So, Battleship, my friends' dub-influenced hardcore band (Sorry, I hate that
description; theirs, though a little pretentious, is better: "too smart for
rock and roll, too dumb for art rock") from Oakland, CA, will be touring the
US this summer, and are looking for a show on October 2 in the Triangle. I
think they've already unsuccessfully hit up the Night Light's booker.
Here's the link to their website: http://home.san.rr.com/tasteslikepoison/
Here's a link to a cover story on them in The San Francisco Bay Guardian,
the Bay Area's best and largest independent weekly:
And here's a link to an mp3 of one of the better songs from their record
"Presents Princess", recorded by Greg Ashley of the Gris Gris (whose record
I found at Schoolkids Records on my second day in Chapel Hill. Does anyone
remember seeing them play around here?):
Battleship are pretty neat, especially live. And they set up shows in
Oakland and SF. Any ideas on venues or complementary bands? Do any
warehouses in the area host shows?
