Beach Slang
Beach Slang at Knitting Factory in 2015 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Record Store Day was yesterday. Did you pick up anything cool? If you didn’t pick up the Robotic Empire label’s tribute to Nirvana’s Bleach (one of the releases we were excited about), you can now stream it in full. It includes covers by Beach Slang, Rob Crow’s Gloomy Place, Defeater, Basement, Daughters, Thou, This Will Destroy You, Young Widows, Mean Jeans, The Saddest Landscape and more. Listen to the whole thing below.

Speaking of Beach Slang, they’re about to begin a tour with Potty Mouth and Dyke Drama (another project of Sadie Switchblade from G.L.O.S.S.). That tour kicks off in NYC on 4/20 at MHOW, also with Constant Companion opening (tickets).

Before that show, you can also catch Beach Slang singer James Alex playing a solo acoustic set for the fourth installment of the “Next Up at Samsung 837″ series at Samsung 837 (837 Washington Street in NYC). That goes from 7-8 PM. It’s free, but you do have to RSVP and entrance is on a first come, first served basis.
