I would love to tell you that the reason why I missed out on the Negative Approach gig @ the LVCS last night was because I refuse to give any money or support in any way to that piece of shit child raping pedophile who's the front person for the Pedophilties (He's neither a Singer or a Man, and I refuse to call him either), but the truth of the matter is, that I just didn't feel like going. I was given the option of either going to a crappy venue Downtown that I hate, standing around through 7 bands that I've seen many times before, or bands I don't even like, just to see the 1 band I know is going to blow doors, or, I could stay home and have sexy time with my girlfriend - my of age girlfriend! hahaha The choice, for me, was obviously easy... LOL Yeah, I know how amazing Negative Approach is, I've seen 'em a few times before, but again, don't like the Pedophilties, M.D.C. has a shitty ass drummer now, one of the shittiest one's I've ever seen them with, and they're pretty much just phoning in their sets at this point, so fuck 'em. And I can see Brutal Resistance and Unfair Fight anywhere and anytime. Oh yeah, forgot that I.D.F.I. weaseled their way on the bill as well. Ugh. If you're not on the flyer, don't play the gig. Your Ego will survive... believe me. Anyways, the point of all this was to tell you that the reason why I didn't go to the Negative Approach gig was because I decided to stay in and enjoy the evening with my girlfriend. Bite me. I didn't miss out on shit... you guys all missed out on seeing those bands when they were amazing, 30 years or so ago. You thought Reagan Youth was godhead @ the Dive a few weeks ago? Negative Approach blow your mind last night @ the LVCS? Well, if any of that was true, what would your feeble little brain of thought if you saw those bands in their prime in the early 80's like I did... heh heh
The reason why all this 'Jorge from the Pedophilties is a pedophile rapist' talk has come to surface again is because of THIS blog post, which you can read by clicking here. From personal experiences, I can tell you that the claims made by this girl are true (as are the claims of other underage girls he's done this to before I'd be willing to bet), because I've seen that piece of shit do some pretty questionable things with 13 year old girls before, giving them beers, taking them back to the van to 'talk', whatever, but this whole 'trial by social media' thing is interesting to watch. The actions of those that defend him and the band are pathetic and laughable, and it's almost like talking to people who believe that the Holocaust never happened. There's no convincing them otherwise, and they are staunch and unmovable in their beliefs. Oh well. None of this matters anyways, because the Poseurs who like this band will still continue to support the Insane Clown Posse of Punx, and people who don't will continue not to do so. The stories blowing up everywhere, with the spotlight fully on the scumbag who deserves to feel the heat. I hope some sort of justice is served. He's had it coming for a long, long time.
Tonight at the Double Clown, it's a Celebration, Bitches, for the long awaited record release party for The People's Whiskey. <3 I had this whole write up thing done about how I got into the band and went out of my way to tell people about them, to check them out when they gig, blah blah blah, but I didn't wanna take anything away from the band and their spectacular music that's now being thrust upon the unsuspecting ears of the Music world. I don't think it's that big of a secret to us Locals though, because Cody has been sharing the songs on his MP3 player and bragging about them for months now, but it's still gonna be cool to see all the bands hard work come to fruition, and the accolades that are forthcoming are all well deserved and hopefully plentiful. You know my old adage - if it was anyplace else but here, I would go to it - but in this case, it hurts a lot not to be able to be there. Oh well. I'll go console myself with the many live recordings I have of the band playing at various shitty bars around town, and you go to this shitty bar tonight and Congratulate The People's Whiskey on their record release, and buy them a shot or two or twelve to make things interesting when they play... heh heh.
