reign in blood

The date 6/6/6 comes along once in a millenium. And, while I can think of several great things happening on the date (Ladyhawk's album gets released and the Cobalt reopens), there is one event that shines above everything else when it comes to appropriateness, on the ultimate day of the beast. Yes, this Wednesday is the National Day of Slayer. From the official website:

Official Statement on Participation

# Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
# Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
# Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
# Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.

DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.

Taking that participation to a problematic level

# Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer.
# Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
# Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
# Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
# Kill the neighbor's dog and blame it on Slayer.


Please note: From Blown Speakers does not condone harming animals. Our policy on vandalism is admittedly pretty lax, though.

In much less satanic news, MSTRKRFT is playing a venue TBA with the Juan MacLean on July 28th. Those guys that do the Kids on Saturday's at the Columbia are putting it on (which means it will be awesome).

Sarah Harmer is playing in the good 'ol outdoors. She'll grace Malkin Bowl on August 20th. Tix are onsale now.

now playing: Jamie Lidell - The City (Four Tet Remix)
