So the saosin show was so much fun!! prob. some of the most fun we've had in a while..
anyway, the other day one of my hairstyling clients was telling me how her bf works at the spot on thayer st., you may know it as a place to do yoga, but she was telling me that they are starting to have shows with local bands and local artists so it def worth checking out.
There are also some other great shows going to the paradise lounge so take a look at the site.
And get to lupos to see zox and hello mahalo march 8th!
As for me i just finished reading a sweet Andy Warhol autobiography..and im getting ready for my vacation!! I'll be home just in time to meet my friend jason at the middle east to see the spill canvas, and dont forget madina lake at the living room march 19..thats it for now!

So i know i havent written in a while, with the holiday craziness going on ive been kinda busy. With all the holiday shopping i havent been left with much money to go out..so i choose my nights carefully.
Last fri as tall as lions played at the living-room. if you missed the show i sugg. you check out their myspace/website. Also coming up at the living-room one of my fav. bands the sleeping will be there 12/27..and if you havent herd yet the mars volta is coming to lupos soon!! In feb. the foo fighters are coming to the dcu center. I know this is random but the dunk is holding this motorcross event in jan. And if your still shopping for the holidays stop by craftland on westminster..its sure to have some unique gifts for your friends!
Being busy its hard to get in the holiday spirit sometimes..but my friend lauren and i found a way to bring cheer to a couple scrooges i live with. While everyone was at work we went shopping for lights garland and some other stuff...now my friend and i arnt really christmas carol people so we made a batch of "holiday" coffee, put on some at the drive in and some other random stuff and turned the mantel/fireplace into an array of green garland, colored lights, ribbon and holiday cheer haha. Thank goodness they liked it b/c me lauren and annmarie aka tiny tim (b/c shes 4'10") put a lot of hard work into that!
Oh ya i almost forgot..i was reading an article that was saying the reason why we dont have a lot of music venues here or the reason they have been closing is b/c there isnt enough local music to fill ther slots...hmmmm..now that kinda pissed me off...i took it upon myself and found 11,000 pages of bands in ri on the internet..i dont think its an issue of not enough bands. i think people shouldn't just focus more-so on their friends bands or that kinda politics but on all the over looked talent...the bands are everywhere..heck some of the guys that live above me are in some good bands!
And ya know to make money and get people through the door you have to promote..put it out there where people can see it and take advantage of it...people are lazy sometimes and if its not in their face they wont know about it and therfore will not go. Ah that's just my opinion anyway..well good luck with all your holiday shopping and partying!

Things have just started slowing down..finally! Since family is super important to me i decided that b/c my brother has been down in the dumps that i would surprise him with tickets to go see the red jumpsuit apparatus at lupos. He was so suped!
so i rounded up my bro, my cousin marc their roommate mike, D and ann-marie and we all went to the show together..it was just like old times! the only difference is, is that the old murphys closed..and the new one just isnt the same.
Well apparently they are opening a dublin pub where the old murphys used to be and i hear they are going to keep it more of a dive bar!
Also, i have just gotten back from ME a week ago. Lauren and I went up there to see my friend dan (from madina lake) perform at the station..i have to say it was really nice to get outa here and spend some time with someone i dont get to see too much. The city was beautiful, we went out for sushi and had some margaritas and the best part was getting coffee in the am at my favorite place..and going to the drum shop with dan to look for parts for his vintage drum set at home.
Once we came home my friend told me he'd put my friend and i on the list if i wanted to come up to Conn. to see him..so i said sure and dragged ann-marie with me..it was awesome..im so proud of all the progress they have made!!
I havent been out too much b/c i have been working on this painting ive been procrastinating on..anyway..i feel like a change of scenery..so my friend jess told me i could stay with her on the weekends and go out in boston to do something different..hmm..i think i may take her up on that..maybe not every weekend though.
Now that thanksgiving is over..there is alot going on. A chiodos show in Mass. and my friend Chris's show at AS220 tonight!! My first night out in a while! And i have the day off tomorrow....about time!!!

well i have to say ive been getting a lot of flack for A: my writing style and B: my partying....well all i can say is im having fun and giving an insight on some stuff i do lol...i'll start off with my tattoo apt...
i went over to art freek wich now has moved to wickenden st. and let me tell you, they did a beautiful job with the place..its super clean and there is different art splashed all over the walls. needless to say mike of course did a great job!
i have had a lot of late nights..reading..(surprise, surprise) lol..also to your surprise work has been stellar between the last 6 weeks we've had students, parents..and regulars flood the salon...and if i do say so myself im not too bad (lol) made many new clients and quite a few of them said it was the best cut/color they've had! (im stoked)! Like i always say i love having random friends...
Went to the academy concert at lupos. now they recently re-did lupos and it looks better then ever..probably one of the best places to see a show in prov. my friend jesse from canada was in town b/c he happened to be working for them.. so after the show a bunch of us hit up as220 to catch some of the bands playing but we were too late (bummer)...from there we decided to go to my friends halloween party..it was fun, my friend em made tons of food and we all just hung out while some of the guys jammed on their guitars.
I think in an entry before i told you guys about this book i read called haunted RI...well the other night i took my cuz and some friends of mine to west greenwich where i grew up..also home to some of the states most notorious graveyards!!
These roads are seriously scary and dark and when we pulled up to the first one there was a few shady characters hanging out..as we got out of the car these two sketchy looking guys came over and told us to get lost..without argument we left..but the next one we got to walk into and thats the one where mercy brown was kept before she was burried there...apparently after she died she was kept in this shed till the ground thawed out but in the meantime her sisters died and the fam was convinced she was a vampire..so when they opened the shed they found her still dead but her hair and nails had grown such a significant amount the burned her heart and burried her there..crazy huh..needless to say we didnt see anything but it was creepy none the less.
There happens to be a lot of random stuff going on this coming month..and i'll be sure to organize a good list and let ya know.

I no i said i was going to take it easy...and i have been..well at least until last thursday. This is why i love my life....thursday afternoon i get a random phone call from jason (my friend who works for rise against) saying he picked up a job in the meantime for hot hot heat and they were playing a show at the paradise lounge in boston, and if i wasnt busy hed put my friends and i on the guest list!
I was thinking this is really last minute but screw it im going and i new just the friend who would come with me! i ran upstairs at work and told lauren that we were going to boston and explained the situation.
NOW at the risk of sounding completely irresponsible and reckless heres my weekend....we head up to boston just in time for the show and it was fun to see jason and catch up..after the show we packed things up and went to the tour bus for a drink before we hit the bar across the street...and how cute the bus was fully decorated for halloween! me lauren jason and hot hot heat and crew went over to have drinks and chill at T's..after that we all chilled out and had a few more drinks on the bus..well they were suppose to leave at 2:30..that turned into 4:30..and although we all didnt want to go, we had to. i havent seen a 5am morning in a while..sleep was short lived when lauren and i had to get up at 8am to go to the train station.
After work ann-marie and i decided to go to my bro's party up on the east side..it was so much fun! it was nice to see old friends and the second floor apt came down to party (they are super nice) and the beer pong games begun...around 4am everyone found a spot to sleep..and work came bright and early at 8am. So tired..2 words jack daniel's..but luckily i should have been tired but i got some kind of third wind and ann-marie and i decided to grab a bite to eat at tortilla flats then surprise the boys with 2 huge pumpkins a 30rack 2 bottles of JD and some rum..oh ya and a dancing skeleton on a harley and a lowrider hearse..needless to say they were stoked!
so my bro and everyone and the 2nd floor decided to party..around 2am ann-marie got tired so brian and i took her home...
...everyone got happily rowdy ... and a handful of us decided to not sleep b/c we had to work so early the next morning..i lasted till 7am before i slept for an hr. then went to work. Finally sleep! and monday was relaxing but still a late night but finally i didnt have to work the next morning..so i got to sleep till 11..got my hair cut..and since then have just been chiling out.
ann-maries bday is thursday..hmmm.. and who knows what this weekend will hold.
but monday my friend ant's fav. band is playin at the living room wilhelm scream (???) ive never herd of them but i promised him id go cause he cant make it..
