Long live rock, I need it every night

Voice Your Choice, Rock Club

Okay, it's my week next week (2/10 - 2/16). That means we're playing by my rules. And the rules are, there's no rules. Got it? Good.

Okay, I was wrong about Mooney Suzuki--it's on Feb 14, not Feb 16, as noted in an earlier post. I vote for this show for the following reasons:

1--I have seen them before. They opened for The Hives in New York. It was a high-energy, hard rock show, and the two guitarists placed themselves at considerable physical risk by climbing on top of the amps for an extended guitar solo. Also, the small, balding drummer, who was wearing a beige tanktop, goose-stepped about the stage holding a plastic coiled cobra above his head while this solo was taking place. It was rad. My good friend Matt Stutts can vouch for this, he attended the same show.

2--We haven't been to the 9:30 in a while and I miss it terribly.

3--A few of this band's songs can be heard occasionally in strip clubs, as well as on the Madden Football soundtrack.

Second choice would be either The Deerhooves, who we've seen before, or maybe the Apples in Stereo, although I think Erin's seen them and given them a big thumbs-down.

Note that Mooney Suzuki plays on Valentine's Day, so get your lovemaking in early, then head to the club like a real man would.
