Just a bit of friendly advice: If you ever find yourself in the vicinity of Liz, the brand spanking new bass player for Unfair Fight, and she's drunk, don't ever, EVER, tell her that the new singer from Turbonegro sucks, because, as Hank found out last night, she will fucking crack you one something proper and dot you hard as fuck right in the eye! hahaha Yeah, the gig last night @ the Beauty Bar was pretty cool. Lots of Friends just chilling out and having fun. I got there just as Audacity started playing, and they were good, with Mr. Bobby Franks, Esq. summing their sound up perfectly by saying 'they're the O.C. sound from 25 years ago'. He also said they usually do an Adolescents cover, but alas, tonight, they didn't. Boooooo. I wasn't really in the mood for any more covers though, as I had just escaped from that Bonfire gig @ the House of Booooo's. Bonfire is an AC/DC cover band with a spot on Bon Scott doppelganger that, for some reason, plays the entire Back In Black album after a pretty rocking opening set of songs (Sin City - Rocker - Whole Lotta Rosie - Beating Around The Bush) I was just like YES!!! and then, they play that Back In Black shit. The name of the band is Bonfire, not Brianfire. I would of never went to the gig if I would of thought even for a second that I'd be hearing some Brian Johnson shit. Boooooo. Is there not enough Bon Scott material to fill out an entire set? Yeah, exactly. Seeing the Bon Scott dude singing like Brian Johnson was just too much for me to take so I threw my $9 beer down in disgust and left. Don't fuck with my Bon Scott man. AC/DC are a band near and dear to my heart. Don't fuck with them. :-)
So yeah, where was I? Oh yeah, Beauty Bar! lol Everyone and their Mom was telling me to check out King Tuff. I had no idea of who they were, but SOMEONE who's opinion I really trust told me that I would like them. They're real Poppy - You'll dig them she said and damned if she wasn't right. They sounded like a cross between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and oh, I dunno, Wire? Magazine? Something like that. Jingle -Jangle guitars with a catchy Pop beat with some pretty impressive falsetto vocals thrown on top for good measure. I dug 'em. They announced that some song was about being stoned or something and I liked them even more. :-) Hank told me they were on Sub Pop, which was a bit of a shock because 1) They didn't really sound like a Sub Pop type of band and 2) I didn't even know Sub Pop was still around! LOL I went to buy a record from the merch table when King Tuff were done playing, but they were selling 'em for $20 each, and Pam told me I could get it from the Sub Pop website for $12, so that's what I'm gonna do. ;-) Yeah, after Hank got punched in the eye I figured it was as good a time as any to get the fuck out of there, so I made a beeline for the back door and stumbled my way back to my car and made my way back Home. I had to get some rest. :-)
Enjoy your weekend.
