The less said about these past few days the better, OK? Apparently I'm just no good for girls on vacation looking to have fun. Apparently I'm just not a fun person to be around... LOL
I came on here to say something, something that someone asked me to mention on here, but damned if I know what it was now. Marijuana truly does affect the memory. ;-) Wait - oh yeah, Nick from Battle Born wanted me to remind you about the gig they're playing @ the Bunkhouse this Fri. I ran into him earlier at Wal-Mart fretting over his razor purchasing dilemma. They're playing with Local good guys Surrounded by Thieves and Eken Is Dead, who may be good, and who may be guys, I'm not sure. Anyways, after you're through with your First Friday shenanigans, stop on by. It's gonna be fun. :-)
I just scanned over some of the latest postings, and I don't think I said anything about stuff like that Deadhand gig @ the Bikini Bar last Thurs., which was great by the way. Deadhand are playing some fucking AMAZING sounding new songs that just make me chub up every time I hear them. I'm going to their gigs just to hear the new songs, and pretty much neglecting their back catalog of impressive music. Signals Midwest were pretty cool, playing a strong set of tunes that was like riding on a rickety old fishing boat in the middle of a powerfully destructive storm on the open seas. They roll and lurch and swell and turn and start and stop and come dangerously close to sinking at times, but they just never did. I thought they were excellent and their drummer was beast. I bought lots of merch but no shirt, because they didn't have any black shirts. What kind of band doesn't have black shirts? Jeesh! LOL And I found out that No Red Alice is just Sal from TheCore doing his Beardcore stuff. I watched him playing his songs while I was talking to Danielle the Promoter about upcoming stuff she has going on. She said I come across as an asshole on the website but that I'm a really sweet guy. Oh... she couldn't be more wrong about that if she tried... hahaha It was a cool little gig. I had fun. I drank S'more's shots that would of been much better if they had graham crackers to go with it.
I think the less said about the American Buckshot performance @ the Double Clown on Fri. the better, OK? hahaha People said we were really good, but they were obviously high on bath salts or something.
Saturday was that lame ass Positive Force thing, with all the old Punk Rock paraphernalia on display, but how positive could it be if it's held at Favorites? LOL The stabbing at the Tenacious D show is all over the news, and I think a Show Review for the NOFX thing is forthcoming, but I'm not sure. Sunday I was at that Sports Pub Reunion thing, where I sat at a table in the back and watched people I know and love make absolute embarrassing asses of themselves. Cocaine is a Hell of a drug, ya know? ;-) The guys from the Crystal Method were on the wheels of steel, so the music was pretty chill. Pure 80's Alternative crap. I met some very interesting people though, so the night wasn't a total waste...
Shit. I gotta get ready for Ashley & Brendan's little wedding reception thingy. Uhhmmm... check out the latest Show Review from Karl Bakla on the Pinkerton Thugs gig @ Favorite's last week by clicking here. Since Dean and Karl and Bob are all cranking out Show Reviews as of late, I figured I better do one too, and mine's was for the Fat Dukes Of Fuck / Civilians / Lotus gig @ the Motor City Cafe that happened the same day as the Pinkerton Thugs gig, and you can click here to check that out. Karl and I were in different places in the City at the same time equally drunk. :-) Oh, and I also posted the Pictures that my nephew Tony took at that Yayo Taco gig a few weeks back, so click here to check out his photos of Nothing With Numbers, and then click here to see his amazing photos of TheCore in action. That Kid has got the Eye, that's for sure, and watching him running around with my camera working the room was priceless. <3 Everything is updated. Gotta run. Enjoy this Video of Deadhand playing @ the Bikini Bar. It's a bit ruff but watchable.
