'Twas the bestest weekend EVER, and that's no April Fool's Day joke! That girl is beyond everything... :-)
I was watching the Hudson Falcons play, giving it all that they had to a super appreciative audience, standing there wobbling around on one leg, because earlier some drunken jackass sent me flying into a drink full of tables during the Civilians set, a set that the Civilians just fucking slayed at playing BTW. I'm So Happy never sounded better. :-) Anyways, I was watching the Hudson Falcons and I was just reveling in the glory of the past 72 hours. I was tired, sore, drunk, hungover, hungry and brain dead and barely breathing. 24 hours earlier I was watching the Gears play to a room full of no one, but that was OK, because the band sounded PHENOMENAL, playing everything you'd wanna hear and more, including my favorite songs by them Wasting Time and, of course, I Smoke Dope. The band that played before them, Galaxy Express, from South Korea of all places, were infuckingcredible, playing this high energy, Punk Rock Soul Psychedelic conglomeration of musical yumminess that was something breathtakingly beautiful to behold. You really should of been there to see them. You truly missed out. And I finally got to see the Seriouslys with their new drummer, who is like, a zillion times better than their old drummer Emma. They sounded great and I bought a CD from Xtal after their set, which, I think she told me has been out for a year or so now. Boy, do I feel stupid. :-/
The surprise band of the night, the Aggravators (or the Aggrovators, depending on the spelling on the flyer or from the band itself) were really fucking good too. Made up of a bunch of Local Musicians both young and old, and lead by the Legendary Danny Breedan himself on vocals, they played a set of Raw and Dirty Punk Rock N Roll that was pretty damn impressive. I liked 'em. And opening band the Tinglerz killed it, as they always do. Those guys need to get a recording out like, as soon as fucking possible, I swear. Yeah, it was a great night and I think that all 20 people who were there had a good time... I think. Don't really matter anyways, because I had a blast. I think she did too. :-)
48 hours earlier I'm barely out of bed at the crack of 6 pm and The Bassmaster General Jeremy is knocking on my window, waking me up with bottles of Mangria in his hand and tickets to see Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew live @ the House of Boooooo's. I had nothing better planned, so I got dressed and off we went. Adam Carolla is a funny motherfucker, and all those glasses of Mangria definitely made him even funnier. Dr. Drew is still a doosh though, and we saw him wandering around the venue before the gig looking like he was trying to find a way in or something. Fun night that I don't even remember ending. I woke up the next morning regretting all that Mangria from the night before, that's for sure. That stuffs got a mean bite to it. It was a good way to kick off the weekend, to say the least.
Everything's updated. I've got all sorts of stuff to post this week - Show Reviews, Music Reviews, Pictures, Videos, when I got the time to do it, but I don't know when or where that's gonna be. Patience is a Virtue, and Good Things come to those who Wait... or so I hear anyways...
