Observations from the show Friday Oct. 26, 2012 at Sand Dollar, formerly the Bikini Bar. In fact I refuse to call it the Bikini Bar as my own personal vendetta against their tease of a concept. Bartenders in bikinis - how dare they get my hopes up for nothing!
What is going thru Punkers minds when they dress up for Halloween where they dress MORE Punk, so what are they the rest of the year? Face paint is weird especially when you're having a serious conversation and you can’t tell their facial expression. Horror Business, it may have been a bad idea to challenge them to a Misfits song contest on the mic during our set, saying the loser buys the shots. I bought them Jäger. I was excited to see a Misfits cover band. Before the show I looked them up on Facebook only to find many other Misfits cover bands by the same name. Still haven’t found the Las Vegas Horror Business, Why cant you guys put Vegas in the name or something.
Similarly I tried to look up the Facebook page for another band performing in this show The Nasty. Apparently they are too cool to have a FB which is really biting them in the ass because there is another band named The Nasty from the East Coast who I am friends with now on Facebook. The Nasty tries to play and their bass rig takes a shit before they even sound check. Then during the show one of the guitar amps goes tits up which no one predicted would have any problems. - the amp head is 2/3rds wrapped in packing tape. So they play and then go change out of their dresses.
We play and crush the set save for 4 song I (Dean Pascucci) epically fucked up and you guessed it one of those epic fuck ups was a Misfits song. This epic fuck was not missed by one of the girlfriends of Horror Business who proceeded to remind me I owe her mans band shots for the rest of the night.
Vegascendents KILLED even their mistakes were professional, they are the whole package.
So Horror Business plays. The singer of The Nasty, now wearing mens clothes, posts up at the foot of the stage and is singing along with the Misfits songs (obviously a big fan as evidenced by his Crimson Ghost tattoo and the verbosity with which he was singing). Horror Business starts the next song, the singer of The Nasty grabs a mic from the stage and starts singing which culminates in a kind of slap fight, kind of tug o war and the mic stand nor my eyes will never be the same.
