Portland's BLOWOUT joining the family. 16 July 2015

Blowout is going in the studio to record their new LP and yours truly will be releasing it when it's done!  I got turned onto this band by Milk from Walter Mitty asking me to book them a show at VLHS, and since then I've been listening to their EP non stop.  It's so good.  Blowout was written about here, by Willamette Week, going over a little bit of the band's background as well as some future plans for them and PDX DIY.

Listen to their 2014 EP here
