Show Review: The Rats Nest Run-In (American Pinup, Slaughterhouse Chorus, etc)

Last weekend I took a road trip with a couple friends to a tiny town called East Durham NY about 2 hours north of New York City close to Albany for the 5th annual Rat’s Nest Run-In car show knowing that one of my favorite bands American Pinup was playing, and thinking an old time car show would be a nice outing. As it happened it was an all-out amazingly good time that exceeded all of my expectations.

The Rats Nest Run-In which I thought was a strange name pertains to “Rat Rods” which if you don’t know (I didn’t) is an old rusted Frankenstein of a car or truck that is most often created by its owner and many times out of junk…They are amazing, the creativity of these guys who are both young and old really blew my mind, and was something to see. And next to the cars comes the party, put 2,000 or so Hot Rodder/Psychobilly types together with an amazing line up of music and cheap beer for three day’s and you are in for a good time…The Trophy’s were pinstriped bottles of Moonshine!

The Show featured about 20 or so bands who started around noon playing outdoors until about 7 or 8 pm along with a Burlesque show and pinup girl contest followed by a full fireworks show at nine. The music and more Burlesque then continued in the indoor lounge which held approximately 450-500 people and rocked until about four in the morning, so I’m told ( I didn’t make it until the end) and it featured a really great mix of old style Rockabilly by bands like Whiskey Kill as well as more modern Psychobilly by The Creepin’ Cadavers a Killer alt-country band called Slaughter House Chorus, as well as a really great punk set by Bourbon Scum, not to mention a couple of awesome sets by American Pinup which was of course my reason for driving 2 hours north to begin with. Another band who has become my new favorite band since this last weekend was New Hampshire’s Dressed For The Occasion who have a great heartfelt punk and roll kinda country sound that really doesn’t choose a genre. Remember that name…Dressed For The Occasion, If my spidey senses tell me anything it’s that they may be the next Gaslight Anthem on the horizon.

After the show I was able to get ahold of organizer Travis Myers. That’s right the same Travis Myers from Altercation Records who is responsible for Upstart Fest, The Altercation Punk Rock BBQ and The Altercation Punk Comedy Tour who simply said in his rough Bronx accent “ Hey if you like really cool cars, and you like really great music you came to the right place kid” And that pretty much sums up the weekend, hundreds of really cool and interesting cars coupled with a really great line up of bands will make for an incredible time, and I look forward to attending next year’s Rats nest Run-In which I am told will be held again at The Blackthorne Resort in the tiny town of East Durham NY around the same time next August.

Tiger Army cancels this year’s Octoberflame festival in order to focus on new album

For the first time since its inception 7 years ago, Tiger Army will not be putting on their Octoberflame festival this year.  The bright side is that it’s because they’re hard at work on their first album in 7 years!  Here’s the full update from the band:

“To everyone who’s a part of the Tiger Army… Good news and bad news – the bad news is that for the first time since it started in 2008, Tiger Army’s Octoberflame festival will NOT be happening in 2014.

The GOOD news is that Octoberflame is on hold this year so that work can progress with the fifth Tiger Army album, out in 2015!

Octoberflame has happened six times thusfar. Constantly evolving, it began in Orange County, but has included other locations over the years like Los Angeles, Pomona and as far north as San Francisco. It’s ranged from two nights to six. It’s featured special sets like the performance of the entire ‘II: Power of Moonlite’ album, or the ‘Early Years’ set with guest drummer Adam Carson.

Whether it was playing deep cuts (EVERY song recorded by Tiger Army has been performed over the various years), debuting one-off covers from influences like the Ramones, onstage musical guests, top support acts or “meet & greets”, we’ve always tried to deliver the most special shows possible in recognition of the support you all have given us.

The one thing we didn’t do was play new Tiger Army songs. To me, that’s what we really need to make the next Octoberflame special. As we did more unique things each year, it became a bigger challenge to deliver something new. More and more time was invested in preparation, time that will now be used to make a new Tiger Army record a reality!

I’m happy to report that many of these new songs have now been written. I’m so excited for you all to hear them – I waited for true inspiration to come and it did. Getting these songs to the studio and bringing them into the world is being planned now.

For the past few years, you’ve traveled to us from all over the world – when the new album arrives next year, Tiger Army will once again tour to you, like we did for so many years.

Halloween traces back to ancient autumn festivals that celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth from the earth. A time of great renewal is coming for us and it’s drawing nearer…

So THANK YOU to all who’ve stayed loyal – just like Tiger Army, Octoberflame will be back!”

The band’s latest album “Music From Regions Beyond” was released in 2007 on Hellcat Records.
