ERASE ERRATA ANNOUNCE FINAL TWO SHOWS

August 19, 2015

We are sad to announce that beloved DIY art-punk band Erase Errata are playing their final two shows in October. Erase Errata have been one of the most exciting bands of the past 20 years and we are beyond honored to have been able to release their album, Nightlife, and their “Damaged” / “Ouija Boarding” 7”.

Here’s a message from Erase Errata singer/guitarist Jenny Hoyston about the final two shows:
It's with mixed emotions that I announce that Ellie, Bianca, and I have decided to call it quits on this project after 16 mind blowing years. The final Erase Errata shows will be in Austin and Houston, Texas on October 16 and 17, 2015. I want to thank Ellie, Bianca, and Sara for changing my life forever, and to thank everyone who came to our shows and bought records, all of our support team (Scott Comeau, Maya Pedersen, Lindsay B. and many others), our auxiliary guest players Christina Files, Weasel Walter, Kim Gordon, Archie McKay, Jaél Navas García, Collin Dupuis, Eric Bauer, and others, plus Troubleman Unlimited, Kill Rock Stars, Dim Mak, WEA, Mute/Blast First, Sonic Youth, Le Tigre, Melt Banana, Aislers Set, Damo Suzuki, The Fall, Pansy Division, Bratmobile, The Gossip, Luke Tweedy, Norm Druce, all of the promoters world-wide who put on shows for us and YOU. So grateful. Thank you. Who knew an awkward little butch from Freeport, Texas would end up performing in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe in addition to North America? Not me! What a ride. So grateful. ❤‼
