Capitalist Casualties? Amazeballz. They fucking killed it in front of a warehouse sized room full of thrashing maniacs fueled by cheap booze and some stanky ass weed! LOL Oh, and some dank ass cupcakes. I had like 7 of them. :-) Seemed like everybody in the place was high on something, which was cool, because the atmosphere was chill, no fights, no attitude, no Drama, well, except for everybody in the pit that wanted to kill that kid in the Bane shirt... ha ha ha but otherwise, funtastic gig! The Artistic Armory is pretty much an art / performance place, but the people running it seem great, so let's hope it sticks around for a bit as a viable option for bands to play All Ages gigs at, or until the real "Punx" do their "stupied" shit and fuck it all up by drinking in the parking lot and trashing the area around the place. Oh well. Like I said, it was a great gig, Capitalist Casualties were stunning, Life's Torment (with the Legendary Vic Moya on drums) fucking killed it as well, and even God's America blew up the place with their fucking killer set. It's too bad that plastique pathetic bandwagon jumping Downtown dooshbag plays bass for that band, because I'd really like to like them, but oh well. That guy can suck a dick and so can you if you missed out on the gig. ;-) I would of paid more attention to the touring bands that played, but for some reason, they all took forever to set up, which is bullshit!! There's like a huge empty alley, directly behind where the bands were playing, so why they weren't setting up their gear there instead of on the stage area is beyond me. All I know is that it shouldn't take a band more than 15 minutes to either get their gear off the stage or to get it on the stage. If it takes you more time than that, then I got better things to do. Yeah, big Thanx! to everyone who hung out, did shots with me, bought me cupcakes, told me I was right about Punk Rock Posing, or who just told me about being a Punk in Cedar City, UT. :-) I took lots of Pictures, but unfortunately, I busted my camera AGAIN at the Goth night thingy going on @ Boomer's later on that night. so I have to wait for my camera to get back from the repair shop to get those pictures up and edited, which is OK, because I'm so far behind in that dept. it's not funny.
"What do you wanna do?" She asked me.
I dunno, what do YOU wanna do? I shot back at her. ;-)
"Well, my friend's band is playing at the Velveteen Rabbit tonight..."
Wait a minute? I said. Who's your friend?
"Shayna Rain", she said. "She's playing tonight."
Yeah, I know, I said. My friend Fuzz SoLow is playing there, opening up for Shayna Rain & The Gents... LOL
"Let's go!" She said. And we did. :-)
And that's how I found myself in Hipster Hell checking out Fuzz SoLow doing his thing on a Thurs. night. Great set from him too. If you haven't already checked out his one man band thing, you're missing out on some cool foot stomping ass kicking music. He did this cool thing where he put a loop of some music he made up on the spot, and then he made another loop of him saying "My name is Fuzz SoLow. Thank you for coming out to the show." and he walked around the room shaking everyone's hand while the looped words and music played on and on and on and on and gave them a cool hand painted Fuzz SoLow sticker, which I will sell on Ebay in 20 years for millions of dollars... ha ha ha Cool stuff. That Shayna Rain & The Gents band wasn't as bad as I thought they were going to be, but I was zoning out pretty hard during their set. How does a drummer play that softly? ;-)
