Media: Wire: “Revealing Trade Secrets”

Posted by aubin (g+) on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
Image Wire have released one of the songs from their upcoming reissue of 1981's Document and Eyewitness. While the album is a set of tracks recorded on three '80s-era live dates, this track never appeared on any of Wire's studio recordings, but definitely feels like it would fit on 1979's 154.

The centerpiece of the original vinyl release was a recording of the concert at the Electric Ballroom that grew out of the band's performance art-based residency at the Jeannetta Cochrane Theatre the previous November.

Delivering a traditional rock gig -- or even fully realized songs, for that matter -- was not a priority at the Electric Ballroom, and Wire's set was composed of largely new (and often under-rehearsed) work, accompanied by a series of artistic actions and interventions. The reissue is out August 19, 2014.

Shirts for a Cure robbed at Warped Tour stop in Virgina Beach

Posted by mark on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
Shirts For A CureShirts for a Cure, the organization dedicated to raising money for cancer patients in need after the death of founder Mark Beemer's wife, was robbed at the Virginia Beach, VA stop of the Vans Warped Tour on July 23.

According to the organization's Facebook:

This is not a post we ever thought we would ever have to make, but unfortunately we were robbed yesterday at the Vans Warped Tour in Virginia Beach. Anyone with information is asked to contact the authorities. For those who don't know, our profits go directly to cancer patients in need and so having our money stolen is a huge loss for our cause. Our donations from this summer were designated to help with our ongoing financial support of the Community Health Center in Chicago and we do not want to let this organization down. We really need your help in replacing the funds that were tragically stolen.

Direct donations can be made at this location.
