Benefit Rock Shows. What more can be said, really? You get the r.a.w.k, you get the strange dirty-antispetic smell of the r.a.w.k. club, you get the self-satisfaction of having spent a millisecond or two maybe thinking about someone else, and you can have fries with your Dewar’s (cuz specifically I’m talking about The Echo here, sirs).
In Brief: this coming Wednesday, the 16th of April, come have your face melted by Afternoons, The Pity Party (that’s MY band), Karin Tatoyan, and The Franks at The Echo WHILE giving back to the community. Don’t you just love phrases like “giving back to the community”? I mean, what did the community ever give you that you owe it something back, exactly, except a hard time finding parking and disgruntledment at the post office?
But seriously, Reader, Sweet Relief (the cause to be benefitted by said r.a.w.k. show) is an awesome organization that offers financial assistance to musicians who can no longer play music. I mean, I’d rather be dead than not be able to play music, but that’s just me. Was that out of line? I was gonna write something like, “And at the rate with which musicians party, most of them end up needing this service.” (Weak.) And I was even thinking of typing the following: “Sweet Relief is an awesome organization that offers financial assistance to musicians who can no longer play music due to illness, disability, or plain fucking laziness.” See? Very off-color. Almost completely innappropriate. I shouldn’t be allowed to do this, LosAnjealous. These words will one day come back to haunt me. But I’ll have really good lawyers then, so bring it.
I gotta wrap up this uninspired promotional blog posthaste, alright?So below is the bottom line. See you Wednesday, anyway, Lovers.
