Friends With Benefits and Yep Roc Records present Radio Birdman's Zeno Beach record release party, in conjunction with Burn My Eyes poster art show.

The release of Zeno Beach sees our heroes coming back after a twenty-five year hiatus.

Radio Birdman info (from the Yep Roc site):
After forming more than thirty years ago, Australian rock pioneers Radio Birdman will finally tour the US for the first time this summer, hitting a series of major cities throughout August and September. Featuring four of the six original members, these shows will be a unique opportunity to catch this legendary Australian underground band live. To make things even better, the band will also be releasing a new album on Yep Roc Records, Zeno Beach, their first new recording in twenty five years. Ann Arbor born guitarist Deniz Tek and vocalist Rob Younger started Radio Birdman in 1974 in Sydney, Australia. They envisioned a band that would break rules and have no regard for the status quo of the parochial Australian rock business of the time. The band would play extremely volatile music with maximum involvement from the members at all times. It was to be an art form created from passion, with no strict format or structure, which could go in any direction at any time.

Yep Roc is set to release the disc mid August. Radio Birdman are, and always have been, independent of the mainstream music industry. The new recording, as well as their live performance schedule, is totally self-financed and self-directed. They see their independence as essential to maintaining complete artistic freedom. What you hear is solely the creative output of the band - not a marketing strategy. This year will be an eventful one for Radio Birdman and their many fans. Those who love the real thing are invited to climb aboard...it promises to be an amazing trip.

In conjunction with the Radio Birdman "ZENO BEACH" Record Release Party, we will be featuring the Burn My Eyes poster show featuring Stainboy, Ron Donovan/Firehouse, Chris Shaw, Alan Hynes, Lil Tuffy, Richie Goodtimes, & Paul Imagine.

Stainboy, famed Florida poster artist and Ron Donovan (Firehouse SF) will be creating original posters for this event.

Giveaways including tickets to the Radio Birdman show on Aug 31st (at Great American Music Hall), silk screened posters, and cds compliments of
Stainboy and Yep Roc, and Friends With Benefits.
