I'm sorry, but I had to. It was like I felt compelled to do it, like something deep inside of me was just yearning to break out and pontificate upon this travesty that's being thrust upon my Friends and Family, and the sad part is, some of them are actually getting into it. They're actually HYPED on it, which just boggles my mind. I mean, really? REALLY??? Am I that far out of the loop, or are all of you just that stupid? Maybe a little of both?
Wowsers. I am beyond disappointed in this. They better hope that the late night club shows are interesting, because if not, then I really got no reason to be anywhere near this stink fest. Lemme break this down for you band by band, to better illustrate what a farcical gathering of Poseurs this thing is going to be - just based on these "headliners", or "West Coast Heavy Hitters" as the Punk Rock Bowling website is billing them as. Le Sigh. Fucking dooshbags, and BTW, that chick on the poster looks totally 'Punk Rock', doesn't she?
My hatred for this band is Legendary, because, let's face it, they suck big wet donkey balls and ask for seconds when they do. Biggest bunch of jokes I've ever had the displeasure of seeing play live, and their songs are just terrible. There's just nothing there and Tim's pronounced farcical English accent is nauseating. Rancid is about as Punk Rock as Hot Topic is. Enough said.
They just played here like last month, so for them to be headlining one of the days is a bit of a slap in the face to their fans here. I'm not even sure that HOB gig was sold out either. It's just a bit of lazy booking that they're even on the bill. Not to mention that they've been running on fumes for years, and that the schtick has been stale and old for years now. Years.
Even if you ignore the fact that they're currently gigging around with a new singer that sucks, these guys have no business being on here. I've never understood what anyone likes about this band, and the Braah's that do like this band make me stay away from them even more. I never liked Jocks. :-) But even when they had their original lead singer, they fucking sucked anus, and with this new guy they're parading around, I'm sure they've only gotten shitty and more sucky, if that's at all possible. Bro-Core invades Punk Rock Bowling and all of you won't give a shit, because you all like it. Sing loud when they play Bro Anthem dooshbag. Yeah, I'm talking to you.
Oh man, this one, wowsers. These fucking Rockstar pieces of shit got chased out of town with their pussy ass tiny English puds tucked firmly between their clown faced painted ass cheeks after what they tried to pull on Roxie and the LVCS. Anyone remember that? Probably not, and it doesn't matter. Punk Rock Bowling feeds on the ignorant few like you. Nostalgia for Monetary Gains. You're all gonna be there dancing along to Viva La Revolution, acting like you're so original and hardcore and whatnot when really, you're just a fool, a fucking sheep in the crowd. This band is not worth supporting and should be loudly Booooo'd and pelted with feces when they take the stage. Fuck them. Do you remember the last time the Adicks played here in Vegas? I do! It was at Diablo's. There was like 20 people there. Pathetic. And now they're one of the headliners, sneaking back in to play Vegas through a little loophole, a favor from a friend, acting like everything's cool and like they are loved here. Fuck that, and Fuck them. What a fucking farce. Fuck off Wankers!
I really got no beef with the Briefs. Heroin's a Hell of a Drug, ya know? I mean, if you've never seen the Dickies, 999 or the Devil Dogs before, then I guess I could see why you like them. Unoriginal. The Briefs are just a yawn inducing snooze fest to me. I saw them play a Punk Rock Bowling awards ceremony opening up for Manic Hispanic @ Pinky's many, many moons ago, and was just nonplussed while watching them. I guess the biggest thing with them being announced on here is the fact that the Briefs are being put onto the same level as NOFX and Rancid when they clearly are not. They're not very good, and they never were. Definitely nothing to be hyped about.
So yeah. If these are the best bands that are going to be playing Punk Rock Bowling, then count me out! I'm gonna stay as far as fuck away from it as I possibly can. There's a reason why Motörhead has never played Punk Rock Bowling. Think about it. ;-) And, on that note, I'm gonna step off my soap box and get back to editing the photos I took on my trip to Cali. Everything's updated. Yada Yada Yada. I hope Punk Rock Bowling gets some better bands playing, otherwise I got better things to do, like check out the new water park that's opening that weekend. Hyped! :-)
