The show went really well -- thanks to all that came out! I personally had a lot of fun -- it was great to get to put on a show for guys I've respected/enjoyed since high school. Pictures can be found here.
Andy and Aaron, the singer and drummer from The Saddest Landscape respectively, are also in Her Breath on Glass, a band that follows in the same emo-y vein of TSL. I picked up a few of their discs at the show, including the HBOG/Khere split, and am so glad I did. According to Andy, Khere consists of half of La Quiete. Fun stuff.

It is more than likely that some combination of TSL and/or HBOG will be coming in for an in-station and playing fest. More news on that as it develops.

Anyway, on to a few D&D updates!

Planned Communities are coming in-station tomorrow, so be sure to tune in at 10pm est.

Downloads from Magic People (2-6-09) and Closet Fairies (2-20-09) are now posted on the bar to the right. The Closet Fairies recording might actually be pressed into a 7" by their label, so keep an eye out for that as well as their upcoming "full length" that they recorded the day after the performance.

Lastly, L'Antietam has been moved from March 6th to March 20th, and Waste Management has been scheduled for April 17th, filling out the calendar for the rest of the academic year. In short, that's most likely all, folks!

It's short notice, but come!!

Rivalries, on the bill, will be playing on Dischord&Dynne soon, so be sure to check them out!

Closet Fairies! TONIGHT, 10pm. They're recording tomorrow, so they should be in top form!

I effed up

Sorry about this, guys, but due to a mix-up on my part L'Antietam will actually be playing on March 6th, not Daniel Striped Tiger.
I'm stoked about the date regardless of my mistake and hope to announce a new DST date in the near future.

Also, there will be no band this Friday since I'll be heading to the Total Abuse, Failures, Daniel Striped Tiger, and Scapegoat show at Oxfam Cafe at Tufts the same night, 7pm.
All you love birds should still tune in, though-- Candace will be playing a Valentine's Day themed show while I'm at play.

Weird Fat USA.

RH just got the latest (and much delayed) Fat Day record at the station, Iguanadonaland, dropped off by former guitarist and RH dj Doug DeMay. Can't wait to see this top our charts.

Conveniently enough, today another of Doug's projects was confirmed to play on Dischord and Dynne in the near future. Exusamwa, featuring Doug (Fat Day), Angela (Weirdo Records), Nell MaLuf (Goat of Arms), and Neil Coletta (Ergot Rot). They only have a 3 inch CDr at this point, but will be recording new material in the next month and appearing on WHRB shortly thereafter-- Friday, April 3rd.

Also, following this tangent-- Weirdo Records will be opening their store on 844 Mass Ave, Cambridge, this coming Friday, February 6th. They'll be having their official opening party on February 14th with live music from Burnt Hills & Baby Jesus Burnout and djing during the rest of the night. Drop by if you're in the area!
