earps.jpg Since this Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, a totally cracker-ass holiday which happens to cause bands to play in excess all in the same day, I'm pimping some of this weekend's shows early. Friday night, if I'm not at the Ghostlife show, then I'll be checking out the Earps' CD release party at Last Exit undoubtedly. The new disc is called, appropriately, Here Come the Earps, and from what little I've heard of it, the band fills in the blanks between Flathead and the punk rock scene. Here's a little preview, courteous of the band:

The Earps - "Christ on a Crutch"
