Strap in for s'more shameless self promotion. I helped organize this year's Elm City Noise Festival and it is coming up quickfast. The full details will be in these noiseletters, but for now just block out your entire calendar October 17-20 for events all over town with dozens of acts hailing from something like 6 or 7 states playing those weirdo jamz you know you love. Plus other special things! Stuff you'll only know about if you show up! Unofficial ancillary shows! Motherfucking T-SHIRTS, BRO! Eats! Music! Smokes! Boxing Contest! Short, Snappy Talks!
Upcoming show tips, reviews or pics from last week's shows, questions, comments, and concerns go to email@example.com

We love you! Get to the gig!
