Speaking of drunken acts of buffoonery, the High Rollers weekend is upon us, with everyone putting on their Fred Perry's and Harrington's and turning into an instant working class Skinhead - Oi! Oi! LOL Don we now our ghey apparel... ha ha ha There's plenty of events happening around the downtown area, like scooter rally's and rides, and 60's Soul dance parties with loads of DJ's, and a few bands playing, like The Champions, from San Francisco, who my friends up there say should not be missed, and a Jam cover band called All Mod Cons that I think I saw at one of the other scooter rally's before. Hmmmmm.... Interesting.
Yayo Taco is closing. They can't pay a $700 fine, which doesn't say much for the success of their business. The LVRJ is saying the fine is paid, but the restaurant needs to be brought up to health code standards, which the Owner is refusing to do, because of some self implied persecution complex from the Clark County Health Dept. He says he doesn't have to, the County says he does. Whatever. There's a benefit gig going down there tonight, featuring Holding On To Sound, Caravels, and some other hand picked jewels of the All Ages scene, so if you're in the area, drop off a couple of bucks and help raise some dough to help pay for... something? All the info on the gig can be found here.
