"Sorry to everyone planning on seeing us in Pittsburgh and New York, but our van has been broken down since Friday. We are currently held up at a hotel in Fremont, IN, and our van should be fixed as early as Monday. We plan to make the show in Allston, MA on Tuesday." - Bongripper
Bongripper will be forced to celebrate the release of their new Sex Tape / Snuff Film 7" elsewhere. They were supposed to play two NYC shows before MA, but their East Coast tour has ground to a halt. The show must go on though. The Sunday night (7/10) Brooklyn show at Acheron will now feature Wizardry and Iron Thrones . No word on another band at the Monday night (7/12) Precious Metal show at Lit Lounge with Bezoar and Dutchguts.
Bongripper played the Empty Bottle in their native Chicago on July 1st with Hate, Detergen, and DJ Dave Hofer. Pictures from that show are in this post. More of them, with a stream of their new 7" and all tour dates, below..
