Live blogging the Victory Records Showcase
@ Mojo 13 this afternoon.
(in reverse order, duh!)
BILLY FROLIC (is):::
everyone was very nice today i shouldn't be such a hater (maybe?)
shows over get the eff out
been drinkin red bull all day in the metal spirit WIRED
what's worse than synchronized head bobbing....unsynchronized head bobbing
this singers got an 'all access' tag wrapped around his neck like he's fuckin bon jovi at the spectrum
i wonder if john the sound guy dislikes this as much as me...
purposeful synchronized head bobbing! (not cool, fellas)
again with the vocals (bbbrrrrrooooooaaaaaahhhhhhhoooowowoow)
tempted to steal last bands cd but that is wrong and would i really ever listen to it anyway?
32 slices sold, eaten by me (4), or given away (2)
i think scott from american idol might be in this last metal band of the evening...oh wait he can see
pizza sales a moderate success!
every musician is a businessmin (apparently) except for me (obviously)
wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for every band doing the same god damned thing
again, kind of a great, amazing band with broaring ass throaty, screamy vox...
and these guys have boxes upon boxes of merch to unload as well as giant cloth signs with their maidenesque band logo
in typical lame fashion, the crowd is about half as large for the later playing touring bands than for the earlier local bands...
all these singers think they're fuckin hitler (without the racism, hopefully) (just the arm motions and self seriousness)
wretched (band's name)
touring band time..will try not be judgemental...but the two giant expenive looking cloth banners serving as a backdrop do not bode well ...
touring band time
chatting with the tink (yes!)
hoping no one attending this show or playing it ever reads any of this (and thinking maybe i should keep my priggish thoughts to myself ...
also wondering if the vertically challenged little guy fronting the last band could be classified as a midget
wondering what these kids would think of the headies...
two more bands, after this, the 4th (or perhaps even 5th) band?? oh dear.
christian death metal... that's a thing?
eat more pizza kids!!!
then again, there could just as easily be 5 punk bands taking the stage today that i would hate as much or more....
is metal more welcoming of nerds than punk rock? (apparently, yes)
is this the theme from shaft?? (no, it is not)
my opinion for every nice band of gentlemen that has played so far has just SKYROCKED now that the ASSHOLE touring bands have arrived...
in reality all these bands kind of rock, but to a 't' the vox are terrible
how many different ways can u say this band sucks?
i think these kids are down with the metalcore cause they think its more aggressive and subversive than the punk rock...but i just don't ...
dillinger escape plan makes these bands look like little girls (not to mention the headies)
shorty still hawkin them shirts
is twilight a band?
pizza endeavor..one slice from breaking even!
four more hours...somebody plz come and medicate me.
i never before so directly drew the line between being a 'posuer' and 'posing'...these guys are hardly even playing...just making faces ...
laziest. metal. band. evah
this next band is likely called 'pomposity'
feeling like i'm @ a project unity show....ugh
who here is selling weed??? (anyone????)
in the mood for el tap tacos, but this pizza ain't gonna eat itself
chunka chunka chunka!
after telling me that one time, in 2007, he came here and bloodied up a dude's face in the mosh pit (i believe him)
just had a 10 year old tell me he is losing money on the Flyers loss
i liked the von kull set, truly i did...again though, with me on vox they'd be a POWERHOUSE
do u guys think maybe i could do an acoustic set between bands, fellas?
are u down with the tink, baby?...well u better get down
the show has now officially begun...with the arrival of....
at least your septums not pierced
so....black eye makeup....
would u like a piece of pizza?
are u on facebook?
do u have a mailing list? not the band, you...
does this band have a myspace page?
do they make u sit in the corner @ every show?
so how many shirts have u sold?
to their one shirt merch table..
if i was unmarried and 10 yrs younger i would have like million funny things to say to this poor girl one of the bands has relegated
novelty is in the eye of the beholders
if yer gonna do it...do it FASTER
music is a business??????
crowd is mixin it up! i love it...
kinda like having a retarded twin brother u don't love
its crazy how foreign this scene is to me, and yet how similar it is to my own
these hardcore kids really like the flyers
3.) von kull (and i mean this as a compliment) (though technically, they haven't started playing yet...very nice gentlemen though)
2.) von hayes
1.) von count
von kull- 3rd best 'von' band in DE
double bass drum!!!
buy some pizza, bitches (before i eat it all)
paging the paris bros (circa 1997)...somebody needs to get this crowd MOVIN
where is count von count when u need them?
wishing i'd gotten someon pregnant @ 13 so i could have a 15 yr old to bring to events like this
second dan stansky look alike in as many days (what is this world coming to?)
not to push the point, but i'm not really sure u can call that 'vocals', buddy
needs longer hair
gauntlet is FREE all day, motherfuckers
world class hater (i am)
i think the first bands bass player is having an epileptic fit
this exercise is fascinating
these bands should all replace their throaty, screamy singers with ME, and then we'd be on to something
brendan...this event is @ the mojo 13 bar in claymont, de...apologies, but direct response via mobile device confounds me
exists (alone) in the new paradigm
good turnout...all ages shows kind of rule...except for the mediocre music and the fact i'm working and thus can't leave
ordered some pizzas to feed these cheap no tipping kids @ a profit
these fancypants kids are all singing along to songs i ain't never heard
live blogging the victory rex showcse @ mojo 13 that i'm working
