Nitetrotter not dead

We have a lot cooking here at Nitetrotter. We pushed Nitetrotter day back for sake of the website being worked on. It is going to be amazing trust us. We would apologize for any ill feelings people perceived of negativity towards Daytrotter from us. For the record we love Daytrotter and we hope they love us as they put Jt's pic back up on their website.
FYI our logo is not us killing the unicorn, rather its horn is being cut off for the sake of gaining its magickal powers. We are aware of how unlucky it is to kill a unicorn.

A personal apology from Mr. Nitetrotter himself

Dear Nitetrotter readers,

 You may be a hater or a lover of Nitetrotter but that isn't the point. This site has been started to put more of a focus on local music and it has been working. NITETROTTER IS NOT ANTI DAYTROTTER!!! Just think of us as their schwag bisexual bastard brother that they try not to acknowledge. 

Peace in 2010

Mr. Nitetrotter

January 27th is NITETROTTER DAY!

Remember when we all used to be friends, and we could sit around talking and listening to a bad ass CD? Me neither, take a quick trip down memory lane. Copy & Paste Away!

Who wants a free official NITETROTTER T-Shirt?

Everyone who attends the Lizz King show we are presenting at Mixtapes on January 18th will receive a FREE official Nitetrotter t-shirt. 

Who is Andrew WK? Another conspiracy!

We heard rumors around town that the guy who came and performed at Ribco this year wasnt the Andrew WK that we saw on MTV back in the early 00's. It seems as though an actor was used to perform as Andrew WK on all the videos and the person who came to the Daytrotter show was probably the real Andrew WK who was behind it all. We still arn't sure and if anyone could help us figure this out please email or put comments up here. 

Heres a reflection of Steev Mike in the mirror in the Party Hard video.

We still haven't decided but we like the whole idea of it and find it interesting as Andrew WK's music is pretty mind numbing.

Here is a link to a weird website devoted to the issue. Steev Mike

2010 announcement from Mr. Nitetrotter

Greetings comrades and enemies. Nitetrotter is starting 2010 off with a bang. We will be fully launching Nitetrotter on January 27th, 2010. We have been gathering sessions like crazy while gearing up with tape machines and printing presses. 

In 2010 Nitetrotter will be a force to reckon with. To clear things up this blog was not started just to put down Daytrotter for being incredibly lame. It just has happened to become the vehicle for such ideas. The views found on here are of the respectful authors and should not reflect the views of Nitetrotter as an organization.

If you or anyone you know are interested in recording a Nitetrotter session in either East Moline or Chicago this year please let us know. We plan on recording over one thousand sessions in 2010.

We have some amazing shows in the works in both East Moline and Chicago. Make sure to check out Juiceboxx, Big Fun 4ever, Terrior Bute, Eyes, Sleeper Wakes Society and ARU on Thursday at Mixtapes.
