We like field trips, and we really like having people freelance. So with that in mind I went to the Planned Parenthood Rock Your Body Politic last Thursday, dragging along an old editor friend of mine in hopes of getting new opinions on things I was ill-equiped to have a valid opinion on. I can tell you about the music, I can go on, and on about how Aaron Eash, of Giggle Party, was as on his game as I’d ever seen him. How he underwent a full transformation on stage, evolving from a quiet and friendly guy, to some type of Carnival Barker/hip-hop hype man hybrid, that worked the crowd into a ruckus, by not only playing his guitar behind his back, but doing so for most of the set. I could tell you how the professional approach Young & Brave took to the stage further cemented my belief that the band is on its way to bigger things. Hell, I could tell you about new Happy Bullet songs, crossdressing Lady GaGa impersonators and how the Girl in the Coma crowd resembled an issue of Love & Rockets.

Rundown: 8/31 to 9/6

31 Aug

I am trying to figure out weather or not gambling on the LLWS makes me a bad person. Yes I won, and yes when I made the wager I did so with the caveat that I would donate 10% of any ill gotten means toward my local LL organization. But, I still wagered on the achievements of a group of young men therefore making anything they accomplished cheapened in my eyes. Instead of respecting, and appreciating the feat it would always be that time I won, or lost money on the LLWS.

Though to be honest letting the winnings ride on the Bears pretty much answers that question, and letting it ride again on the Texans proved that it’s really not even a question at this point.

Anyway it’s free week in Denton, and that means shows galore, including a massive show we’re throwing on Saturday. check it out after the jump.
