Maybe it's just a Sunday thing. Punk Rock gigs with big name bands headlining just don't go over as well as expected. I mean, you were there, right? Where was everyone else at? The 10:30 start time didn't help, but you know how THAT goes. I heard that S.F.T. killed it. Good for them. Glad that new drummer is working out. See? I told you guys it would! ;-) And as for that other Local band on the bill, you know, the one who keeps announcing that they're breaking up and then they don't (pathetic, and it's been done before), well, I think the crowd's reaction during your set pretty much says it all. You should go off with that other Local "Punk" band here in town and just fade away into mediocre banality, remembered only as a punch line to a joke nobody thought was funny in the first place. Bye Felicia. Bye!
It's sad that everybody was soooooo fucking amazed that the Foo Fighters were at LIB playing a bunch of cool covers this weekend - WOW!! How "Epic" that must of been!! ha ha ha Sometimes the people I know and associate with disappoint me a lot... ;-)
Sat. was apparently "Dress Up Like The Dudes From Ghostbusters" day. If you weren't involved or informed, or somewhere that someone was dressed up like that, then you missed out. You snooze, you lose! Love the irony of Thee Shitty Bastards filling in for the Vermin when they dropped off the bill @ the Double Clown for Melo's Birthday Party/Jenn-O-Cide's Going Away Party on Sat. Hope Ruckus wasn't working that night, because that would of been... awkward?!?! LOL Good luck on your 3 year adventure Jenn! Aloha! And BTW... Shortest. Ban. EVER!! ;-)
Fri. was all about D.R.I. @ the Dive. I didn't go because my hair isn't long enough. Life's Torment apparently stole that show, which is good, since it seemed that Larry from that band was the only one promoting the shit out of the gig everywhere and in every way possible. When his band gets signed, don't act surprised.
Everything's updated. Seems like I spend my time nowadays more concerned with documenting the past, rather than participating in the present, at least in the Punk Rock world anyways. For instance - I forgot about talking about the Water Landing pix I posted a while back, and you can click here to see them. I would of taken more, but I had to stand there and listen to everybody give me their opinion as to why thought the band sucked, so I missed out. Also from that night are the photos I took of The Psyatics, who's strangely named CD Oderint Dum Metuant has been on constant play around these parts, and you can click here to see the pix I took of them. They're a great band. You should check them out.
In the "Chris Duggan - Nobody Cares" dept., we have a shitload more old pix re-posted up on the website. Again, only matters if you were there. I can't remember what I posted vs. what I announced I posted, so I'm gonna have to go back and recheck everything. Sorry if anything got double posted. Did that make sense? LOL

I also added a post to the Tunes page, and it's from Local band Dirty Sanchez, believe it or not. I cleaned up their demo from 2008 with my Adobe Audition program, and you can click here to check it out and download the music to your computer if you like it. I plan on doing this a lot more with my old band demos, because they're not doing fuck all but sitting on my shelf in my room collecting dust, so I might as well post them up and let others enjoy them as well. Yeah, I'm all about the sharing, and the Love... ha ha ha
*whew* That's a lot of bullshit right there. I'm pretty sure I've forgotten more than a few things from all over the place, but that's all I can recall right now. More to come, of course. :-)
