As you’ve probably heard, Brooklyn-based DIY recording venue/show space Shea Stadium has fallen on hard times, having recently been forced shut down a month ago after a series of violations issued by the city.
Shea Stadium founder Adam Reich and his team are working diligently to get the space back up and running — totally legally this time — to resume their eight year run of offering the scene a space where bands could put on, and record, and get paid for, their live performances. As such, they launched a Kickstarter campaign geared at raising the funds necessary to help Shea Stadium complete renovations, combat legal fees, and come into compliance with myriad codes and regulations. Featured amongst the Kickstarter options is a compilation curated by Exploding In Sound Records that consists of performances from two dozen different bands recorded live at Shea over the last eight years. Included are bands like Big Ups, LVL UP, Ovlov, Washer, Palehound, Krill and a bunch more. Get the full details at the Kickstarter page here and help get Shea back up and running.

Checking my email is one of my least favorite parts of my daily routine. Half of my inbox is spam and the other half is spam about boner pills. Sifting through the Dying Scene inbox, on the other hand, is awesome. Sure, we get a lot of junk sent our way, but there always seems to be a diamond in the rough. Cook Bag is one of those diamonds. They sent us a link to their new single "June 4th", and a few seconds into my first listen I knew this melodic punk band from Boston was something special. There's something so familiar about their sound, but I can't put my finger on it. I highly recommend checking out the track on bandcamp (it's free to download as well).
