OUR BLOG ISN'T DEAD!
So, I went to blog after our show last Monday night at The Court Tavern w/ Rapid Cities, Kicking Spit, Reaching Away, and Perfect Future. Quite the show! A lot of fun as well, in case you wanna know if I had fun. So I went to sign on Tuesday night, and I was denied access. Hmmm. "Oh well," I thought, "I'll try tomorrow," cause I was about 2 and a half sheets to the wind. So, Wednesday, same shit. Thursday, the same. I'm pressing buttons to get passwords sent to my email, all this boring tech bologna. Then, blogger's tech suggestion is "Maybe you're signed into the wrong email?" Oh, yeah. Whatever blogger. Like I don't know my own login name.
Turns out I had the wrong login name. For 4 days I sat at the computer angry and hopeless, punching keys and cursing. I'm becoming my grandfather, which is scary because he's been dead for years.
But anyway, crisis averted and I sturdy kick to my own ass. Hope y'alls summer is doing swell.
We had 2 good shows last week, one with The Timid Roosevelts down in Ewing, the other with all the great bands mentioned above.
Here's some actions shots!
So how 'bout those action shots taken by Colleen from Period Girls? Nice, huh? That's Steve in the man-t on drums.
SO, SPEAKING OF STEVE, he will be away for a month in England learning shit. Some call it studying abroad. I call it partying abroad 2000 and 0 '10 (girls gone wild UK edition, pub crawling, football lovin, rotten teeth flappin good ol' times). That's a stupid fucking name actually for anything. So basically, we won't be playing for a month while Steve's away. Maybe our buddy Dave can play a show or two but who knows.
Finally, our friend Eric Gieg is helping us finish up some tracks I played drums on back in Feb./March. 8 songs sat in the vaults and now we're rounding them out for future 7'' and comp. tracks.
That's all our boring shit for now. Where's yours?
Take care and pay your fare.
