So you probably noticed the tiny changes I've made to the website. It all came about after checking out my website on a few different computers and analyzing the data from those of you who come here to check this shit out. What looked good on my 19" flat screen monitor just wasn't happening on someone's 15" monitor set to a 800 x 600 resolution. Not that this layout does either, but it helps out a little bit with the viewing. I posted the Show Review of Tsar - The Black Jetts - Suite 666 @Matteo's Underground Lounge, and you can go here to check it out. Michelle took some great Pictures of us in action and you can go here to check those out. We did our first Interview (for Smash Magazine) after practice last night, so keep an eye out for us in their "Up and Coming Bands" section. I'd like to think that our Interview came out better than the Luv-Taps did, but I could be wrong. I mean...we were pretty drunk. Apologies to all the bands who have been bugging me to check out their shows or to Interviewthem. I'm gonna get around to doing them all...just give me some time.
50 people at a Death By Stereo show? Basically nobody @ the Dead Kennedys show? (like that's surprising? They were giving away those tickets by the handful on various websites and shows around town and still couldn't get anyone to go) What the hell is going on? I guess what the problem is is that these promoters in town have to get a fucking clue and start doing more to support the local scene here in town. Quit putting the same 3 bands on the bill and if you promise a band that they can have the opening slot, keep your word and give it to them. Is that so hard to do? Apparently so. The only place actually doing something for the scene is The Cooler Lounge (God bless Rick H.). They will book any type of music (they were doing rap shows long before Revenge Therapy weaseled their way into that market) and they support and treat the musicians like equals, not like commodities. Rick has been booking Thrash / Metal bands there for a while, and now I hear that Moss @ the Double Down wants to start booking those type of shows as well. Fuck I despise Moss. Him and his Drinking Sperm With Moss TV show can both suck a dick. Anyways, there's a shit load of Music Reviews posted (The Black Jetts, New York Dolls, The Lucky Stiffs, Thinking Aloud, Les Hell On Heels, New Order, Two Man Advantage, Queens Of The Stone Age) and you can go here to check that shit out. Suite 666 finished recording our 4 song demo in one day and the word is that it sounds great. Special hugs, kisses and beer soaked bratwursts to Joe C. for hooking that up and putting up with our shenanigans. The last band I was in took 4 months just to finish 4 songs, so imagine my shock when we finished them all in one day. That's how it's supposed to be done. The White Stripesrecorded their album in 2 weeks. We'll probably do the same. Anyways, we're booking our West Coast tour and various weekend jaunts out to AZ. and CA. so keep your eyes peeled for those. Thanks to everyone that's been signing up to the Suite 666 Myspace group (the link can be found below) and hello to all the new friends of mine that have joined up to the onethirtyeight.org myspace group. I've been doing this website for 3 years now, and I don't see an end in sight. Oh yeah, some cool Interviews coming up with some kick ass local bands.Ballerina Backwards is my new favorite local band...just thought you should know...heh heh heh
