OK, it's not like that there's nothing going on in the Scene, right? ;-)
Here's the problem - there's too much going on! I'm completely suckered back into the whole Red Dead Redemption thing, and the new Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 comes out today. As soon as I'm done typing this up I'm heading to Game Stop to grab me a copy, and you probably won't see me for about a month! LOL I'm on one of the luckiest streaks ever with the Females in my Life, and I got this gig with the Vegascendents for some Punk Rock Bowling after party thing in Oxnard (Nardcore!) coming up that has me pretty preoccupied, so with all that going on, I just don't have to urge to see Gigs as much as I should. I missed the Deadhand / TheCore gig this past weekend as well as some house party that the Civilians played on Sunday. Sorry guys. Plus, it's pretty nauseating when Local bands announce that they're 'Playing their 2nd release in it's entirety" like they're fucking Slayer or something. Get a clue Egomaniacs - nobody gives a shit if you play your first, second, third fourth or fifth release in it's entirety because if it was any good, if it really was a Classic release that deserved to be heard in it's entirety, like Rain In Blood or Sailing The Seas Of Cheese or Three Imaginary Boys, you guys WOULD be Slayer at this point in your musical career, but you're not. Sorry. Don't quit your day job. And nobody's impressed that you're opening for the big bands at the Joint either. What did that do for you the last time you opened for that same band? Oh, that's right - NOTHING! Fucking Tools. No wonder whenever I mention that your band is playing a gig people give me that funny look, like they just smelled a dirty diaper full of shit. It all makes sense now...
Anyways, like I said, things are coming to a crawl around here because Life is interfering with the website. I'm sure it will come to an end soon but for right now, I'm just gonna enjoy what's going on, living the Life, loving the Dream. :-) Lots of cool gigs coming up - as always, check the Gig Calendar page for the cool gigs happening around town. Fucking Thunderfist is playing the Double Down on Friday, and if it was anywhere else, I would be there front and center, because I fucking LOVE that band, but the Double Down? Fuck that place. Someday I'm gonna go Public with why I don't like that place, and the whole back story of why you shouldn't support such a toilet bowl of a place or the Dooshbag that claims credit for everything that has went on in there. Some of you know the Real story, and others out there try to deny it, like it didn't happen. The funniest are the History Re-Writers. Somewhere, Scott is rolling over in his grave... well, not really. He's probably drunk, sipping on his Scotch and smoking those stinky cigars of his, laughing and carrying on like the cool guy he was, like when HE gave a couple of Punx from L.A. a chance at establishing HIS bar as a viable option for bands to play at, against the better wishes of his partner who said that Bands would never work there, and did his damnedest to make sure they wouldn't. :-) Yeah... someday...
Everything is updated. Monster Zero is playing Fri. @ the Motor City Cafe, and go see the Naked City Romeos on Sat. there too because they're all sexy beasts and they play some kick ass Punk Rock music. Buy their CD too if you can - you will NOT be disappointed! And bug Turbo for some free Naked City Romeos stickers too! ;-) Sunday if you got a beard, or if you're an Anglophile, you'll go to to the Kevin Seconds / Cunt Sparrer gig @ the Bunkhouse, or, if you like your guitars LOUD with lots of noodling, you'll be at the High On Fire / Demon Lung gig @ the Bunkhouse. And BTW, that Cunt Sparrer thing is a fucking joke. After that Turbonegra fiasco I watched one time, I'm convinced that chicks just can't play that aggressive, hard Punk music. Nope. If it was a bunch of guys playing crappy Cock Sparrer covers, no one would give a shit, but since it's a bunch of girls playing crappy Cock Sparrer covers, everyone here acts like it's the Second Coming or something. Fucking Tools. As always, it's either there's nothing going on, or there's too much going on, and it looks like Sunday is the day for that to happen. :-) If I can stop playing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 long enough, or if I'm allowed to by my better halves, I'll see you at the gigs! :-)
