Hilly Eye (Amy Klein and Catherine Tung) played a Permanent Wave presented benefit for C.L.I.T. Fest at Acheron last Friday (5/11) with Claire's Diary, Lost Weekend, and The Shivering Brigade. Pictures from that show are in this post.

As mentioned, Hilly Eye signed to Don Giovanni, and their debut 7" will be out on the label next month. Stream the a-side of that 7", "Jacob's Ladder," below. The duo will play a release show for the 7" at Cake Shop on June 9 with Shellshag, Necking, and Queening. The flier for this show is below.

Meanwhile, Amy Klein's other band, Amy Klein and the Blue Star Band, have changed their name to Leda and they've got a show TONIGHT (5/15) at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge with Cindy Lou Gooden, Young Unknowns, and Emerald Lakes. The show is a Permanent Wave benefit for Hollaback, "an international movement using mobile technology to end street harassment against women and LGBTQ folks." Doors are at 8 PM for tonight's show.

S.H.I.T. (Start Hitting Irritating Tramps) Fest is happening at the same time to counter this nonsense.

Hell yeah 3Jane

She is frequently moist and she's suddenly rank
But she cum if she pleases, she's nobody's skank
And she can't be objective, she's hornier than me
And smells like low tide at the Sargasso Sea,
But she always smells like hummus to me.

Protip for Anon 2:58 PM: Sometimes flash is needed if the venue has poor lighting.

6:04 you're not just taking shitty photos when you use flash you're also pissing off everyone around you. Also, it's not "poor" lighting per se it's just not lighting designed for you, asshole, to take a photo in it.

all this bad music is embarrasing for NJ. 1%er shit. Ashamed to
live here when these scene whores do a "benefit" that benefits no one, except their bullshit careers. LGBT deserve better than this type of TMZ slut representation.

@3:57am - that comment definitely looks like you posted it at 3:57am.

^^^ maybe, but i'm sharper at 3am than you could ever hope to be. Doesn't make you less of a hypocrite. Rich kids throwing a show to benfit their egos, and help no one but themselves by riding the gay wave. Go keep being a trendy sheep.

OBLITERATE THE PATRIARCHY. RELEASE THE BRAINWASHED FROM THEIR MENTAL PRISONS. ALL SUPPORT AND STRENGTH TO THE REVOLUTIONARY VISIONARY FEMINISTS. ANNIHILATE THE PATRIARCHY WITH KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM & LOVE. PSYCHICALLY AFFECT THE HATERS WITH TRANSITIONAL LOVE-THOUGHT UNTIL CULTURE IS HEALED. THINGS WILL NOT ALWAYS BE LIKE THIS.
