Garbage Boys & Trash Boys? No? Me neither. I completely forgot that this was a story I'd been working on. Maybe I will hop back to it eventually, I think there's some potential here for a nice little middle school universe to explore.
Anyway, you know the drill: I get bored and make fake record covers and post them online, then people "like" them on Facebook and I check who likes them and then maybe later I will "like" one of their links. It's a really fun way to spend your evening. Every evening. Forever.
Right now I am going to rehearsal for my real band, Energy Gown. We have a show in Indianapolis on June 11th, but I don't have all the info just yet. Don't worry, music lovers, I'll get that to you soon enough.
Anyway, sometimes I do these little doodle pages and then put them in an overstuffed drawer, maybe I will show them off online. You can buy them at CAKE fest on June 16-17 in Chicago.
Well it's a debut performance from new Chicago group Energy Gown tomorrow night at The Mutiny (2428 Western Ave). We'll be playing with a pretty great group called Holy Wave from Austin, Texas, and a couple midwestern groups (The Sueves, CRYS). Free! Above is a little taste of what we're up to. below is a little taste of what supergroup Holy Wave is up to.
The Mutiny is a pretty neat rock and roll dive bar with cheap beer and good sound. 8:30pm. Come on.
Up above is a new page from Chinese Rocks. You'll be seeing more pages up soon, as I've figured out the newly redesigned blogspot site and want to have lots of new content on here, now that my cdza video is up online and my big beige face is on Gawker. I'm hoping the anonymous comments will get snarkier, but so far nothing has topped 2009's meanest comment, "I suggest killing yourself forthwith" from the burgeoning Brooklyn Pog Rap scene we were so influential in back then.
