It's too late for this announcement to mean anything, but Deadhand will NOT be playing @ the Bunkhouse tonight, due to unforeseeable reasons. This sux because I was seriously planning on going down there to get my fix on from them sexy beasts in that band. They were playing with Burning Agrestic, who are a good band, but just not good enough to get me to go downtown on a Sat. night. Phooey. Now I got nothing to do. I'm not going to Club Scarlett, and I'm definitely not going to the Double Clown. But then Roxie sends me a text saying that Union 13 (from East Los) was playing tonight. I suddenly got hyped, but just as quickly it went away once I saw who they were playing with. Ugh!
This is the flyer she sent me for the gig. No offense, but can you believe this shit? It clearly looks like Union 13 got added to an already established bill of mediocrity, which is something that Favorite's is notoriously known for; adding too many bands to one gig, and add this to the fact that that fucking place never promotes any of their gigs or events from like all 3 of their Facebook pages and you can see how I can get pissed about this shit. I love Union 13. I've got everything they've put out, well, everything up to before their original lead singer left, and I've been supporting them since their Boyle Heights / City Terrace backyard party beginnings, but despite all that, I don't love them enough to go see them at this gig. I couldn't stand through the opening bands suckiness and low energy levels, even though Fuzz So Low is pretty good, but not on a bill like this. Union 13 needs a good line up of angry Punk bands to play with, not a line up of a bunch of bands compromised of mature Musicians showing off their chops. Oh well. Better luck next time. I messaged the band on Facebook, telling them if they wanted a good gig to hit me up. I'm hoping they take me up on the offer.
Anyways, everything is updated. I just added a Gig Review from the Legendary Karl Bakla, a review for the Generators / Guilty By Association / Battle Born / The Seriouslys gig he went to a few weeks back, and you can go here to check it out. I also added some of the photos I took at the LVCS a while back, photos of CH3 and the Hard Pipe Hitters, and you can go here to check out the photos of CH3, and you can click here to see the pictures of the Hard Pipe Hitters, or you can just go to the Pictures page and seek them out yourself; either / or. I'll leave you with a video I took that night of the Tinglerz playing a damn catchy song that I don't know the name of. It's Super Bowl Sunday tomorrow and I could give a shit less. East Coast Rap Thug Mentality vs. West Coast Rap Thug Mentality. They can both suck it as far as I'm concerned.
