My Disease has been getting the best of me these past few days, and I'm kind of worried. It's not stopping me from getting things done and manning up to my responsibilities, but still, I'm starting to worry about the cost of what it's doing to me physically. Very strange indeed.
Hey - there is a good gig happening tonight @ the Royal Resort, featuring Local misanthropes Deadhand, playing with Punk Rock's musical version of Don Rickles The Vermin, and also on the bill are the noisy sludge masters Dead Neon. There's another band playing the gig that I'm not mentioning because they have a member of their band who's a little weasel faced liar that I want nothing to do with. God forgives, I don't. I would post the flyer for the gig on here, but I didn't wanna go through the effort to edit that bands name off of the flyer like I usually do, but seriously, it's gonna be a cool gig tonight @ the Royal Resort. If that band wasn't playing I'd be there front and center.
A gig I can post a flyer about is this one tonight @ Boomer's. Guttural Secrete is playing, along with The Genocide Architect (back from the dead and leaving Las Vegas apparently), God's America AKA Seeds Of Rape, and that's about all I can read off of that flyer! LOL Whatever happened to the concept of WANTING people to be able to read who's playing on a flyer? I guess that's as antiquated a notion as bands actually getting off their asses and promoting their gigs... heh heh That flyer might as well be in Klingon for as elitist as it is. ;-) And BTW, that God's America AKA Seeds Of Rape has got to be one of the stupidest band names I have ever heard of. I think someone from Jesus Fuck The Sun has something to do with that band, which would explain a lot. Anyone remember that band? Good. Believe me - you didn't miss out on a thing.
Hopefully I'm feeling good enough to make the trek out to Silverton to see Don Carlos play at the Sway Pool on Saturday. The Man is a Reggae Legend! Don't believe me? Watch this video I took at Reggae In The Desert 2011 directly below all this BS. Him opening up was a bit of a travesty, but whatever. I loved it and I'm hoping he's just as good when he plays on Sat. I also hope I'm not surrounded by drunk Indian girls hooting and hollering like I was last time too... heh heh
Well, I gotta go to band practice - of course. Then bowling. Then maybe a social life if I'm lucky. ;-) I added the Pictures I took of The Fact Remains and Surrounded By Thieves up to the website, and you can click here and here to check those out if you haven't already. It's gonna be a cool weekend - assuming I live through it of course. :-)
