Do I have the ability to see the future or something, or do I just read about shit and then forget about it and then laugh when people react to the forgotten news days later? LOL I could of sworn that I read about the whole OMD 21 and over "controversy" a while ago, but the way the "real" Punx are reacting to it this week, you'd think they just announced it yesterday. I guess real patch sporting Punx don't do the Internet, unless it's the BYO Punk Rock Posing Facebook page. ;-) Yeah, the whole buzz about OMD turning it's back on the All Ages Punk Rock scene here in Vegas is amusing from the outside. It wasn't us! We didn't want to! The County made us do it! ha ha ha ha Laughable. You kids didn't really believe that the venue was going to stay all ages, did you? Did you guys really swallow that tripe about how OMD was NEVER going to be a 21 and over venue, and that they would NEVER turn their back on the all ages scene? Did you believe that? Really? Well, for those of us who aren't transplants, those of us who have been involved in the Las Vegas Local Music Scene for more than a few years now, for those of us who still have half a brain left, well, we pretty much knew that it wasn't going to stay All Ages, no matter what they were saying. Vegas doesn't want it. No money to be made from it. The rules against dance permits, which date back to the 1960's, make sure kids have nothing to do here. Nothing legal, anyways. Vegas is a 'grown up" town, so grow up, cash in, and be a part of the "normal" world. Everybody does it. It's the "normal", grown up thing to do. Keep the All Ages scene underground. House parties are where it's at. You're over 30 and at an all ages, Punk Rock house party, there might be something wrong with you... LOL Dealing with kids is a pain in the ass, a very unappreciated pain in the ass. Believe me, I know. That's why I don't do it now. BTW, has The Artistic Armory opened back up yet?
The Wisest man I ever met, wrote this, and it's 100% true. Tested by research even. Even he did it, because apparently that's what you do when you grow up and out. Be a Leader, not a Follower. Punk Rock Warlord.
He who fucks Nuns, will later join the Church.
Learn it. Live it. Love it.
