John Iskander, grand marshal of Parade of Flesh, is offering passes good for all of his upcoming shows through the end of the year--an especially good deal when you factor in the extras.
For $80 each, ten music lovers will receive passes good for the 15 shows he has listed so far, with another six in the works--plus prints of any silkscreen gig posters created for the shows. They include some pretty hot tickets, too, like Wavves, Japandroids, Local H and tomorrow night's Ear PWR/Toro Y Moi/Giggle Party show. Anyone interested should e-mail Iskander.
In related news, all upcoming Parade shows at Pastime Tavern have been relocated to other venues due to the owner putting the kibosh on all-ages shows. That includes tomorrow night's Ear PWR show, which will instead be at Good Records. The August 31 Sleepy Stone/True Widow show will be held at City Tavern, and the September 26 Birds Of Avalon and October 9 Wavves shows will both take place at The Lounge on Elm Street.
