So, we have a flyer for that last one…

Sat. July 23rd, 2012 @ the Fallout Shelter!

Rockin’ & rollin’ underneath bowlin’!

☢☢☢

We’ll be rockin’ the shelter with three very different solo artists on Saturday June 23rd.  We’re used to being the odd men out.  This time the difference will be rather obvious.  There’s three of them… and three of us, but they’re all one at a time.

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday! (12/17/2011)

This weekend, we shall party with friends at one of our favorite hang-outs, The Fallout Shelter in Aliquippa PA.  Aliquippa isn’t too far from our home base in the ‘Burgh, so you should come out & join us.  Some are calling this a Christmas party.  Some are calling this Cliffy’s birthday party.  We’re calling it a damn good punk rock show.

The Fallout Shelter is a fun place to chill, get some cheap brews, some tasty food, hang out with friends, and make some new ones.  It’s quite cozy.

The Atomic Drops will do exactly that… sonically drop on you with the weight of an atomic bomb.  Boom!  You’ll wonder what happened.  You will have been rocked, that’s what.

Ernie and the Berts are always ready to show you that talent is not an obstacle to the meager success of a rock n’ roll band.  We’ll show you the secret if you promise to not behave.

The Scratch n’ Sniffs will come at you like a punk rock spider monkey, and make you beg for more.  With pure punk energy & style, they’ll make you tap your feet while checking to see if you still have your wallet.

Crisis in America might start a political rally, or rile us all to descend into anarchy or maybe even give us a solid plan to reform welfare.  You won’t even notice the knowledge being passed to you, as you’ll be too busy being rocked out by them.

A punk rock show to melt your face.

Insanity. Chaos. Deafening yet hooky melodies. Beer.  If these all seem like good things to you, you need to be at this show.  Add this to your Google calendar, Yahoo! Calendar, Facebook Events, or whatever you do with Google+ or AOL or MSN or Compuserve or Outlook or whatever you’re using.  Tweet about it.  Get a car full of idiots and find a non-idiot DD.

Ernie would like to remind you to drink responsibly, tip your bartender, buy some of the various bands’ merchandise, and to wash your hands before returning to work or play.

Get the flyer below tattooed on someone’s ass that you see frequently, so you don’t forget.

I’ll take Locksley for $10, Alex!

You’ve heard their songs.  You know Locksley even if you don’t know it.  They’re the next big thing, and you have the chance to see them now!  Ernie and one of the Berts saw them open for Fountains of Wayne in Philadelphia, and they dug it so much that Ernie decided to set up a show to bring these guys to the ‘Burgh!

Locksley

From Wikipedia:

Television, Press and Placements

Locksley performed “Don’t Make Me Wait”, “Let Me Know” and “She Does” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! March 2, 2007. They performed “Let Me Know” on Late Night With Conan O’Brien on August 13, 2007. MTV made Locksley their “Featured Artist of the Week” for two weeks straight on September 8–22, 2008.

After the release of Don’t Make Me Wait, Locksley were featured in multiple magazine spreads, notably SPIN Magazine’s “Breaking Out”, Rolling Stone‘s “6 Breakout Bands to Watch”, Alternative Press‘s “100 Bands You Need To Know” and in ELLE Magazine with an 8 page fashion spread in their March 2007 issue.

Many of the songs off of Don’t Make Me Wait were licensed for TV, commercials and movies, notably: “She Does” as the theme to HLN‘s Morning Express with Robin Meade, placement in the Friday the 13th remake, “Don’t Make Me Wait” as the trailer music to the Paul Rudd and Eva Longoria movie Over Her Dead Body and “My Kind of Lover” in the J.J. Abrams-produced Cloverfield.

On August 24, 2008, “All Over Again,” “Don’t Make Me Wait,” and “She Does” were made available as downloadable content for the popular Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game series Rock Band. The songs have been downloaded over 60,000 times to date. Locksley credits licenses with keeping the band going.[3]

Locksley wrote the song “Slink (A Hymn)” for use as the theme song to FOX’s TV show The Good Guys.

The ECHL hockey team the Toledo Walleye plays the chorus of “The Whip” whenever the team scores a goal at home.

Owens Community College uses “The Whip” in a number of radio and TV commercials. “The Whip” is also used in an American Family Insurance commercial, and has been used by the Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Canucks, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Dallas Stars as their goal song since 2011-12.

Hey, there are still more details!  This of from show organizer, Veronica:

The Punk Rock Sock Hop is a vintage dance party/punk show with live music and a dj playing 50’s & 60’s Rock. It started in State College July 8th & I’ve decided to have them seasonally, once in the spring / summer / fall. I have every intention of doing it in Pittsburgh seasonally and the November hop is the first one =) There is a 50’s costume contest so 50’s dress is encouraged — I can’t say it’s an authentic sock hop b/c we won’t be in a gym and we are going to keep our shoes on and the music is a little harder but the concept is there. The sock hop has some extra motives — aside from trying to show everyone a good time — I started the hop to try to raise funds for local non profits — I’m giving each band one share of the cover charge and one share to free ride pittsburgh:
