Touch and Go Records has announced the schedule for their 25th Anniversary Block Party to be held at the Hideout in Chicago, IL from September 8th through the 10th.
The bill includes The Ex, !!!, Pegboy, Man… or Astroman?, Killdozer, Three Mile Pilot, legendary hardcore act Negative Approach, Ted Leo + the Pharmacists, Didjits, Shellac, Pinback, The Black Heart Procession and many more.
The party will take place on September 8, 9 and 10. All of the profits from the ticket sales will be donated to three Chicago organizations: Tuesday's Child, Literacy Works, and the Thomas Drummond Elementary School.
Founded in 1981 in Lansing, Michigan and Maumee, Ohio, Touch and Go soon found itself at the center of the Detroit punk scene of the early 80s. Early records by classic punk bands Negative Approach, The Meatmen, and the Necros quickly put Touch and Go and the growing Detroit hardcore scene into the national spotlight.
