TONIGHT: CRIMINAL HYGIENE HIJACK RECORD CLUB!!! Ahhh!
Echo Park arsonists/pizza delivery guys/punks Criminal Hygiene are releasing their brand new 7-inch "Turpentine" on L.A. label New Professor, and they're hosting our weekly record club to celebrate. The band toured relentlessly in 2014 crisscrossing the U.S., doing a run with Twin Peaks and the Meatbodies, and playing New Year's Eve in Chicago with The Orwells. "Turpentine" is a bittersweet melodic punk gem that captures everything this trio of big-hearted troublemakers does best, backed with an unhinged cover of Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge." Bring a record to El Prado across the street from OV and the Criminal Hygiene boys will spin some of their favorites and some of yours. Of course we'll have a tall stack of Criminal Hygiene records for sale as well.
We'll see ya tonight! And in the meantime, be sure to check out the infectious "Turpentine" below!
