On tonight's show on Indie 103.1 we were planning on playing the interview we did with Brendan from The Lawrence Arms a couple weeks ago but we are going to hold off on that until next week because we are lucky enough to have The Riverboat Gamblers drop by in the beginning of the show right before they tear the Key Club apart. You can bet the Complete Control team is high tailing it over to the Key Club right after our show to catch The Gamblers and hopefully the last of the Dead to Me set. If you live in or around L.A. and you're not there you are missing out. Come out, buy us a beer…or seven. We will also be giving away tickets tonight for the Strike Anywhere, Bane, A Global Threat, This is Hell tour which hits the Knitting Factory on October 15th. If you don't have Strike Anywhere's new record "Dead FM" get on it. Hopefully they will drop by Complete Control on their way through. We'll keep ya posted.
The show can be streamed online starting at 8pm PST (11pm EST) right here.
This Friday in Portland on 94.7 Alternative Portland we will play our interview with Chris from The Draft who stopped by the studio a couple weeks ago on their tour with The Lawrence Arms. The Complete Control crew is obsessively spinning their new record "In a Million Pieces" so do yourself a favor and go get a copy. On the show in between the awesomeness of The Draft we will play some jams by D.O.A., Black Flag, The Bouncing Souls, Dead to Me, Gogol Bordello, local boys Watch it Burn and much more. I LOVE Portland and I LOVE the local music scene there. PLEASE send us your music. Just go to the contact page on the site and send us a CD.
