Round Eye show at Will’s Pub

Friday there was a show at Will’s Pub. That, I’m sure of. There are photos to prove it. I know I was there because I took pictures of odd looking lesbians, and I had a shot of Fireball. Then I remember a bunch of people dicking around and socializing for an hour. Typical Florida show.
Midnight rolled around, I was eight IPAs deep and our ride was leaving… So basically I missed the show but got to see chubby girls with no makeup… It’s funny being that drunk and the women still don’t look good.
Anyway, Manny tells me the show was great and yet again a show review is ruined by craft beer.

And here are some weird lesbians with no makeup, I didn’t understand, and it’s not because I was drunk.

Introducing “Butt Rock” and Terminator 2 s/t Part 1 (2012)

I am announcing a new genre to the world; Butt Rock. I don’t remember where I found this band and it sat on the back burner for quite a while, but once I started listening to it I immediately envisioned the band giving each other eyebrow piercings with a safety pin in a single-wide trailer while blasting Pantera.
A trio out of Denton, Texas playing a sludgy, doomy form of hard rock. While they are on Metallum this is a case where I have to disagree with the Metal Archives. This isn’t metal.
The seventh song starts off with a sorta catchy bass riff, which is basically the same riff that two previous songs started with, then there is a pause in the middle of the song to solo that same fucking riff for a fourth time! Wtf?! Ohh, yeah, with “intense” vocals screamed “passionately” throughout the whole fucking album as if these clowns listened to way too much Limp Biscuit and Korn at some point and now perceive that distant memory as their own creative ability.
This is Butt Rock in all of its glory and the only really positive thing I can say about it is that the production is pretty good, thus earning it a rating of 51%.

The Kills- Rodeo Town (2004)

Here again we have a YouTube only post, but this time it seems that the artists themselves don’t want people listening to their music.
This couple, playing emotional rock… yeah ok whatever. Haven’t they been living together for like a decade? It’s just lame for them to be playing that type music, and with a drum machine, of course.
The pictures that come up during this song go further to explaining what clowns these two are, some British butt-pirate and some chick from Florida who probably thinks she is special and cosmopolitan because doesn’t live in Florida anymore.
I listened to this because I saw that Coyotes in the Room covered this song, but once I saw those lame photos I just had to post something. I mean really look at these two; imagine what they must have looked like while posing for those pictures. You can hear them thinking how cool they are and how envious everyone is of their coolness.
They are so cool they gave each other names, and they tell people about it as if it should impress someone with their creativity. I can’t remember what stupid names that they came up with exactly, but something like Hair-Grease-Duffus and $20 Raw-Dog-Ride.
This is just too easy, I’ll stop now.
