The homies Phranchyze and Zeale will be performing following the Kid Cudi and Asher Roth show at Stubbs on July 30th.
Phranchyze will be backed by a live band called Black Rodeo who are pretty damn awesome, so it will definitely be a show you dont wanna miss.
Also on the bill is Shashamani Soundsystem who is a great reggae DJ from Oakland , he played an event for us during SXSW at the FIFTH GALLERY and was one of our favorites (you can pick up his music locally at THE FIFTH GALLERY).
Rick Osborne of Hypnotized Monkey and Marc of Mofoz Visualz and Rick Osborne will also collaborate on a live art piece at the Kid Cudi/Asher Roth afterparty, as they promote Osborne's upcoming solo show that opens Saturday at the gallery.
..this show is the place to be.
Ticket holders of the Kid Cudi Show get in for free.

The August issue of MRR features an extensive interview with the all-time classic Midwestern hardcore band the ZERO BOYS, as well as a piece on early New York City art punkers COME ON. There’s an interview with ETACARINAE, from Barcelona, Spain, who plays heavy hardcore with a Japanese influence, plus another with INSOMNIO, from Zaragoza Spain, who plays dark, melodic hardcore with a hint of Greg Sage’s WIPERS. We’ve got Bay Area hardcore covered with two East Bay favorites: the heavy hitting SKIN LIKE IRON, and the female-fronted fastcore of PUNCH. Mississippi garage misanthropes the BLACK AND WHITES are interviewed by the band LOVER! And we’ve got a feature on the mystery bedroom sounds of the BLANK DOGS, along with Portland crust heroes RESIST. There are also London, UK, and Brest, Belarus, scene reports along with the usual columns, and, as always, the most extensive review section in punk!

Although we know it’s impossible to alleviate the frustration felt by all, whether you had to wait in line for hours or were turned away after finally getting there, we know we owe you an honest explanation.
In keeping with producing the most unique events for the brand we selected the Falkenstein castle location. We thought only a limited number of people might take the long drive out there on a Wednesday night. Therefore, we heavily promoted the event to ensure we filled the venue, which unfortunately resulted in a guest list far greater than the capacity of the venue. A crowd much larger than we were prepared to handle, showed up at both the Austin bus pick up location and at the castle. Consequently, this all led to a horrible experience for hundreds of people and ruined their entire evening. And for all of this, we are truly, truly sorry.
We have spent the past two days reading each and every email, blog, and Facebook posting, and talking to some of you on the phone and we feel terrible. We are working hard to find a way to show you how sorry we are (while working within Texas alcohol beverage law which severely limits what companies can provide to consumers).
Therefore, in an effort to show how important you are to us, we are planning a special event (think of it as a Most Interesting Apology Party) for all those on the guestlist who had a bad experience and were not able to make it into the castle. Obviously planning the details and logistics of this event will take a little time, so we'll work closely with the promoters to keep you in the loop, and further details will be shared next week. If you would like to attend this event please email the promoter that invited you, and they’ll make sure you get a ticket.
If you have ever attended any of our previous events, you know we always try to give you the best experience possible, and we hope you accept our apology. If there is anything you would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
