The Booze At Maximum Volume Underrated Records By Eric Chavez Good music not only requires amazing influences, it demands it.

Wow, this weekend is going to be a big one. Fancy pants charity functions, camp and glorious glam rock ‘n’ roll, bizarre-o comedy, a disco diva and more. Basically something for everyone. And of course we have our usual round up of on-sales. Here’s what you have to choose from:
