We had the Sun. afternoon off and spent it doing the unusual tourist thing of just driving around looking stupid, when we stumbled upon Glenwood Springs, where my Hero Doc Holliday is supposedly buried. We found the place after a bit of a search (it's in a rich neighborhood at the base of the Williams Fork Mountains) and trekked a half a mile up this steep ass hill to get to the cemetery where the Legendary Gunfighter is resting somewhere. We payed our respects to the Man and I threw up near the grave marker. It seemed appropriate. ;-) We spent the rest of the afternoon @ Doc Holliday's Saloon, where we ate and drank and gambled like the tourists we are. We had to drag ourselves away from the place, but a few hours later in Denver, all was forgotten. The place we played that night, called the Lion's Lair, was a total Punk Rock dive bar, where the bartender Michelle was an old Vegas person who just got us hammered all night long gratis of all charges. Thank you ever so much dear! XOXO The bands we played with, Salt and Murder Hat, were exceptional, with Salt mining a heavy Grunge vibe and Murder Hat just killing it by playing everything from Thrash to Ska, and whatever they wanted to in between. Both bands annihilated the place, and it was fun playing the gig with them. You can go to Salt's Facebook page by clicking here, and you can go to Murder Hat's Facebook page by clicking here. They're both great bands full of super nice guys. Look forward to seeing them play here in Vegas sometime soon (I hope). The drive home on Monday was sweet, taking our time and hitting up some scenic viewpoints along the way. We saw the Oscar Meyer weinermobile. I spent way too much money in Utah's Beaver. The Comedy channels on satellite radio made the time go by much quicker. It was a great weekend with some good friends, full of fun times and lots and lots of shenanigans. Lots of Pictures to come.
Notice how I didn't mention the band I played the gigs with. Pretty cool, right? It's something I feel I have to do now because I don't wanna hear the BS that goes when one decides to exercise their right to air an opinion in public. Although the hubbub has died down majorly, I'm still getting emails from bitter ex-girlfriends and band mates who think they're slick and cool and anonymous. Think again people. You're fooling no one, and your antics aren't cute. You're not that slick. Seriously. I've got a busy week ahead of me, that's for sure. Lots of photos to edit and Gig info to add the the website. Anyone remember Punk Rock Bowling? The gig at the Aruba Hotel? Uh huh, me either. Yeah, I added the photos of D.I., Kids On Fire and Guilty by Association to the website, and you can click here for the D.I. photos, and here for the Kids On Fire pix, and here for the Guilty By Association photos. Thanks to Skateboard Bob for taking the GBA pictures. Everything is sort of updated. I got to get my ass to work.
