Posted: Jul 25, 2008 2:21 pm
you're right....it says Guns on the Run, Squared Off plus guests
Posted: Jul 25, 2008 2:21 pm
when scott winland asked me about it he told me he had talked to murphys
Posted: Jul 25, 2008 5:20 pm
what is up?
Posted: Jul 25, 2008 5:21 pm
throw this all-time rock blowout to the Buc then!
Posted: Jul 25, 2008 6:11 pm
april was this yours or amy's?
Posted: Jul 25, 2008 6:29 pm
it's not me....i am not booking any shows for awhile so i can concentrate on school. i exchanged a few emails with scott about it about 3 weeks ago.....i think he said he had already talked to murphys about holding the date. sometimes things get double booked though when it goes through the internet. doesn't the bucc have regulars playing mon-thurs? maybe try p&h? they let a friend of mine book a show the previous thursday.

Yikes!! Are we out of a show?? bummer!! and as for earlier, yup The Electric Shadows from NYC. we'll be on tour together.
Posted: Jul 26, 2008 8:14 pm
hold on... maybe The BUC is open... awaiting emailage....
Posted: Jul 28, 2008 7:01 pm
shit looks like buc is bucked.

shit, early show on thursday FOR THE KIDS (or old timers?) ? 7-10 pm???

any other days you can swing in?

I don't see any reason why this can't be done...

Posted: Jul 28, 2008 8:29 pm
we should be able to do it early if y'all want to, it would be better for me and tommy and cort and jd, i'm not sure of scott's schedule right now, but i think he gets off at 6:00
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 9:43 am
if the touring bands wanna do it, this could be an epochal moment in early memphis rockism!

could we get old fogies out who loved SLADE and might like Apache if they know they'll be home by 11pm? and... bands have to go ON, mang! like, go on!

7:00 - 7:45, 8:00-8:45, 9pm-9:45

and then get out of the way for the next show!

i mean, it's just so crazy it could work! eat a burger for dinner and catch some rock n roll!

This should be happening on a regular basis, IMO. I don't care where, but Murphy's is my pick. Or perhaps next door, serving coffee and other non-alcohol? And if the old-timers need that whiskey shot, well, it's just a few feet away....

(hint, hint, wink, wink, however you do that on the internet...)
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 9:59 am
serving coffee

Dear Memphis Venture Capitalists,
I've been talking at you for a while now. Just give me the goddamn money.

Posted: Jul 29, 2008 2:54 pm
Apache is waaaaAAAAYYYYY down for an evening show!!! Let's do This!!!!!!!
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 2:59 pm
benny, is this alright? it would be a bit of a busy night for someone

carlos, go dranks first, electric shadows, apache, or whatever you wanna do
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 3:40 pm
sounds good to me.. Were just stoked and down for whatever!!!
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 4:08 pm

yeah, that lineup might work... we just gotta get things going... was thinking

set up 6pm
7pm electric shadows
8pm dranks (locals)
9pm apache

but if dranks could get the show rolling that would work too.

we can bill it as early bird special-

will this work benny? it won't run off dinner-time drinkers to have a cover from 6:30 til 9?
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 4:11 pm
i just figured 7:00 was the worst slot, and the two later would be more covered by people coming in on the front and back end, but i don't care
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 4:44 pm

We'll do it in 12 minutes this time!
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 5:50 pm
i think set up and break down would take more time that we got? if you're down for the 7pm slot then yeah

bruce- i thought maybe putting the "known" band in the middle might keep people there...

how about staags / electric shadows / dranks / apache?

too much?
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 6:24 pm
Gettin' with the crew now. Two are in, but we normally practice on Thursdays, anyway. Should be good to go!
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 6:35 pm
it's gotta get it on and never stop! I love it!
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 6:49 pm
Here's one paying customer's vote for an early show. Or a lot of early shows.
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 7:19 pm
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 7:42 pm
i'm down, they can either use my drums or maybe i can use theirs
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 9:13 pm
Posted: Jul 29, 2008 10:01 pm
Are you pumped?
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:00 am
consider it done.

bring the rock...

Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:25 am
awesome, thanks benny

so it's on with staggs? i just realized i have a final that starts at 5:30 but should be there by 7:00, any lateness we will take out of our set
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:37 am
Everybody's said "FUCK YEAH" except Luke. No words from the potentiator & slider master. Everything tells me though, that unless he's got some crazy gospel/free jazz/sure-I'll-build-your-studio gig somewhere in Toad Suck, Arkansas, he's all over it. But he better have a fucking knife. Otherwise, there's a beer penalty.

Enough about our shit. Pretty excited about this gig, really. Imean, fucking YES! is playing!
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 11:15 am
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:26 pm
take that lateness out of your 14 minute set? i dunno man...
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:26 pm
Posted: Jul 30, 2008 12:37 pm
Our record set time is just under 14 minutes. Got to beat it. It's a race!


Believe me, I have been!
Posted: Aug 2, 2008 7:48 pm
it's on the book at murphy's i dropped of flyers last night

Spell our name right next time Mehr.

Spell our name right next time Mehr.

oops, not my doing, but it's fixed now.
Posted: Aug 11, 2008 1:45 pm
Yep. That's the Staags.
Burning bridges since 2006.
Posted: Aug 11, 2008 2:24 pm
It's all good. I certainly don't want to be responsible for a bunch of slutty-hot U of M co-eds going into Spin Street asking for the new record by the Staggs, instead of the Staags.
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 4:20 pm

The "later" bands ain't playing- so take your time wif yo' sets if you prefer.

You've got til 3 am...
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 9:55 pm
all right. dunno.

two shows?

we've gotta do the early deal. showing up at 6pm and waiting five hours for the first band is too much, even for memphis.

stick to the program?
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 10:48 pm
YES, we are planning the same times, we advertised early, we will play early.
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 11:02 pm
Bring record money!
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 11:04 pm
you mean like world record money?
Posted: Aug 12, 2008 11:09 pm
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 12:31 am
GREAT! spread the word!
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 8:28 am
we will play early.
6:55 on the dot. Thanks for the fix Mehr.
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 1:31 pm
so what time will apache be playin? i've got derby practice from 8:30 to 10:30, but i can cut out early if need be...
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 6:37 pm
6:55 Staags
7:30 Electric shadows
8:30 Dranks (locals)
9:30 Apache

Posted: Aug 13, 2008 10:00 pm
you've got plans? cancel them!!!
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 10:06 pm
looks like i *am* canceling my plans so i can go to the show! heheh. :)
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 11:24 pm
Attire will be Summer Business Casual, but please try to refrain from "cargo" pants; socks must be worn unless wearing topsiders.
Please make sure your belt matches the shoes.
Posted: Aug 13, 2008 11:46 pm
19 hours, 9 minutes until showtime!
Posted: Aug 14, 2008 1:05 am
I can't fucking wait!
Straight Outta Work!
Posted: Aug 14, 2008 1:11 am
Can I still say "out the hizzy"?
That's still legit, right?
Posted: Aug 14, 2008 7:33 am
