Yeah, I'm a very lucky man indeed! ;-)
I just finished up with a Vegascendents practice, for some gig we have coming up somewhere with somebody, and I was reminded by Senor Tyson that the final mixed down, fully mastered Aluminum Falcon CD was sitting in my inbox, waiting to be heard, and I'm listening to it now, and I gotta say I'm pretty impressed. It's not as good or as cool as your band, of course, but I like it anyways! ;-) Listening to these mp3's replaces those Unfair Fight mp3's I've been rocking as of late, from their upcoming EP release, which is going to be nothing short of incredible. This one's going down in the History books, that's for sure. And those Unfair Fight mp3's replaced those No More Saints mp3's that I got from the download card that came with the Halloween colored orange and black vinyl record they sent me through the mail (Thanks Guys!), and those mp3's replaced the Dirty Panties mp3's I was listening to after buying, yes BUYING, their CD from the Squid Hat Records guys who were manning their merch booth at that Bikini Bar gig. See? I support the Scene! LOL And, bringing this all to full closure, those Dirty Panties mp3's replaced those Fat Dukes Of Fuck mp3's that I was rocking religiously ever since I got their CD Honey From The Lips Of An Angel in the mail. Yeah, all sorts of new Music in my Life, which just makes me a very happy camper indeed. Reviews on all of it forthcoming, just as soon as I find the time to do it all.
The whole point of me coming on here and typing away is to tell you about the gig last night @ Favorites. It was cool, despite the fact there were a few worthless pieces of shit in attendance that I just wanted to level. It took every bit of my being not to just go up to them and spit in their face and smash them one something proper, but I didn't, because it was Dean's first show @ Favorite's and I didn't wanna fuck things up for him with the Drama. Lemme catch you ass spelunkers somewhere else though and things will be different, I can promise you that. Despite all of this BS I had a really good time. Nate and Angie took real good care of us, we got paid a surprisingly large amount of money, and the bands were OK, although I don't think I'll have anything to do with Roid Rage from here on out. Besides all the ex-Deth Kids scumbags they have as fans, friends, whatever, they also have some of the aforementioned worthless pieces of shit in their inner circle, so I'll stay as far away from them as much as possible and avoid that Drama like the AIDS disease it is. Mersa were good but man do they need a singer... lol Watching Bob skateboard around inside the bar is always fun, and after his little disappearing act (where was he and why?) the night ended @ Filipito's eating tacos, with Bob doing his best to get us thrown out of the place by flashing drunken blonde bimbos in the drive-thru and by playing dodge ball inside the joint. Don't ask.
OK. I think I'm gonna go to the carniceria and grab some pollo and get my BBQ on before the Surrounded By Thieves gig tonight @ Favorites. Again, there's a bunch of other cool things going on tonight, like that Abyssinians show @ the Silverton (Fuuuck), Scarlett @ the Underground, the Happy Campers / 3d6 gig @ the Bikini Bar, and I even think Fiona Apple is playing tonight too, but the gig @ Favorite's is the place to be at tonight. A better trio of Local talent you won't find. Surrounded By Thieves exemplify the whole Punk Rock D.I.Y. ethos and this celebration for their latest release should be a fantastic time for all who attend. All the bands are expected to kick mucho ass tonight. I mean, the Tinglerz kill it each and every time they play, as do the Seriouslys, but they will be debuting a new drummer who's pretty darn cute looking, if I do say so myself, so yeah, as if you needed any more incentive to get off your ass and out from behind your computer, come listen to some good music and look at some unobtainable cute band members! LOL Every band member in every band is spoken for, with an assortment of girlfriends, boyfriends and wives as partners, so all you can do is looky looky - no touchy touchy! Well, maybe a little touchy touchy if nobody's looking... heh heh. So yeah, see you @ Favorites tonight. You can't miss me. I'll be the guy up front watching the bands with a camera in my hands. Say cheese! :-)
