I think half the fun of me going out in public here in Vegas is just the awkwardness I cause when running into people who talked real brave behind the keyboard and then have to deal with me face to face in a much more sober state of mind. 😎 The neckbeard motherfucker who I saw at the Bunkhouse when the Vegascendents played there last Thursday with some Beastie Boys tribute band for some private golf party thing was the best. He said he was going to "kick my fat Mexican ass" the next time he saw me, so I made it a point to keep walking past him as he sat at the bar but he apparently didn't see me and I escaped the night unscathed. Whew! ha ha ha And the Fremont Country Club was full of the same on Saturday for the Punk Rock Flea Market thing the Vegascendents were playing, a handful of people who wished ill will on me over the Internet and vowed to "get me" the next time they saw me but then just acted blind deaf and dumb or something when they actually saw me, I dunno... lol Man, I'm lucky I'm so invisible and unnoticeable because otherwise I'd probably be in traction at the hospital or something... hee hee hee 2018. You gotta love it. Everybody talks the talk, nobody walks the walk, or maybe it's a convenient Las Vegas Alzheimer's disease or something... 🤣🤣🤣
hahahaha yeah, I had a blast hanging out playing gigs in Vegas this weekend. That private party thing on Thursday was pretty interesting. I don't think it was really our crowd per se, but the people who were there that were into us were REALLY into us... ha ha ha And that Beastie Boys tribute thing was interesting. Standing outside listening it sounded just like them, but watching them was a bit different... the voices didn't match... heh The Punk Rock Flea Market was fun. Bunch of Local artists and charlatans selling their wares and goods, which was cool I guess. I bought nothing, and I had a wallet full of cash ready to go! Ugh! Oh well. I ended up spending my cash at Bomb Tacos before the gig. 😉While at the PRFM I spent most of my time at the bar playing catch up with a couple of people I haven't seen in years: Karl Bakla., who used to write for this website before he started drawing dicks for the hipsters, and N.J. Pete, freshly back from a trip to Cuba if you can believe that, and talking to new friends like Veronica and the guy who's car burned down in 30 seconds, while he was driving it on the freeway! They were there to see the Vegascendents, and we all stood around chatting while The Pluralses were playing. Either I wasn't feeling it or they were kind of boring. Maybe some of that shittiness from the band they put a split out with is rubbing off on them... heh Mediocrity Sells! Sheiks Of Neptune played for what seemed like FOREVER!! Their Metal / Surf / Sci-Fi sound was tailor made for an event like this, and the crowd of Punx and Miscreants ate it up. Then the Vegascendents played and that was pretty much it. Event over. I think we sounded good, less mistakes than the previous set we played, and I know Carlos Lean 13 loved it, because I could see his mohawk circling around in the pit like a sharks fin... 😂😂😂 I don't know what everyone else did after the gig, but I headed straight home to get back to playing Red Dead Redemption 2, which is currently ruling and ruining my life... ha ha ha Anyone know where to sell the legendary bear pelt at? The regular furriers won't take it, and I don't know what the fuck to do with it...
I've seen The Clash play a few times. Same with the Ramones. I'm old, it happens. Never saw them play together though. Never even heard of it happening to be quite honest. To have seen The Clash and the Ramones play together on the same stage in 1988 must have been the thrill of a lifetime. To have only been 7 or 8 years old when it happened meant you had the coolest parents in the world, that's for sure! 🤣🤣🤣 Oh Leslie Ventura, you talentless ass kiss you! Please learn to fact check. I love Josh Coutts and everything he does for the love of doing it but I'm pretty sure those 2 legendary bands never shared a stage or played a gig together. Just saying. Other than that, here's a great fluff piece on one of the most stand up honest guys in the scene today. Give it a read. 👍🏽
