September 23 Richmond, VA (Probably ALLEY KATZ) with FORENSICS and PULLING TEETH.
September 24 Asbury Park, NJ ASBURY LANES with THE BLACK KITES +1
September 25 New York City SANTO'S PARTY HOUSE with CELEBRITY MURDERS (Last Show) +1
September 26 Boston, MA
September 27 Philadelphia, PA Unitarian Church with 1.6 BAND + 1
There are some limited Records in the works for these events!
RORSCHACH played one of the first ten or so shows I put on in the early 90's with Born Against in a House and have always been a favorite. One of the two bands drummers injured his hand, so in the deilirum of having driven 14 hours from Oklahoma to play in a 100 degree house show in central Alabama, the bands swapped up members and somehow ended the night doing Black Flag covers in their boxer shorts. I was lucky to book
RORSCHACH a few times at Gilman after that, always punishing. Don't miss!
For those of you who don;t know the band, Check out a Myspace tribute site here.
