ACHTUNG, MAGGOTS! Legendary death metal pioneers AUTOPSY will make their first ever appearance in the Pacific Northwest THIS WEEKEND at Portland, Oregon's Hawthorne Theater as part of a two day festival called Revelations of Death! This is an all-ages event and the organizer's did a commendable job keeping ticket prices affordable ($12) so don't pass out early under a bridge and miss this or you will truly never forgive yourself. I've said it before and I'll say it again: if Autopsy didn't actually invent death metal when they dropped Iommi's chocolate bong in Lombardo's peanut butter coffin, they undoubtedly dragged this bastard genre to its most gruesome heights and gory depths. Today they remain the most inventive, dedicated, honest and relevant death metal band in the so-called underground. Prepare to be bludgeoned! Did I mention that GHOUL is headlining on Friday the 13th? Some heads are gonna roll...

I'm pleased to announce that the bullshit has been sorted out and I will be playing records at East End's Annual Block Party this Saturday from 6:30pm until late and all fuckin' day on Sunday! After a swirl of rumors and false fliers it appears Repulsion will NOT be performing however, MIDNIGHT has stepped up to claim the headlining throne on Sunday July 8th along with local longhairs DANAVA!!!! There's a ton of other bands playing too but, honestly, who cares? I'll be spinning records in between the ruckus and I hope some ironic slouch with a beard, bulletbelt and/or headband tries to soundcheck his kick drum while I'm blasting Riot. Posers can and will die. AND...the Block Party is conveniently located two blocks from Rotture so afterwards we can stumble across the street and catch the deathlike cacophony of DEAD CONGREGATION who destroyed in Seattle last night! Not a bad weekend, Portland. TURN UP THE HELL!!!!
EAST END BLOCK PARTY
SATURDAY JULY 7 and SUNDAY JULY 8, 2012
Noon until Late
903 SE GRAND
