  • Against Me! singer Tom Gabel will hit the road for a solo tour at the end of October accompanied by Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Ben Nichols (Lucero), and Tim Barry (Avail) on the Revival Tour.

    MP3: "Thrash Unreal" by Against Me!

    The frontmen will trade off playing solo sets of their own songs as well as collaborating on each others material, according to a press release from Earshot Media. Gabel is launching the tour in support of his upcoming seven-song solo EP, entitled Heart Burns (see track listing below), which will be released on CD, digitally and on vinyl by Sire Records on October 28th.

    The centerpiece of the EP is "Anna Is A Stool Pigeon," which Gabel wrote after reading about environmental activist Eric McDavid who was convicted in 2007 of conspiring to use explosives to damage corporate and government property after being implicated by an undercover FBI informant who posed as an activist. McDavid's defense has argued that he was the victim of entrapment. He currently faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

    "What struck me most about the story was a sense of familiarity," Gabel says. "I know the scene he was a part of, I used to be a part of it myself. I've thought the same thoughts, talked the same talk. I've hung out with the same people, gone to similar protests. If Eric could have become the target of an FBI sting operation, then so could I. This could have been me."

    The EP was recorded late August in Los Angeles on a short two week break in between Against Me! tours. Gabel co-produced the EP along with Billy Bush, while Butch Vig executive produced. The EP contains several guest appearances including Chuck Ragan and Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio).

    Gabel's solo tour will begin once Against Me! complete their upcoming U.S. tour with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, which begins on October 1st. Against Me! have been touring non-stop in support of their current album, the Butch Vig-produced New Wave, which was released by Sire Records in July 2007.

    Called "the most invigorating, zeitgeist-capturing rock album in years" by Spin Magazine, New Wave was named the magazine's "Album of the Year," and also appeared in the Top 10 on Rolling Stone, Blender, and's year-end "Best Album" lists. New Wave has spawned two singles, "White People for Peace" and "Thrash Unreal," which became the band's first single to chart in the U.S. when it climbed to No. 11 on the Modern Rock chart.

    Gabel has announced plans to post every Wednesday on his MySpace page, a video for each song on Heart Burns. These videos will not feature the album audio, but rather exclusive live audio of Gabel singing on camera.

    The first (for the song "100 Years of War") is already up. View it at

    He is also keeping a blog at where fans can check in to get the latest info about the upcoming tour and EP.

    The following is a report that was written after San Francisco's Outside Lands Festival, but was not published until now due to time constraints.

    SAN FRANCISCO - The first major rock music festival to grace San Francisco's Golden Gate Park in nearly four decades was a huge success last month (August 22-24), drawing a crowd that organizers estimated at over 150,000 people.

    Outside Lands celebrated its first year as the Bay Area's newest major rock festival with three days of music from artists and bands like Radiohead, Jack Johnson, Tom Petty, Beck, Andrew Bird, Widespread Panic, Wilco, Broken Social Scene, Rouge Wave, Manu Chao, Ben Harper, Primus and Rodrigo y Gabriela, among dozens of others.

    Unlike most other summer rock festivals, there were no sun burns or cases of heat exhaustion at Outside Lands. San Francisco's famously reliable fog, that the city is known world-wide for, drenched Golden Gate Park's Polo Fields for most of the three-day music festival - probably not what the over-advertised Heineken vendors wanted, but what did they expect in August on the west side of San Francisco?

    Believe it or not, Anchorage, Alaska has higher summertime temperatures, on average, than San Francisco, California (and it's not because of the hot air blowing from Sarah Palin's mouth).

    But on the last day of the festival, Sunday August 24, the sun came out and blue skies replaced low-lying clouds and mist. Having been to plenty of outdoor concerts and festivals in the hot sun, it's easy to welcome and appreciate the cooling waves of continuous fog.

    MP3s from Outside Lands lineup artists:
    "KC Accidental" - Broken Social Scene
    "Herectics" - Andrew Bird
    "Sightlines" - Rogue Wave (check out the band's other music, they're awesome.)

    When Radiohead took the stage late Friday evening, the lights surrounding the entire venue beamed up through the fog like lasers - a common site in northern California. Just ask anyone who has shone a flashlight or drove with their headlights on through the thick summer fog - you can literally cast a beam of light for as far as the eye can see.

    Perhaps this is how Stars Wars director George Lucas, a native of northern California, came up with the idea for the famous laser weapons featured in the classic trilogy.

    Anyways, the sets for good indie bands and artists - like Andrew Bird, Broken Social Scene, M. Ward, Rogue Wave - were too short, and the time delay between various acts were too short for such a huge place - literally four football fields from end to end. Next time they should also do something about the dust - that really surprised me since most of the park is lush and green (thanks to the fog and irrigation); dust is just not something you see in San Francisco.

    (photo by thegatos08 on Flickr)

    For many festival goers, it was the first night's headliner, Radiohead, that proved to be the highlight of the entire festival (not that big on Petty and Jack Johnson as headliners). Not only did they put on an amazing light show, but they sounded spectacular - better than on vinyl - which is hard for me to believe in a way, but it's true.

    There were two brief sound outages, but the band apologized for that. As if. No apology needed Thom, you guys were so awesome, everyone already had forgotten about it. It's the only reason the performance gets an A instead of an A-plus.

    Next year, assuming the fest will be held again (all indications are that the greedy promoters and investors made plenty of money) they should step it up have more real headlining bands (it is San Francisco, man), not try to cram so much on so many stages in three days and definitely invest more in facilities, and lower the three-day pass price.

    Outside the parameters of the fenced off event were hundreds, if not thousands of people, who were presumably not ticket holders but had no problem hanging out in or under trees and on strips of grass soaking in the many artists - for free, and they didn't have to wait in the lines for the disgusting portable toilets.

    Also, it'd be nice if they could come up with some innovative ways to protect the park more from environmental damage. I can't help but to feel a little guilty for the digging up of the grass (grass - not talking about that kind people - is a rare thing in SF) and how the loud music affected wildlife in and around the park.

    Nevertheless, the festival was considered a success to most who attended. Those who were most dissatisfied were area residents who lived within an earshot of the music blaring above the trees and throughout adjacent neighborhoods. The fog actually helps carry sound, so at times residents blocks and blocks away felt almost like they were part of the festival.

    There is no shortage of exciting indie releases this September and the stack is already growing high for October.

    Among the most talked about, and triumphant indie releases this September is Austin's indie sensations Okkervil River's The Stand Ins.

    MP3: "Los Coastlines" from Okkervil River's newest release

    Rock critic Will Sheff called The Stand Ins and its 2007 counterpart The Stage Names "essentially a fat-free double album. They're also striking in-progress documents of a band that continues to sharpen its bookish but brutally honest indie rock with every disc."

    Other artists and bands releasing new work this month include The Broken West, Kings of Leon, Woodlands, I Heart Hiroshama, Broadfield Marchers and Mason Proper, among many others. (Check back as this page will be updated as new music arrives).

    MP3: "Auctioneer" by Broken West from the forthcoming album Now or Heaven, released on September 9, 2008 via Merge Records.

    MP3: "I Wasn't Made For Fighting" by Woodlands from their album Heart Attack on Paper Bag Records. This is a great song for those of you who enjoy trip-hop trance mixed with rock-like interludes and vocals.

    MP3: "Punks" and "Surgery" by I Heart Hiroshama from the new album Tuff Teef

    MP3: "Warchful Hill People" by Broadfield Marchers from album The Inevitable Continuing, released on September 2, 2008.

    MP3: - "Lock and Key" by Mason Proper off the album Olly Oxen Free due out September 23, 2008 on Dovecote Records.

    IRC actively supports aspiring, and established, indie and alternative rock musicians, bands, artists and labels that make great music worthy of highlighting.

    - Band Promotion & Marketing
    - Writers, Photographers and Illustrators
    - Thank You Everyone
    - Help Spread the Word!

    New Submission Guidelines - Please read carefully

    Update (Jan. 10, 2010): We are no longer accepting submissions of 2009 music unless it accompanies a 2010 single/EP/LP release.

    Important: All submissions must be MP3 links that end with .mp3 or include attached MP3s, and follow the guidelines below completely - no exceptions. We simply have to streamline this process to keep it manageable.

    The most common reason we cannot consider a submission is because it doesn't folllow our guidelines, especially when it comes to including a MP3 (either a link or attachment).

    Due to the enormous number of submissions we receive, and the incredible amount of time it takes to go through all of submissions, we can only except MP3 links or attachments to current year/upcoming year songs.

    All MP3 link submissions must end with .mp3 and play automatically in all web browsers when clicked on (please test before submitting).

    Important: Include the album name, the song title (preferably the song title should be in your MP3 link itself) and the year of release (month, day, year) in your email (see below). Please also include your official website and/or MySpace link, and label name, if applicable.

    Make sure that your MP3 links are functional for many months to come, or indefinitely because sometimes it takes a while before we can feature your music. It's best to include at least two MP3 links, but no more than four. Please only send ONE email with everything in it.

    With each submission, you must type: "I, [Your Name, Position] give Indie Rock Cafe permission to post this music" at the end of your email. You must be an official representative of the band to submit.

    Please don't forget to include "MP3 Submission: Song Title - Band Name" in the Subject of the email; if not, we'll never see your email, or hear your music. Please do not send fancy, extra small or large formatting (like HTML) in your email submission - only plain text (ASCII).

    Email to indierockcafe at gmail (dot com)

    Required: Copy and paste the following bolded text - with your answers - into your MP3 link(s) submission email:

    Your Name/Title:

    MP3 Link(s):
    Song(s) Title (if not in the MP3 URL)

    Thanks to Everyone

    We just want to say to thank you to so many of you for sending your music, regularly visiting the blog and in general making it possible to do what we do; maybe someday soon, this can become a real job rather than a hobby (this is a very 'indie' operation). If that happens, the amount of coverage and cool indie things we can do will increase significantly. There's still a lot of great music we have all never heard, or have yet to hear, and it's our mission to bring as much of it to you as possible in an easy and concise way.

    Help Spread the Word!

    We appreciate your help in promoting the site on the web, sharing it with friends and whatever else you can think of.

You're participation helps give us the juice needed to keep up our faith that this is all worthwhile.

    You can also help by adding links from IRC to your favorite social networking sites (like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, etc.) and signing up for the “Feed Me Indie” RSS feed and sharing the site with friends.

    Starting as a hobby in 2006 to share music with friends, IRC has grown to a worldwide audience of thousands of people every day. In fact, daily traffic to this site has tripled from the winter of 2008/9 to the summer/fall of 2009, with over 100,000 unique visitors a month. Thanks especially to the thousands of regular, loyal readers who appreciate what we are trying to do, and hope to do in the future.

    If you'd like to add a link to us, or just bookmark the site with your favorite bookmarker, please do. Each time someone does this, it spreads the love and makes us want to post more. :)

    If you're linking to a specific page, please use anchor text like "Animal Collective" or "Best New Indie", depending on what the content is. That helps everyone out a lot!
