SXSW Day Parties

5371

And without further ado, and practically zero fanfare, here are the (mostly free!) SXSW parties with SUB POP bands! I was thinking about writing the addresses and all that jazz, but I thought that since these were free shows it’d be okay for you to do a small amount of work and figure out the location on your own. Plus, teach a man a fish and all that, you know? Anyway, enough with my constant ramblings…. HERE IS THE INFO YOU NEED!

AWAY

Please welcome Billie Atkins!

5357

Our very own online publicist, friend, and vending mogul Alissa Gallivan has, for over nine months now, been “the pregnant lady” here at Sub Pop, but we are excited to announce that we can now just call her mom. Alissa and her husband John Atkins are the proud parents of what may be the best baby girl in all the land. Congratulations to the cutest little family we know!

Obits Debut & Red Red Meat Reissue on March 24th

5388

We’re gonna try something crazy here (but it’s not the first time, so we know it’ll work out in our favor). We’re going to put out two records in one day! First, we have I Blame You, the debut from Obits (CD/LP). Pre-ordering this will get you a very amazing, band-designed lenticular post-card and stickers and button. Also on March 24th, Bunny Gets Paid, Red Red Meat’s third album is getting the deluxe, double-disc reissue treatment. The only other Sub Pop release to get this honor so far has been Mudhoney’s Superfuzz Bigmuff, so Bunny Gets Paid is among good company.

Obits’ I Blame You here.

Red Red Meat’s Bunny Gets Paid here.

A Form of Paying Attention March 2009

5351

Alright, guys, fuck yeah! Two thousand nine is really picking up speed here at HQ and we’ve got some (dare I say) great stuff for you in the lovely month of March. On March 10 we will release the new HANDSOME FURS record on CD & LP. If you order FACE CONTROL before 3/10 we will include a CDR with 4 live album tracks recorded in Seattle. Buttons, stickers, blah blah blah, yes, you get that, too! Also, we’re doing a thing now that lets you stream the whole album once you purchase from subpop.com. That’s cool, right? March 10 is also the release date for the MARK SULTAN (the BBQ half of the King Khan & BBQ show) seven inch “Hold On” b/w “I Hear a New World”. The songs are great and so is the art/packaging. Get with it.

The OBITS record I BLAME YOU comes out on March 24th and I couldn’t be more excited—this is my record of the year. (No other records need apply.) We’ll give you a lenticular (Google it) postcard designed by the band if you pre-order, plus butts and sticks, AND the ability to stream! All this and nothing more if you order before March 23! That same day is the day we release BUNNY GETS PAID by RED RED MEAT in deluxe form including a 7-song 2nd disc of alternate, demo and single versions of album tracks, plus b-sides, covers and a previously unreleased song from the same era (“St. Anthony’s Jawbone”), all put together by the band. GET IT!

March is also the month of SXSW in Austin, TX. As has become our custom, we will be having a little Sub Pop showcase on two stages on Thursday, March 19 at the Radio Room. Here’s the sitch:
8:00 No Age (outside)
9:00 Red Red Meat (outside)
9:30 Mark Sultan (inside)
10:00 Obits (outside)
10:30 Daniel Martin Moore (inside)
11:00 Vetiver (outside)
11:30 Tiny Vipers (inside)
12:00 Blitzen Trapper (outside)
12:30 Pretty & Nice (inside)
1:00 Handsome Furs (outside)

Bonus CD with Handsome Furs Pre-Order

5345

Tuesday, March 10th marks our second release of 2009. This brings you, esteemed email subscriber person, yet another opportunity to own bonus material through an altogether unsubtle sales trick we call “the pre-order incentive”. When (and less likely if) you pre-order Handsome Furs’ second album, FACE CONTROL, on CD or LP (as usual, the vinyl comes with a digital download code), you will receive a limited CDR featuring four album tracks performed live at an April, 2008 show in Seattle. And because we’re so sweet on you (and your money), we’re going to throw in a couple stickers and a button as well. Can’t wait until March 10thto hear FACE CONTROL? With your pre-order, you’ll have access to a full album stream! How’s that for a bullet-proof sales pitch?

Pre-order FACE CONTROL here.

Check out the Handsome Furs here.
