Free time? What's that? Rest? Yeah right! hahaha Short of obsessing on the latest Lipstick Homicide release, I'm pretty much stuck in a cycle of practicing, mixing, cutting MP3's, learning songs, more practicing and maybe, if I'm lucky, sleeping. My car is still broken, so I'm being chauffeured around everywhere, which just means I'm partying too much but having a lot of fun doing so. Nothing gets done but I don't care. The number of Bands I'm currently involved with is 5. I think I'm the new drummer for the Civilians, and I'm helping out my friends in S.F.T. with a couple of gigs they have coming up too, including a gig @ the LVCS opening up for Green Jelly, which should be... interesting?? Aluminum Falcon is playing the Double Clown this Friday, or Saturday, I don't know, and I don't remember where the next Vegascendents gig is, but I know there's one coming up somewhere, because we keep playing those same damn songs over and over and over again. LOL Oh, and the other band I'm in, the 'Super Secret Goth Band', featuring 5 different members of 5 different Local bands, is already planning gigs and getting ready to record. I wish I was as good a drummer as Brett Balu's favorite band in town is, but unfortunately, I can play more than one prodding oompa-loompa shuffle, and I can actually keep a beat... heh heh In between all that band practice, I find time to catch a few winks and spend some quality time with the girl I love, oh and go to gigs when I can and listen to new music, because that's the best, especially when it's your Friends making the music. :-) Oh, and the website. Sometimes I can get stuff done on the website. Lots of stuff.
Let's start things off with this: the Peter Murphy / Ours gig review. Click here to read it. It was easy to do since I rushed posting the Pictures I took of him that night, and after that all I needed to do was keep my gushing semi-coherent and to a minimum. Oh, click here to check the photos I took from that night out. I also posted some photos I took of Guilty By Association when they opened up for D.I. @ the LVCS last month, and you can click here to see those. Did I tell you about the Lipstick Homicide pictures that I took? Click here to see those if I didn't. I'm still rocking their music. It's the soundtrack to my Summer and I'm loving it. I also posted some Music Reviews on the latest, and maybe last ever, Deadhand EP, and you can click here to read that, as well as a write up on the reissue of the Big Boys - Where's My Towel / Industry Standard LP, as in vinyl, as in, beautiful, white vinyl, and you can click here to read that. I also posted an old Gig Review I did for that Push Forward Skateboarding benefit gig that went down a few months ago @ the Beauty Bar, and you can click here to read that if you give a fuck. I don't. There's more coming though, so be warned. Pet Tigers are playing @ the LVCS tonight. Check them out and get your New Wave on. The Black Jetts and Fuzz SoLow are playing @ The Dive tomorrow night with Bob Log III, so if you got nothing better to do, then stop on by and check out some cool music. Squid Hat Records are having some sort of showcase on Thurs. @ Backstage Bar & Billiards, with almost every band on their roster playing, so check that out and support the few, very few bands that are worth supporting on their roster... heh heh There's other stuff going on as well this weekend, like that Aluminum Falcon gig I was talking about earlier, but damned if I know what any of the details are at this time, and I don't care. The sun is coming up and I'm gonna climb up on my roof and watch it. :-)
Everything is updated. Congratulations to my beautiful friend Danielle and her lucky Husband to be Ryan on their upcoming nuptials today. I'm gonna try to be there but it's not looking too good as of now. Save me some of that apple pie moonshine though, please? Thank you! XOXO
