Long live rock, I need it every night

Who's Coming?

Who's coming, you ask? Rock's coming, spewing its hot, hard-driving spunk all over the waiting face of the Washington DC metropolitan area. Fetch the fluffer--Rock is ready to go again.

Some highlights:

--Kristin Hersh, Iota, April 26: former Throwing Muses singer in a small venue, could be cool.
--Dr Feelgood, Jaxx, April 27: Motley Crue cover band. A good reason to finally visit Jaxx.
--Peter Bjorn and John, 9:30, April 30: more Swedish cultural imperialism.
--Chris Barron, Velvet Lounge, May 11: who, you ask? This guy:

Okay, this is the best pic I could find, so I'll just tell you: it's the goofy looking guy from the Spin Doctors

--Arctic Monkeys w/Be Your Own Pet, 9:30, May 16: I'll go to this one just to throw shit at Be Your Own Pet. I am publicly challenging their Gabe Kaplan bass player to a fight. Fucking pussbag.
--Huey Lewis and the News, Wolf Trap, May 31: Perhaps this man will be in attendance.

Patrick Bateman

--Long Blondes, Rock and Roll Hotel, June 7: I still maintain that this band will be huge, driven by the adoration of the My So-Called Life crowd.
--Asia, Birchmere, June 26: original lineup.
--Morrissey, Wolf Trap, July 2: Miserable Morrissey, as Weasel used to call him. What better way to celebrate the 231st birthday of our optimistic, forward-looking country, than by listening to this mope?

I love the "Who's Coming" feature. Makes it much easier to lobby for certain shows. The D-Plan and LCD Soundsystem should be excellent. I mock the suckers who lack tickets to these shows.

Oh, I also love the rock as porn star metaphor. Nicely done.

I can get behind the Smothers at Wolf Trap.

The Smothers do that thing with the yo-yos. Plus they're Rock Club related as they made an appearance in "The Kids Are Alright", where Keith Moon set off his drum-bomb, which deafened Pete Townhend and turned him into a pedophile.

Potsy said...

sorry, I mean to say, "thanks for your feedback. By the way, wtf is Luke?"
