I have a roughly ten minute walk to and from class twice a day. During this time I've been listening to a lot of pop punk (what's new?) and straight forward punk & hardcore. I've been having a lot of fun listening to Shorebirds a lot. Their self-titled 7"- so good.

For those unfamiliar, Shorebirds include Matt Canino from Latterman and Chris Bauermeister from Jawbreaker. After Latterman broke up, Matt moved across country from Long Island to Olympia. Not surprising coming from these bands, this shit is incredibly catchy. Oh and they're super punk cause they don't have a myspace or anything (just ask Christa or Spoonboy).

They just announced that they broke up, which sucks.
"Shorebirds broke up. It was just time for it to not be a band anymore. However, we are still releasing the LP, which is now all finished up. It will be available as soon as it is done being pressed and such."

So be sure to look for that here soon.


That's all for Shorebirds for now. Sorry this shit is bland without pictures, but I couldn't really find a good one and didn't want to post something blurry. Feel free to send me one.

Shorebirds- self-titled 7"


Unrelated, but these are some things I've been digging lately or am excited for.

They're probably my favorite Boston band right now (especially with the demise of the Conversions & Social Circkle). They've got a 12" EP coming out at the end of August and a tour to go with it.

Barn Owl
More Not Not Fun music that's just really pretty. I've had some experiences lately where drone/psych stuff has made them way more in tune/enjoyable. One was sitting in the park outside St. Patrick's in Dublin this past weekend while listening to this. Get From Our Mouths a Perpetual Light here.

Off With Their Heads
New LP out now on No Idea. I haven't heard it yet, but rad punk out Minneapolis.

The Two Funerals
I mentioned it before, but 7" (their first vinyl release!) out soon.

Loser Life
I'm excited to see this show with Meg on Sunday. Hoping to get a European tour copy of their new LP.
Plus pub crawl the night before...
me: how many pubs do you think is a good # for a pub crawl?
Megan: until we have to crawl
that number

Career Suicide
Next week at the Grosvenor (August 2).

Wish I could go to...
Boredoms 88- Foot Village are playing as part of this on August 8th at the La Brea Tar Pits.

Last Conversions show

Redwing Blackbird tour

Girly Shit
Jess has joined on too, and some fliers now on the myspace. Excited to start booking shows.

Mega ultra bummer that Shorebirds broke up. I live in Washington and I only saw them twice, but I feel lucky to have been able to see them at all. The 7" and track from the Rumbletowne compilation are soooo good. The song from the split 7" w/ Something's Wrong isn't so good. Can't wait for the LP.

Here's a photo of the 7", albeit a small one:
