Many apologies for the lack of updates. This could be blamed on the following:
1.) I'm a lazy, good-for-nothing drunk.
2.) I moved and did not have my nerdbox hooked up to the internets until just recently.
3.) Bawitdabadabangdabangdiggydiggydiggysaidtheboogie, said up jump the boogy.
First and foremost, our summer was enjoyed with a slew of great shows and excessive alcohol intake. Here's a bunch of pictures and video from all of them. Enjoy, or don't.
There is no video or photos from the Decency Rally as of yet, so stay posted.
In serious news...
Last month, our friend, Tony Lorenzo, was senselessly attacked on the corner of Richmond and Bird on the upper west side. The stupid bullet found its way to his spine. Tony's recovery is coming along so well that he's already wiggling a toe (Kill Bill-style) but there is still a long way to go. On Thursday, December 1st, we're throwing a show to help raise the money to help him through his recovery. There will be raffles and bands, such as : Vile Crocodile, Andrew J Reimers Country Punk Extravaganza, Aircraft and The Merchants.
Along with that, a few bands that were around circa 2006 have all bonded to get back together one more time for yet another benefit. One of these bands being my(Dave) and Bryan's old band, Rivalry. The show is at the Mohawk Place on January 28th and will feature performances from : It Dies Today('Caitiff Choir' Lineup), Infamous(Reunion. Current - Rhinoceros, Chosen Ones, Goodbye Cruel World), xTOTHISDAYx(Reunion), Rivalry(Reunion. Current - Vile Crocodile, Andrew J Reimers Extravaganza) and BESTOWER(Buffalo brutality. Check 'em the fuck out, for real).
I'd like to take this moment to say how amazing it is that even under such tragic circumstances, we as a small community can all come together in support of one of our own. It's truly an amazing thing and something I am more than proud to be a part of. Though this city(from the outside) may be viewed as a pro sports-disappointing, freezing, economic shit-house, we have something really special going on here.
Lastly, in between both those benefits, we will be playing a house show in celebration of our dear friend, Cody's, 30th Birthday. This party will be held at Mt. Zion(corner of Elmwood and Forest in Buffalo) and will have kegs, pizza and performances from both us and Lewd Dewdz.
Thanks for tuning in.
