01:13 am - Defining moments in Southern life
You know, for sure, that you live in the Deep South when you go to a local venue for a show, and at one point in the night, a sweaty 300 pound balding man with a ZZ Top beard proclaims that the next one is about "titties, Camaros, and a drag strip."

On the other hand, Gods of Mars (the band in question) FUCKING ROCKED THE HIZZAUSE.


Side note: I have now met xillah, sanityescapesme, zeldappa, and pinballsorceror. I think I'm going to have to give up on jennbennett, 'cause I think she's pretty much in "I'm leaving this shithole town soon anyway" mode. gwynraven? jennafei? Where are you folks at? Let's get some intarweb community going on in this place!

Current Mood: buzzin' like a muhfuh
Current Music: The Gods Of Mars - Camaro Confidence

New Brookland Tavern, in West ColumBubba.

... which, in an odd turn of events, seemed to be largely populated with people over 21 tonight...

I think it is, but I won't swear to it. I'm kinda Just Now starting to get into the local music scene... like as of the past two weekends. So I'm really not the best source of info.

i've seen a lot of good shows at the old elbow room. it's a shame when any good club turns into a dance trap.

i'll have to check out NBT next time i'm up that way, definitely.

Dude, you should definitely come down here next time Gods of Mars are playing, if nothing else. I have a fold-out in one of the couches downstairs, so you have someplace to crash. Pop39's totally worth seeing, too. Anyway, if you're down for a trip sometime, I'll definitely keep an eye for good shows coming up and let you know.

Near Irmo is where I live.
Nightclubbing ain't my thang anymore.
I sincerely must be gettin' old, heh. :)
But, sure, I'm up for a intrawebthingmajigbob!

Yup, that's the current look. The pic from a while back that you're thinking of that was labeled "experimental" was experimental, and that got shaved off. But then I grew it for real afterwards, as a "fuck you corporate America" kinda statement, and also 'cause the chicks seemed to dig it.

Now I like it. =)
