Our favorite trio of Prague Rockers, The Maggie’s Marshmallows, is hitting the road this month for a highly anticipated European Tour in support of their self-titled debut album, released last fall on Get Hip Recordings.
Maggie’s kicks off their tour March 9 in Bratislava, Slovakia, accompanied by Toronto Garage-Punk kings and Get Hip labelmates Pow Wows. This killer combo will tear through Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic before parting ways–Maggie’s heading across the Channel for a string of dates in the UK while Pow Wows detour through Spain.
Don’t miss them!

The name Get Hip Records may not conjure images of acoustic guitars and understated chamber-folk arrangements. Not yet anyway.
But after more than three decades as one of the world’s most reliable sources of rock and roll that truly rocks, from the primal garage-punk aesthetic that continues to define The Cynics to more recent purveyors of reckless abandon like Paint Fumes and France’s Weird Omen, the venerable independent label is about to launch the Get Hip Folk Series.
Cynics guitarist and label-owner Gregg Kostelich explains the decision to expand Get Hip’s horizons: “I’ve always liked folk, blues, jazz and other types of music and I feel there was a need to release other genres to fill this void within Get Hip.”
The first release arrives April 7 — an album from Some Kind of Animal, whose first single, a bittersweet chamber-folk ballad called “Seasons,” was released last fall. Arriving April 28, it’s an album of raw acoustic folk blues as well as a handful of tracks that are closer in spirit to singer-songwriter music from Zack Keim of Nox Boys. And hopefully, you’re ready for the country, too, because May brings an album from the great Slim Forsythe.
All three artists are from Pittsburgh, home of Get Hip and the Cynics. But don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s a locals-only proposition. They’ll expand the roster as they go with more exciting new releases to announce before the year is out.

Paint Fumes, our favorite trio of Charlotte-area trash rockers, is heading to The Big Apple on March 4 to film a live set for the upcoming HBO series Volume. Pretty cool, huh?
The guys will be tearing down the house (as they so often do) at The Footlight in Queens, NY. The Othermen, PMS & The Mood Swings, Church Bats, and The Pizza Boys will lend their hands to the infectious rabblerousing. This is one you shouldn’t miss!
