Fuck the Wristband.

This year, there will be no struggles with wristbands, jumping fences, or sweet talking sweaty biker-dudes into letting you in the back where they load the kegs. Fuck all that. And you know why? Because you're big fucking time, that's why. And you know how?

Well, you better tell me if you figure it out. In the meantime, here's a good start to all the cheap and free events happening here in A-town. I plan to be as far-gone as I can get, as fast as I can get there, listening to some crazy-assed neo-hippy mumbo-jumbo from nowhere places like Ballnuts, MT. Why would I do this to myself, you ask? Because it's free. And 'free' rhymes with... freedom, or something like that, so I am exercisin that freedom to get Free stuff and drink FRee things while eating FREe BBQ and listening to FREE neo-classical-god-rawk-quasi-punk-o-matic... ness. Or whatever. For fucking free. Yes.

Word be bond. You down?

Vans and Anthem Magazine party
Club Deville 2pm – 7pm
$2.00 to get your ass in, drink all the brew you can drink, but you better get there early for three reasons (I was at a Deville show like this last year): 1) they run out of beer. Seriously, they do, and it is really fucked up. 2) the line is fucking long, and they run out of beer after you’ve been waiting in that long-assed line, which will turn you homicidal. 3) I will be there kinda late, and I will be obnoxious and I plan to drink all the beer and act a fool in front of you and your cool friends. So get there early and you’ll avoid: empty kegs, long-assed lines, and my drunk-ass being all stupid on you.
Band highlights: American Analog Set, I Love You but I’ve Chosen Darkness, Controller Controller, blah-blah-goddamn-blah. Free beer, so shut up.
Check the link, punk.

Fucking Emo's. It looks like the possibility for free shows there is diminishing rapidly. They keep moving shit around, and the parties become 'badge-band' parties to keep us goons out.

Well, that's perfectly understandable, actually.
