Hideout Gets New Coat of Shellac

2007_09_shellac.jpgShellac, that merry trio of fun-loving noisemakers, is taking over Hideout in mid-December. We love Hideout, and we love the fact that Shellac always tries to play somewhere interesting on those rare occasions they do deign to grace the public with a live performance. The band will be playing a bunch of shows between December 13-16, including a few double-header days with shows at noon and in the evening.

Our only question is; has Hideout owner Tim Tuten thought ahead and reinforced the club's foundation? Because we're pretty sure that back room has never been challenged by such punishing decibel levels.

Tickets go on sale today at 2:00 p.m., so start revving up those browsers and warm up your "refresh" buttons now!

Also of note: If you dig a different wall of noise, in the form of a far-out marching band, Mucca Pazza has their own multi-day residency at Hideout, starting tonight and running through Saturday.
