i remember when i saw elastica at club 616 in the mid 90s the local band was listed as members of tora tora....they were only wearing jeans and cowboy boots....

Me and sugardaddy went to go see Alice Cooper back in '86 or so..MOTORHEAD was suspposed to open...I made a fucking giant bedsheet banner with my bad-ass rendering of Lemmy on it...some dicktard came out on stage and said "Motorhead will not be appearing due to visa issues, instead, here's Tora Tora!" It was probably the most disappointing thing I have ever heard anyone say...they sucked ass by the way...

Wait outside with bottle & cigarette in hand till Warrant (a.k.a. shit) gets through playing, force my way up to the front to watch KIX, and then run fast for the exit before that stupid band trixter starts their awful noise.

This is the only forseeable way that Rocklahoma could possibly be enjoied, if at all.

Queen Linda has SPOKEN!

p.s.
It might be fun to punch the guitarist for tora tora in the face if I saw him on the way out. I hate that motherfucker!

If you spring for the $350 VIP ticket, you get free beer and food all weekend. Would that help?

Amen. Because they have a song about a fish.

No.

Cheap Whiskey, Pall Malls, and cocaine right before Kix gets on stage is all ANYONE needs to be concerned with at that redneck nightmare called Rocklahoma.
