oh sweet summer 2008 you finally are coming to an end. i can’t tell you how ecstatic i am for this shit year to be past me, christ.
Mill Fest v.5 has come and gone, which means the summer is really over. I had a blast thanks to Math (bastards), Beware, Pandha Piranha, Sub-Bombin, Ear the Eye the Arm, Boston Celtics, William Hale and whomever else performed that I’ve forgot.
September’s coming and I’ve got lots of shows. Sadly the bill for the 15th has changed, Audibel and AIDS can’t make it, so I’ll be playing with Pandha Piranha and the wonderful Worlds of Shit. It’s gonna be a good one. Hopefully the Math show falls through, keep your toes crossed.
I’ve got two untitled new songs that will def make “Dog Buys Pistol“. However I’ve scrapped two more, so that leaves me in the same spot with nine songs. It’s coming, slowly but surely.
see you guys at Hotshots..

I go months sometimes without any shows lined up. suddenly they pile on top of each other. Last thursday I did a VS set with Jason Cosco and Adam Stump of Grab Ass Cowboys opening for the ridiculously awesome Hair Police. And I mean… honestly, thank god Thurston Moore played at the UAG.. the attendance at these noise shows has very noticeably been boosted. Century Plants and Rise Set Twilight did a VS set as well and Bone Parade put everyone in the mood before Hair Police exploded into horrible caveman goodness.
yesterday at the last minute I threw down a set at Hotshots (replacing the failed A Fetish for Ethics reunion), playing four songs off “Dog Buys Pistol” and closing with my devilish cover of Classics IV’s “Spooky”. Some got it, some didn’t.. I mean.. I was opening with psych death dance at a hip hop show. I Chris Brown has been shredding the crunchy synths to add to my death dance shows. Pete Pluto destroyed.. best 518 hip hop performer, hands down. I missed Witness and Oddy Gato.
I’ve got quite a few shows lined up. First (not quite official), word has it I’ll be opening for Mathematicians at Hotshots on Sept 1st. Also on the 15th at Hotshots I’ll be playing another show with Rochester’s Audibel and his metal band AIDS. On the 22nd (also at Hotshots) I’ll be doing a noise set with Jason Cosco and Jeff from If Yes, Then No.. opening for Pinkriverdolphin, Harry Pyle and more TBA. Finally, I’ll be playing October 9th at the UAG with a couple of noise bands from Iowa called BOAR and Make Believe Bombs Blow Up Make Believe Worlds. Also joining us will be, of course Grab Ass Cowboys and Worlds of Shit.
take that shit, smoke it and watch Pineapple Express this weekend fuckers! See you at the Mill Fest.
