quintron is a hopeful right now. hold on.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 4:25 am
so this is at the hi-tone...is there gonna be a need for advance tickets? is this shit gonna sell out? it'd be a shame to drive from milwaukee and not get in.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 4:54 am
I highly agree with nick on this one. Depending on where I'm at whether it be in New York or in Chicago, I will definately be attending this show!!! Just let me know how to get tickets. Martel or Jason, I might have you guys buy my tickets if I need too, I mean if that's cool and all... hehe.

Yeah, I'm probably going to be driving down from Toronto for this show. I would hate to drive all that way and find it sold out.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 7:56 pm
we're heading down, arriving thursday nite. Let us all know if there will be a bbq for the goner gang.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 9:13 pm
Hi Jenna, we're coming too. We should work something out for mass exodus. And I don't want hot dogs. I eat 20 a day here. I'm going to Gus' Fried Chickin' and maybe nowhere else. If it's as good as I hear I might even miss the show.

My tenatative plans are this...take a greyhound straight down I-75, sipping Evan Williams the whole way....Once in Memphis, induce puking, so I can keep drinking. Take taxi to said show, shit myself in exitment pure amazment, puke on anybody I see. Get a southern bell of a teenage hooker to suck me off, puke on her, but not necessarily in that order. Pass out under a bush, wake up and eat some Church's Chicken or Popeyes, less I should somehow find myself as Gus'...then get on the Greyhound constipated as all get out. Also since it's Holloween, I have to egg a bunch of shit, shake Ike Turners hand, piss on Graceland, buy Eddie Money a martini, pay homage to bucka whites headstone, sell my soul to a tall black man at a cross roads, eat fried chicken feet in a voodoo ritual, and fuck another black hooker, buy a hot gun and shoot an apple off a mexican farm laborers head...smoke crack, shoot dope, snort coke, smoke a doobey with Ziggy Marley...puke some more, and then get on the Greyhound bus constipited as all gets out.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 10:07 pm
joe, we're gonna fly because it would take too long to drive, missing work, etc. but once there we can all hook up for rock and fun.
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 10:54 pm
In other words, Chris'll be at home on the computer.

No man, you don't know me....road trips are about the only thing I live for.
Chris Alienator
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 11:36 pm
I just spent about a thousand and a half on a guitar I designed...it's not punk...but the only other thing I live for is the guitar, and I got sick and tired of seeing assholes who can't play with nice guitars that I'd give my left nut for....when it's one of the few things that brings you joy...a couple thousand is chump change...if that means I can never be a garage rocker...good!...so I got a bunch of other hard to find good cheap guitars I'm selling off to finance this little excursion.

Chris Alienator
Posted: Jul 28, 2003 11:40 pm
Oh yeah...this too, I'm at work.
Posted: Jul 29, 2003 2:42 am
Is this a one-off show, or can I get my hopes up?
Posted: Jul 29, 2003 3:43 am
is anybody from NY maybe driving out to this?
Is quintron playing? I mean it wont change me wanting to go or not, but the added bonus is nice.
Posted: Jul 29, 2003 6:11 am
i am driving from new york city and will take passengers and participate in any bbq chicken-fueled convoy.
Posted: Jul 29, 2003 6:54 am
ah, sweet. My other option was spend a good amount of time on a greyhound.
A ride would be the best thing ever.
Chris O
Posted: Jul 30, 2003 1:24 am
Going to have to fly in for that...
Looks like they sell advance tickets for some stuff:

Posted: Jul 30, 2003 4:00 am
would the oblivions like the oscars to play too?
Posted: Aug 1, 2003 4:53 am
remember y'all..no guest list & everybody pays DOUBLE
Posted: Aug 1, 2003 7:45 pm
Any word on buying advance tickets to this? If so, I'll definitely make the 4-hr drive from St. Louie...
Posted: Aug 1, 2003 9:02 pm
Did it sell out? I don't see it listed on the tickets page
Alex C
Posted: Aug 1, 2003 11:10 pm
Seriously, if someone in Memphis could give us outtatowners the lowdown on tickets that would be great.
Chris O
Posted: Aug 1, 2003 11:11 pm
I've been writing back n forth with someone at the Hi-Tone and he said he has to ask Greg if it's OK to sell advance tix. Said if so they'll be on musictoday.com by which I think he means he'll put them on this:
which is linked from the Hi-Tone's website but is powered by musictoday.com
Posted: Aug 2, 2003 12:18 am
150 pre-show tickets will be available for outta towners starting this Monday at musictoday.com.
Legba will have tickets for sale and so will the Hi-Tone. Cash Only at the Hi-Tone.

Posted: Aug 2, 2003 12:19 am
Outta towners should go to musictoday.com first!
Alex C
Posted: Aug 2, 2003 12:27 am
Thank you very much.
Uncle Dan
Posted: Aug 2, 2003 12:07 pm
Does anyone know if that site to get the advance tickets is a credit card only deal? Any way for out of town Goners without a credit card to get tix for this thing?
Posted: Aug 4, 2003 5:23 pm
Does anyone know what time today they will start selling the tickets online?
Posted: Aug 4, 2003 6:25 pm
Yeah, i was wonderin' the same thing! I've been lookin' at that site since about 8:30am NYC time... Hoping they would pop up....Along with the August 30th gig...
Posted: Aug 4, 2003 7:46 pm
Be Patient. It will be up soon.

Posted: Aug 5, 2003 7:11 pm
Quintron is a no-go, though he wanted badly to do it. he's finishing his tour with Bob Log up around that time and couldn't make it.

Special guests will be a surprise.

A Reatards reunion would be nice.

Chris Alienator
Posted: Aug 6, 2003 12:30 am
I don't have a credit card...where can I get tickets via M.O?

If I can't get tickets I'll still show up in a drunken and pissed off mood.

Posted: Aug 7, 2003 2:23 pm
get the Cheater Slicks to play the show too.
otto parts
Posted: Aug 7, 2003 7:12 pm
i second that emotion.
Chris O
Posted: Aug 7, 2003 9:58 pm
Cheater Slicks would be killer.

Posted: Aug 8, 2003 9:33 pm
If I am not able to go, I expect video of all bands for sale at Goner.
Posted: Aug 10, 2003 11:42 am
So, seriously; when the time comes, we definitely have to have a goner function. The BBQ at Delilah's in Chicago went real well. I don't know if name tags are necassary, but a gathering of some sort would be nice. All community-oriented and shit.

...not that anyone should feel like they can't wear their goner nametags with pride (gay pride).

Posted: Aug 10, 2003 12:20 pm
What about a black arm band to show solidarity with our fallen comrades?
Posted: Aug 10, 2003 8:14 pm
RP's reunion the same knight...oh what a knaughty knight it would be!!!
Posted: Aug 12, 2003 7:36 pm
Alright! Got my tickets and ready to go! I have one extra ticket and lookin' for some one to share cost on a companion plane ticket from NYC down there... Anyone gotta couch for me to surf on for that weekend 'til Sunday?? (Sorry, I haven't been near a computer for week... Tryin' to catch up on the board) E-mail me!!! altair_8800@ziplip.com
eric o
Posted: Aug 14, 2003 4:27 am
all right, there should be tickets online again (another 100 went onsale today, wed, according to my sources)... give it a shot.

get 'em via http://www.hitonememphis.com

none available in memphis yet.

Chris O
Posted: Aug 14, 2003 6:02 am
Holy shit, plane tickets to Memphis are the same as they are to Europe. What's going on around here...Does anyone know if there's an airline with a hub in Memphis?
moody prick
Posted: Aug 14, 2003 6:20 am
oh yeah, sure is: FEDEX
eric o
Posted: Aug 14, 2003 6:24 am

Sucks for us flying out of here, too.

Posted: Aug 14, 2003 8:44 pm
Eric, when are you guys playing the golden nugget casino?
eric o
Posted: Aug 14, 2003 8:56 pm
it's probably pretty soon. see ya there!
eric o
Posted: Aug 18, 2003 9:25 am
it looks like the hi-tone will be sporting 2 of memphis' finest on saturday, nov 1...



more details coming soon.

with lacey's "white stripes" tribute and all the other hoopla (watchmeeatahotdog.com will be bringing a hot dog cart? can it be true?) ------a great great weekend! parties, drive-ins, music- memphis is WHERE IT's AT!

Posted: Aug 18, 2003 1:42 pm
so, uh, is everyone dressing up or what?
Posted: Aug 18, 2003 3:59 pm
Trash, you gonna be there? Know of a couch I can surf?
Posted: Aug 18, 2003 7:06 pm
what about Graceland, huh? - anybody wanna meet down there sometime that weekend and do a group tour of the mansion?

trash-ola, keep an eye out for me if you're going - it'd be nice to see another one-time nebraskan at the show. Goner nametags, indeed.

Posted: Aug 18, 2003 11:52 pm
I just heard about this, and plane fare is way out of the question... is anyone driving down from the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Vancouver, anywhere)?
Chris Alienator
Posted: Aug 19, 2003 12:08 am
Yeah the cheapest airfare I found was 250 from Kentucky...we're fucking neighbors!..it's because they don't have a Southwestern...I only fly Southwestern....only terrorists and The Osbornes can afford anything else.

Posted: Aug 24, 2003 8:00 pm
My plane fare from the Pacific Northwest was 175.00. Check United.
Chris Alienator
Posted: Aug 26, 2003 12:19 am
I just tried it and the cheapest United gave me was 606.00....is it because it's a weekend....I'm fine with Greyhound, 60 bucks round trip....and I'll only mis one test!
Posted: Aug 26, 2003 6:52 am
Anybody wanna take a chance and provide a hospitable environment for 3 out-of-town strangers after the show? We don't take up too much space...
Posted: Aug 27, 2003 9:22 pm

You guys oughta do t-shirt or 7 inch for the show to give the kids a souvenir of the evening. That cover of "The Jack" would make a good single. If there's any left over sell 'em right here on Goner. Just an idea.

Chris Alienator
Posted: Aug 27, 2003 10:29 pm
I'm on it! but I'm not giving them away...what are you, a crass punk!
Posted: Aug 29, 2003 8:10 pm
I can't freakin' Wait!! I got my tickets already. I'll be drivin' in from dallas, so I might as well spend the whole weekend, then i can hit the lamplighter at least once and gus's a couple of times.Lost Sounds too. That's always a plus. Whoohoo! If you got the Cheater Slicks then they might decide to like you. I freakin' love 'em. That would be a good combo. Too bad about Quintron though.
Uncle Dan
Posted: Aug 29, 2003 10:00 pm
Yes, make up some fucking Oblivians shirts, please!!!
hardly art
Posted: Aug 29, 2003 11:16 pm
yeah, and make one of two for the fat brothers and sisters too. they'll love you for it, i swear.

though regardless, i'm looking forward to a 20 hour drive from boston....

Human Garbage Disposal
Posted: Aug 30, 2003 1:35 am
this may be a moot point,but is ther a way to secure tix w/out a credit card?

i might be able to make it down for this,but i don't know yet....

Jealousy is an ugly thing. Unfortunately I've got another kid due the end of October. Hope you all have a fine time.
Posted: Sep 3, 2003 2:36 am
Yes, yes, fat sisters, jealousy and t-shirts are all fine and good, but I need a place to stay, so's I don't have to drive back to Central Missour-ah all loaded. I make excellent pasta salad.
Help a brotha out...

This weekend is going to be great (that's all-just getting giddy).

Posted: Sep 4, 2003 5:37 am
Joe, If yer comin' let me know. I'll fuckin' go get you a ticket. 901-458-0914.
Posted: Sep 4, 2003 7:00 pm
i've got two extra tickets if anybody wants to claim them, i'll be holding them here in memphis. my e-mail is justicenatchez@yahoo.com.
Posted: Sep 14, 2003 7:34 am
This shouldn't die. What hotel are all the goners staying at?
Posted: Sep 14, 2003 9:52 am
There's gonna be 8 or 9 of us driving up from Atlanta for it and we're staying at the Red Roof Inn. It's gonna be a blast!!
Posted: Sep 14, 2003 8:19 pm
We're shellin out a little extra an stayin at the French Quarter, per Goner suggestion. Sounds Sweeeet.

Posted: Sep 14, 2003 9:01 pm

Posted: Sep 15, 2003 12:01 am
it's an 18 hour drive from NYC
Posted: Sep 15, 2003 3:35 am
c'est nous a le quatre des francais.

For those not leaving NYC, you can have a Halloween nite of Dwarves and Misfits at good/bad in brooklyn.

Posted: Sep 15, 2003 3:44 am
What exactly are you talkin' about? Dwarves? As in THE Dwarves? in Brooklyn??? Elaborate please...
Posted: Sep 15, 2003 4:56 am
also for those in NYC...Clone Defects and the Piranhas with guests on Halloween and Nov 1st...details to come
Posted: Sep 15, 2003 3:59 pm
no, not the bands themselves but instead mayhem and controversy in COVER band form.
Posted: Sep 15, 2003 11:30 pm
Jenna, alright, just cover bands... WHo's in 'em and where?
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 12:30 am
I guess I'm going to this now too! Except none of you jerks know me, so you don't care.
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 12:58 am
So, quit whining an introduce yoself. Jeeze.
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 1:03 am
i would welcome a dwarves cover band but i'm not sure how much misfits will do for me. we need an oblivians cover band, cheater slicks cover band and a cover band of the white stripes cover band... plus the dwarves. i'm goin as danzig and challenging the misfits to a fight.
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 1:20 am
I'm Norah, I live in Chicago, I'll probably piss my pants, cause I'm a drunk.

That's me in a nutshell.

Chris Alienator

Oblivians Cover Band! O.C.B.
Society Paige
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 2:05 am
Norah, I think you're gonna fit in just fine.
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 2:17 am
bullshit norah. everyone knows who you are.


Posted: Sep 16, 2003 4:21 am
"I'll probably piss my pants, cause I'm a drunk" hhmmm...you could be just about every one of us.

the misfits/dwarves men take themselves VERY seriously but in the end it's still just a bunch of juvenile drunken debauchery, like yu'd expect.

Posted: Sep 16, 2003 4:49 am
Wait, Jenna, does that mean that Jerry Only really is gonna be there??
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 5:26 am
hey Alienator,

what does O.C.B. mean? i don;'t understand it cuz i just pissed my pants.

jesus, alienator, that's some freeflowing.

rev_dan, nothing so exciting, I'm afraid. just a bunch of no-name punk louts.

Posted: Sep 16, 2003 8:28 pm
Jenna, I was just bein' a smartass! I mean "The Misfits" now aren't the Misfits. They are a shitty cover band of the Misfits. It's like Peter Noone sayin' that he's "Herman's Hermits". Now the "Misfits" are nothin' more than ol' punkers that are about as much Misfits as some shitty cover band.

***That Oblivians show is gonna be great (if I can finance my trip). Just tryin' to get back to where this post is on the original topic.. hehe. Don't wanna pull an Alienator...

Posted: Sep 16, 2003 9:58 pm
so the oblivians cover band is gonna be called "Old Country Buffet". now we just have to find the talent.
Chris Alienator
Posted: Sep 16, 2003 11:58 pm
When I'm drunk I can sing a close aproximation to Greg or Lemmy from Motorhead...but when I'm sober I sing more in the style of 70's Chilton but probbably more tone deaf.

I have self-esteem problems.

Womb Raider
Posted: Sep 17, 2003 12:02 am
the talent for Old Country Buffet will include "Pot Roast Oblivian", "Homemade Soup Oblivian", "Salad Bar Oblivian", and possibly "Mr. Quiche" on organ.

their true identities will never be revealed as they will appear on stage fully covered in camoflauge netting stuffed with lettuce, carved turkey, dinner rolls, macaroni and cheese, ham, baked cod, hot and cold desserts, and assorted seasonal vegetables.

Posted: Sep 17, 2003 12:24 am
one member of the band will weigh approx 300 lbs and stand in the crowd at every show demanding encores.
Womb Raider
Posted: Sep 17, 2003 12:39 am
hot and cold desserts.. this brings up an interesting point. I gleaned that off the old country buffet website. but what is a hot dessert? like a piece of microwaved pie? or brownies fresh out the oven? and what do they mean by a cold dessert? do they mean room temperature, like a plain piece of pie? or do they mean ice cream and refrigerated jell-o? because if that was cold dessert, do they not have any "medium desserts?" fuck. someone needs to do a scouting report. they don't even have the old country buffet in louisiana.
Posted: Sep 17, 2003 2:28 am
jello or pudding = cold dessert
cobbler = hot dessert
and those pie slices are always under a heat lamp...hot dessert. no medium.
also : hot dessert= scott big shasta rogers
