Well, I'm glad that's finally over with. 2 down, 1 to go.
Somewhere along the way I stupidly agreed to help out my friends in Guilty By Association by telling them I'd play drums for them for this gig with The Interrupters, which they seemed to want to really play really, really badly. Whatever. So they threw me a set list, promising me that we would get together and practice hard for the gig, which, of course, never happened. I'm an idiot for believing them, right? LOL You gotta love a band that's so confidant / arrogant that they only practice for a gig the day of said gig... ha ha ha But we did it, we pulled it off, with lots of mistakes, missed cues (none from me - I played flawlessly!! ha ha ha), and improvisation on stage for some apparent reason but all in all, I'm glad I did it. Had a great time up there on stage @Vinyl, and even more of a good time just hanging around with all my friends who came out on a Weds. night to have a little fun before the Holidays. The grub sesh afterwords @Mr. Lucky's was just the icing on the cake. Caught the first few songs of Be Like Max and was just shocked at how mediocre it all sounded from the stage. Think the nerds in Band class in high school decide to form a Ska band, and they're playing at the quad during lunch, and you'll pretty much have the whole Be Like Max live experience. Tons of kids there to see them though, so what do I know? Bad Cop/Bad Cop have always, always, always sucked, and The Interrupters were downright pathetic. Shitty drummer playing in a shitty 2,864th wave Ska band, with a "cute" chick with big boobs who looked and sounded like Brodie from The Distillers singing. No wonder that bearded doosh from Rancid is all over that band. You would of thought he'd learned his lesson the first time around, right? LOL The underground buzz about that band makes sense now. I get it, and it's pathetic, and I'm embarrassed for my friends who like that band. Cheap thrills. Apparently the thing to do nowadays is just to get some cute chick to be in your band, and you'll have every guy in a band over 30 thinking your band is the shit. Boobs and pussy over musical talent every day nowadays, right guys? Right! ha ha ha ha
