This coming Saturday the 28th of August we've got a very special Hole in the Sky party happening down at Goodgod Small Club. Tortoiseshell are launching their single This Girl which we released in June/July, digitally and on vinyl. The song has had only positive feedback since its release and caused quite the stir amongst various bloggy types. It has also since been added to rotation on FBI and Triple J.

We're particularly excited about this Hole in the Sky party for three reasons:

1) This will be the FIRST time Tortoiseshell have played live as Tortoiseshell! Previously called Tennis, they've been in hibernation working on some amazing new songs and this will be your first chance to hear them.
2) Goodgod Small Club recently reopened! And considering the integral role Goodgod has played/plays in Sydney's underground music scene, you can understand why this news has everyone feeling pretty jazzed.
3) This Saturday marks the first in a series of Hole in the Sky parties that we'll be hosting down at Goodgod. So there are a whole lot of reasons why this Saturday is going to be great. Details on the flyer below...

It goes without saying that this is going to be a super good time of a night. I you haven't heard this man play records before here's a little taster of the JR vibe  (actually a RUNAWAY mix but he's 50% of that project too)

Big thanks to all those who came down to see POND push their heaviness around town and help raise some cash for the Haiti earthquake victims at Good God last Friday!
The night was a whole lot of fun and a big success in that we raised $4000 which will go to UNICEF and Medecins San Frontiers.
The vibe at the party was so great, thanks again to all the good good people who turned up to party down - HITS loves you!!
