The Rock Show



These are all of the socks I am bringing tonight as I am assuming The Hold Steady are going to rock them the fuck off.

This past month has been like a warm-up for Rocktober - I will have seen Tom Petty, Radiohead, Langhorne Slim, the Foo Fighters, The Hold Steady and this ridiculous red-neck cover band that played all Skynyrd, ZZ Top and Georgia Satellites before randomly busting out INXS' Suicidal Blonde. I mean it is a popular song but in no way INXS' most popular song - and doesn't exactly fit with the rest of the songs they played. Most red-necks don't wear INXS shirts with their Dale Jr. hats. I can hear it now:

"That singer guy died doin' WHAT?"

I guess you might need to know how Michael Hutchence died to get that joke. And know who Michael Hutchence is. I'm going to chalk that joke up as a fail.

Anyways my plan for tonight is to totally be concert guy. Downin PBR and screaming lyrics - I get to pretend to be an indie kid for one day. It's like St. Patty's Day but with tighter jeans.

There was no real point to this post other than the fact that I am going to be too juiced up on PBR's tonight to have any hope of functioning tomorrow.

The last time I had a PBR, they came in scooners as big as your head. A little part of me died that day.

For a minute I thought you were about to confess to us all that you were headed to the Warped Tour.

p.s. indie kids rock, even if it is pretending for a day.

Nom will be lucky to be wearing any pants at all by the end of the night. And then they'll dress him up in a shirt with a collar, and they'll call him Porky Pig.....

Nom is gonna be an indie cowboy on the cross-town bus.

PBR could be the most underrated beer in America.

The Hold Steady will light your socks on fire tonight.

I recommend taking them off if that happens.

Hey, I've seen Tom Petty, too! Um, I'm a little competitive.

Well, Cheers to not functioning...

err, after reading Cohabitant's recent post, you'd probably not want to yell that.

Woohoo PBR! Screams high class like nothing else, oh except maybe autoerotic asphyxiation. But be honest, if you've tried one you've tried the other.

No socks?!?

But what will you wear with your yellow crocs?

How was the show?? We almost went to see Bill (from I Rock Cleveland) dj beforehand but didn't end up making it. . .

Nonetheless, I'm sure some good times were had*

(that is, if The Beachland's AC was actually working!!)

You could always get caught doing what Steven Page was doing... and or who he was doing...

Lauren said...

Hold Steady? Very Awesome. How was the show?

rawbean said...

What's PBR? And more importantly, how was the concert?

Good to see you rocking out!
