Auzstin:

Oh brother. I can't make one fucking post without an edit change.

Anyways...this looks like it's going to be a ton of fun -- don't know half the bands -- so I'm gonna have to start doing some power pop homework stat.

I really want to go to this, but only a month before Gonerfest means probably not going to be able to make it.

WEEKEND PASSES NOW AVAILABLE!

Sorry for those of you who had to make two separate purchases. The kinks have been worked out so now you can buy the whole weekend pass in one purchase.

Also keep in mind that Thursday and Sunday parties are being put together, so if you were planning to fly in, you might want to book a couple extra nights.


Go to ticketweb.com to purchase tickets.



And remember, this is the Boys ONE & ONLY U.S. performance in over 25 years!

The sign outside Beerland was hilarious...
Please don't spit out your bubblegum on our floors.
Ha!

Nikki Corvette, The Pointed Sticks, Gentleman Jesse, The Tranzmittors, The Cute Leppers, and especially The Boys were great!

Too many Nikki Sixx haircuts!

What was up with that fight right before the Boys? We saw some dude get a bottle broken over his head then kicked in the face by said bottle breaker. It looked evil.
Posted: Sep 4, 2008 12:32 am
 
yeah that was wild. I went up to the balcony and it looked like some chick was also knocked out over by the fence.
Posted: Sep 5, 2008 11:45 am
 
That fight was fucked up. I heard a bottle break and turned around in time to see the guy get kicked in the face. Don't know if this is related, but later on during the Boys' set 3 bouncer/bartenders grabbed one of those kids who was waving around the Chicago flag.

I also thought 20/20 were particularly awesome, and let's not forget the Black & Whites. At the day shows The Pleasure Kills and the Powerchords killed.

Too many Nikki Sixx haircuts!

I spent all weekend calling 'em Johnny Thunders haircuts, but yes. Part of what made the Black & Whites so awesome is that they looked so out of place simply by virtue of wearing plaid shirts and relaxed-fit jeans.
