Katy Otto posted some Exotic Fever news a few days ago on VLV:
"In December, Exotic Fever will release a split lp of two DC-area bands that inspire and captivate me – Turboslut www.turboslut.org and Pygmylush. It is one of the most exciting projects I have ever worked on and means a lot to me. These bands play together often. Turboslut will be touring in October. Stay tuned!"
Turboslut are a band from DC who played their first show last October. They've played with a lot of really rad bands (RH Fest favorite ¡Apeshit!, Des Ark, Pink Razors, the aforementioned Pygmy Lush, New Bloods, TTF, etc.) and have a demo out. You can get the songs on their website (or I have it nicely zipped below) and can order it from them by emailing email@example.com.
A description from their website:
"from the ashes of chugga chugga, haymarket, worm talk, conglomo, monsters, flat tummy, and roblatz…dc grunge punker chix destroy you"
They've been playing a ton of shows in the DC area, and I'm hoping they'll come up to the Boston area when they tour in October. They also have a lot of DC area shows soon so check 'em out (I haven't actually seen 'em yet). I think one of them lives at the Girl Cave.

On a semi-related note to the touring, the whole booking deal is proceeding... We now have an email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a myspace (cause we're really legit). That's not really up & running, but friend us anyway. I would have made a snazzy picture or something, but my photoshop doesn't work off campus nor do I have a scanner.
