Not to quote Anchorman, but we are feeling like we are kind of a big deal right now. With some terrific support from the people involved with the Halifax Pop Explosion, herohill and iheartmusic are putting together a two day showcase and the headline act of Day 2 is none other than The f*cking Inbreds.
Sure, we are old as dirt, so we actually remember seeing the Inbreds back in the day, but seriously. Mike and Dave were part of the scene that converted us from rap lovin white kids to rap lovin white kids that dug indie bands. We are still working on the supporting acts and finalizing the details, but we have 10 bands and I can honestly say that each one is worthy of your duckets. Some names? Well, how about Amos the Transparent, Ghost Bees, Laura Barrett, Rich Aucoin, The Golden Hands Before God, Boxer the Horse and a few special guests we are going to keep under raps.
Needless to say, even with the GZA playing the HPX (and doing Liquid Swords front to back), we are pretty damn proud of ourselves for this. We pitched the idea to Dave and thought no way in hell it would work out, but HPX came through. We are working with Zunior records on this one too, trying to hook people up with some freebies and 2 nights of chock-o-block rock.
Here are a couple treats from the band and the video that inspired our poster (huge thanks to Darren Hick for the killer artwork).
