The show was totally lame. Not a big surprise. I've always hated Westview, it's always so 80's-gay-disco. I haven't been to a show there since at least 8 months ago. I felt like i was too old to be there. And all the strange break dancing kids where there. And there were these two gothed out fat chicks in tight clothes that were really getting to me. The show started at about 9 but we all got there at about 7 to start setting up. I helped all i could and then i was just standing around. The stupid KF kids were "decorating". Raise your hand if you've been to a punk show that had a disco ball and gay-ass streamers hanging from the ceiling. *raises hand* Finally i couldn't take it anymore, i went outside and had a smoke with Jerod and Greg and Greg had some Schnapps in his car and he let me have some. That was awsome. The sign when you walk in the door is kind of a downer: "DRUG FREE, ALCOHOL FREE, TOBACCO FREE ACTIVITY." Yea, awsome. I'm not much of a drunk but i do like my cigarettes. I was only there at all because Cole wanted me to be there. I left and came back in the middle of the Funky Bastards' set. I'd never heard them before, they are totally rad. Jorge is an awsome bassist and it's fun to watch him play. He like jives around and stuff.
But yea, shows are no fun anymore. There's all these wiggers and jocks invading the scene. It's annoying. Killing the Hare's set was good, except they were having all kinds of technical problems. Chris's bass wouldn't stay plugged in, the amp kept cutting out, none of them could hear what anyone else was doing. At one point Chris was leaping all over the place and he stepped on Cole's cord and unplugged him. And it was funny, during Die for Your Government, which luckily was the last song, Chris decided to get up on the drum riser and act like a spaz and he knocked over the drum set and Jerod poked him in the eye with his stick. It was great. Chris either needs to calm down or get a cordless system. He has Hunter-esque moves, it's ridiculous. He unplugs his bass at least once at each show.
At the last minute Just LoFi was added to the ticket. Which sucks because, well, they suck. I mean, they're all good guys and stuff, and the one kid is an awsome guitarist (but i guess i would be too if my daddy had bought me a vintage Les Paul custom when was 7 years old). But they play this awful pop punk. Eric sounds like the guy from Simple Plan, only off key. It's not good times. But that's why they went last, they had to follow KtH's metal set. haha. By that time, almost everyone had gone except for all the junior high headbangers. For some reason they had one of their little groupie bitches standing in the crowd banging on a cow bell. It was fucked up.
So that was dumb, but it was something to do i guess.
Also last night before i went back to the show i did some weird dye job to my hair. Now i have pink roots.
( Have a look.Collapse )
It's kind of hard to tell. Sorry for the crappiness of my cam. Maybe i can get some better pictures when it's daylight.
But anyway, so by the time we got out of that awful place last night, everyone else had gone and Cole had nowhere to crash. So i snuck him into the basement and snuck him out again today. That was exciting. We went to a barbaque at his dad's house today. That was alright. I never like socializing with his parents and their weird friends but there was a lot of smoked meat and brownies. So meh.
And this has got the be the longest post i've ever made. So i'll go now. *runs*
