Happy Holidays Homies! :-)
Fri. night after S.F.T. practice Erika dragged me Downtown to the Beauty Bar for the Petra Ice CD release party. They were opening up for Mexican Dubweiser, who were a pretty shitty experience. The accordion player looked like a Mexican member of the Turbojugend though. And Petra Ice were mellow but OK. Mexican Hipster music for all your inner Chunti needs. :-) Fun night. It was definitely surreal hearing Ranchero versions of Cure and Siouxsie And The Banshees songs though, but it was all worth if for the hot dogs from that damn dude slanging them across the street from the Beauty Bar. What the fuck is in that hot dog water that makes those wieners soooo good?? LOL
Sat. night I was right back at the Beauty Bar Downtown, filling in for S.F.T. on drums while they opened up for Ten Foot Pole. I love telling those guys that I'm just filling in on drums, because it drives them crazy... ha ha ha The gig was inside and not outside, thank Gawd, and the turn out was small but enthusiastic. People were really digging on Ten Foot Pole, but I wasn't feeling it in the least bit, so I left early. I didn't even bother checking out Sic Waiting, because they pulled the ol' "we have to play right before the headliners. because we're sharing the same equipment" BS trick. Boooooooo. They were almost going to keep all their gear up on the tiny stage, but Bob and I quickly talked them out of that... heh heh. War Called Home got stuck playing clean up after Ten Foot Pole, and I felt bad for them because of it. Oh well. Grant and Rich are good dudes, and it's always fun hanging around them. Good gig. Erika and I finished up the night chillaxing with Cassie and N.J. Pete @ Scarlet, listening to Christian Death and Ministry songs. :-)

Another gig I found the photos from included a spectacular 4th of July gathering @ Squiggy's, which featured The Latch Key Kids (click here to see the pics), The Divebombers (click here to see the pics), and The Americant's (click here to see the pics), a group which featured the legendary Hank Musgrove on vocals and some guy who's now featured on Pawn Stars on guitar. Meh. ;-)
Happy Christmas everyone! Merriest of Holidays to you and yours. :-)
