Coming up on our friends GC Records is a compilation with an… uh… acoustic version of “Leech”?!? The song’s from a KALX Live set, and the compilation is to benefit We’re pretty sure that all of the tracks are exclusive/unreleased, so don’t hesitate when it comes out in mid-2005!

Townley for City Council

Posted on by thefrisk

While writing for the new Frisk record is slow, Hunter is busy with the upcoming AFI record, Zac is busy with Shadowboxer, and Jesse is busy with running for office. There’s a darn good chance The Frisk will play at least one fundraiser for Jesse’s campaign. Shadowboxer is already planning on playing one of these shows because, well, they rock! Their new website is up in the links page, as is the official AFI page. We’re posting the Townley For Council fundraiser shows as they are confirmed on the “Calendar” page of:Jesse For Council

This rad banner was made by DIY Politics, an endorser of Jesse’s campaign (along with Punk Voter, Plea For Peace, and Bands Against Bush)
