I am gonna try to recount the past week's nocturnal activities, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to fail miserably. I really can't do any of it justice. It was soooooo much fun! :-) Let me just Thank everyone for participating, and making my 38th Birthday one of the best ever! LOL
Hmmmmm, so let's see. My Birthday celebrating started on Weds. playing a gig where I broke my kick drum skin from kicking it so hard. It's been a while since I've done that... heh heh Anyways, If you missed out on seeing The Heroine tear shit up last Weds. @ the Bikini Bar then you're seriously retarded. Seriously. They were fantastic. Check out the video below for proof.
The People's Whiskey played a phenomenal set, with everyone in the place (except for a drunken old skateboarding sound guy from the Double Clown) loving everything that they played. They blew the roof off of the joint and I was right there up front and center to watch them do it, loving every minute of it. The People's Whiskey. Check them out if you haven't already. Their Facebook page is right here. :-) The Quitters never cease to amaze me with their fantastic sounding songs of Punk praise, and they've added a second guitar player to the mix, although, to be fair, he was playing through some crappy equipment or something, because he could barely be heard, and when he was heard, he sounded like crap. Oh well. The Quitters still melted faces, but I could of done without the drum solo from Micah. Drum solo? Really? At a bar? LOL And I finally got to see the Reverend Lord's Unholy Saints, and could see what everyone was saying about them. Me personally, I couldn't tell if it was yodeling or Rockasilly, so I just called it Yodelbilly and left it at that. Yeah, it was a fun night @ the Bikini Bar. Thanks again to everyone for coming out - and just who was that crazy girl who kept rrrrrrolling herrrrrr prrrrrrronunciation of the letterrrrrrrrr 'R'rrrrrrrrrr? ha ha ha ha
Thursday was all about Recovery. Friday night I got arrested for Felony Concealed Weapons charges right in front of Sin's condo complex. Yeah, apparently a Leatherman in the glove compartment and a pair of old rusty scissors behind your passengers seat constitute Concealed Weapons Felonies, so yeah, that was funny. Don't drive suspiciously in the rich part of town is all I gotta say. LOL I got bailed out in a few hours and was back on the streets by 3 am. My Lawyer laughed about it and said not to worry. I told him I wasn't, and that's why I pay him the big, big bucks for. I was telling people @ the Bikini Bar on Weds. that I was going to get arrested on my Birthday. I just didn't know what for. I just had a feeling. It was waaaaayyy over-due. ;-)
I woke up Sat. with a bad case of the CCDC flu, and after scrubbing it off of me I picked up Sin from just outside the scene of my arrest and headed down to the Motor City Cafe to catch Pigasus and The Swamp Gospel and Sweet Justice, who cancelled for some reason or another. Boooooooooo. Oh well. The 2 Local bands used the extra time allotted to play some cool ass music, with the Swamp Gospel playing some Cramps derived Rock And Roll, and with Pigasus playing a set that would of had the approval of Iggy And The Stooges. Fun night, which ended waaaaayyy too early in the morning, and led to a steady stream of vomit all the way down Flamingo Blvd. ;-) Sunday, SOMEBODY had stuff to do at 10:30 in the morning, which led me to spending the day avoiding the urge to bite people's faces off, and crashing out early that evening.
So yeah, that's my Birthday Binge in a nutshell. I'm leaving out the fine details like the Sex, Drugs, and late night Fellipilito's runs, but you get the gist of what I'm saying, right? Anyways, Thanx to everyone for the Gifts, and let's do it again next year, OK? Everything is updated. Pictures of The Heroine are up and available here for your perusal, and in case you didn't see the flyer on your way in here, The Bronx are playing at the Double Down for Valentine's Day, and it's an Invite-Only event, but that doesn't mean you can't go. Use your brain, be creative, and I'm sure you'll be able to get in. Maybe... heh heh heh
