On January 19th 2014, Bomb the Music Industry! will be playing our final show at Warsaw in Brooklyn. Over the past eight years this band has taken us to three continents, countless houses, basements, bars, venues, a few backyards, a lot of tasty restaurants and introduced us to most of our best friends in the world.
We'd like to have one last big "fuuuuuuck yeah!" with everybody who has made the past eight years so special for us. We're doing this on a Sunday of a four-day weekend while college is not in session, with the hopes that anyone who would like to make the trip will be able to do so. Or if you think we're like the worst, then, y'know, just stay wherever you are.
I should also mention that the show is $15. Unfortunately, in trying to find the best spot for this show - and in order to keep it all ages - we ended up with higher room expenses than our usual shows, thus making us raise the price over our standard $10. To offset this, we are offering a free live recording of the show to everyone who buys a ticket. You don't have to do anything, just buy a ticket and after the recording has been mixed, we'll e-mail you a copy. Holy fuck. Easy stuff. Thanks fr understanding.
We'll be announcing supports as the days go on, but they're gonna be super fucking awesome. Bomb will be playing two sets, and will transmogrify one last time from dry, relatively sober individuals into the sweaty, drunken, wistful messes that you hate to hug after shows.
It's kind of crazy to think of when this project first started. The major label excess, the RIAA suing students & grandparents for downloading music, releasing music for free or suggested donation being a laughable idea. It's really great to see how the landscape has changed to a much more level playing field - where everyone has the ability (and is encouraged) to share their music with the world. We've been lucky to be part of a wonderful group of bands, and watch a handful of buddies transcend what is thought to be possible by kids in basements jamming. To have a band called Bomb the Music Industry! seems anachronistic. That boring greedy shit monster has been in its death shakes for years.
To everyone who has supported us and our weirdness over the years, thank you so much.
