Born out of a house on Tennessee St., the group of musicians and local aesthetes behind Chomp Womp tonight celebrate the release of their first "official" compilation. Not exactly a collective or a label, Chomp Womp is more the collaboration of a group of friends whose aim it is to support music they believe otherwise may not always get the voice it deserves. Each of the bands playing tonight is represented on the free compilation that will be handed out to attendees, which also includes songs by fellow locals The Armory, Bandit Teeth, The Spread Eagles, This is My Condition and Weather is Happening, among many others from the Lawrence/KS and other cities. Those who still possess tape decks will also find themselves in luck: the Lillerne Tape Club will also be providing free tape compilations. If all the free tunes aren't enough, the show is additionally an art opening featuring visual installations by Barrett Emke, Gabe Holcombe and others, with jewelry and metalsmithing by Erica Voetsch.
