Teenacide/Shakes Records Release party !
Teenacide Records held their Record Release party for the new Shakes disc “The rise and fall of Modern Living” down in the new epicenter of Hipsterness…Echo Park…at Sea Level Records.
Since SilverLake has been “gentrified” ie: overrun by yuppies with too much cash demanding gelato and American Apparel Stores, the lower income hipsters (ie: indierockers) have had to “take it somewhere else”.
PETE-ZUH. Pete from the Shakes doles out the dough for the event’s “catering”.
An here lies the subject matter of the new Shakes release, a concept record about the neighborhood they live in, but really can’t afford anymore.Silver Lake, more specifically Sunset Junction. “The Rise and Fall…” deals with the hell that is apartment living in the heart of Sunset Junction and the “gentrification” of SilverLake. The most obvious song of the bunch, “Gentrification Blues”, an uptempo hillbilly cowpunk ditty, grabs the subject by the throat, while at the same time, merely gives up, saying “I guess I’ll have to move”.
The Blondes,back after 3 years(left). RAAAAD! Bill Rocks the Dolphin Shorts !(right)
The Blondes, who reunited after 3 years of silence for this event, started things off.
They rocked, and Bill gets extra points for bustin out the old school “dolphin shorts” , and striped sweat socks. Now THAT’S fashion.
The Shakes came out and rocked their set, and hey, they even gave away prizes !
Hey, the yuppies who took over SilverLake won’t even don’t do that. Check out their new release “The Rise and Fall of Modern Living” on Teenacide records.
Dirty Hipsters, we can’t get a seat at Eatwell because of you!
