I'm so glad to hear nothing but great things about that house party gig last night with Unfair Fight and Nomads and some other bands I can't recall right now. No Drama, and lots of people turned out. Good Friends. Good times. That's how it's supposed to be. :-) Oh, and some band full of Wankers and Poofs played last night too, but none of my Friends or acquaintances were stupid or lame enough to go to that farce. Oh wait... yeah they did. How Sad. See what I did there? ;-) And I didn't hear a thing about the Guttermouth show, which is either a good thing or a bad thing. Gotta love this City. No wonder Punk Rock Posing does so well here... heh
Speaking of PRP, they announced the bands playing the sacred Club shows last night, and seeing the line up had me barfing back up my oatmeal this morning. Luckily, oatmeal looks the same before or after throwing it up, so I just mixed it in with what I had left in the bowl and kept eating. Yeah, for those of you who don't see the direction this so-called "Punk" festival is heading in, then you're either ignorant, blind, or stupid, or maybe a combo of all 3. Could someone tell me why Suedehead is playing? An O.C. Pop band? WTF? Or Cashed Out, a Johnny Cash cover band? Seriously? The Untouchables? Really? Fuck off with that poseur one hit wonder shit. And I love Wanda Jackson but seriously, this is supposed to be Punk Rock Posing, not that Viva Rockasilly shit. Is she that desperate for a hipper audience now? Who thought it was a good idea for her to be playing PRP for an audience that, A) doesn't know who she is, and B) could give a shit less? I guess shilling for Jack White will make you do strange and embarrassing things like that. Oh well. And, just like last year, the Beardcore is getting their own special night as well. How cute... fuckwads.
In my haste to post something yesterday, I neglected to mention a few things that were added to the website lately. Uhhhhmmm, let's see, I posted up a bunch of Pictures recently, all of them taken @ the LVCS - go figure. The Guilty By Association photos can be seen by clicking here. I didn't get too many shots off because I had to go set up my drum set, so sorry guys. The photos I took of Mersa can be seen by clicking here. I dig those kids a lot. And the photos of I.D.F.I. can be seen by clicking here. I wrote up a Music Review for that Cash For Clay compilation that just came out recently, and you can click here to read it. There's probably more stuff to mention but I don't remember any of it right now... heh
Tonight! Instrumentalfest '13 @ Money Plays. Go check out the Bitters. I'll probably be at Scarlett if I don't just stay in altogether. Gotta be well rested for St. Patty's Day shenanigans don't ya know! Everyone and their Mom is gonna be @ the Pennywise / Anti-Flag show @ the House of Booooo's tonight, and that's just sad beyond belief. Flat brimmed hats are mandatory. If you're up early and find yourself out in Hendertucky for some gawd forsaken reason, the Civilians will be playing that festival thing going on out there, so check them out and support a band that deserves it. If you wanna work off some of that corned beef and cabbage you gorged yourself on, head down to Motor City Cafe and see F.S.P. and Last Rites tear shit up later that afternoon. Should be a cool gig. Try not to break a hip... ;-)
