Every picture tells a story, don't it? Reviewing all the snap shots I took Fri. of the Black Fag gig had me in stitches, because not one of the photos are clear - they're all blurry, fuzzy and out of focus. That's because I was having too much FUN! Jumping around, headbanging, yelling and screaming along to everything coming through the PA was just too much for me to do AND take pictures at the same time, but I know that Senor Jesse The Super High Tech Photographer got some AMAZING shots (as usual) of Black Fag in action and all I can say is Wowsers. My Blue Moon infused brain remembers them being most excellent, to say the least. Black Fag were sooooooooooo fucking good. Was that DH Peligro on drums for them? I swear to Gawd I think it was. hahaha Whoever it was, his drumming was Top Notch, and definitely put the band over the top with his playing of the songs in a most proper manner. The chick bass player was sick. Cute too. The guitar player was OK, making up for his few mistakes with over the top enthusiasm. It's hard to rock out when you're a big guy wearing a sundress. Believe me I know. Liberace Morris was in fab-u-lous form that evening, looking splendid and orally riffing on anything and everything within his view, and giving it all back as good as he got it, like when he said 'Hey Dick Falcon - This is how it's done', and then the band launched into Jealous Again, which Dick Falcon had played earlier. I'm not sorry to say that Black Fag does it better... heh heh heh. There's just something about hearing classic Black Flag tunes played in a most disturbing homosexual way that just gets me each and every time. I cannot stress enough how much fun this gig was. I saw so many people there that I hadn't seen in years. I mean, the Airbag crew was in attendance, and those guys never come out to ANYTHING en masse, unless it's something really uber-geeky cool, so it was good seeing them all again after all these years. Lots of good friends, both old and new, all the bands (except Left Standing) sounded great, and my recording of 1/2 Ast came out SUH-WEET!! What's with all those new songs they played? When's that new album coming out, dammit? hahahaha Oh what a night! Thanks to all of you for hanging out with me. Drunken silly pictures will be forthcoming.
All that jumping around @ Black Fag had me in traction the next day, and that's partly why I missed Ainjil's little shindig happening @ LVCS (Sorry). I think she's mad at me and I don't blame her. Again, sorry. I heard it was fun though, if that means anything. Anyways, I've got lots of work to catch up on, so I'm gonna hit the ground running. Look for lots of stuff to be added and go live this week. I posted the photos of The Beat @ The Crown Theater (click here to see them), as well as the photos of Dick Falcon @ the LVCS (click here to see those). Anyone know who that guy in the wheelchair was? He was a cool guy. I talked to him for a bit earlier @ the bar. if you see him tell him I says What's Up! :-) Glad to hear all the positive feedback from everyone about the new look for the website. It is very much appreciated. This is the calm before the storm, as the Shakedown is coming up this weekend. The New Bomb Turks and Tex And The Horseheads are NOT playing, but that's OK. The line up of bands that are still playing kills. This shits gonna be Epic people. You do not wanna miss out on this.
If you're in any way, shape or form supporting or participating in that Vegas Rocks Best Of Awards Show, then you are truly, truly, a lame ass. Pay To Play awards shows? Gimme a fucking break. Making the bands buy tickets to an awards show that they're supposedly nominated in is just beyond pathetic. The 2 idiots responsible for that ghey ass lame magazine should just go fuck themselves in the ass while lying to each other about how they used to be cool back in the 1980's. Fucking assholes. What do they know about the Punk Scene here in Vegas, and why do you bands who are nominated in any category give a shit about what that magazine thinks of you. Why would you seek approval from the audience of ghey ass poseurs who read and support that magazine? Weak guys. Really, totally, weaksauce. If only that magazine would close, like Wasted Space just announced they are going to, then the Scene here would be a better place to play and support. Maybe. Anyways, everything's updated. Lots of new old stuff added. Browse around, comment, look, read, listen. Enjoy!
