Lurch & Dom Live Broadcast from the Grindhouse this Sun. Jan. 30th

In celebration of Lurch's 21st birthday this week, Lurch and Dom of DIU Productions will be doing their live broadcast TV show this Sunday Jan. 30th on location at the infamous "Grindhouse" in Bristol, CT!! Home of FTI Records' DJ Cubed, Kryptik & 5:AM, Wasted Talent's Asylum Lifetime & DeeJay Numchucks, and Lewn Music's Father Fat Jono. Tune in to the Lurch & Dom Live Broadcast on DIU TV from 8:00PM to 10:00pm this Sunday night to witness the chaos!! (Please don't show up at our house, this is a private broadcast and you will be met with the ravenous force of an animal army consisting of a half-dingo half-pitbull, 4 semi retarded cats, a ferret that thinks it's a cat, a Griffin, several fish and a midget turtle. You're just lucky House doesn't live here anymore otherwise there would be a whole other list of weird shit.)

Remembering Ben Wu

Today marks the 3 year mysterious and unsolved disappearance of Ben Wu, a man who ran the Webster Theatre for most of his life and was responsible for giving many local CT musicians their first chance to perform on a real stage. Ben worked closely with myself & FTI Records, from putting us on our first shows ever, to letting us open for a laundry list of our favorite performers over the years, to eventually giving us the opportunity to put on shows of our own, and he is responsible for the relationship that we still maintain with the Webster today even under different ownership & management. So if you are coming to the show this Sat. Jan 15th at the Webster, please take a quick second to close your eyes and think of Ben while you're there, as many of us CT artists do every time we step on that stage. - Kryptik

"Hard to believe that Ben Wu has been gone for three years today. I still think there is a chance that he's on a spiritual journey in life instead of in death. Presumptions are just that." -Brash
