Seriously - how sick was that Nails gig last night? That band was fucking mind blowing, face melting, life affirming, and any other superlative infused adjective sentence that you can think of. Definitely a highlight of the year and if you missed out on it, well, too fucking bad for you. This shit was legendary, and brought everyone and their mother out to the gig. It would of been perfect if it wasn't for the douche bag tuff girl hardcore dancing that was going on. The room just fills up with gheyness when the stupied xHaRdCoReX kids start doing that shit. It's almost embarrassing at this point when it happens. Much like Rockasilly, I can't wait until it just dies and goes away. I don't know the names of any of the bands that were opening the gig, but one of them was some new band with Andres and Cheeze, who used to be in Weirding Way and Vulcans, and was pretty fucking brutal, in a very good way. The bass players pedal or cabinet or both blew up like 3 or 4 songs in, so it was a short but sweet set from them but man, was it fucking good. The night was filled with drama, Drama DRAMA, with both guys and girls getting into fights with each other, and the Ecophagy Records blow up with Crystal, Big Red and some other chick was pretty fun to be in the middle of. A night full of Drama and none of it had anything to do with me! LOL Such a rarity indeed! Great night @ Yayo Taco. Write up coming soon - Hank, where were you at fucker???
It figures that my car decides to take a shit AGAIN today, on the eve of the Punk Rock Weekend going on @ Area 702 skate park, kicking off tonight with the Agent Orange / 7 Outs gig I was going to go to. I went to band practice instead. Sat. I was going to go to a very Special wedding of 2 very dear friends, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen for me. Sorry. After the wedding I was heading over to the LVCS to catch Raw Power rip shit up, but it looks like I'm missing out on that too. Fucking bad timing or what? The Punk Rock weekend had Angry Samoans and CH3 on Sun., but I wasn't even planning on that. I feel sorry for CH3, because the Angry Samoans suck sooooooooo badly now that it's gotta be an embarrassment to gig with them, like it's an embarrassment to gig with certain Local bands nowadays. Funny how the 2 lamest ones to be on those bills were suddenly gone off of them, if they were ever on them at all. It's over Johnny - it's over. Deal with it.
Yeah, lots of things going on, so take advantage. New bands gigging around, Old bands playing that may never be seen in these parts ever again. This is no time to be stuck at home with a defective fuel pump, so get off your ass and see some live music. There's no better way to spend the weekend.
