And here is more evidence as to why I weep for the future of the Las Vegas Scene... LOL
Introducing Vegas’ new Minor Threat tribute band
As if there was an old Minor Threat cover band here in Vegas? LOL Who the Hell wrote this? What favor did you guys have to pull to get that article published? ha ha ha I won't read it, just because I'm funny like that, but I can only imagine what's being said in there and what it's all about. What? Slow news day musically? Apparently there was NOTHING else going on this weekend worth hyping up and writing about? Dropkick Murphy's playing for free on Fremont St.? Immortal Technique @ Fremont Country Club? The Happy Campers hibernation gig @ Triple B's? Rum Rebellion @ the Bunkhouse? Nope! Apparently, the only thing going on this weekend musically worth writing about is a puff piece on a cover band. And I know it's a fluff piece because the band doesn't have a gig under their studded belts yet. Fuck I hate the Las Vegas Weekly. This rant is a dig at them, and not at my friends in the band. It's an embarrassment the coverage they give to Local music. How about we let a buzz develop about the band, let them prove themselves worthy, and then write about the band? Does that make too much sense nowadays, having to earn accolades instead of just asking for them?
Now, before the "Hater" comments come flying in, let me preface this all by saying I was a founding member of this group. I loved the idea, encouraged it, nurtured it, was there when it came together, and thought I was the drummer of the band, until I woke up one morning and saw an invite to like the Vegas Threat Facebook page, and I clicked on it and saw that I had been replaced. Oh well. Omar's a good dude, and with him in the band, Vegas Threat can play all the 'cool' places with all the 'cool' bands... cool bands like those shit talking cowards in False Fucks and 40 Oz. Feces. Yeah, calling those losers out by name, because of the threatening shit they're saying about Holly and Scott, 2 Local promoters who's only crime was trying to give some bands a chance to play Vegas. I don't even know either Holly or Scott, but the Interwebz threats and Drama they're trying to bring to 2 people who don't deserve it or want it is too much for me to bear to watch. It's easy to pick on somebody who don't want to fight, but like the cowards they are, those bands won't fight with someone who wants to. Someone like me. I live for this shit. I hate fucking cowards, and those 2 bands, and some of the "fans" who support them, need to be called out on their shit, like the fucking pussies they are.
I want it to get back to them what I said about them, that they're chickenshit fuckwads, so you nosy little spineless weasel fans or friends of theirs who are reading these words, go running off and text or tell them or send them a screen shot of what I've said about them - that they're chickenshit cowards and that their music SUCKS, and if they have any problem with anything I've said, we can discuss things on the Interwebz or personally and go from there, but I promise you things won't end pretty. Ask those hairless nut sacks Homeless Dyke And Chris Piss Stain about that. You want an internet fight, hey! I'm your man! I'm King of the Trolls. You wanna pick on somebody, pick on me you dickless wonders. I fight back. Either on the Internet or in person. So do my friends. What I don't want to do they will do gladly. :-)
