we came in SECOND. or as laura said, "you almost won!"
we got through the first round and were 1 of 3 bands selected to re-rock. then we went down in serious flames to a "pro" SUPERGROUP comprised of Doug Pressman on gtr, Curtis Brown on bass (gold glasses, gold chains--but oh yeah, that's what he's wearing nowadays), some rad dude on drums, and then THIS round two ringer: PRINCESS SUPERSTAR. holy shit. she's like some famous NYC club chick. hot! there was no way in HELL we could compete with that. they ripped a hip hop song and she was on her back dryhumping the air, then waving her arms like you just don't care, all boobs and butt and blond locks. they tore it down! they really did. i smell a signing. we're way too punk for that kind of competition.
so the day was magnificent. jeff jensen rules. he MC'd off the cuff for hours. the judges were amazing. some brutal comments were laid out. harry got mass props both rounds, so his head was grotesquely huge on the walk of shame to passout. i got a well articulated "she hot!", by, i think, connie. doug pressman should be renamed doug (im)pressman. there is no better showman in these parts. crimson sweet kicked out a rick springfield jam, with polly slithering all over the camera. (oh yeah, this was filmed.) there were dogs and babies and bikes and free beer and free bbq. unbelievably fun day. we had a blast.
