panty party hand cramp

Fake Shark-Real Zombie are finally releasing their debut, Zebra! Zebra! domestically, and to celebrate, they're throwing a party at the Chair Factory (1624 Franklin) on March 22nd. True to form, it sounds like it's going to be completely over the top. In addition to a set by the band, there'll be a fashion show, interactive art installation, and apparently you can even have your hair and/or makeup done... which might be good, since those Lindsay characters will be taking photos that you can get in arguments over the internet about later.

You can grab "Designer Drugs" from Zebra! Zebra! over at RCRD LBL (which you should check out anyway, because it's a pretty rad site).

No Gold open up the Mahjongg show on Saturday at Pat's, so get there early if you're heading down.

A-Trak is at Celebrities on April 17th with Sinden and Steve Aoki.

Speaking of Sinden, even though everyone's thrown it up already, you should really check out the video for the Kid Sis remix of "Beeper"... the vids not anything special, but the song is sick:



Shearwater opens for Clinic on May 16th.

And check out Steve's photos from Monotonix the other night at the ER. The Straight's got some words to go with the visuals.

now playing: Little Boots - Stuck on Repeat
