MP3:The Corn Puppies “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit 2”
Early this week we posted Racist Joe’s lost hit “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” in lieu of a 7 inch of the song that will be handed out at the Daymon Day Parade tonight.
Well, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” has already spawn a cover version.
The Corn Puppies are a new group consisting of Ben Branstetter, John Hughes, Rustin and Jake Winston. They haven’t played a show yet, but Daymon was always nice to dudes when they were young so they felt compelled to do this cover. It’s really good. And it’s funny to hear the lyrics sung in Rock N Roll form.
Music Week Columbus is being hosted for three nights at three Old North bars, Ravari Room, Kobo and Rumba Cafe. Wednesday I hopped between Rumba and Kobo to check out Dave Buker & the Historians, Narrow & the Brights, Milano (Chicago), Ghost Shirt and Wet Darlings.
Music Week columbus concludes tonight.

So after the jump, Mike O of Nick Tolford & Co, Johnny Cashola, Envelope and Freaky Franz all speak on their experiences with Daymon Dodson, and the Daymon Day Parade.

Clay: Guess the decade by the facial hair
Tomorrow marks the last of the late-summer music festivals, Independents’ Day, and it ain’t a bad way to end the season. You can check out the full lineup below. Everyone probably has a different must-see act, but as reunions go, Clay is the big name. I spoke to Jerry Dannemiller, who was responsible for booking Clay and about one-third of the ID lineup, and he had this to say about the band to put them in context:
“Clay held a special place in a certain period of time. A lot of people revered Clay. They were like a Midwestern Buzzcocks with a weird propensity for performance art. They were hilarious, extremely witty and really fun. They were one of the bands you didn’t want to miss when they played a show.”
Clay featured Guinea Worms’ Will Foster and put out a couple singles on Anyway Records. You can check out a whole bunch of the bands’ “shouttakes” as mp3s here, and Cringe also has a feature on the band along with mp3s of Clay’s unreleased album, Stories Of Kirk And His Fiat (And A Buffalo Grass Woman, Hester).
Here’s the lineup and schedule for all four stages tomorrow:
All Tomorrow’s Parties is returning to the US this month for the first Edition of ATP’s sister event I’ll Be Your Mirror that has been currently held in Japan and the UK. The US edition of I’ll Be Your Mirror will be held in Asbury, New Jersey from September 30th to October 2nd. Saturday and Sunday of I’ll Be Your Mirror will be curated and headlined by Portishead who will be playing their first shows on the East Coast since 1998. Jeff Magnum will be playing two shows Friday and Saturday at the Festival.
Download or Stream this Portishead curated Mixtape which features a good bulk of the artists Portishead chose for I’ll Be Your Mirror. The Mixtape has everyone from Shellac to Company Flow to the Ultramagnetic MC’s.

MP3: Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!
At the 6th Annual Daymon Day Parade on September 17th, we will be handing out 7 inches of Racist Joe’s cult hit song Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit produced by DJ Bombay.
Song is hilarious as Daymon raps about mythical sexual exploits that resonate all the way out to Polaris over the theme music to Soap.
And during times like these, who can’t relate to the phrase, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!”?
Thanks to Michael Carney for designing the label and cover. Also special thanks to Mus-i-col for the quick turn-around on pressing, and Carabar for being supportive of this record from day 1.
After the jump watch people sing “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” on the corner of 5th and High at the end of the 2009 Daymon Day Parade. Continue reading

MP3: Bill Fox – Appalachian Death Sigh
As we’ve mentioned previously, Bob Miller’s PBR-sponsored Megacity festival debuts this Saturday (9/10) at Woodlands Tavern, and it’s a reunion-heavy lineup: 84 Nash, The Cusacks, The Bygones, Bigfoot, plus the original lineup of Tree of Snakes and Chris McCoy‘s first Columbus show in a year. Bill Fox is coming down from Cleveland, Wussy and the Seedy Seeds are coming up from Cincinnati, Kevin Failure of Pink Reason is coming from his overseas tour (where apparently he broke some ribs).Plus plenty of other great Columbus bands, many of whom have something special planned for Saturday.
Also, I wrote a story for this week’s Other Paper about Megacity and the other two music fests coming up in the next two weeks, Music Week Columbus and Independents’ Day.
Here’s the full lineup and set times for Megacity’s three stages (two indoor, one outdoor):

8 Fest was held this past May in Athens, OH outside of Ohio Universities main campus. The Princeton Review has recently ranked Ohio University as the United States #1 Party School…. We’d like to think 8 Fest is the reason. Cleveland, OH’s own, Machine Gun Kelly, headlined the event along w/ the likes of DJ E-V, Cornelius Jackson, Fly Union, iPhonic, Swagg, DJ Edski, Ray Jr. and many more, the crowd of 14,000 + students witnessed the best music festival Ohio has to offer. The party continues… 9 Fest Is Coming.
