Now, we tend not to promote out-of-town shows, because a lot of bands we feature are touring bands, and it'd get way, way out of hand to list all of them. That said, when you take a bruise like Chris from GYMSHORTS (SZ #27) did at Don Pedro last weekend entertaining our Brooklyn family, you acquire certain perks and privileges that reach beyond mere in-town show promotion. So hey, if you're in Providence tonight — hell, you probably don't need us telling you to see GYMSHORTS — but we'll do it anyway: get your ass down to their homecoming show, because you know a band's never better than when they've got homefield advantage at the end of a long string of shows w/ Whore Paint, Hard Nips, Downtown Boys at AS220 8:30pm $6 LINK
Pictures of your post-homecoming show bruises should be directed to squarezeros(at)gmail(dot)com.
