sxsw night one. austin. flatass. theres a few2 thingss that im learning alreayd and its only the first night of the musics. first thing is i drink better than you. other think is every bamd thinks therye the shit. last thing is most bands are not the shit.
went over to the austinist party and saw two bands opne was a dyde with his band and he wore a hat cocked over one eye and he played left handed and like the little blue boy in that painting of the same name. if he wasnt queer he was trying out for the team. hiss singing wanst bad but the rest of it was but for some reason the songs werent bad. i think the band was called The Levy.
then The Ark came on. sort of a poor mans Darkness. it was all about the singer. they were from Sweden. then went over to Emos and saw some band that i will etell you about later or never but the dyude was dressed up sorta like hendrix and played the guitar against a wooden pole. oh before that went over to club de ville for the birdland records party theyre the ones who distribuite Tsar or pay off Tsar or whore Tsar oujt or something, anyways if Tsar were here theyd have played their so i saw who were playing in their place and i wasnt impressed som edudes from Okaland called The Time Flys.
if i see one more anorexic singer im gonna drink a beer.
got to the hotel to take a leak but these two fratboys told me that Curt Kirkwood from the meat puppets was playing on the roof of the hotel. i was all are you sure his name is Curt Kirkwood? and they were all oh yeah meatpuppets man MEAT PUPPETS and they high fived each other and were all you know the band that nirvana loved so much and i was all, i drink, so lets do a bet right notw, if his name is Curt Kirkwood i will buy each of you fellows two drinks each, and if youre wrong you have to get me a shot of rum and a double Baileys no ice. and they were all bet and as soon as the elvator dinged at the roof the doors opened and there was the sign that said "Cris Kirkood" and an arrow to the packed room.
and thats why im drunk and its just about midnight and thats why i took a bigger leajk and thats why now im headed to the Red Bull House to see Goggogogol Bordellow and i understand a former singer of Janes addiction is going to be on the wheels of steel which is what they say in showbizznes is one night i wont soon remember.
