Our big thanks to everyone who came out for the Italiano Tenth Anniversary show at Radio last Friday.
The Beatings released Italiano in February 2002, giving birth to Midriff Records and beginning our voyage in the world of independent music. Italiano was picked as the fifth best record of 2002 by the Washington Post, and was received incredibly well nationally as we crisscrossed the country touring in support. Ten years and one month later, we took the stage at Radio to perform the album in its entirety. To the best we can recollect, it was a first.
The night was kicked off with a tremendous set by Louder My Dear, with frontman Dave multi-tasking the night away with DJ sets under his Celebrity Handjob moniker. Following LMD was NYC’s Relations, whose post-punk set blew us away. Keep an eye on those kids, won’t you?
