Art Art Art!! It's First Friday mañana, which means there's lots to do mucking about in the Art scene here in Vegas, what there is of it anyways. I've got 2 near and dear Friends having exhibits of their Art going on tomorrow, and I wanna bring them both to your attention. First off there's Raf, ex-American Buckshot guitarist and gnar skateboard shredder and doggy babysitter extraordinaire, putting some of his artwork up as part of that Bring The Noise group show going on @ 916 Studios, so stop by there if you're in the area, and then there's another ex-band mate of mine, Dan, currently the Vokillist of Unfair Fight and one of the nicest dudes I've ever met, he's having an exhibit at the Josephine Skaught hair salon, right next to the Artifice, so again, if you're in the area for First Friday festivities, stop by and check out their incredible artwork. They're both some talented motherfuckers and worthy of all your support. Go.
Also, Congratulations to mi compadres Jamie Jackson and Rob Ruckus for signing some big to do record contracts this week. I'm not sure just what that entails nowadays but still, it's a big deal and again, Congrats to both of ya old bastards! Let the weekly stipends and apartments in LES NYC be in your immediate future like they were after I signed my first record contract way, Way, WAAAAY back in the daze! LOL And about the scuttlebutt that arose because of these signings, I say to you both to ignore it and let the Haters hate. Pettiness and Jealousy is a motherfucker, believe me, I know. ;-) Let the shit talkers say whatever, because they'll never say it to your face and besides, it's only the Internet, which has nothing to do with the real world, right? Right!
Another thing I forgot to mention in passing is this very notable and worthy gig for an excellent cause going down this Saturday, so if you're not at the gig @ the Bikini Bar you should definitely be in attendance at this little get together going down at the Cheyenne Saloon. Yeah, yeah, I know... let it go. It's a benefit show for a little girls fight against cancer, because fighting cancer is majorly expensive, and the show is appropriately named 'Fuck Cancer'. That sentiment is both near and dear to my heart, and something I can definitely get behind 100%. Those of you who know me personally know why that is. But anyways, there's some good people involved with supporting this, and there's some good bands playing too, like Rule Of Thumb, Last Rites, Roid Rage and a few other bands I know nothing about, and all these bands are playing to help out with a little girls fight against cancer, so if you're in the area you should stop by and support a good cause and check out some cool bands. Who knows, you may even make a friend while you're there, or have an friend of your ex monitoring your every move and texting all the juicy details to your ex... heh heh heh Gawd I love this city. :-)
