Also been working a little solo acoustic project, spent a few days recording the demo. Just 4 covers for now, until I get my songs done. Ive been slacking in that aspect. But demo is almost...

man, it was great. Bruce was in a ferocious mood, stalking the floor with the mic and shoving people out of the way - at one point hurling the mic stand into the crowd. eeek but they played a bunch of new material which sounded so fucking good. i can't wait for the new record.

Genghis Tron was unfortunately pretty much ruined because of technical issues they were having, but Kylesa rocked the house. they pretty much blew me away - dual drummers, and they ended with a high-octane cover of Floyd's "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"... love

sorry you missed it, man.

yeah, unfortunately. but its still NIN, must pay homage... must go to shows...

my, what a dapper young man you portray in your new pic.

i'm alright. just trying to stay out of trouble! keeping pretty busy with school. i'll be glad when it's over and i can have my life back. two weeks off was amazing to say the least.

what about you?

i'll probably drop off here like everyone else pretty soon so keep in touch via email, ok? let me know when you score a band. it'd be nice to go out and support some new local talent!

i think you could make it there in plenty of time. 9:30 show with two opening bands... here's the breakdown from the Bottle's site:

SPOILERS! (Click to view)
TUE. 11/14/06 (9:30pm; $10)
Witchcraft (Sweden)
Danava
Velcro Lewis & His 100 Proof Band

Swedish dark rock outfit WITCHCRAFT make their Chicago debut here. They'll be playing material from their latest Rise Above release Firewood, one that thoroughly evokes a wide range of underground sounds from decades past. In a review of the record, Dusted exclaimed, "Fuck, can these guys play" and we've been told that those same chops extend to the stage as well. Epic metal ensemble DANAVA will play second, supporting their burning Kemado debut, an album that, according to The Stranger, is akin to DAVID BOWIE seducing BLACK SABBATH, if the relationship were consummated "in a waterbed of liquid LSD."

Ohhhh! I thought it was a sarcastic thanks for my comment pertaining to the Oakland sweep, in which I felt bad because it was supposed to be more playful than 'salt-in-wound'y. Guilt absolved!

yr text made me laugh - glad to see you still got the eye for the ladies even on an early morning bus ride. biggrin
