Lucky The Donkey - Guttermouth
Man, Weds. night gigs are the biz! :-)
I had sooooooo much fun last night! Much better turnout for a mid-week excursion than I thought there would be, and seeing soooooo many beautiful, happy, brightly blonde and freshly sober faces that came out to check out the gig was marvelous. Jenn, Alex, the guys from Deadhand, AJ, Dean, Bob, of course, and anyone else I'm forgetting, big Thanx to you all for coming out and making things fun. It was also Billy from Guilty By Association's birthday, so there might of been some drinking and drugging going on in the vicinity, but my memory is a bit hazy on the details... heh heh
All the bands that played were exceptional. Aluminum Falcon debuted their 'Wall of Sound' stage configuration last night, and guess what? Everyone said we were loud - good and loud! Go figure, right? And the band after us was War Called Home, and they were pretty good. Their front man can certainly sing. Jeremy used to be the bass player in that band, and I can see why - lots of riffing and noodling involved musically. I dug 'em. The band from Oakland called Weekender were up 3rd, and they sounded A LOT like Thursday... that's all I'm saying. ;-) Their drummer carried his cymbals in a Godfather's Pizza delivery bag. You gotta love that. And TheCore (or TheCore., or The Core, or however they're spelling it these days) played one of the best sets I've ever seen them do. The mix was great, the energy level on stage was through the roof, and they sounded fucking great. Those of us who stuck around The Dive (or Favorite's, or The Divebar, or whatever they're calling it these days) were treated to an impressive set of Music from those guys, and that's saying a lot from someone who's seen them quite a few times in the past. I was beyond hyped. It was definitely worth the wait. They closed the night down with their cover of True Believers by the Bouncing Souls that had everyone in the place singing along and rocking out. I headed for the door when all that happened... heh
Everything's updated. The Dirty Panties, The Quitters (of course), The Seriouslys and Tiger Sex, a band featuring Kei from the Tinglerz on guitar, are playing the Double Clown on Fri. night. If you got nothing better to do, it's a pretty good line up to check out. :-)
