Hearsay bits: Warlock Pinchers reunion, Lion's Lair seeks new talent buyer, Meese and Kill Paradise on AP's Top 100

Ask and ye shall receive: We have it on good word that the Warlock Pinchers are planning a full scale reunion later this year, perhaps this summer, at one of the theaters around town. We've also heard that - are you ready for this?! - Dale Crover from the Melvins will reportedly be banging the skins for the Official Sound of Satan. Yowza!

Lion tamer: Received word over the weekend that the Lions Lair, a Denver institution if there ever was one, is looking for a new talent buyer for the storied dive to book local and national acts. Interested? Think you have great sensibilities in terms of what bands would make sense at the Lair? Send a resume to Tony Meggitt at 2022 E. Colfax Denver Co. 80206 or reach out via e-mail.

Pleased to Meese me: Finally, as mentioned yesterday in the item about Meese separating from Atlantic Records, that outfit along with fellow locals Kill Paradise, whose latest, The Second Effect, is out on BreakSilence Recordings, received a nod on Alternative Press magazine's 100 Bands You Need to Know list. Good to see some locals getting love. Last year, as you may recall, 3OH!3 made the list.
