Tonight: HORSE The Band, Shindig, MOB w/Apes & Androids, and Motherfucker!

It's fucking Halloween you freaks! If you can't find something to do tonight then walk into your kitchen grab a knife and plunge it into your neck. Anyway, here's my plan for the night: First I'm heading to the Gramercy Theatre to see HORSE The Band and Between The Buried And Me! This is going to be an incredible show, especially on Halloween.

After that I'm walking a few blocks north and checking out Shindig, which might be almost over at that point but whatever. Then if I can still walk I'm heading to the MyOpenBar party in Brooklyn, where the mighty Apes & Androids are playing. And don't forget about Motherfucker, that should be pretty awesome as well.

RSVP is MUST for Shindig and MOB:

First Rap Album 1974

Well this is pretty cool; Joe "Jody" Parsley is an 80 year old man who claims to have invented rap. Your first thought is to dismiss him as crazy but here's the thing...he has the album to prove it. Now I know what some of you are going to say "Lightin' Bolt came out with Hustler's Convention in 1973". Well yeah, that's true and while that album certainly influenced rap, it isn't rap. It's more like beat poetry set to funk instead of jazz, Lightin' Bolt doesn't really rap to the beat. He's really ignoring the beat all together and reciting lines over funk. Old man Parsley is very clearly rapping to the beat and it sounds like a slightly stiffer version of Sugarhill or one of the other old school crews. It's not awesome or something I would listen to regularly but I think this guy has a legitimate claim here. One thing though, the vocals sound like they might have been added - which means this could be bogus.

Tonight: DANZIG! + Misfits Mini-Set

Yes, yes, yes! The mighty Danzig rolls into town tonight and he's bringing Doyle with him! And you know what that means right? They're playing a Misfits set!!! I'm so excited for tonight. Although I hear that Glenn fucked up two Misfits songs in Philly the other night but whatever. I haven't seen Danzig since 1994 when they played with Metallica and Suicidal Tendencies (my first proper concert - and a damn good one at that). Tickets are still on sale.

This is kinda off topic but really awesome: Misfits "Rise Above" Live

The Gutter Says "Fuck You!"

So as is my duty to report on Brooklyn related crap I feel it necessary to fill you fine people in on this one. Some friends decided to check out the undeniably good idea of The Gutter - the bowling alley bar in Williamsburg. Here's what happened: there were 3 of them and one had to split early so he paid for 2 games, the other two guys paid for 4 games each.

Halfway through the first game one of the 4-game dudes hurt himself - pulled muscle. He kept playing through the first game but had to stop 2 frames in to the second game. So while the other two kept playing he approached the counter and told them he hurt himself and could not finish the game. So he asked if he could get his money back, or credits, for the 3rd and 4th game they had lined up. Since one dude was leaving after game 2 and the he couldn't play 3 and 4, he asked for money or credits for the two games he and the other 4-game dude paid for. Reasonable enough, no?

The staff at The Gutters response, "Fuck you", seriously. Instead of arguing he went back to the lane and shared his story. So the other 4-game dude went over to talk to the wonderful staff at The Gutter. He managed to get them to refund the money for the games they weren't going to play anyway. The catch: they had to stop immediately. Which meant they couldn't finish game 2 - game 2 was already paid for mind you.

So they all more or less got thrown out because someone injured themselves on their admittedly "classic" lanes. The poor bastard that only paid for 2 games only played 1 and 1/4 and ended up dropping $50 dollars on overpriced beer, plus shoes and 2 games.

So yeah, I hate when fucking places try to screw people - especially friends of mine. So I thought I'd share with Brooklyn the experience.When you think about it though I guess you should expect shit like this from a place called The Gutter..."Fuck You!"

PC Death Squad - Fuck Metallica!

This is awesome...chugging beer and shredding guitar!!! That's what life should be about in my opinion. Actually if one action can sum up my life at 20 then chugging beer while shredding would be it.

Idolator CMJ Report

This is the most accurate CMJ review/commentary I have ever read. I could not agree more on every single point.

CMJ Starts Today...

So, yeah...today's the big day, huh? I've looked over a few random sheets of shows and what not and I have to say - there are very few bands I care to see this year. I've been super busy lately (as I'm sure the lack of posts indicates) so maybe I missed something. So let's play bizarro blog today, instead of me telling you where to go how about you tell me? Come on, you know my taste in music to some extent. What the fuck am I missing that I might actually give a shit about? I did see a few good lineups but nothing that made me go "holy fuck shit - I need to be there!". Maybe that's because I've seen all the good bands playing CMJ already, ehh...whatever. Let me know if there's anything good.
