In case you haven’t already heard, Anthony Poynter (Sidejar Records, Crucial Fun Fest, Lexington punk shows, etc.) has been diagnosed with cancer.
A benefit compilation is in the process of being put together to help raise some money to pay for various expenses Anthony has and is about to encounter.  If you’re in a band, submit a track! 
Anthony has always been a really great friend.  I first met him while I was on my first tour ever.  It was just me playing solo.  Anthony let me hop on a show at Chaosome with Pedals On Our Pirate Ships, Backwoods Terror, and some metal band whose name I don’t remember.  I wound up staying at his house that night.  We dumpstered a bunch of veggies from Kroger, made a nice meal, and sipped on Ale8.  Before I went to sleep, I’ll never forget what Anthony said to me: “You know, the funny thing about sleep is that anyone could kill you, and you wouldn’t even know.”
Since then, Anthony and I have been trading shows, split releasing records, playing basketball, and making burritos.  He’s a great guy, and could use all the support and encouragement he can get right now.
Click through for the Facebook event page for the comp.  Benefit shirts coming soon as well as a multitude of benefit shows.
It would mean the world to me, the bands I’m in, the rest of the DIY punk community, and anybody who knows Anthony if you supported this is any way, even if that just means sending the link to your friends or posting it on Facebook.
“I know shit is gonna be hard and tough on me, my mom and my family, and even a lot of you, but I want you all to know that even through all the crying today I don’t view death as an option. When you think of me I want it to be fun positive thoughts. I’ll make it through this, and when all is said and done I will have many of you to thank for the help and support along the way.”

anthony is awesome and im really happy to see so many people supporting him. this comp will probably be coming out soon and everyone should buy one and help anthony get through this.

          Young Mountain has a new LP coming out called “A Billion Times Around”. These guys, as I’ve said before, are a really nice gem to find the underground punk scene. This new release has a few noticeable differences from their last releases though and it’s obvious that they’re figuring out their new sound in the midst of the changes. First off, it seems they’ve dropped their folk tag due to their recent lineup changes but all that really means is that they’ve dropped an acoustic guitar, which goes to show how trivial labels are especially in punk/emo/core genres. Nevertheless their songwriting remains as infectious as ever and their lyric content takes a clear direction towards equality, activism, and growing up through the eyes of a New England college kid. The only real drawback on this release seems to be the production. It can be inconsistent at times, you lose the vocals among other things, and some of the songwriting and performance is lost in guitar fuzz. But considering I just went through hell mixing and mastering on my own, I know how it is and it’s completely understandable in a D.I.Y. release to have to cut some corners. Or maybe the copy I received is just mixed for vinyl and cassette, in which case I’ll just have to get them to find out. All in all, I think it takes balls to put that sort of transition on record, especially a debut. They’ve got plenty of room to grow into themselves with a new full-time lineup sometime in the future.

Some of the highlights are the opening “PC Doesn’t Stand for Personal Computer Anymore” complete with Glenn Beck making an idiot of himself and all girl gang vocals, “Mixed Signals” with a circle-pit worthy chorus, and the returning “‘97 Blazer” that has some of their more heartfelt lyrics on the record.

So make sure to get it when it comes out, support the local scene. Here’s the link to preorder and get all sorts of other goodies: http://getbetterrecords.storenvy.com/
