Rick of Obits on stage with Hot Snakes at ATP NY 2012 (more by Erik Erikson)
Though Rick Froberg has been playing his fair share with Hot Snakes as of late, he's still left plenty of room for Obits. The band recently released a fresh pair of jams on a tour-only 7" during a Spanish tour. They've also curated and posted a a YouTube playlist of "random tunes kicking around in our heads" that you can watch below. And now comes word that the band has announced a pair of shows for us NYCers, the first of which will go down on 1/18 at Rock Shop with Browns & Wrong Dots. Tickets are on sale.
The second Obits date will go down on 1/19 at Cake Shop as part of a benefit for Norton Records. Joining the band will be sets from The Psyched, Flying Teeth, and Entartete. Tickets are on sale. If you can't make it to the 1/19 show, then you can give directly to help out Norton.
Head below for the Obits video playlist, as well as a video on some of the devastation at Norton Records.

Norton Records warehouse was severely flooded by Hurricane Sandy on November 2012. They now need any kind of help to try and save as many vinyl records as possible.
