Deadfest is this weekend. Don't miss out and stay home. Day one will rule as well...even if the Big Crux show is two blocks away.

In other news, this is happening soon... 

Also, you can now be our "friends" on Facebook. Beating DIY ethics to death in the year 2011.

Back from a very successful tour. Thanks to anyone/everyone who let us take up space on their floors, came to shows, or was in any way a part of such an overwhelmingly enjoyable experience. Being able to watch and hang out with Ordstro every night was an extreme pleasure, and we couldn't have asked for a better group of people to travel with. If you're haven't heard or seen them live, you are missing out and should be ashamed of yourself. Do yourself a favor and click the link so you can be enlightened. The next Stares show will most likely be in August with Vile Intent and Godstomper in Oakland. More information will become available when a flyer surfaces. If all goes as planned, a new recording will be completed in the very near future as well. In the meantime, the following bands can and should be listened to as much as humanly possible...

Rape Revenge (Calgary, Alberta)
StressxRelief (Redding, CA)
Negative Standards (Oakland, CA)
AHNA (Vancouver, BC)
Obacha (Squamish, BC)
Napalm Raid (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
Bridgeburner (Kamloops, BC)
Registeredsexoffender (Reno, NV)
Honduran (Portland, OR)
Wasichu (Portland, OR)

We will have a second pressing of the demo, since we sold out of the first one. It will come in some kind of "special" packaging so that those lucky enough to grab one on tour can differentiate themselves from the rest of the world. Keep checking in as we will be adding links to flyers/facebook pages/etc so that you may stay completely informed on every detail regarding this blasphemous event.

Stay vile.

This show will be crowded. Get the early and make sure you don't have to stand outside. Torch Runner and DNF are from out of town, so bring money. The following night, they will be perfoming at SF's Sub-Mission Gallery. The flyer for that show can be found here. Extra credit for attending both.

The Stares//Ordstro July tourette is still being worked out. Dates are July 1-July 9. We will be posting exact cities/tour flyers soon.

Upcoming show with LA's Arctic Choke and ACxDC, the latter of which is on tour. Reno's Registeredsexoffender is also performing, as is an unnamed guest. This will be an amazing show. Come out and support bands who kept playing powerviolence when everyone else was getting old and boring. If you plan on standing in the back of the room with your arms crossed, this show is not for you. An arguably worse flyer (or better, depending on your punk credibility) can be found here.

Also, this coming summer will include new recordings and a northwest tour with our comrades in Ordstro. Get ready to get uncomfortable.

Last minute show this Thursday, March 3rd. At the Stud Bar in SF. Starts after dark. Zero dollars for anyone over the age of twenty-one.

Show up and ruin fun.

Monday, February 7, 2011


Next show coming up is on March 9th at Hazmat. Bring money for the touring bands. We also still have tapes available. Three dollars for those bold enough to make the investment.

Also, some friends in Acts of Sedition (see: Negative Standards) are still in the process of recovering financial losses due to stolen equipment. There are some benefit shows coming up this month that are more than worthy of your measly expendable income. Flyers for those can be found here and here.

Last-minute show with DNF. West Oakland house party. The living room is small, so show up early to avoid standing in the hallway and looking like an asshole. Be nice, people have to live there.

We will also have demo tapes available. They are hand-etched out of fifty. Don't blow it.
