Last night saw the third birthday bash of one of our favourite local gig promoters, CRY PARROT.
These guys have been putting on DIY gigs for three years and have put on some amazing shows. We could do a list of all the bands they have put on, but they've done that already and you can see it here. It would take all day to list them, but suffice to say that 8 of the acts on FUCKNO have played for them, so you know they've got good taste.
They have not one but TWO free compilation albums available for download through our other local favourites Winning Sperm Party, which you really should get. To make it as easy as possible, here are the direct download links:
Happy Birthday guys, and here's to many more years of great gigs!
