"Hey, how did you hear about this show?"
"Oh, I read about it on this website called 138."
Random conversation #247, 312 and 341 heard at the Beauty Bar:
"I didn't even know the Bronx were playing until I read about it on your website!"
hee hee hee
Yeah, I think I've found my niche with the website. Gig information. I know lots of people get info about gigs from here, because they tell me so, or they copy my misinformation and misspellings word for word and put them up on their Myspace pages. **coughcoughlasvegaspunkshowlist** hahahaha Who cares? As long as the message is getting out there, that's all that matters.
Yeah, taking a little break from playing my beloved video game, recovering from a rowdy night of gigging about town. That Outbreak / Hour Of The Wolf / Smartbomb / Murder Majesty / Start! gig was a pretty sweet way to start the night. Smartbomb were sooooooooooo fucking good. Hour Of The Wolf was a bit disappointing, because they had this wimpy drummer playing behind them, taking away a lot from the power of the music, and they seemed a bit off for some reason, I dunno. I wasn't the only one who noticed that either. It was funny when they were onstage telling the story of how Joe The Fireman had his leg broken when they played Vegas the last time @ East Side Joe's, and how Eastside Joe didn't want him calling an ambulance to the place, and how nobody would give him a ride to the hospital either, so Joe The Fireman had to hobble his ass away from Eastside Joe's to call an ambulance for himself somewhere down the street... hahahaha Poor guy! Outbreak were fucking fantastic and I got a kick in the eye from an errant stage diver for my trouble and stupidity in standing right near the front of the stage. Oh well. It was worth it. They were really fucking good. Piss poor turnout though. Could it have been from a lack of promotion, perhaps? Yeah, probably. Highlight of the night had to be when we were standing around talking about the upcoming Queers gig @ the Divebar, when someone asked who was opening, and someone else said Murder Majesty, and then Hank!, in a loud ass voice goes "MURDER MAJESTY! FUCK THOSE GUYS! THEY OPEN ALL..." and quickly trailed off at the end because Sean from Murder Majesty was standing 5 feet behind him! hhahahahaahaha Hank! strikes again! Fun times @ the Box Office. It was great that Sal was being called the Old Guy and not me for once! ;-)
After that gig everybody and their Mom was @ the Beauty Bar to see The Bronx playing for free. I love running into people who I talk to all the time on Facebook and having them completely ignore me when I try to talk to them in real life! LOL Mariachi El Bronx were disgustingly horrible, and to see all the Caucasions getting all romantic to the lame ass tunes being played was gloriously entertaining. You would of thought it was a high school dance or something! LOL The band needed a tuba player and some Spanish cat calls to make the sham more believable though. Seriously. Lame. As. Fuck. I almost left it was so terrible. All was forgiven about an hour later when the Bronx proper took the stage. Intensity level went through the roof from the first note played onwards, and as one of the bodies being pummelled up front against the low slung stage, I again caught a kick to the eye - same eye, same situation - an errant stage diver. I stood in the back after that and watched the action from the rear. My Momma didn't raise no fool! LOL The Bronx were ridiculously awesome, and although I'm not that big of a fan of theirs, they did play my favorite song by them, Shitty Future, so I'm happy I was there. Why weren't you there? Something better going on? No matter the case, if you weren't there, you missed out big time! Pictures are already posted. Show Review might be forthcoming, who knows?
OK. Back to my video games. There's a cool gig going on tonight with Megaton Leviathon and Dead Neon happening @ the LVCS tonight. If you're in the mood to have your face grinded off and to have your ears blownn out to utter uselessness, then you should try to stop by and be prepared to be annhilated. That band Bad Taste are playing the Sanctuary tonight too, and I'd go, but I'm kind of in recovery mode. Doesn't mean you shouldn't go though. :-)
