Speaking of downtown Vegas, the LVCS is a pretty damn cool place. When I played there with Infestshit many moons ago, it was just a big empty space with nothing in it, and now it's got bars, bathrooms, a kick ass stage with a sound system that can't go over 97 decibels for some Legal reason and some cool UFO shape lighting rig above the stage, complete with a dry ice machine floating around somewhere around the back. Oh, and did I mention that the place has a mechanical bull? LOL Yeah, we were all gonna ride the bull at one time but forgot about it because we were too busy drinking to remember to give it a go. well, that's my story anyways and I'm sticking to it! LOL Yeah, the LVCS is a cool place to hang out and see some bands play on an actual stage with a killer PA in a very chillaxing environment. This place comes highly recommended. If you know where the free parking is downtown then you got nothing to bitch about. Great stuff coming up too. That Mapes / Maxies / No Bunny gig there next week is gonna be pretty fucking great. Same with that Dead Lazlo's Place / Symbol Six / Social Task gig happening there @ the end of the month. The LVCS represents the next step in Roxie's quest for world domination, and I wish her the best of Luck with it. Can't wait to see how this ride's gonna end. :-)
Hey! Did you hear that? That sound of a collective of Norwegian music fans (and maybe a few million others worldwide) shooting themselves in the head after hearing that Hank had quit Turbonegro. Yeah, Scientology claims another one. Apparently, Hank's latest trip into rehab convinced him to quit the band, a band that he says he had no friends in. Boo fucking hoo. Suck it up, collect your check and STFU. The last, oh, dare I say, 3 Turbonegro albums sucked ass, and the band that had started out as a parody and became a revolution went full circle and became a parody once again. Going through the motions. If you saw any of the last Turbonegro outings then you know what I'm talking about. Fun, but never all that, like it used to be. Anyways, another great one bites the dust. Maybe the band will consider our American Hank to replace their Norwegian Hank, like a spy swap or something. I think it could work.
It was Senor N.J. Pete's birthday last Sat. (Yaaayy!) and he celebrated it at the Double Down (Booooooooooo!) where his band Unfair Fight played that night. Many many many happy returns to ya Sir! I am in debt to you for at least a few rounds of something good to drink. Me, you and George - Let's do it! Unfair Fight is also playing the Total Gay Ass gig @ 702 Skatepark with the Hard Pipe Hitters, so I might have to write them off for a bit, at least Live anyways, or at least until they stop playing diseased cesspools or lame ass gigs with douche bag poseur bands. This is not gonna be an ongoing thing, is it? I thought you guys were gonna be one of the Local bands here with Standards, Morals and Beliefs? I'm worried... heh heh
Spain won the World Cup, and guess what - Nobody cared. A game that is a Religion else where in the world barely makes a ripple in anything over here. Blind Patriotism? Yuck. The faux enthusiasm some of you Team America fans exhibited during the Cup was a bit embarrassing, to say the least. Any excuse to hang out in a bar and get drunk, right? hee hee hee Well, the good thing is, I won't have to see or hear about it for another 4 years.
Who is Lebron James and why should I give a fuck. Is it Hockey season yet? LOL I don't care about Basketball, don't care about Cleveland, don't care about Miami, and I especially don't care about where Lebron James is going to play this year. Who gives a fuck? Who cares?
Speaking of things that nobody cares about, the Arts District blew up yesterday. A couple of bums got injured, because they're the only ones who frequent the area. LOL Give it up Vegas. You ain't gonna establish an Arts district here in this Anti-Creativity cesspool we all call home. The City and their Government don't want it here. It's bad for business. It keeps people away from the Casinos. And besides, even if you did, it would just get gentrified by rich yuppie fucks who would then move in and take over, raising property values and rent prices through the roof, and then you'll be bitching about how cool the Arts District used to be while you're looking for a new place to live. Happened in NY, SF, LA, etc. When will you learn? Me personally, I think it's Hipster Sabotage. I think the people from the Attic blew up the Opportunity Village in order to eliminate their direct (as in across the street) competition. Just a thought.
Man, I've been blabbering here for a bit. I'm missing out on Stern, so I'm gonna go. I finally beat Red Dead Redemption the other day, so hopefully I can start catching up on the stuff I've been slacking on. New stuff everywhere. If you don't find it, just ask. I'm not as big of an asshole as you might think I am. Oh wait, I forgot... hahaha The King and the Prince of Vegas drummers are going to San Jose next year to watch our Hockey teams fight to the Death like rabid dogs - anyone else down for a Punk Rock Hockey weekend in the Bay area? <3
