See that picture on the front of the page? Yeah, it was that kind of night @ the Cheyenne Saloon. Hamm's beer on tap and Newcastle by the gallon kept us all in a glorious spirit, and the music / performance of Pentagram will forever be imbedded into my brain as one of the inadvertently funniest things I've ever seen in my Life! LOL That Singer with the Marty Feldman eyes, I dunno, there was just something about him... That Dude has seen some things man... LOL It was a fantastic night made all the more better with all the good friends that came out and made it so. Pigasus just fucking killed it, performing the only non-Metal set of the night and setting the standard for high energy Rock and Roll bands to excel to. And they all do it while smoking cigarettes! :-) Dead Neon were just in-fucking-credible and I stood directly in front of the band grinning like an idiot at the onslaught of noise they were just scattering in random directions all around the nearly empty Cheyenne Saloon. Yeah, the turnout was piss poor to say the least, but that didn't stop any of the bands playing from giving it their all. I dunno, I like 'small, intimate' gigs. You can have more silly fun with your Friends that way. Special Thanks to 21 Strong for the hook up on discount tickets to get in. And would someone tell Demon Lung to stop playing those Black Sabbath covers? Their original material is soooooo good standing out on it's own that those covers aren't even necessary.
Seattle... enough said.
Friday night @ Artifice was fun, if only for the free birthday cake and cheap booze they serve up there nightly. The fucking Naked City Romeos turned the place on it's ear and gave it a good sloppy drunk fucking and spanked it in the ass when it was through, serving up an impressive serving of kick ass Punk Rock & Roll that made a Believer out of me. They were most excellent! Same with The People's Whiskey. Why those guys aren't a bigger band in the Scene is beyond me. They're really good and they have a great drummer. It's all about the Drummer you know! ;-) The Fremonts were the Fremonts, playing a countrified set of Rock tunes that would make people like Waylon Jennings or Buck Owens proud, but I just wasn't feeling it. Spent the majority of their set watching Ruckus play that new, cool looking bass of his. People dug them though, and one of the Birthday boys got up and sang a tune with them. Fun stuff. It was like a Birthday party celebration for 3 different people up in there, so the free booze was flowing and the free cake was being eaten! LOL Despite all the Drama at the end of the night, I was having a fun time! Didn't I look like I was? Didn't I look Happy, even if just for a moment? hahahaha
For some reason I keep ending up @ Vamp'd on Thurs., hanging out with my 2 favorite waitresses ever, Ashley & Josette, checking out the Board of Fare at Local Band Thursday Nights. SOMEBODY told the Management there that I could get the word out about getting Local Punk Band night going on there instead, so I mentioned that I would let people out there know that if you're in a Punk Band and would like to play @ Vamp'd on Thurs. nights for $50 and some drink tickets, contact me by clicking here and I'll send you the guys cell phone number. Of course, you could probably go down there and talk to the people yourself, but that would require initiative, now wouldn't it?
Speaking of new places for bands to play, ya know Danny, the Prince of Pinche Drummers who plays for Pigasus, has a regular job that involves slinging suds down @ the Bikini Bar on Spring Mountain, located where the old Sand Dollar Blues bar used to be. He's got the hip Rock and Roll crowd hanging out down there being cool, and he's gonna start booking bands to play there as well so again, if you're in a band and you're looking to have more then 2 or 3 options as far as places to play go, then hit up his Facebook page by clicking here and talk to him about bringing down DA ROCK! to the Bikini Bar. :-)
The sun is coming up, so I should probably get to sleep. I got band practice with S.F.T. later on today, because I'm helping them out with their lack of drummer thing since their old drummer just moved away. I'm playing the Agnostic Front gig with them, so if you'd like to come out and see us play well gee, that would be swell! LOL Pretty quiet and easy weekend coming up. Green Jelly is playing with The Vermin @ Vamp'd on Friday, then Surrounded By Thieves and the Naked City Romeos are playing out in Hendertucky on Saturday, and the Legendary Diamondhead are playing @ the Bunkhouse on Sunday. See? Nice and easy weekend. Somewhere along the way the liver abuse has got to end, right? Right? ;-)
