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!
