- The Innocence reissue
If the debut episode of Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways gave you a hankering for some early-80s Chicago punk, you’re in luck. Tonight Liar’s Club hosts the release party for the reissue of Rights of the Accused’s 1984 debut, Innocence, which primo Humboldt Park microlabel Alona’s Dream put out on Halloween. The seven-inch comes with a bunch of goodies—a lyrics sheet, poster, sticker, and, apparently, a reproduction of the receipt for the recording session—and Alona’s Dream will have copies of a special red-cover version on sale at the party.
Necros and Big Chief vocalist Barry Henssler and original Rights of the Accused drummer Anthony Illarde are among those set to DJ tonight; it all kicks off at 9 PM. Take a listen to the title track while you pull up couch cushions looking for loose cash to spend on the seven-inch.
