Good News Time: Something Fierce Gets Signed! [3/25/2009 06:39:00 PM]:
It's been a rough week for the out-of-towners -- Kevin Seconds
& Kepi Ghoulie were no-shows at their scheduled date
, The Queers didn't end up getting paid for their recent show
, and San Antonioans (and SCR
faves) Girl In A Coma got in a fight with the H-town police and ended up in jail
on Sunday. Dang.
But hey, on the local front, this week brought some very cool news: Houston-based punk-with-melody-and-heart heroes Something Fierce send word a day or two ago that they've signed to indie-cool Portland label Dirtnap Recs. The label'll be releasing the vinyl version of the band's excellent, excellent latest release, There Are No Answers, and beyond that there's plans to put out a brand-new full-length sometime next year.
So big, big congrats to the SFers; this is awesome news. They deserve as much outside-of-Houston exposure as they can get, and a label heavy on indie cred like Dirtnap is a good way to go.
