I heard about this a while back. I also heard that it was good for awhile, but apparently, there's been a relapse, which is never good. I'm talking about Cory from the amazeballz band Nests, who had battled Cancer last year and like I said, was doing a Hell of a lot better until recently. The sickness has come out of remission and is more aggressive than before. Adrian is setting up a benefit show to help out with some funds, and as soon as more info is known about it I'll let ya know. In the meantime, a PayPal account has been set up, and I urge to you give whatever you can, and give until it hurts. Every little bit helps.
PayPal account to help out Cory from Nests.
The Huntridge Theater went through it's great whitewashing this weekend, and I'm sure all the Taggers and Bangers will be very appreciative for the free canvases for their work. Some bands played, I thought there was no advanced notice about the bands playing, but I was told that nobody likes to give me advance notice about their gigs because I'm mean. I thought that was cute. Shame too, because I had nothing to do all Sat. afternoon and would of loved to have taken pictures of the bands that played. Oh well. Even the story in the paper pointed out that the majority of the people helping out with that project had never seen a show there in their life, and were just part of the Downtown herd of llamas. The guy quoted in the story, the one who was crying about the Huntridge being restored, made me laugh with his 'The Huntridge has the best acoustics ever' comment. That place sucked as far as sound or acoustics go. I thought everybody knew that?
I missed this when it came out, but someone on Facebook posted it, and I'm just passing it along. It's a review that ran in the Las Vegas Review-Journal on the upcoming Desert Rats With Baseball Bats compilation. Shout outs were given to S.F.T., The People's Whiskey, Shotguns N Gasoline and Aluminum Falcon. My band was described as "waking the neighbors'. I like that. :-)
