Gross Domestic Product is this Saturday, May 28. It takes place in the East Village, is a showcase of homegrown talent and I love it more than I love beer and tacos and at least one of my pets.
Tickets are available for the low price of $15 until day of and everyone should buy them.
Now the kick-ass writers over at DSMShows (if you read me and not also them, you’re outside your damned mind) have a write up of each band that goes a little more in depth. I, however, have been too busy writing about my shitty brain to do the same. Plus, I have this channel on my Roku that just shows dirt indie wrestling from public access around the world and it’s really taking up a chunk of my time.
Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to sell you on each band in ten words because I want you to go and I want you to listen to them, but I also want to watch this Fred Yehi vs Colby Corino match that looks like it was filmed in someone’s filthy basement in front of 12 people. Priorities.
Lineup (all bands can be heard right here.):
Wooly’s (All Ages)
5:00pm – Foxholes – They’re like super good at music. They’d better play “Drive”.
5:45 – Courtney Krause – Really smart and pretty storytelling. She also seems really nice.
6:30pm – Fetal Pig – Released one of my favorite albums ever. Listening right now.
7:15pm – Agrinex – God dammit, my hearing. Fuck it, who needs to hear?
8:00pm – Tires – My favorite band in the world. Not even kinda joking.
8:45pm – Media Fresh – I bought their album at their last GDP. Yes, bought.
10:00pm – Green Death – Megadeth approved, so I approve. I saw Megadeth at Supertoad.
The Blazing Saddle (All-Ages until 9pm/21+ after 9pm)
6:45pm – Glitter Density – Usually angry at talented youngsters but I don’t hate this.
7:30pm – The Vahnevants – Like if you hit The Beatles with a steel chair.
8:15pm – Bob Bucko Jr – There’s so much happening here underneath the seemingly simple production.
9:00pm – Nostromo – If you need this recommendation, you haven’t listened. Listen. Now.
9:45pm – Odd Pets – They’re my new obsession band. Garage music is the best music.
10:30pm – VaJ of Courage – I think my friend Rachel is in this. She’s neat.
11:15pm – Alex Body – Like a level of Mega Man 3, but with lyrics.
So there you have it. 140 words should be enough to convince you, but if you need more, click the links and listen and make up your own mind. You’re all smart and you should be smart and go to this.
