Somebody on Facebook posted a link to a story about 2 Local bands that got signed by some label out of Oregon called Squid Hat Records. The 2 bands are the Gashers and The Dirty Panties. You can click here to check that story out. I can understand the Dirty Panties getting signed, because they've been around for a while now and have definitely paid some dues, but the Gashers signing is a bit odd, because they haven't played that many gigs or released anything yet, but I was told by a member of the band that they were signed on the strength of the Peccadilloes, who I guess are officially finished now, and that's where the Gashers all originally came from. The label has an interesting perspective as far as associating themselves with the Double Clown and Punk Jock Bowling, but other than that minor annoyance I think what they're up to is pretty damn cool. I'm looking forward to hearing the Product that comes from those 2 bands and that label. It should be pretty good, considering how much Talent both those bands have.

Oh, if you need tickets to that Pedophilties / Lower Class Brats gheyness that's happening @ the Bunkhouse Saloon this Saturday, you can get them directly (and cheaply) from the Civilians, who are opening along with Vihan Rytmi, by clicking here. I will be nowhere near that lame ass gig, and I have no comment on the bands opening and why they're playing the gig. I guess when you have a soft spot for a band you had a hard on for when you were a kid looks a bit silly 20 years down the road when you're not such a Poseur anymore... heh heh
OK, I think I've rambled enough for today. I'm getting sleepy... very sleepy, and this 7 Seconds I'm blasting at a ridiculously loud volume just ain't cutting it anymore. Everything is updated. I re-added the LV Local Music Scene .Com Compilation Vol. 2 to the Tunes page (click here to re-associate yourself with it), and I made it available for download too. I did the same with the Public Humiliation posting I did before as well. I also re-added a couple of old Show Reviews too, one from the Die Laughing / Vihan Rytmi / Nests / Internal Corrosion gig @ The Arts Factory a while back (click here to read that) and one from the Melt Banana / 400 Blows / Life's Torment gig @ The Bunkhouse from a while ago, and you can click here to read that one if you want. I got a bunch of Music Reviews coming up too, so yeah, things are getting better around the ol' website. So far so good I say.
