Into the Pit: A389 Records 8th Anniversary Bash

In a couple days time, if you’re looking for something to do in Baltimore that doesn’t involve dodging bullets or dealing with shitty temperature fluctuations, why not mosey your bulbous buttocks down to the Sonar Compound to help celebrate A389 Records’ eighth birthday? The label is one of our favourites around these parts and now that CEO (Chief Everything Officer) Dom Romeo is putting his band Pulling Teeth to rest, we’re guessing he’s going to be redirecting that energy towards more awesome releases and packaging schemes like flexi discs, gatefold sleeves and hologram covers. Specific details and all sorts of info of Saturday’s event are below (I snagged it all from the horse's mouth that is the A389 website). Tickets are still available.
