Spring Heeled Jack News
After the Pietasters/Pilfers/SHJ tour, the boys will be taking a break from the road for a while, playing local shows only, probably. No dates have been confirmed after this tour as far as shows are concerned. They are taking a break to put all their time writing and recording a new album. Though no new label has been set up, you can be sure the negotiations will be soon, and recording will start very soon after a deal is made. Keep heading to SpringHeeledJack.com for all the latest news and info.

The Space, Worcester, MA News
Worcester, MA's the Space was shut down at the end of August for not having proper permits and the like. Many amazing bands have performed there and it was very supportive of the local, DIY lifestyle. NEWS: The mayor of Worcester has said that if the Space becomes a legal non-profit organization that he will approve funding from the city to help renovate it and will continue to give the Space money in oncoming years. It's going to involve a lot of filling out applications and possibly providing financial records to the city. The re-opening of the Space still looks like it will be a long ways off but at least it's beginning to get somewhere.
