His bio should be called The Cultural Imperialism of Kim Fowley.

yes - its thursday NEXT

i will be having a raffle for the big 16x20 of johnny thunders that will be hanging at goner... and also one of the ramones - although eric has to remind me which one...

and i will raffle off one of the Day of the Dead posters, too. we didn't make that many of the big ones (20x30)

I just bought 3 sombreros today and a couple of local heroes will be wearing them... and 1 imported local hero will be wearing one too.... and they'll be playing mariachi versions of their songs and punk rock songs... and perhaps "guantanamero"

this will be much fun

1 imported local hero

is it cheaper to get them imported

Like the Mastercard commercial:
Local Heroes:PRICELESS

Join my heroes Jack O, Tyler Keith and their pals and assorted band mates in a one-of-kind acoustic punk rock mariachi thing. Let's convince Twinkle Van Winkle to indeed join them and sing "Guantanamero"

Music still start between 7 - 7:30
before that - a PINATA!! (you all like to hit things, right?)
food, beer and a nice sunny day

I'm RAFFLING OFF a big 16x20 print - so drop a buck and maybe win a big picture!

um, and afterwards --- go see the Dranks
Posted: Nov 1, 2007 11:55 pm

this is the vendor that printed it for us. if you saw it in person, you know just how fabulous the colors and resolution are. YAY Alisa!

the turn around time from this vendor is super fast and they do a great job

My crummy photos are here. Don't know what happened but most are either blurry or dark.
Posted: Nov 9, 2007 9:26 am
 
a few pictures are here: http://punkturns30.blogspot.com/2007/11/notes-from-tour-memphis.html

not of the performance but of the one and only rehearsal that way-fun band had in the alley behind the store's back door...

you will also read of my continuing "how to be in 3 places at once" dilemma or tri-lemma as the case may be and when i published the post, the google ad was for gay friendly car dealerships... always fun those google ads
