Chicago...

Infest / Los Crudos 9/14/13 4pm & 8pm

Pretty cool show, excellent bands, nice venue, good turnout for both shows.


Early Show

Late Show




You couldn't leave....In Los Angeles.

Destroy LA July 2013

This show was pretty bogus. 15 band shows with no in's and out sucks. Some decent sets, some interesting cover songs, overall this was too long. Sound was pretty so so. Was half the PA off for most of the weekend?!?!?

Excellent multi cam of the entire set someone put up recently...

I'm gonna tell ya what it's all about...

CHAOS IN TEJAS MAY/JUNE 2013

(If anyone has the full video from this set upload it to youtube and let me know about it)

One of my favorite weekends of the year (minus the heat) Tons of sick bands, great people, always a fuckin party. This year was no exception, spent a few extra days in austin, swam, skated, & chilled with new and old friends. The merch lines for Infest were nuts, maybe the craziest i have seen (next to sleep at mdf). This was possibly the craziest response yet. People had been waiting all weekend and Infest were one of the last bands of the entire fest sunday night.

MDF 2013

Had a blast this weekend. Ass kicking sets from Sacred Reich, Midnight, Venom, Iron Lung, Vitamin X, Sleep, Macgrudergrind, Carcass and others. Infest set suffered a bit from the big room loud clicky kick drum sound but overall this was a great set. People going off, good mix of tunes... First show the days turn black 7" was available at.

Days Turn Black 7"

Drawblank #16

The wait is over. The leftovers of the leftovers have finally surfaced. 4 unreleased songs that sat for 18 years on the original nms tapes have now been released. A short 1 sided 7" with 3 originals (1 very short instrumental) and the long rumored Negative Approach cover that was supposed to be on the reproach comp ugly pop records put out. The first press was available at MDF & Chaos in Tejas.  If this blog has shown you anything there will be variations.



23 Test pressings w/Lazagna Leftovers Sleeve



1 On Black Eye colored vinyl



112 Purple vinyl with black streak


1250 on black vinyl with black labels



2nd Press 568 w/ Red Label on a side

Straight from the West, Oakland is the best

The oakland show was packed. Over 1000 people turned out on a warm Nor Cal Saturday evening. The band busted out nazi killer for the first time at this show and had special nazi killer shirts. Check some photos by Patrick Liston

Yes its true...

Speculated on elsewhere in the blog, there will be a limited one sided 4 song 7" available at MDF and Tejas. It will feature the "leftovers of the leftovers" from the NMS sessions (2 short songs, 1 even shorter instrumental, and the long rumored Negative Approach cover) Drawblank CEO says it will be limited to somewhere around 1000 copies and available only at these 2 shows. So you better get your ass to TEJAS and start waiting on the merch line now. Or you could always just buy the normal press when it comes out on deepsix sometime this summer.

Plates being tested...

Ride my Jet Skis, lounge under the palm trees.

There are 3 videos floating around from the Miami show. Here is the best one from the house cam/ soundboard. This show was a blast. People were going off. As always, Stage Potatoes fuck off!!


T shirts didn't show up in time for the show so they are available online for a short time. Get em here from the guy who booked the Miami show if you are quick. Speedfreak Events



Break The Che

The weather and boners doing pullups on the rafters put a little damper on the show but it was still a good time. I was expecting the same set for all these reunion shows, but it was a nice surprise to have it completely changed up. Pretty cool pic from Evan Burke

So how was Infest?

Better than you could ever have dreamed they would be. Unless you are a moron you better get a ticket to Tejas or Miami. Every other show is sold out (200 tickets will be available day of show at the metro in Oakland) The LA show was beyond packed and they had to turn hundreds of people away. There are talks of a few other shows but nothing is definite and the band is saying this wont happen forever. Don't wait for them to come to your town because that probably ain't gonna happen.

Tejas 4 day passes On sale NOW!

Tejas Infest single show tickets(earth shattering lineup!)

See how good they are for yourself here in 4 parts...
