Last nights gig was pretty fun. The only people in attendance were pretty much the Bands playing and drunken Locals with nothing better to do. No one was banned for tailgating in the parking lot, because everyone was doing it, as usual. The smell inside that place is nauseating. How do you people put up with it? The bathroom that was inside C.B.G.B.'s smelled better than the Double Clown does. When will the dooshbag that owns that place invest a few bucks to get proper ventilation in there? He spends enough on trendy art pieces and publishing books no one buys or reads to have that place renovated 3 times over. Whatever. We played first, pretty much for AJ and Heather's enjoyment only, but we sold some CD's after the gig, so I guess people liked us and that we did OK. We played a Descendents cover for some reason, (yeah right), and Homeless Mike seemed to really, really like it... LOL Yeah, Homeless Mike, he of the Legendary shit talking escapades on the Interwebz and the pilfering of musical equipment that doesn't belong to him, plays in No One Listens, a new band gigging around town as of late, and at first I was pissed off about sharing a stage with that slime ball, but then I just said fuck it - play the gig, so we did, and I had fun, so yeah. It was a cool way to spend a Friday night, standing around with your Friends in a parking lot, pounding energy drinks and bro-ing down, waiting to play some music. :-)
Tonight's the big shindig for the Huntridge Theater. I'm actually against the cause of saving the building, but I'm going to support my Friends who are playing the gig, and to be trendy and eat from a food truck while standing around in a parking lot. I hear it's the thing to do when you're Downtown. Why sit down at a table and be comfortable? Eat off a paper plate and be uncomfortable! It's sooooo cutting edge and unconventional! No wonder everyone's becoming a Hipster. What's next? Llama tattoos for all? LOL
