We had the Villaintine’s 2016 release party at The Merrow in Hillcrest. When I asked the sound guy, Arlo, if we could play the cassette between bands he looked at me like I was crazy, but I presented him with a tape deck and he made it happen. The show featured comp contributors Joe St. Thomas, Post Attraction, Giant Surprise and Mariel. And I think Opie still holds the record on the punching bag game they have at The Merrow.
This years compilation, which was the sixth Villaintine’s, is the first cassette to come out on Villains. Which hopefully will be the first of many. It’s my favorite Villaintine’s yet. We’ve got some new friends that bring so much to the comp, and the old friends just get better every year. Get your copy now on:
