My camera is broken... my car is broken... and I'm broken... sort of. I was this close to giving up on this website, but thankfully lots of people gave me inspiration to keep my nose to the grindstone and to keep up the good fight (Thanks Geena). I'm still kinda irked that I got NO Pictures of the Sub/Hum/Ans, but thanks to a certain someone, I'm now over that. I've finished putting up our Pictures from the show @ The Boston, and you can click here to see those. I also finished the Sub/Hum/Ans Gig Review, and you can click here to check that out. I also posted lots of killer pictures of The Loud Pipes @ Jillian's, and you can click here to see those. Roxie posted some of the Pictures from Jillian's as well, so you can go to The Loud Pipes website to check those out. I still have no onethirtyeight.org stickers, so sorry to everyone that keeps asking for them. With these shows out of the way, I think we're now gonna concentrate on getting some more recording done... getting some more songs written that are not gonna be listed as Amoroso/Lopez... and getting our asses back on the road! LOL Fuck yeah! Nothing better than being on Tour in the Springtime. :-) The story on us in the City Life still hasn't seen the light of day, and I have no idea of when it will be printed. I've seen the proof from the Interview we did for Smash Magazine. It's really good, and should be out and on a news stand / record store near you sometime soon. I can just hope that we get the cover, and that Jenn or Megan's Pictures will be used. They're both awesome Photographers, and I still can't believe that Megan is moving away... booooooooooooooooooo. But at least she'll be in Long Beach with Mr. Novello, who didn't even say good-bye to me when he left Las Vegas... sniff sniff.
Where do I begin? To tell you that we totally redeemed ourselves after the Tucson fiasco show and basically slayed everyone that was checking us out @ The Boston is a major understatement. And to say that we killed everyone @ the Double Down after the show we played at the Boston is putting it politely. I'm still not sure why we played the Double Down... I think the general consensus was that we were gonna play some damn bar shows finally and show the bands that think they're sooooooooo cool 'cuz they play bar shows that if we wanted to, we could rule the 21+ scene just as easily as we rule the All Ages scene here in Las Vegas. Not saying it to be egoistical, but just stating it as fact. Anyways, you can read all about the night's festivities by clicking here. Once again, I don't know what happened to Hollywood Shane, but if he was at the Boston I didn't see him, but then again, I was pretty out of it. Oh well. The last page of Pictures from our trip to AZ. is finally up, and you can click here to see those. We had a great time, and Thanks again to Bob, Jesse and Nate for being so damn cool! Get to Jillian's early for the Sub/Hum/Ans show... it's gonna be pretty intense and will probably sell out pretty quick. Don't say that I didn't warn ya!
It has been sooooooooooooooo hard to get all the stuff I wanted to up on the website, but it's almos done, and I hope that you all enjoy it. The best part has been looking at all the Pictures and remembering all the fun I've had. Click here to see The Loud Pipes En Mexico, and click here for the Review of the Deadbolt show, and click here to read about the shenanigans in Tucson (pronounced TUCK-son) with Nate, Bob and Jesse. Seriously, I cannot thank those dudes enough. You people have no idea of how cool these trio of fine looking gentlemen are, but hopefully, someday you will. Jesse The Super Roadie took some GREAT Pictures of us playing @ Skrappy's, and you can click here to see those awesome pix. Hollywood Shane is alive and well. I finally talked to him, and our good buddy Jon-E is supposed to be coming into town for the Supersuckers show, and staying for the Sub/Hum/Ans show as well, which is now officially @ Jillian's. We don't have a guest list, so you people better get there early for that show, since there's no pre-sale available, it's first come, first served. Anyways, most of the crap is up... it's late, and I gotta get some sleep before the Supersuckers show. Hope to see you all there!
"Some people go... Hey Tony - How do you do it? And I tell them... I don't do shit... I just follow... THE WAY!" hahahahahahahaha This weekend in AZ. / Mexico was the SHIZ-NIT!!! We drank... smoked... and played our asses off, and made tons of new fans and friends everywhere we went. The first 2 shows were fantastic, and the 3rd one was a train wreck of a mess... LOL It was still just as fantastic, but a very drunken mess. I've already posted the Review of the first day of our trip, and you can read about it here, and I also posted some Pictures I took of our Tour mates By Death's Design, and you can check those out by clicking right here. I'll get the rest of the stuff up later this week, but I have no idea of when. Mucho, mucho Thanks to Bruce Zinky, Nate from the Rogue, our newest roadie Jesse and of course, Bob for being such great friends and even more gracious host to us. Without you guys, we wouldn't of had half as much fun as we did have, and man, did we ever have fun! From calling everyone a Bitch or a Joto, the Loud Pipes had a blast in AZ., and I can't wait until we go back again. This time I'll remember to lay off the tequila, I promise! LOL
Not actually, but I just wanted to have an update on MY Birthday, with my favorite # as the listed time. Anyways, to say that last nights show with Manic Hispanic was amazing is like saying that the Mona Lisa is just a painting! LOL I had sooooooooo much fucking fun! Thanks to everyone that was there to help me get an early start on my Birthday celebrating. You can see all the pretty Pictures I managed to take by clicking here. Saturday's show at Balcony Lights was really good... it wasn't fun for me, but everyone said it was one of the best shows they've seen us play, so I guess I can't complain. We sold lots of merch that night, and probably would have sold more if the damn police didn't show up to shut the gig down AGAIN! Gee... I think the police might like us! LOL Or maybe they like harassing the punk kids that come to our shows. In either case, super sweet Thanks to everyone that came out to help us celebrate our LP-EP CD release party. You can read all about it right here. Sorry to Hektor and SMASH Magazine for not being able to do the Interview after the show, but we'll make up for it this week, guaranteed, so keep an eye out for our Interview in that magazine next month. And the City Life is still gonna do a story on us, but I have no idea of when. Oh well. After calling us a "Biker Metal" band, I'm not too hyped on them at the moment. Our show in Phoenix with By Death's Design got cancelled, but that's OK, since we got offered a show with Deadbolt @ The Rogue in Phoenix! What a deal! Things are going good and I can't really complain. And Thanks to Hollywood Shane for being soooooo cool and calling me on my Birthday. And Thanks to Pitt for the Mentors shirt!
