Coming Soon: Vagrant Records West X North South 7-inch Box Set

I’ve been eyeing this for quite some time and finally got my hands on a copy.  In 1995, Rich Egan/Vagrant Records released “West X North South”, a box set of 7-inch albums from various bands.  When the albums were first released, it was priced way too low, thus selling out immediately with the label making barely anything.  The issue was later corrected when they mass released it on a CD, however the vinyl is now hard to come by.

Tracklist

I didn’t take these shots, they were taken by the kid that sold me this, but I should have this in my hands in a few days.  This is an awesome collectors item.  Follow Hometown Zero Vintage on Instagram for the first alert of its arrival.  

 

New NOFX shirt just in!

This would have been the third NOFX shirt I had in stock, but the other two I had sold this week.  My vintage NOFX tee’s seem to be going fast.  This shirt has just been listed and is a medium.  Printed on a Cinder Block Tee, this shirt is in awesome condition and soft.

Time For Another Nostalgia Show!

Almost a year ago, I had ventured out to see Face To Face in Buffalo.  What started off as a show that I had to drag myself out of the house to see, ended up being a special night.  It was sort of a wake-up call.  I’m not getting any younger, and neither are these bands that shaped my life.  That night, I told myself that I wouldn’t miss any future nostalgic shows.  Once again, the time has come.  The 25th Anniversary show for the legendary hardcore band Snapcase. The show will take place at The Town Ballroom w/Endpoint, Grade, and “Special Guest.”

As soon as I saw this advertised, I grabbed my ticket. This is going to be awesome. Or is it?  I actually have no idea.  It could actually be horrendous.  This is going to be way different then the Face To Face show.  When Snapcase played in their prime, what made them was the energy.  The crowd went ballistic.  With most of their original fans being middle aged men, I’m guessing there won’t be some weird old mosh pit forming in front of that stage.  Hopefully some youth will be venturing out to see this as well, so that it’s not just a sea of dads standing around, staring at the stage.

I’ll definitely have a followup after the show with some pictures.

Stay tuned.
