On December 21, a fun-loving, lambasting group of people will join in the phenomenological, eschatological spectacle that is the “end” of the Mayan Calendar at Oak Valley Lanes off Dickerson Rd in East Nashville. Chris Crofton will be the MC and tunes will be provided by Clear Plastic Masks, Majestico, Richie, as well as a few special guests, including a real life Mayan!
Tickets are $15 , all you can bowl, and you can get them at The Groove and Grimey’s. If you pre-order and bring the tickets to the party, you will be given a special end of the world hanky that will aid in either the drying of your tears or to signal your surrender to the alien overlords.
Below is also the Winter Mix compiled by your Blacktooth homies: OLMEC. It should remind you of warmer places during the frustratingly cold winter but also serve as a dutiful reminder that Winter is usually a cold, bitter time but that the spirit of Ravi Shankar rests over us.

Majestico is releasing a fairly good take of their staple songs this Saturday. Get on it, get played on, get tape on it. The neon kind. Watch out for the punks that come your way, Bay-Bay say. Is Love God? say Jose but we don’t know so now you know. I’d personally rather see my teeth in drag than drag my teeth all around this town but that’s the city for you. Good luck.

Matt Glassmeyer, townie and Meadownoise, will be releasing his record, It’s 4:00 – which we can only assume is an NPR reference, which is not cool – at the locally owned and operated record store The Groove this Saturday (8/25). It’s good. We’ve heard it. So should you. He made it in his room with all of his own stuff, no money, and lots of time (his words). You can peep it at his band camp below, as well as with the video for the song “This Machine and Me” which has railbikes in it. Matt’s a grownup badass.
Happy Black Friday!!!!!!!
BlackTooth is proud to announce that Chrome Pony’s “Illegal Smiles” and Fly Golden Eagle’s “Swagger” cassettes are available for $5 at The Groove and Grimey’s in Nashville, TN. And starting this Monday you can order them here off our Web-page! And if that isn’t exciting enough, you can also go to stores on the inter-web such as i-tunes and purchase “Swagger” for $9.99. So after you get through waiting in line at Best Buy, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and TJ Maxx, swing on over to your local record store and pick up a copy. And while you’re waiting in line think of all the fun you could have this Friday at The End watching Fly Golden Eagle play with Ranch Ghost, and Next Year’s Men (from Chapel Hill).
