New Shit: B-Side & Victim Party

Hi Everyone! Its been quite some time since I've updated this blog, literally since the last performance of our favorite band.

Right now you can get Hostage Life's B-Side cover of Tapper Zukie's MPLA over at Juicebox for free.

Also this past Wednesday at NXNE 2010 Ho-life members Colin Lichti and Patrick Mathers with many others performed as newly formed super-group The Victim Party at the Bovine Sex Club.
Unfortunately I did not know about this gig and missed so if anyone's got pics from the show please send them my way to hostagelifeblog@gmaildotcom

Okay folks I don't have to tell you whats going on. Its the final show tonight, be there or else you will regret it forever, so do what you have to do to get to Sneaky's tonight; steal a car, quit your job, rob a TD bank, whatever. Colin will be jumping back onto the saddle tonight for his only show on this farewell tour.

A few Notes:
1) People have been asking is the show all-ages. To be honest I'm not entirely sure. I've been assuming the whole time its +19 because all the times I've been there I had to show my ID, however everywhere I see the show listed it does not mention +19 or all ages. So to all you kids out there go at your own discretion, learn to communicate(other than facebook) by using the phone to call ahead to the venue(its not hard, just google or facebook "Sneaky Dee's" for the number, I'm not your mother find it on your own) or be ready to bring your fake ID. CONFIRMED The show tonight IS +19

2) Also get there early, not just for the openers but its going to be packed, if not at the beginning of the show definitely by the end when Ho-Life gets on stage. Keep in mind, LAST SHOW EVER. Capacity at Sneaky Dee's is 250, the facebook event page have already have that many confirmed so at least half that is showing up.
