2 hours. 2 fucking hours I sat inside of Yayo Taco, waiting for something, anything to happen. I was starting to get irritated at last nights Coke Bust gig @ Yayo Taco.
The reason why me, and all 5 bands who were scheduled to play, were sitting around looking stupid was because there was no P.A. available. Yeah, you read that right. Whatever dumbass promoter was responsible for the gig apparently thought that Yayo Taco was a venue and not a taco shop and thought that a P.A. would be provided. Just. Fucking. Great. So an hour after the gig was supposed to start all that the bands could come up with was 2 little ass P.A. speakers - no cables, no microphones, not even 2 stands to hold these little ass speakers up - it was pathetic, and once we heard the bands bitching about playing time and who was playing in what slot I called it a night and gave up on the gig. Sorry Coke Bust. I really wanted to see you play but apparently it wasn't meant to be. Oh well. I also really wanted to see all my Friends on Facebook who said they were gonna be there, but, in a perfect example of it, I guess it's easier to do things on Facebook than in real life, like how people keep posting all that Occupy Wall Street shit, or Occupy Vegas or whatever, and then they don't even bother to show up. Hypocrites. Phooey.
I believe it was Gandhi who said First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win in regards to peaceful protesting, and all I can say to that is that you couldn't be more wrong if you tried! LOL The Govt. is cracking down tomorrow on all that shit, with the big show down coming at sunrise with the Occupy Wall Street crew. Fuhrer Bloomberg and his Gestapo stormtroopers are taking back that park, and there ain't a thing that peaceful protesting is gonna do to stop it. Talk - Action = Zero. As the MC5 said, It's time to kick out the Jams Motherfucker!! And before you think to yourself that if you were there, you'd be right there on the front line fighting it out against the Police, just stop it, because you wouldn't. You're a Hypocrite arm chair rebel who watches what's going on from safe behind your computer screen. Just quit it. I wouldn't be there because it's not a cause that I believe in fighting for. Sorry. I support the Fight but won't fight for it, if that makes any sense. Politics. Phooey.
Zeke / Custom Made Scare @ the LVCS tomorrow - Who's going besides me??? :-)
Yeah, the Las Vegas Shakedown is a joke. They should just call it what it is, and that's Viva Las Vegas without the car show. It's also pretty stupid that a lot of the bands are playing at other venues around town for Free, so why would you pay the ridiculously high price to see the headliner? In the case of Zeke it's worth it, but the rest of the gigs? Fuck off. And I hate that there aren't enough Local bands on the fucking bills. How the Fremonts got that opening slot at the Zeke gig is beyond me (wink wink), but since it starts at 4 o'clock, I doubt that anyone of the 21 and over crowd that Zeke fans are made of will be there. I know I won't. Enjoy playing to that empty room guys. And Flexx Bronco again? Really? Weren't they just here like 2 months ago? LOL They're an OK band but come on. Why couldn't The People's Whiskey play that gig in that spot? :-) Might guarantee that some Locals get there early, but that makes too much sense, so I'll just stop now. And I guess they didn't need to advertise either. Oh well. Deadbolt is playing the Opening Night kickoff tonight, and hardly anybody knows about it. Good job there Ralph. Go cater to that Las Vegas Weekly crowd some more, and lemme know how that works out, OK? Thanx!
Everything is updated. You know the drill. See you somewhere soon. :-)
