FREE VINYL FRIDAY with added bonus FREE TICKETS: The Pack A.D. - The Pike Room Pontiac - Friday March 7th 2014

We must apologize for being slacker ass the past couple weeks with the vinyl giveaways..but you know how it goes with a month of holiday parties and then in addition to our grumpy uncle passing out and staying longer than expected it was the Polar Vortex that pulled up and took stock thus putting a snag in our Free Vinyl Friday listings

So we wanted to make it up to you and we have a phat stack of wax to roll out today along with free tickets to some very choice upcoming shows so lets get up get out and get on with the weekend starting with a giveaway from one of our favorites bands that keep coming back to town...

The Pack A.D.


Every time The Pack A.D. come to town 
we get excited. 

The band just released a new album called Do Not Engage 
which is a really fun record produced by Jim Diamond.

The tour kicks off tonight in Seattle working its way across the US 
with a stop at the infamous Pike Room at The Crofoot Pontiac 
on Friday March 7th 2014

email motorshittyblog @ for you chance to win a fresh off the press vinyl or a super limited spot on the bands guest list...this show will sell out and this may be your last chance to see The Pack A.D. in a room this size ever again. 

The Pack A.D., the explosive Vancouver duo featuring Becky Black (vocals/guitar) and Maya Miller (drums), release their full-length Nettwerk Records’ debut, Do Not Engage, on Jan. 28th 2014

“We never really consciously have a plan of action,” Miller wryly says of the recording process for Do Not Engage, which included a significant chunk of time spent in a former Detroit chicken-processing plant.  “If you call a plan of action ‘just get better,’ then that’s the plan we went with for this album.”

The female outfit, whose music has been described by hometown alt-weekly The Georgia Straight as “frenzied freak pop, unvarnished punk, and desert-shimmer shoegaze,” reunited with Detroit-based producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Electric Six, The Mooney Suzuki) for the 11-song release.  Diamond, a friend-turned-collaborator, also produced the band’s 2011 album, Unpersons, which earned The Pack A.D. a Juno nomination for “Breakthrough Group Of The Year.” 

Black and Miller were recently profiled on Last Call with Carson Daly, who caught up with the band when they played Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival.  Footage, which includes both an interview and performance clips, can be viewed here:
