Lit Lounge has a capacity of 175. We need to fund getting all 4 bands and a couple artists to NYC. Solution? Make a couple hundred hand-linocut printed sleeves for a hyper limited-edition Melvins/Seawhores 12". Then make the record the ticket to the live show (all funds go to the bands). You get a super-rare 12" with a hand-signed art print cover AND you get to see an amazing lineup in an intimate setting.

HOW TO SEE THE SHOW FOR FREE: As part of the art exhibition, the live show will be simultaneously broadcast/projected into the TT Underground gallery. The exhibit portion is FREE. There will be Melvins, Hammerhead, Seawhores, Gay Witch related art and one-of-a-kind art records releases available as well.

Art by HAZE XXL / Math.i / Grant Hart / Junko Mizuno and more!!
TT Underground • 7pm • JUNE 30th/Saturday - FREE

FAQ & More Info:
• About 70 of these 12"s will go for sale online in the weeks following this event.
• You can buy more than one ticket/record on Thurs. at Lit Lounge - just provide a name that will match a valid ID to gain entrance on Sat.
• The Melvins will likely play in the middle of this bill to ensure their performance lines up with the simultaneous gallery show.
• If your question has the information already provided above HAZE XXL has been granted permission to throat punch you.
• Questions regarding what the record is (songs/art/etc.) are likely answered by scrolling through the entire photo album here.
