What a fantastic weekend. Friday night at the Copa was for the girlfriends. <3
The only thing I have to say about yesterday's Raiders game can be found here: Fire Greg Knapp Facebook page. What a fucking farce.
Saturday night's Unfair Fight EP release show was a huge success. A nice assemblage of Local talent were in attendance to observe the band just slay everyone in the place with one mighty swoop of their musical axes, with Liz punctuating the perfect ending to their set by smashing her pink bass into pieces on the concrete floor, but not before she smashed up a huge TV set that was set up directly in front of the band. It was stenciled with some Punk Rock sloganeering, and the guys in the band were using it as a pulpit of sorts to elevate themselves and to better reach the crowd. Unfair Fight had the crowd eating out of the palms of their hands from the first note on, and at one point in their set they had the cutest, pull-at-you-heart-strings-adorable moment of little kids that were like 10 and under, and they were circle pitting screaming their heads off and causing havoc, all with tremendous smiles on their faces. I would of loved to have gotten a photo of it, but my camera crapped out a few songs into their set, but that was OK because it allowed me to just lay back and enjoy the music, and man did they sound great! Liz is a perfect fit and the band was playing a shitload of new material, starting off their set with all 3 songs from their brand new release called We Are The Dead. They also did some covers, and I'm not sure but I think I heard them play some Give 'Em Hell songs - Nice! :-) It was an amazing set from Unfair Fight and if you weren't there you blew it big time. Show Review to follow forthwith.
Everything is updated and new stuff added. Karl Bakla wrote a Show Review for the Cobra Skulls, Holding Onto Sound, The People's Whiskey and The Seriouslys gig @ the Bunkhouse last week, and you can click here to check that out. I also just added those Pictures I took of Battle Born playing Favorite's a few weeks back, and you can click here to check those out. Rise Against and The Gaslight Anthem are playing tonight. Look for them to be doing an acoustic set soon on that other 'Punk' website. ;-) Big Red has a gig going on tomorrow night @ Yayo Taco featuring Inter Arma (click here for their Facebook page), Lotus, Toxic Artillery and Morbid Faith, so if you're looking for something to do on Tuesday check that shit out. Or go Downtown and be a Hipster Dooshbag, what do I care? On Weds. The Swamp Gospel is playing with the Johnson Creek Stranglers @ the Bikini Bar, so I might go check that out, since it's right down the street from me. And then, of course, on Saturday, it's the big Guttermouth, Queers, Guilty By Association, Surrounded By Thieves, Happy Campers, Hard Pipe Hitters, Grocery Store Rejects and Lambs To Lions gig @ the Bunkhouse. 3 of those bands don't belong on that bill, and I'll leave it up to you to figure out which ones they are. ;-) Monica and I will be in attendance at that gig, looking to make our ex's feel awkward by our very presence there so please, if any of you psycho ex's see us there, please entertain the notion of coming up to either one of us and trying to engage in an exchange of witty barbs because you know we both love that oh so very much! hahaha Yeah, it's gonna be a good week...
