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.
