If I was staying in town, I'd be be checking out some of the kick ass gigs happening this weekend. That Riverboat Gamblers / Deadhand / Holding On To Sound / Dead To Me gig @ the Bunkhouse tonight is going to be AMAZING! I plan on being ballz deep in a cleansing, hallucinogenic world of my own accord at about the same time the gig is happening, so drink a few for me, will ya? Saturday I'd have to be at that Swenson St. 4th of July on Labor Day party with the Apocalyptics and the Seriouslys and the Scoundrels, and then afterwards I'd be avoiding that D.U.I. check point that's gonna be on Tropicana / Paradise to head downtown to see Pigasus and the Tinglerz playing with Flexx Bronco @ the Beauty Bar. Then if I wasn't in jail the next day, I'd be standing around with all of the other Poseurs @ Yayo Taco for that Bloody Phoenix / Alarido / Equal Opportunity Destroyer / Die Laughing gig, and then once that was over I'd head to Meathead's to see the Quitters with Confused Little Girl, who are all the way from Orlando, FLA. But I mean, shit, there's other gigs happening too, like Deadhand & The Akashic Record @ Hypnotic on Sat., or even that gig in Pahrump with Reel Big Fish / Guilty By Association (who's playing drums???) / Haleamano and Tuesday After School on Sunday. When it rains it pours with Gigs here in Las Vegas. Either they're all happening at the same time on the same day, or they're not happening at all. Phooey. If I was in town this weekend, I'd have a lot of deciding to do.
But I'm not. Instead, I'll be here on Friday...
Yup! Back Home amongst the trees and more drunk than any man should ever be, I will be lost in a fog of Singing, Dancing, Drinking, Drugging and Eating until my face falls off permanently stuck in an Idiot Grin. I'm hoping I live to tell the tale but if I don't, that's cool too. I'm at peace with it. :-) Pow Wow's RULE!!
Oh, but I will be tearing myself away on Saturday to be at this gig in La Mirada. It's Youth Gone Mad / The Backdoor Preachers / Death On The Radio and the Blabber Mouths. I have no idea about any of the other bands but it really doesn't matter. It's going to be interesting. I get to see some dear old Friends, jam on some Tunes, and most importantly, support a really worthwhile cause. If you're in the area, stop on by! I would Love to see you...
Yeah, I can't wait to feel the Love! L-U-V! Crash out in Whittier, grab some Pizzamania for the road and then it's back to the Rez for the remainder of the Pow Wow. Sunday night is the best night, because that's when they award all the prize money to the winner's of all the different dancing competitions, so you see some amazing footwork going on out there, and then the 49 afterwords is always the best, because most people split and can't hang and only the true Hardcore can make it through that. Again, if you're in the San Diego area and wish to feel threatened by standing amongst a bunch of Mad, Drunken Indians just looking for a reason to do anything that includes Violence, then please stop by and hang out with me. I'll be the Drunk Punk passed out in the Tree. Seriously.
Everything's updated. I added the Pictures of that band The Lips that I mentioned in my last post, and by the time I go Live with this posting I'll probably have finished those Pictures I have of The People's Whiskey, so look for that somewhere on here. I got all sorts of shit to put up here, like Videos, a whole shitload of Music Reviews, and a bunch more Pictures, but I just don't got the time. I did the math while chatting up some Bird recently, and I told her I was in 6 bands, but in reality it's 8 - 4 that are actively gigging, and 4 that are just sort-of Projects. The rehearsal schedule is maddening, to say the least. I don't know how I got into this position, and I'm not sure if it's the best thing for me to be doing, but you know what? I'm having fun, and in the long run, that's all that matters. I'm gonna be on Vacation for a bit, obviously, but I'll be back soon. Maybe. Hopefully... heh heh Have a Great Weekend! :-)
