Shellac... Wowsers. I just got done posting up all the photos I took (which you can see by clicking here), and I was just reminded of what an Epic performance it was. It's funny that everybody and their Mom asked me about it, but not a lot of people I know went. Me, Jeff from the Bitters, Catasco, Louie The Letch, Jack from Pigasus & Pamela, Brent from the Underground, and that was pretty much it. The rest of the audience was made up of trendy fucks and really old Hipsters, like, people who were the Hip Young ones back in 1992. LOL It was like the Downtown Dooshbag Scene were just there because it was an event, something they heard was Cool but knew nothing about. Disgusting, but oh well. I had a blast, which is all that matters. So yeah, check the Pictures out, and if you like the new layout, or even if you don't, you have Ashley to thank for that, because I totally stole the idea from her! LOL Ashley is a very close Friend of mine and she has her own website for her amazing photography work (www.ashleychance.com) and I'm on there all the time checking out what she's up to and what she's shot lately. She's got 'The Eye', something that all great Photographers have, and I'm very jealous of her Talent and I try to steal from her every chance I get... hahaha Anyways, check her website out and if you need any sort of photographic work done, hit her up about it and she'll shoot it for you on the cheap. Real Photography is an Art, and she is truly an Artist. Support man, Support. :-)
I was gonna do a Show Review of the Shellac gig, but I didn't do anything to remember it afterwords, like write it down or tape some notes like I usually do, because I had to skedaddle to Cali immediately afterwords, and after everything that went down there, the Shellac gig seems like eons ago and almost inconsequential. Almost I said. :-) Yeah, California was a trip. I spent my time just wandering around my old Home town and just... reminiscing. Running into Old and Dear Friends, remembering how things once were and then seeing how things are is quite humbling, to say the least. I hadn't been back to Whittier proper in 20 years... Wowsers. I can't let that happen again. I had a great time while I was there. I ate and went everywhere I could. Saw a couple of cool bands (The Backdoor Preachers and Civil Disgust). Missed out on seeing Face To Face and Walk Proud @ Alex's in Long Beach because I was having too much fun in Whittier and couldn't tear myself away from it. Sorry to mis Hermanos in Walk Proud. Why is it every time I'm out of state fucking Face To Face is playing? LOL gawd my trip was such fun. I think I'm gonna post some Pictures on here of it all... maybe.
Hey! Guess what? I have a gig I'm playing this Sat.! Woo Hoo! 2 weekends in a row. This could set a bad precedent... heh heh. Aluminum Falcon will be ripping it up with some other cool as fuck Punk bands of all shapes and sizes and you should start your Halloween festivities off that night by grubbing on some tacos and watching us play. I'll be the guy behind the sexy orange drum man sized drum set - what I'll be wearing this year is up to you to come out and see. I'll tell you one thing though - it ain't gonna be no Star Wars costume! LOL Ya know, now that I think about it, The Captain never gave me those Pictures he took of us last year playing in costume @ the LVCS. Booooooooooooooo to him.
It's Halloween, which means that it's also the end of October. I got waaaayyyy too much going on to even focus on writing down what's been going on in my head as of late. I'm on such a high right now that I don't ever wanna come down, and if things work out, maybe I won't have to. Gifts from the North are in transit and I eagerly await their delivery. Long may the Crow fly. Forever may the Wolf howl. See you on Saturday. Wear a costume.
