Friday night is for the Girlfriends, Saturday night is for Fun... or something like that. Yeah, new look for the website. Whatever. It's 2013, a sprucing up was over due. I'm still compelled, and always will be, but I get bored oh so easily now... heh heh
Great weekend. Everyone was complimentary to me, which was odd. I saw fucking Battle Born absolutely KILL IT on Sat. night, playing an impressive set that had me stunned stoned and stupid. Maybe it was because I haven't seen them in a while or whatever but gawd damn were they good. They played everything that their girlfriends told them to do, like the good little boys that they are, the shnooks... heh heh That Backstage Bar & Billiards place is OK. If it was anywhere else but Downtown, I would totally be hanging out there. Of course, I have a Horror themed bar no less than 5 minutes away from me right now, but I never hang out there because their beer selection sucks. But I digress. I saw TheCore. play too. It was good seeing those guys fucking rage on the stage, but they had something going on with Brian's bass rig their entire set and it definitely deterred from an otherwise majorly kick ass performance. I fucking LOVE that song Meet Me At Nipsey's that they do, and they opened their set with Scene Kid Sacrilege. :-) Brian told me before they played that he was going to give me something to bitch about, because apparently I always do, and damn if he wasn't right! ha ha And although the night was all about By Death's Design, once all the old guys and girls started drunken Hardcore dancing and swinging their arms around like jackasses and bumping into people I split. I got waaaaayyyy better things to do than deal with that gheyness. They were good up to that point though. Danny informed me beforehand about all the Drama that went on between The Loud Pipes and By Death's Design back in the day, stuff that went on when I wasn't in the band, and it was kind of ironic I guess that they were now playing their one time reunion show at a club that an ex Loud Pipe is now the Manager of. Go figure, right? I guess that's why Danny was walking around with his old Loud Pipes vest on... heh heh And if it was a one time only reunion show, why were they playing a butt load of new songs? Hmmmm...
After eating some disgusting food @ Le Thai I headed towards Artifice where I caught the tail end of some gig going on @ Hellpop! Comics featuring the Time Crashers, Geezus Cryst & Free Beer, and Fuzz SoLow. They had some cool fire pits outside but it was still a bit chilly so I headed into Artifice, were I watched an impressive display of Local talent provide the live soundtrack to the Rocky Horror Picture Show, which was being projected on one of the larger walls in the joint. They had performers dressed as characters from the movie there as well, and people were yelling out the lines at the screen, just like you do in the theaters when it's being shown, and I'm ashamed to admit I've forgotten most of those lines, and nobody was throwing toast or rice or anything, unfortunately, but it was still majorly fun. And by fun I mean I got drunk and bonded with Steve from Double Down Radio over our Love for Bon Scott era AC/DC and being compelled to do things. ;-) I ended the night hanging out with Bob (of course) eating hamburgers out of a bag and mixing a Local bands demo for future posting on the website. I only saw the band once, but the blew me away. I bought their demo and never heard anything from them ever again. Bob says he knows them, so I'm gonna try to hook up an Interview with the band and see what happens. Should be fun. :-)
Speaking of fun, Dean and Rusty have been having some fun putting together the first trio of skateboard videos compiled from all the footage shot at the Ditch Dust BBQ with J.F.A. a while back, and they came out pretty good. Will there be more? I dunno, but you can click here to go to their newly established Blue Tile Lounge YouTube channel and hit the Subscribe button so you make sure you never miss out on anything they post. I'm sure there will be plenty more videos coming from that demented duo...
Everything is updated. New Videos uploaded from CH3 and the Hard Pipe Hitters on the Videos page, and you can click here to check those out. I also posted some photos I took of G.F.I. when they played @ the LVCS a few weeks ago, and you can click here to check those out if you haven't already. Everything is going great, bar for a bit of horrifically bad medical news I received Friday, but whatever. It is what it is and I'm not going to let it get me down or stop me from doing what I'm doing. Well, until I'm physically unable to anyways... heh
