New contest! Win a Penetrators' S3 ladies t-shirt

T-Shirt

Hey it's about time we have another contest isn't it?

Here we have an official bit of Penetrator's loot, an S3 t-shirt, in the XL babydoll size & style. This shirt has shrank a little bit, and is probably equivalent to a ladies small size. It has never been worn and is in like new condition. Did I mention it is small? And cut for the ladies? Good luck!

Click here to enter! Open to SG101 members only.

Hey band members! If you have something you'd like to give away as an SG101 contest, please contact Brian. Thanks!


New Crazy Aces Single To Benefit Second Harvest Food Bank!

Flyer

Crazy Aces are pre-releasing their single "Temple Of Cool" with all proceeds to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank here in Nashville, Tennessee in an effort to help others this holiday season. This offer will be available until January 1st 2014 and we will post pictures or video of the food purchased with your donations before we deliver them after the new year. It's our wish that the money from this pre-release be used to purchase as much food as possible, rather than going towards any administrative costs for the charity. 

Please note that Crazy Aces will not be taking ANY of the money for our own administrative or recording costs other than postage of physical CD's, if that is your request. We encourage you to choose email delivery of an mp3 file so that as much of your donation as possible goes to the charity. Please specify in your note if you would like a physical burned CD copy (Continental US only) or mp3 via email. We're keeping this grass roots so please don't expect any fancy artwork on CD's.

Minimum donation is $5.00 and can be paid here. Or email us at crazyaces@comcast.net to arrange other payment methods, cash or check.

Thanks for your help and Happy Holidays!

I also have a black Gospel with white pickup covers, (stunning) and finally a Hallmark II in 3 tone sunburst. If you have any interest these beauties, contact me.

Sundazed Records re-releases The Surfaris Wipe Out and Surfer Joe on 7" red vinyl

The Surfaris’ seminal 1963 smash “Wipe Out” is the ultimate testament to rock ’n roll creativity—an infectious, unstoppable groove that was conceived and recorded in 10 minutes! A new 1963-styled picture sleeve includes liner notes showcasing a recent interview with original rhythm guitarist Bob Berryhill. Both “Wipe Out” and the flip-side anthem “Surfer Joe” are in their original long versions, reproduced on the original Dot label and pressed in red vinyl!
