch a handful of buddies transcend what is thought to be possible by kids in basements jamming. To have a band called Bomb the Music Industry! seems anachronistic. That boring greedy shit monster has been in its death shakes for years.
To everyone who has supported us and our weirdness over the years, thank you so much.
every1 from sputnik shud go!

Digging: Marching Church - This World Is Not Enough
most important band
why cant i live in new york whyyyyyyy
cos u suck
I've never been in love but I saw Bomb The Music Industry once.
I was drunk and screamed too loud over the falsetto in "You Still Believe In Me."
And I thought about the way his catastrophes could make everything okay
well i totally fucked up on getting tickets to this but they added a second show since the final one sold out in 20 minutes and i was able to get tickets to that one so what's up
if tixx for that are still up tomorrow i might go to both
that show will be so incredibly smelly
what good punk show isn't
will smell of a thousand sweaty gooches
Digging: Sufjan Stevens - Carrie and Lowell
my teacher knows someone in this band forgot who
why is everyone in long island connected to each other
its probably cause theres a million people in btmi
And they're all in like a million other bands so there's networking for ya.
If I was somewhat older and somewhat wealthier, I would crawl out of my little hole in the Australian ground, hop on a plane, go see both of these sets, hug Jeff, probs say something funny to John, and then go home.
Digging: Godspeed You! Black Emperor - 'Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress'
