Check out the Texas harlot representing the 2011 Fat Wreck Chords South By Southwest showcase! These limited edition silk screened posters were designed by Fat’s very own David Pauli and will be available for sale while supplies last with proceeds going to charity. The event kicks off on Friday, March 18th at the Scoot Inn at 8PM featuring Screeching Weasel, Dead To Me, The Flatliners, Banner Pilot, and special guest opener The Biters. After Screeching Weasel wraps things up at midnight, we’ll be turning the volume down and the bottoms up with acoustic performances from Joey Cape of Lagwagon and Dave Hause of The Loved Ones. They’ll be keeping things loose and casual. And rumor has it they’ll be doing a little collaboration, possibly involving special guests joining them on stage. It’s a show you can’t afford to miss!
There’s been one constant in NOFX’s twenty-eight year career, it’s been their quest to innovate, whether that means writing the world’s most epic punk song (“The Decline”), playing shows in some of the most dangerous locales in the world (as evidenced in their Fuse TV series Backstage Passport) or tackling subject matter that will make you laugh, cry and critically think—often within the confines of the same song. NOFX are very excited to announce their first cross Canada tour since 1994. The tour kicks off in St. Johns, Newfoundland bringing the band the farther east in North America than they’ve ever been. The Great White NO[FX]rth Tour will also feature two Fat Wreck Chords favorites: Teenage Bottlerocket and Old Man Markley.
