Treat Yo Self: Creative Industry Night & Onslo Tape Release Party & Free Nachos

All of this awesomeness happens 9.29 at Charlie’s Kitchen.
Do we have a night for you?! A jam-packed event is packing into our jam, Charlie’s Kitchen, on Monday, September 29th. The first Treat Yo Self! to be held at the Harvard Square rocker bar (that serves excellent sangria), will feature live music from Sneeze, Onslo (Eye Design Records) and Zip-Tie Handcuffs. You know, that band that melted your face last week? Art from Brian Barresi Art (creator of this snazzy flyer), Kristina Denis Artwork, A RAFFLE because why not, and will celebrate the release Onslo’s S/T album, available on cassette tape at the show.
If you’re unreasonably hard to please that’s not enough, Charlie’s will be offering FREE nachos with a purchase of a beer. It sounded too good to be true, so we double checked. It’s true.
We suggest you get there early for so many reasons, a major one being the max capacity of this room is 83 people. Fact. The second is probably, definitely free nachos. Show starts at 9pm, $5, 21+. Get full details on the official Facebook event page.
RAFFLE DETAILS!
You could win:
  • Artwork
  • Merch from each band
  • 2 tickets to an upcoming show at O’Brien’s Pub
  • 2 tickets to the next Treat Yo Self!

Bundles – S/T EP

The S/T debut EP from Boston’s indie rock trio, Bundles, available now.

Maybe it’s my long-standing fondness for Jetavana Grove, but Bundles’ debut S/T EP is quickly moving up the submission food chain to becoming a top favorite for 2014.
Emerging from just below the radar at an accelerated pace, the Boston indie rock trio has played their first show, racked up appearances at several venues including The Cantab, O’Brien’s and Great Scott, and released a 4-song 7”, all within what seems to be a five month period.
But it was a strategic matter. Taking shape in the fall of 2013, Bundles quietly developed their sound before pressing a record and playing a sold out release show. After a lineup change earlier this year, bassist Brian Jones explains, “We decided it was time to record and hit the ground running. This whole thing was a long time coming. It just seems that things are starting to come together now.”
With lyrics so intensely fanatical that they’re sung at a partially inaudible level, Bundles mirrors the feverish and desperate pleas of The Lawrence Arms. Painting a picture of a habitually plagued protagonist and representing the underdog endeavor with energetic and infectious live shows. Also, this mustache.
Rightfully hitting their stride, Bundles plans to continue writing and potentially release another EP in 2015. In the meantime, you can and should see them rock out at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston on November 23rd with Astpai (Austria) and Art Thieves, and purchase their S/T 7″ (available in coke bottle clear, white and black vinyl, limited to 300) on Bandcamp today. Follow Bundles on Facebook for additional show dates and release information.

Boston Ska (dot) net Presents ‘Get It Together, a Ska and Punk Night’

A night of local ska and punk September 22nd in Allston.
Wagering they have a better alternative to your typical Monday night, Boston Ska (dot) net is presenting Get It Together!, a ska and punk night at O’Brien’s Pub (Allston) on Monday, September 22nd.

“Here at Boston Ska (dot) net, we think a lot about community: communities of musicians, communities of show-goers, the larger Boston music scene and our smaller ska scene. We set out to help build that community by promoting bands, telling stories, and keeping folks informed about shows in the area. We like to think we’re doing an okay job of that but we know we can do more.”

The line up for your better than average Monday evening includes:

The Pomps
The Srew-Ups (RI)
Meracula

And more TBA, MCed by Boston Ska’s Jacob Wake Up! (8p/21+/$5). Horns and righteousness and good vibes to be had. Details surrounding Get It Together! can be found on the official event Facebook page. Follow Boston Ska for additional shows and local ska music news.

Who Are Lesser Knowns?

Meet Lesser Knowns and download their new songs for free.

“This is the point of the show where we introduce the band.”
Nick LeBlanc, Dan Letourneau, Dan McMahon and Riley Mello are Lesser Knowns and by the sounds of it, they’re rocking out whether you know of them or not.
In true Blues Brothers fashion, you literally get a rundown of the rocking and rolling quartet with “How Y’all Doin Tonight”, one of two new tracks in the first of many EP releases this fall.
“It won’t really be a traditional record,” explains McMahon (guitar). “We wanted to mix it up a little bit and try releasing EPs in batches and in multiple formats,” with the first release available on cassette tape later this month, and digital and vinyl formats reserved for future tracks.
The comprehensive catchy, riffy, swagged up rock and roll project will be the band’s 5th “record” and will be celebrated on September 15th at Charlies Kitchen (Harvard Square) with Spectral Bat and L.A. Jeff.
“How Y’all Doin Tonight” and “She Loves to Dance” from the first installment are available for free download (at a name your price donation) on Bandcamp now. Follow Lesser Knowns on Facebook and Twitter for additional release information and show dates.
