party in balesgurg! see you there
Posted: May 4, 2006 7:10 pm
 
Yeah, we've been talkin about this for a while, let's do this like Brutus.

Sunday June 11th!
Posted: May 4, 2006 7:32 pm
 
Let me get my plan together. I'm bringing the kids!
Posted: May 4, 2006 7:56 pm
 
dale, don't you mean 'the beer'?
Posted: May 4, 2006 8:14 pm
 
Yeah, I meant the beer. Goners like beer...and don't have kids. Thanks Arman. I forgot.
Posted: May 4, 2006 8:16 pm
 
BEER!
Posted: May 4, 2006 8:26 pm
 
Hey, I don't really like derbys but I do like beer. Especially from that part of the state. I have an empty apartment available to me in Kalamazoo for the whole summer. I don't know how they would feel about a bunch of Goners crashing there though.
Posted: May 4, 2006 8:41 pm
 
Most of the Goners I know live over on that side of the state anyway...
Posted: May 4, 2006 8:44 pm
 
Dutch better bring fireworks!
Posted: May 4, 2006 10:59 pm
 
yes. I think the Spits are gonna be in town around then( i think)..maybe they'd like to come..! Crazings.

Holy crap, school bus figure 8s! That sounds pretty damn great.

Hey, Dale & Tahrab...either of you guys and your respective bands want to play an early evening (over by 10:00PM) house show with the Creteens in Lansing on 5/29? I still need one more band.
Posted: May 5, 2006 1:49 am
 
Fuck half the people I work with will be at this thing...
Posted: May 5, 2006 3:13 am
 
Dutch is right, the Spits show is on Thursday the 8th, doiby is on Sunday the 11th. We can bring some wetnaps from Lee's Famous Recipe to wipe our faces off if we sit in the first few rows.

Dutch's firework collection has just doubled in the past week.

Awesome!

It's really too bad that the blackout is corresponding with the memorial day festivities in silver lake state park, oceana county, michigan. otherwise I would be there to celebrate. I would rent an RV. It would contain lamps, and shit.
Posted: May 5, 2006 5:58 am
 
Burning Hatreds crew will be at the derby.
Posted: May 5, 2006 6:32 am
 
Wasn't Galesburg Speedway where Eddie Money was performing in the mid 90's and later in the nite there were monster trucks and one went out of control and climbed into the stands crushing trailer park poofed bangs?

Kalamazoo posse will be in full effect for this outing. 30 packs of Miller High Life Lite or Natural Lite Ice?
Posted: May 5, 2006 7:44 pm
 
hey chris, can you pick up sean and i up at the train station??? we really want to go, we play chicago sat night.
Posted: May 5, 2006 7:46 pm

Posted: May 5, 2006 8:22 pm
 
The night is gonna blow up!!!
Posted: May 5, 2006 8:28 pm
 
please let Dutch open for your show here at the Kraftbrau. His set is 15 minutes and he moistens the crowd.

Dutch or I can give you a ride. The critical headphones down at WIDR work now.
Posted: May 5, 2006 8:33 pm
 
I want the DHOMB in my living room. He can bring his bedroom mess.
Posted: May 5, 2006 8:50 pm
 
CBVB's squallor would feel at home on Staton Island.
Posted: May 5, 2006 9:36 pm

Posted: May 5, 2006 11:29 pm

Posted: May 7, 2006 12:15 am

Posted: May 11, 2006 3:36 am

Posted: May 12, 2006 6:09 am
 
Fuck yeah! We'll get the Galseburg raceway to declare a section of the the stands "the Goner Spot" before the day is through.
Posted: May 12, 2006 8:20 am
 
we should wear our Goner T shirts......for great justice. Somebody Set us up the bomb,,!!
Posted: May 12, 2006 5:34 pm
 
A surprise show by Dutch Hercules One Man Band in the stands would be a stunner too.
Posted: May 12, 2006 6:12 pm
 
no way, hes playing on top of a bus!
Posted: May 12, 2006 6:30 pm
 
With 100's of bottle rockets shooting off in the air I hope!
Posted: May 12, 2006 6:31 pm

Posted: May 12, 2006 9:30 pm

Posted: May 22, 2006 7:58 pm
 
I keep reading this thread's subject line as "Time to call to order a meeting of Magician Goners," and then for a split second I get excited like "ooh magic!" and then my brain corrects my reading mistake and I get sad.
Posted: May 22, 2006 8:10 pm
 
IT IS GONNA BE MAGIC...or at least boozy...
Posted: May 22, 2006 8:16 pm
 
useless is going to saw his wife in half!
Posted: May 29, 2006 5:25 pm
 
My log sawin skills have gone up in the past few months. I was inquiring about fabled The Poop Stick that other care workers use to chop up monster dumps in toilet (dude poops like 1x a week) and was told that The Poop Stick was was under his sink. I look, and for real, a 2 foot long branch from outside is under there.

Event starts at 6:45 Admission is just $12. Come early, last years event was standing room only!! Plus Powder Puff races.

Hopefully we won't have to buy our tickets on eBay.
Posted: May 29, 2006 5:58 pm
 
I guess we wont be rolling into town til the day of now but if we get out of Port Huron by 11am we'll hit Kzoo about 2pm which leaves plenty of time for grilling meat and swilling drinks. The Mrs already declared herself designated driver for the way home.

Useless and/or Junior and/or Dutch and/or Ben Hatred,
Email me yr phone #(s) at smashintransistors (at) yahoo.com so we can call once we enter the city limits.

ALSO: maybe dutch or another band makes a few songs at my house before the track? anyone?

Posted: Jun 12, 2006 2:24 pm
 
YES!
Posted: Jun 12, 2006 5:25 pm
 
my hair is matted down in some Magic Shell of track grit. The passenger with the 2 foot beard hanging out the yellow bus's window, he was crazy!
Posted: Jun 12, 2006 5:41 pm
 
If it wasn't so late and such a long drive home I would've tracked that guy down and partied with him.
Posted: Jun 12, 2006 11:11 pm
 
this event marked my first time barfing in galesburg speedway shitter. nice to meet dales lil ones. there doing these again this summer
Posted: Jun 12, 2006 11:16 pm
 
In August I believe...Sounds like a plan again if you ask me.
Posted: Jul 18, 2006 7:04 pm
 
August 13th is the date I've been given. Now that we know they allow carry in booze and such we should start working on the plan NOW!
Posted: Jul 18, 2006 8:21 pm
 
good idea. I think you're only allowed a 6er each, but with enough brohanns could easily bring in a few 30 packs.
Posted: Jul 18, 2006 8:43 pm
 
That's what the sign on the gate said but people were bringing in good sized coolers and no one was checking them...Besides, they allow re-entry so the extras could be stashed in cars.
Posted: Jul 18, 2006 10:34 pm
 
long as its not glass. they checked my sack when it was like 10 strong, no problem
Posted: Aug 19, 2006 7:51 pm
 
Michigan Goners should come to Port Huron tonight see the Moonlight and SSM at the Roche Bar!!! The show is free!!! I got couches if ya need to sleep before the drive back too!

It's gonna be a freaking party!!!

Posted: Apr 29, 2007 5:41 pm
 
Yeah, the season is heating up. We'll be sure to make it out there at least once this summer. I'll keep y'all posted. I'm pretty sure I'll be out that way for the Goodnight Loving show too.
Posted: Apr 29, 2007 7:05 pm

Posted: Apr 29, 2007 8:19 pm

2008 schedule!
Posted: Jan 27, 2008 9:43 pm
 
We DID miss it last year. This year a return for sure or what?
Posted: Jan 27, 2008 10:57 pm
 
We should enter a bus this year. We could play Wizzard Sleeve and Drunks With Guns and Happy Flowers records in our bus over a PA until we accessed launch codes for vomitose in sweat pants. Would this qualify as a podcast?

We'll be there. We nationwide.
Posted: Jan 27, 2008 11:43 pm
 
Do we have enough time to get this together? Who's got the line on an old bus we can use? Do you think think we could get that crazy ZZTOP looking hippie to jump ship and be on our team?
Posted: Jan 28, 2008 12:12 pm
 
ZZ Bottom, he ruled. I just want to dream of having our own short or long bus of fun.

Supposedly my wife has a disc with pics of your kids riding the buses. This was after I sent out the records.
Posted: Feb 17, 2008 4:05 pm
 
Shit, I forgot about those pics. I'd dig seeing them.

The June races are penciled in as something planned for us this year.

What's everybody up to next Saturday? THIS is a good excuse for a road trip over to yr side of the state. Millionare, ya in?
Posted: Feb 17, 2008 4:18 pm
 
I wonder if theres a way someone could finagle a deal for the Menthols to be the official band of the 2008 Bus Races.
Posted: Feb 17, 2008 5:57 pm

dammit! we aren't going to be in town or else I'm sure we'd be up for that.

Ahh shit. I just sent y'all a message too.
Posted: Feb 18, 2008 12:05 pm
 
I gotta work. The new Founders is pretty strange. Like they bought a muffler shoppe and put tables inside of the garage, there's glass everywhere.
