    OFF THE FUCKING HOOK! We are playing a house party this Friday at (8856 20th ave SW) in White Center with The Jerks, Krampus, Mystery Machine (all punk bands from tri cities) and the Deceptives from Olympia! Not sure yet if there is a cover or who's on when but I'm sure it will be a rager! This will be our unofficial CD release party and your next chance to get a copy of the new record (you can also download it at http://anticulture.bandcamp.com/ )

Q: Why is your guitarist so small and your bassist so big? It's awkward...
