i found this video a couple of months ago on a random youtube binge, it gets me really pumped up

i used to listen to wives "erect the youth problem" when i was in my senior year at high school at full volume. At the time i distinctly remember hating my girlfriend, not really caring about school cause i was pretty much done and having tons of fun with my friends.

the kit/wives split was pretty rad along with collab they did with john wiese that they put on a split 12" with moving units.

but ultimately their wives hate police 7" is the JAM. nothing but angst and punk, it was amazing

Twin Lion @ house in murrieta

for those of you who don't know where murrieta ca is, that is okay you wont have to go there unless you meet somebody from there.
We packed 5 people in my truck and drove really fast so we could see tyler's (rapid youth) first show as twin lion, only to find that they haven't even started setting up yet. This is what "safest in bearhugs" looked and sounded like

it was pretty rad, vocals were crazy loud but that is a + considering i can never hear rapid youth live. He played about five or six songs and the dad cut it off. This house show was thrown by some dude who was i guess visiting his family for thanksgiving break from college. Other bands played and tons of kids ranging from 15-2? showed up and people were raging crazy all over this suburban home. Things were going pretty rad until some dude started playing a radiohead song in the living room. I literally felt like i was falling into a montage / time warp through all of their high school memories, i found myself feeling real warm and safe.

and then like most high school/ bro/ wack ass house parties this one took a turn into AMAZING. I heard sounds from the living room like a fight next thing you know about six hundred pounds of dude were fighting right next to mom's fine china SICKKKKK!!!!
cops came drama continued some dude got real mad cause he couldn't find his symbols and yeah it was a great party.

abe vigoda vivian girls love is all nodzz @ the smell

i went into the show as nodzz were playing, they played on the floor and there were a ton of kids so i couldn't see them. they sounded good. abe vigoda was sick as usual, this was probably the first time in a long time that i have treked out to see them, and it was worth it. vivian girls were pretty rad, they sounded really good in the smell. love is all was like whatever, i wish i would have saw them when i was younger i probably would have been more jazzed on it then. it was a very very fun night, i have been missing going to big shows.

by the way, i went to see women last week i didn't post on this because it sold out and tyler rogers and myself listened through the door, sounded amazing tyler has pictures. andy was there we played hacky sack, i skated with tyler and i am going to start skating again when rogers bro gives my board back.

i don't think i am going to the ports ocall show on sunday cause my rad hippie uncle who isn't really my uncle is in town. but tons of big rad bands are playing, and gil is playing with adam lipman. i AM going on tuesday to ports ocall

10-29-08 Mt Eerie with julie doiron calm down it's monday, barr and lucky dragons

the last time i saw mt eerie was when he played the smell last year(or the year before) also with Julie Doiron. we showed up late because everybody wanted food on the way so we missed BARR and Lucky Dragons, i was kind of bummed, i haven't seen BARR in a long time. we walked in just in time to see calm down its Monday, he was on tour with mt eerie along with Doiron. this guy kind of sucked he played one song and after wards went into a 12 minute narrative about how loud the people by the door were being and concluded it with "i guess it's just one of those crowds" this bummed me out considering that there were about 60-80 people sitting quietly in front of him waiting to watch, but whatever i watched a couple more songs until in between another song he started ranting again and i went outside.

Julie Doiron (whom i really came to see)was next, i got a good spot up close. she played about 8 songs and finished with "snow falls in November". afterward she sang along with mt eerie on several songs that make up the latest mt eerie album "lost wisdom". i just got lost wisdom and i can't wait to listen to it more in depth. it was a nice calm night, after Sean got BARR to sell him his record for a couple dollars less we drove home.
