I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious. Vince Lombardi

250,000 of your closest and dearest friends are coming to town next week. We here at Trailer Space hope your room is clean, your laundry is done and your fridge is stocked because there's not going to be time for such things. SXSW is quickly becoming a battle. A battle between the drunk and the REALLY FUCKING DRUNK. A battle between the fire marshal and fun inside a small independent record store. A battle between your desire to go see John Dwyer bobblehead around for the 10th time and your need to sleep. Beyond all that, there's so much good coming to town. We're gonna get to see the Puerto Ricans (you know who you are Davila boys) Alex and Francis White, Louie Louie (from France) we're even sorta excited to see Bim from Obnox and Chris from Unholy Two because those guys are alot like us, complete assholes, but totally a good fucking time. Here's a list of what we're having at the shop this year. You will notice that There's not a Show for the Friday Night (6ish to midnight) and Saturday Day (noon to 6ish) we are totally open to having one. THIS DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE BOOKING A SHOW YOU CAREERIST INGRATES THAT PLAY IN BANDS. In case you haven't noticed, we don't book anything here, we don't book our own shows during the times of year that aren't SXSW. If you have MONEY and need a space to put all those totally incredible bands you pal around with that sound like the Arcade Fire sucking Mudhoney's dick, please hit us up at trailerspace@hotmail.com and we can discuss, THIS DOESNT MEAN YOU CAN FACEBOOK OR EMAIL US WITH YOUR CARNIVAL ROCK BANDS EPK ALL FUCKING DAY YOU IGNORANT CLOD'S. All your doing is making sure that 4 or 5 dudes in Austin Texas are sitting around (on a crippling amount of weed) making fun of you. It might be an upgrade from the amount of people who usually make fun of you in your home town, but it's not progress. Not at all. See you next week. PLEASE DRINK WATER and BRING BEER (and maybe a bottle of Powers or 2)

'If you drink, don't park; accidents cause people' Anonymous

Drinking and driving is something you shouldn't do. Yes, we all know that it's incredibly fun, but its dangerous and potentially expensive. Evan (AKA Elliot AKA Snowflake) got really tanked at some weird show we had at the shop featuring bands that love having feelings. We didn't want him to drive, despite how fun it might be, so we took his keys and made him model some records we got in that we really like. Don't drink and drive kids. 

This Flipper live recording from Germany in 1991 is really fantastic. It sounds great and has that raw seething hatred that you truly enjoy if you love Flipper. 

One of our favorite bands from the Fifth Wave of early 2000's garage revivalists, Brimstone Howl didn't really go anywhere as a band. We like to think its because they actually know how to write songs and most people who say the term 'Garagey' alot don't really care too much about that sort of thing. This is a good record. 

California's Life Stinks borrows a little from Crime, a little from the Velvet Underground and mixes it together into a record that can only be described as 'scuzzy'. It's more appealing than it sounds. 

Cryptic Slaughter's Money Talks reissue. Thrash till death then thrash some more. It's been proven that wearing sleeveless clothing makes this record 20times better sounding. Wearing a sleeveless shirt and no pants while listening to this record is akin to what the Buddhists call 'enlightenment'. Seriously. 

Mammoth Grinder's new record is uglier, faster and tougher than their past records. Get it

These two Michael Yonkers reissues are from his 'astral folk' period. They're pretty, meandering and kinda weird (not unlike Evan here) but they kind of put the listener in a happy place and are very worth checking out. For Fans of: weed.
