It's almost like they don't want people to go to the gigs here in town nowadays... lol Well, at least it seems like they don't want you to get there early at the very least. Who the Hell plans out these lineups and thinks 'Gee, this will put asses in the seats and create a good vibe and lots of energy for the headliners to feed off of'? Or is it more along the lines of 'Gee, these are some of the best and most popular "Punk" bands in the scene right now, so let's get them to open up the gigs and fill the place up with their paying fans and friends'? LOL Or maybe it's just nepotism rearing it's ugly head. Yeah, probably that. Meh. Whatever. Wasn't like I was going anyways. The Downtown thing is just the icing on a huge shit cake, with both bands cruising on the fumes of Nostalgia and not having a proper release in years between the 2 of them as being my main reason not to go see these 2 PRP type of lame ass bands. Add the boring. bland, predictable soft rock poseur Punx bands as openers and its like Kryptonite to the guy in the red cape flying in the air. No thanks. Enjoy your snoozefest. I'm sure it will sell out and the people on social media will say how "amazing" and "life changing" and "incredible" it was, to which my reply is always, 'Oh, if only you saw them X amount of years ago when they were good!', which is one of the benefits of being an old bastard like me... heh heh Remember when GBH played that Irish Mexican restaurant in El Monte back in '81 to like, 40 people? Or remember when Johnny Peebucks And The Swingin' Utters played at The Caves in '93 to like 20 people? Yeah... didn't think so, but hey! Enjoy your gig Downtown! LOL
