If it comes as a shock that punk rock has a gender problem, you’re either not paying attention or you’re new here.
A lot of people may prefer to ignore the violence, or brush it under the rug. That’s not what I’m asking. This isn’t about turning a blind eye to Flint’s problems or waving the banner of “vibrancy” while teenagers in other neighborhoods are gunned down in the street. This is about choosing what to celebrate. This is about knowing what’s funny.
And what’s not.
For over a decade the Local’s shirts and hoodies have been made by our pals at Flint City T-Shirts. Reading owner Mike Clark’s quote in this great article reminds us why.
ICYMI: Only 12 DAYS until the release show for empire! empire! (i was a lonely estate)'s You Will Eventually Be Forgotten, which features a STACKED lineup of some of our best friends from The Reptilian, Dowsing,Warren Franklin & the Founding Fathers, and MORE!
Info and tickets are available in the link below!
We hope to see you there!
I just realized that I get to work this show from 2pm to midnight, approximately. Oh god. 10 hours running a punk show. This may be the day that I die.
This is going to be SUPER fun. Come watch some of the best emo bands around while our house manager Sara goes a little insane w/ stress. It’s cool. It’ll be fine. It’s gonna be fun!
At the end of this month empire! empire! (i was a lonely estate) will be hosting a release show for their new album, You Will Eventually Be Forgotten. Let me tell you, this lineup is CRAZY stacked. We hope we will see you there and share in this overwhelming excitement with us!
Info and tickets are available in the link below.

TIME TO POST THE LAST OF THE LYRICS, just under the gun since the album is streaming at Interview Magazine tomorrow! This is the last song of the album, called “The Promise That Life Can Go on No Matter How Bad Our Losses”. We can’t wait for you to hear the entire thing tomorrow! ♥♥♥♥♥
On New Year’s Eve last December,
I was out on tour playing a show at the Fire in Philadelphia
while you were all alone at home
(the only body occupying our lonely apartment)
I watched the TV through the window from outside the bar
and counted down the seconds to the new year with you
over the phone
But I couldn’t kiss you at midnight
I couldn’t hold you in my arms
The sound of your voice was weighted,
like the way a branch heavy with snow bows down
before it breaks
Is this still worth putting our lives on hold for?
Added some alone time to the end of tour.
Come keep us company
