BELLS (mems Jawbox/Oxford Collapse) will play Bruar Falls on July 30th as part of a "rock and roil CRAB BOIL" at the venue. The show, headlined by Mcdonalds (who you can read more about here), will also feature a solo appearance from Bells member/cellist Gordon Withers. Gordon, who you may know for his cello Jawbox covers, now also plays with with J. Robbins in Office of Future Plans and with Zac Barocas in BELLS. Moonmen On The Moon, Man are also on the Bruar Falls bill which features a meal as described in the name of the show.

Speaking of Jawbox, Dischord remastered and reissued two singles at the end of May. Speaking of Dischord, Title Tracks are on tour and in NYC this weekend.

Office of Future Plans has three shows coming up, but still none in NY. They're listed below.

BELLS released their debut There Are Crashes EP last year, and are currently writing new material. Stream that EP and the Gordon Withers Jawbox covers LP below.

Jesus this is worse than Greg Dulli doing Twilight Singers instead of Afghan Whigs.

Enough instrumental boring crap, go Jawbox or go home.

I guess this is how nerdy indie rockers give girls crabs?

If you don't like Bells, I don't want to know you.

Jawbox doesn't exist anymore - so you're saying that ex-members of bands you like can't play in any other bands besides the one that you approve of. Or that they can't play music that sounds different?

Plus, I don't think Twilight Singers are instrumental, dude. And "instrumental boring crap" is a pretty broad term.

hey 12:55, sorry to have hurt your feelings. You will have lots to talk about at Bells practice tonight.

Looks good besides the crab thing. That's gross. I also like that some asshole has no life and responds to defend his troll post. The bands must be good if they inspire DEBATE.
