FOREVER YOUNG: EPIC NIGHT OF MUSIC IN NASHVILLE March 10 2013, 5 Comments

Last night the Exit/In saw a show of force, faith and family as Infinity Cat took it's turn in the great line up of shows that has been 2013's Freakin' Weekend. An amazing night of music and love amongst friends. Our thanks to everyone who made it possible, the bands, the fans, and the bouncers, who let the rules fly and allowed for the crazy scene you see pictured as JEFF The Brotherhood closed the show. The stage and the audience became one and no one will forget it. Diarrhea Planet previewed their monster of a new album, and Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders charged through their best set of rawk ever. We'll never get over this one folks. Thanks to all who came out and made it such a special night.


FREAKIN' WEEKEND IS HERE. ALMOST! March 05 2013, 2 Comments

We can't wait for Thursday: QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT, NATURAL CHILD, PUJOL, RANCH GHOST, and SLAMMERS at The End. We can't wait for Friday: THE BLACK LIPS, WHITE FENCE, EX-CULT, D. WATUSI, and CRIME WAVE at The Exit In. And we can't wait for Saturday: JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD, DIARRHEA PLANET, CY BARKLEY & THE WAY OUTSIDERS, OGG and THE ORWELLS at Exit/In. Plus all the great music and goodies at the Pop Up Shop at Local Honey.For all the details, go to Nashville's Dead and let your freak flag fly.


OUR BEST T-SHIRT EVER. BUT IT'S ABOUT TO DISAPPEAR! February 03 2013, 1 Comment

SOLD OUT Everyone who see it says the same thing. Coolest Infinity Cat shirt ever! Hand drawn and hand-made by Jessica McFarland of Heavy Cream, we love love love this shirt. We had about 50 emails asking if they can buy the shirt separately, so here's the answer: nope! We really want this to be about Valentines Day, so we are only offering it as part of the 2013 Mix Tape package. Limited to 100, the Mix Tape rocks, and there is a hand made (by Sierra) CD as well. Every single one of them has a different cover! Add a Valentines Day card and some Sweet Tarts and you got Valentines Day in a box. A box that ships Priority Mail on 2/5. Orders end 2/4. We have a few left so we'll take orders until we run out or it gets too close to Valentines Day to get it there on time. Trust us, you will heart this!


ORDER BY FEB 4: VALENTINE'S MIX 2013 (LTD. TO 100) January 24 2013, 5 Comments

 

SOLD OUT We love love. We're all about it. And so is Valentine's Day. That's right, it's right around the corner and we have a sweeeet gift for you and your Valentine. THIS IS LIMITED TO 100 SETS. That's right: 100 cassettes, 100 t-shirts, and 100 CD's. Jessica has come up with the perfect t-shirt design, and Ale picked the love songs.

The cassettes are being manufactured, we're making the CD's by hand (of course), and we'll make the shirts on February 4th here at Infinity Cat. So we need all orders (and t-shirt sizes) by February 4th. Then we're gonna put the packages together and ship them Priority Mail so you get them in time for Valentines Day! Just $39!! (A bit more for international, cuz shipping is way more). We are excited for February 14th when we'll be wearing our matching shirts, trading Valentines, and eating a heart-shaped cake. Infinity Cat: Bringing people together since 2002!

 


CY BARKLEY IS BIG IN JAPAN September 20 2012, 0 Comments

No kidding. #1 in foreign orders usually goes to the UK, Australia/NZ, France, even Norway (and of course Canada, America's attic*). But not when it comes to Cy. We sell more Cy Barkley in Japan than all other foreign countries combined! Why? I don't know, maybe they like real punk rock! And here's today's review: "‘So Bad’ is like a blueprint for 21st Century rock ‘n’ roll.  It’s pure punk trash from start to stop.  When I say ‘trash’, that’s a good adjective in my view of rock ‘n’ roll.  You know, like how ‘bad’ means ‘good’.  I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Cy and Co. (fellow OutsidersJosh Shearon and Cam Sarret) named the album ‘So Bad’ because it is sooooo bad!  Head bobbing sing-alongs give way to SST inspired mayhem, just to slide back into a fuzz induced melodic arena.  The LP spins at 45rpm, which is another bonus.  This is a full-length, but the dudes aren’t wasting anyone’s time.  Wanna rock?  OK, play this record and in less than half an hour you can do something else.  Like play it again.  Cy Barkley And The Way Outsiders are carrying the dirty rock ‘n’ roll torch along with the likes of Ty Segall and their label bosses, Jeff The Brotherhood.  It’s a diverse landscape out there for garage and punk inspired tunes and Cy and Co. are blazing a trail that people need to follow" - Tight Globes So c'mon rest of the world- figure out what Japan already knows. Buy it HERE

*by America's attic, I mean sometimes we forget you're even up there. But every time we remember to go up and visit, we find tons of really cool stuff! And people, too. (photo of Cy by Cy Barkley. Last night, in fact). We love Instagram.


IT'S A WET ILLUSTRATED, BIG SURR, CY BARKLEY SUMMER August 08 2012, 3 Comments

It's hot, it's long, it's American: It's a Wet Illustrated, Big Surr, Cy Barkley summer. We'll take your word for it. It must be, the way this vinyl is flying out the door. And the critics agree:
"Wet Illustrated also take a ton of cues from the artier, further-out edges of late-’70s British postpunk. There’s a playful edge to this band; their riffs are jaunty, and their vocals edge toward the yippy more often than not; they’ve clearly spent some time watching and learning from Robyn Hitchcock. A jumpy, jittery, and overall fun ride — like the Fresh And Onlys, if someone put Pixie Stix in their acid" (STEREOGUM) Get the "Skorpio Wings" 7" right HERE.
"Big Surr: It seems like when it's summer you can't get enough of these steamy, layered laid back tracks for the slow drive around, windows down, everything in slow motion and if it's winter you want to just be reminded of those times when things weren't so freezing cold...this one wins either way pretty much. "Cosine, Tangent" has those heavy delayed vocals echo-ing forever inside a giant smooth cavern. Massive chords played in slow motion, harmonies elevating the whole thing into the heavens, feedbacking waves fading in and out. Like a dirty, distortion hazed Real Estate, the melodies creep up on you and just get better and better. Extended, the song thankfully takes forever and they break the zone out with a serious insane solo to snap you out of the lull for a minute and separate them from the typical shoegaze track." (7 INCHES) Get the "Baked and Bruised" 7" right HERE
"Since the unfortunate passing of Jay Reatard, there has been a void in the hearts of scumfucks everywhere. Enter Cy Barkley, a man straddling the line between garage and punk with a black Gibson in hand. Rock Together showcases a more accessible side of Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders’ dirty punk music that could put a wistful tear in Keith Morris’ eye. “When you say you don’t know, please tell me, I’ll follow you,”  Barkley shouts over glammy riffs, pounding bass and unrelenting drums in “Rock Together”, the EP’s Single." (GET BENT) And now here's Cy's killer new full-length, "So Bad". It's so good. Get it right HERE.

Y'all are awesome! I can't believe I won, I never win anything!"  Congrats Brad.


CASSETTES FIT IN STOCKINGS. WHAT'S ON YOUR LIST? December 16 2011, 2 Comments

It's a well known fact: Christmas stockings were invented to hold cassettes. True. There was no such thing as a "Christmas Stocking" until The Mercury Record Company introduced pre-recorded music cassettes to the U.S. in July 1966. The initial offering consisted of 49 titles. And everybody one for Christmas. So a tradition was born! Hang a stocking from the hearth, and the next morning...well, you know the rest. So we're just reminding you that you can make someone's dreams come true with Peach Kelli Pop, Natural Child, Heavy Cream, Diarrhea Planet, and we even found a few Paperhead cassettes as well.

What else is on your list? How about "We Are The Champions" on LP or CD ? Or how about:
PUJOL's "X-File On Main St." on CD
Uncle Bad Touch LP
Heavy Cream on LP or CD
Diarrhea Planet on LP
Peach Kelli Pop on LP
Natural Child's "1971" on LP or "Bodyswitchers" on CD
Hell Beach on LP
JtB's classic "Heavy Days" LP or CD
Finally, check out our fine selection of 7" singles, like this one from Cy Barkley and the Way Outsiders
