FAKE PROBLEMS IN NAPLES, FL
Hey! Just a little update - we’ve just gotten back from Los Angeles, where we spent the past two months working on our 4th record with producer Ted Hutt (he did our last record “Real Ghosts Caught On Tape” as well as some amazing records for bands like The Gaslight Anthem, Lucero and The Bouncing Souls). We will have more information about that record in the coming months.
We’re playing a very special all-ages show in Naples at the end of this month - at a place called “The Artis”. Thursday, October 24th. For those who don’t know, The Artis is the new name of the Naples Philharmonic - a place I’ve been going to (taken to) since I was 7 years old to see things like The Nutcracker, countless orchestras and, a few years ago, Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz band (it was awesome).
This is a pretty special moment in time for us - having brand new music to share, and in a beautiful building historic to our hometown of Naples. We’re honored to be playing and we hope you’ll join us for this show.
You can get tickets for a limited time at the link at the bottom of this post.
Tickets are $10, and that includes a free drink at the bar (and you love to drink)

It’s rare that we do compilations here at PropertyOfZack, but they tend to be special ones when we do. Today it’s a true pleasure to be taking the wraps off of a special charity-fueled compilation that we’ve been working on for a month or two now called The Big Comp by Big Footprints, Lame-O Records, and POZ.
Big Footprints is the marriage of musical and artistic communities around the world for the betterment of our environment. Donations will be going to The Nature Conservancy - a non-profit organization that works towards reforestation. We will also be participating in TNC’s Adopt An Acre program, where we will be adopting acres of land in The Appalachian Mountains, The Northern Rockies, The Southern Coastal Plains, as well as adopting acres of Coral Reef.
And when we say big, we mean it. For a minimum of $5 you can download 75 fantastic tracks by 75 different bands with all donations (minus Bandcamp fees) going directly to charity.
PropertyOfZack, Big Footprints, and Lame-O Records would like to thank No Sleep Records, Run For Cover Records, Topshelf records, Paper + Plastick Records Records, Pure Noise Records, Asian Man Records, Tiny Engines Records, and of course all the bands and artists involved in this great comp.
What are you waiting for? Check out the artwork and track listing and download the 75 band comp for a minimum of $5 (or more) below by clicking “Read More.”
Previously unreleased Fakey P track on this thing! Thanks to POZ and Modern Baseball dudes for having us.
