If you say it, mean it, and if you say it, do it.
Anyways, yeah, it was THAT kind of weekend. I had an interesting chat with Alan from Squid Hat Records, which was enlightening, to say the least. He stopped by the Zia Records thing that Guilty By Association was playing, which, by the way, was major fun, and Thanx to everyone who came out to that, BTW. My posse was in full effect, and my body was well guarded. ;-) Both Local compilations that were released that day, the Desert Rats With Baseball Bats II, and the You Heard Us Back When Vol. 8, sold out, so if you didn't get one, you missed out. Snooze you lose. Despite all the Drama last night, I did watch The Mapes play an amazing set of Punk Rockery that should stand as an inspiration to every Local band gigging around today. Make your gawd damn gig an event. Write good songs. Practice them to perfection. Don't be boring on stage. Give the people something to come out for. I mean, when you walked into the Dive and saw that everything near the stage was covered in plastic wrap, you knew this was going to be a memorable gig! LOL Yeah, the Mapes were great, and that band The Pluralses were really fucking good too! Did I hear them singing a song about a cocaine submarine?? hahaha I wish I wasn't dealing with the Drama all night instead of checking out the bands... phooey!
