Absolutely sickening how people I know fawn and gloat over it.
Not only is it, again, a rehash of bands that have just played or who have played PRP before, but it's also taking place Downtown, where everybody Locally complains about going to see shows at the LVCS on a regular basis. Is that boycott of the Beauty Bar still a thing? LOL Sure, you bitch about paying $10 for parking and then paying $11 for a PBR tall can every other time of the year, but when the annual Stern Bros. fleecing comes 'round, you all trip over yourselves to participate.
Why not everyday? / Are you so afraid? / What will people say?
I mean, damn, look at this farce. Ministry? Really? And people I know have been trying to get Excel out here ever since they got back together and started playing, but those Rockstars sucked off and got the Stern Bros. offal, so fuck them. I like how they're now a bunch of spiky hair tattoo'd Hardcore looking motherfuckers, when back in the day they were a bunch of sissy long haired surfer boys sporting tie dyed tee shirts and Vision skate shorts. And when did mariachi music become Punk? When did white boy mariachi music become good? And does Good Riddance only play final farewell shows at PRP? Is that their shtick now? Poison Idea and Slapshot on the same bill? Boy, talk about selling out! Are Choke and Jerry A. going to get into a bleeding forehead contest? Will that guy in the Local band with a cause that does that as well at every gig they play get up on stage and show them how it's done? LOL And I'm not even gonna comment on that Infeshit band opening. Seems ol' Harold Blanco found himself a mixture of old and new suckers to follow him down that rabbit hole again. Good luck girls - you're gonna need it. Make sure to watch out that your gear doesn't get stolen! LOL Leftover Crack was just here, so was Agent Orange, and D.I. is playing here in a few weeks with The Dickies. Yawn. Beardcore runs rampant, D.O.A., Dayglo Abortions, Anti-Nowhere League and Angelic Upstarts keep selling nostalgia to gullible fools looking to check bands off their 'must-see before they die' list. Teenage Bottlerocket, just like their idols in KISS, don't let a little thing like a brother dying from stopping that money making machine from running on, and the token Reggae / Soul whatever gig would be dead empty if happening here on any other night of the year. Gawd, I can go on and on and on with this public proctocolectomy, but what's the point? You know you're gonna go, just like you did last year, and you're gonna bitch about it, just like you did last year, and then when it's all said and done, you'll swear that you're over it, that you're not gonna support it and attend it anymore, because you're sick of getting ripped off and taken for granted by the powers that be in the upper PRP echelon - just like you said last year.
