Buxton, Wild Moccasins Join New West Records

Here at Rocks Off, we try our best to cover all the local music news, both large and small. Where else are you going to read that you can play Slim Thug on Words With Friends? It is reasons such as these that we trudge the war zones of RSS feeds, seeking out crucial tidbits of information.

OK, maybe that Slim Thug bit is a bad example. But we do come across breaking news, like today's early morning announcement that Buxton (above) and Wild Moccasins have been signed to independent label New West Records. Congratulations to both of the bands; they've certainly put in a lot of work over the past year.

What'll it be for the soundtrack this week? Perhaps this new sampler from local label Agro-Wax Records, featuring songs from Janitor, Crime Wave, and The PRMC will do the job. Note: Cover NSFW.

Or perchance you'd like to grab rapper ILL LiaD's new album, Salvation.

There are a lot of shows out there this weekend, so we thought we'd highlight a few:
