Goner Message Board / ???? / Favorite Blackout performance (other than the Oblivians, Persuaders or Clone Defects)
Posted: May 29, 2006 3:24 pm
 
I know everone had to have enjoyed the Oblivians, Persuaders and Clone Defects.....what were some of your OTHER favorite performances?
(I thought the Krunchies and Angry Angry were great!)
Of course King Kahn and BBQ were great too, but I wanna hear some feedback on the not so obvious performers.......
Posted: May 29, 2006 3:29 pm
 
The Mullens! (myspace.com/themullens) I never heard them before and was totally blown away.
Posted: May 29, 2006 3:44 pm
 
COCOCOMA!!
Posted: May 29, 2006 3:51 pm
 
angry angles might have been my favorite of the weekend. cococomas new stuff sounds great and that may have been the best i've heard the krunchies.
Posted: May 29, 2006 4:03 pm
 
personal top 5:
1. Cheater Slicks (made me go nuts, new songs sounded great)
2. Oblivians (i screamed like a girl and had to puke during "feel real good")
3. Mullens (absolutely perfect. wish they had played Isabel though)
4. Mirrors (completely blown away)
5. Marked Men (so tight)

best bands i hadnt heard: Creetens (fave non blackout band) and Goodnight Lovin'

only a 2 or 3 bands i wasnt really into. but everything else was either really good or fucking great.

good to see some of you again and good to meet some of you for the first time.

Catholic Boys set at Ice factory
Mirrors were great
Mind Controls - totally great set and almost a fight before it!
King Khan/BBQ -of course
I even liked the Cuts quite a bit

I might second the Angry Angles as a possible best band of weekend even! (minus Oblivians and persuaders)

other memorable performance was lastname wearing what appeared to be pinky tuscadero's jumpsuit from the happy days episode where she drives in the demolition derby.

not saying it was something i wish i'd seen but god knows i won't be able to forget it.
Posted: May 29, 2006 4:38 pm
 
All of the headliners were amazing. I doubt a better group of four headliners could have been planned.

The best bands I hadn't heard were Cocomas and LiveFastDie. I bought their stuff within two minutes of their set ending. The Mirrors were also amazing.

Biggest regret has to be getting delayed on the way to the Friday show and only catching the last two songs of the Dutch Masters.

Really, there were only two bands that I didn't care for. I had a blast, and for once have come away in good health.

Formaldahyde Junkies at the Ice factory were fucking great. Catholic Boys rounding off the weekend were my highlight. My all time faves of the whole weekend though was Tuff Bananas. great set, great guys as well.

Mind Controls!

Posted: May 29, 2006 7:34 pm
 
Dude! Dark Skies,the Moneychangers and The Silver Kings were my favorite bands of the weekend! I didn't see a lot of you folks at that show though,where was everybody? Maybe there was some trouble finding the venue...

No,wait-- that was over at drunk mark's place here in Portland. I was wondering why the club looked so much like someone's basement. I have been blacked out drunk all weekend though. 15 hours of straight up drinkin' on Saturday alone! Nothing like a cold n' rainy Oregon Spring weekend to stir up thoughts of fancy in an alcoholic's liver.

Catholic Boys! They were so tight as Eric was swatting away beer cans without missing a hit!

Terrible Twos were my favorite band I hadn't heard. Also an amazing drummer.

And the Mirrors killed me.

Only a couple things sucked.

Clone Defects- Great selection of tunes, and A-ron was fantastic !
Marked Men- Never disappoint. So happy to see them again and get the new record.
Demons Claws- WITH Pierro. A dream come true. Saw them three times in one week, and Blackout show was the best.

Of course Mirrors, Mind Controls, and Cuts were out of sight. Every band made me happy, even Dead Moon.

I can't believe my phenomenal dance moves didn't make anyones list.
Posted: May 30, 2006 6:10 pm
 
Worst - Dead Moon

I did not go to Blackout this year, but I have seen these guys play twice. The first time, I left (apparently it got better after I left, but they all looked like they were on heavy drugs and had no energy), The second time rocked my world. So, my conclusion - how good they are probably depends on level of intoxication and drug choice for the evening.

Louie, I think you fell in love with purple. I totally love how you got all close & personal, told how awesome he was because he sucked so bad. That ruled.

Dead Moon wouldn't of sucked if they'd played a short concise 45 minute set, but they went on for well over an hour and a half, that was what made them boring.
Posted: May 31, 2006 3:16 pm

yeah, i don't either. that was SO awesome.

Dead Moon wouldn't of sucked if they'd played a short concise 45 minute set

they can play however long they wanna play. they're dead moon and that was NOT boring.
Posted: May 31, 2006 3:48 pm
 
I don't care how good a band is, I can't pay attention for over an hour. For punk bands, it's a half hour. You guys all suck - Time Flys were one of the best of the weekend.
Posted: May 31, 2006 3:50 pm
 
I can't pay attention for over an hour

The Oblivians played for over an hour and a half. I wasn't bored at all. It actually seemed short.

i could have watched an hour more. easily.
Posted: May 31, 2006 4:43 pm
 
Trickknee's right, if you can't do what you gotta do in a half hour set don't even get on the stage. There are a few exceptions, Oblivians being being one of them, they were awesome from beginning to end.
Posted: May 31, 2006 4:44 pm
 
I though dead moon was really boring and part of it was the FOUR COVERS they played. Fuck that shit.
Posted: May 31, 2006 4:50 pm
 
covers=boring?

(i feel like i'm missing something)
Posted: May 31, 2006 4:51 pm
 
or too many for your taste?
Posted: May 31, 2006 4:53 pm
 
I thought Dead Moon was good, though I only watched for about 25 minutes... but too many covers was my argument against the Dollrods...
Unless covers are your thing (ala Dirtbombs a few years ago)

i coulda done without the stones, johnny cash, and led zep ones, but i dug the ac/dc cover.
Posted: May 31, 2006 5:23 pm
 
I'm sure I'd have made an Oblivians exception, but I felt so lousy and out of it by the time they played that I barely enjoyed the set. In my right mind, I can't think of many bands other than the Oblivians that could conceivably go past an hour, but they have a lot of things going for them, including personal swaps & shit.
Posted: May 31, 2006 5:26 pm
 
AGREED! So much good stuff, but Time Flys were absolutely one of my favorites of the weekend. Berlin Brats were spinning in they graves.
Posted: May 31, 2006 5:50 pm
 
I did not dig The Mirrors at all. Play the song and end it......."This is the song that never ends.......". Great musicians, just not my thing. I didn't care much for Time Flys, either. There were alot of acts over at The Mutiny I would have rather seen in the Blackout lineup.

Where to start with the bands I LOVED??? Cococoma ruled, LiveFastDie were unreal, Dutch Masters were in my top 3 all week and then played in front of acts I thought they slaughtered, Clone Defects were insanely good, Marked Men just plain kicked ass and then some, Angry Angles were superb, Demon's Claws KICKED ass, Cheater Slicks were great as well and I really, really dug the Tampoffs.

I spent so much money on records and t-shirts from so many GREAT bands that I almost had to hitch a ride home.
Posted: May 31, 2006 6:10 pm
 
Dead Moon headlined, therefore, anyone who thought they were playing too long could have just as easily left early...all the quicker you can hit up the message boards and give a first hand account of how much you suck...
My personal favorite (non-band related) was watching Casey get pummeled with a barrage of elbows to the ribs compliments of one April Novak during the Oblivians set. Not sure why she did it, but if I looked anything like her, I'd probably be pissed off at everyone too.
Posted: May 31, 2006 6:30 pm
 
whoops...sorry Todd...forgot I was using your name...
Posted: May 31, 2006 6:33 pm
 
I thought the Galactic Inmates were going to be the worst band of the week but when I heard the Tampoffs that changed. They were discusting.
Posted: May 31, 2006 7:37 pm
 
I really liked Dead Moon's Elvis cover near the end of the set. Might've been the start of the encore, even. Though every time I hear that song, I hope for an "our love...was meant to ... shit. Hot damn tamale!"
Posted: May 31, 2006 7:56 pm
 
c. lotta, were ya hanging out on the steps watching The Mullens while they played?

To the rest of ya critics = NERDS!

All the bands killed.

Dead Moon ALWAYS plays that long. They're yer elders....show sum respect.....better yet, get yer own band and stop being bunch of whining ass pussies.

Gary1234, seems as though ya have a case of "garagerock tunnel vision"

Ya'll are like a buncha monday afternoon quaterbacks.

And I was blown-fucking away by the most-anticipated/biggest treats of my trip.....the PERSUADERS! OBLIVIANS! I am SO glad they exceeded my expectations. KK/BBQ & Clone Defects also exceeded and electrified! INCREDIBLE!

And I'd like to double this:

Naw, I was near that side of the stage, but wasn't on the steps. I think I had a grey tank top on that night. That was an epic day for me -cubs game, smoking, eating, drinking, and then the rock and roll! The Mullens are totally my new favorite band, and I didn't have tooooo many beers, because they sound just as good sober.

What led zepplin song did dead moon cover? Why don't I remember this?

My only complaints would be getting hit in the head by someone else's head, getting burnt by a cigarette, and finally getting "goosed". All this during the Oblivians. And it was all well worth it.

Not sure why she did it

I'd react the same way if a drunk, sweaty, fat guy was gettin his hands too close to my pussy. Arman and I were both eyewitnesses to this.

someone threw a beer & thought it was funny.

It wasn't a beer, it was a full glass of water and that dude was a fucking idiot. He bitched during every song of every band that night (something always along the lines of, "You punk rockers fucking suck!! Stoner rock! Stoner rock!"). He tossed the water and then ran for the door like a cunt when BBQ went to put his guitar down.

I saw him outside after the show and told him he ran like a little girl and he goes, "Yeah, I know. I always do that." What a choad.

Billiams & The Empty Bottle - this was my best four days of concerts ever. The lineups were unreal. Thanks for the effort. Not everyone likes the same music so not all the bands are going to be liked by everyone. I wouldn't take such offense.
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 1:05 am
 
I thought the Galactic Inmates were going to be the worst band of the week but when I heard the Tampoffs that changed. They were discusting.

An idiot with "offspring" in his username would say that. And spell "disgusting" incorrectly.

Aside from the heavyweights, the Marked Men, Creteens, Feelers, Carbonas, Mind Controls, Mullens, Live Fast Die and Cococoma were really good.

Fantastic job by billiams, Todd and everyone else involved. I had a blast.
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 2:56 am
 
i didn't say that "pussy, blah blah" shit, because i hate that shit. our drummer said that stuff. i didn't play that show to be 'confrontational' and shit. it kinda was a bummer, actually. i just wanted to have fun. the 'banter' started before on his part - he was fully into hating on me, and he apparently was dissing me to a friend of mine the whole time before. but i talked to the guy later. i guess it was his big night. listen, i am just trying to have fun at these shows. i know a bunch of folks hate me, but i actually find it 'pompous' when people who don't even know someone judge them. mind controls is actually supposed to be straight-edge peace-core.

It's bothering the hell out of me that this thread excluded three of the best performers all week. So I'm just gonna say that all three completely and totally slayed me. Thinking back at the power the Persuaders played with makes the hair stand up on my neck. Fuck that was good stuff! And the Clone Defects?? Christ! And the Oblivians were a total and sincere religious experience.

Maybe you guys would even like the Time Flys if there were pictures of them eating hot dogs in Goner t-shirts.
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 12:24 pm
 
I hadn't intended to respond as I didn't deem it necessary, however it was bothering me enough to think my name was be sullied and I was being viewed as some grotesque sweaty pervert so... Per the leveled groping allegations, though having a foggy notion but still having another to corroborate, it was an incidental situation with no malice or perversion intended. Perceive it how you may, but crowd flow and balance play large roles in situations like these.

Thanks for the support Brad. Thanks for the green light in life Troy.

Casey
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 1:58 pm
 
Casey's not really the type to be anonymously groping the crowd (his girlfriend was right near/next to him anyway, I imagine), though he is big and sweaty and ready for a civil war reenactment.
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 3:24 pm
 
He Casey! I had the same thing happen to me in Memphis for the 1st Oblivians reunion. I didn't do shit but I got swatted at and I was totally confused why this chick was trying to kill me. Since April's the one accusing "somebody" this time I wouldn't take it too seriously. She likes to stir up shit wherever she goes. I wish I knew why. Oh yeah, it's cuz she's retarded.

I saw him outside after the show and told him he ran like a little girl and he goes, "Yeah, I know. I always do that." What a choad.

Devil Dog, did we meet outside the empty bottle? I swear somebody told me this story at the end of the night... but I can't remember the specifics (like, who, exactly)... for some reason or another.

I saw the whole thing. Mark didn't do shit to that dude. It was a source of endless amusement AND irritation to me for at least an hour.
Posted: Jun 1, 2006 7:36 pm | Edited by: queenothetwist
 
Hey Mark, that guy who threw the water at you is actually a huge fan; he's a friend of mine and does that shit at every show (and sometimes randomly on the street). He's a chronic heckler - he can't control himself at ALL. He wants people to like him but when he gets in social situations he turns into a retarded loudmouth. I'm also pretty sure he's also gay and might possibly love you. which might explain the whole situation....

Even after Matt came over and talked to him he kept at it, just under his breath.

my apologies to everyone for his existance. He's actually really great. Stupid asshat.

People,

Once again, THANKS FOR COMING! Really, Me and the other HozAc guys super appreciate it. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves (to much at times?)

Sorry, if I was ranting a little in the earlier post. It's hard not to take offense though. These bands are close friends that I/we have met over the years. That is why they played this Blackout, we weren't lookin' to win any popularity contests....just wanted to have good friends and good times. I know not everyones gonna like the same thing, just no need for negative critique.
THANY YOU ALL!!!!
TITZ

On another note:
Who was the girl in the jean dress with another female friend sitting on the stairs while The Mullens played? Anyone, anyone?

BTW- Dead Moon rule!

I don't care how good a band is, I can't pay attention for over an hour

you could always leave...there was another room to hang out in


Hope everyone enjoyed themselves (to much at times?)
billiams..... i did indeed. thank you and the hozac dudes for a great line up of bands/friends that its always a big pleasure to see. and many more thanks to you personally for letting me, you know.... do what tom told me to do. over and over again.

And that's what I did. What's your point? I'm not saying that bands can't or shouldn't play that long, or that other people don't enjoy marathon sets, I'm saying I personally can't stand hour and a half sets from any band, and there's really no way to debate that.

Matt - I saw more great bands (night & day shows) than any other weekend of my life. Thanks again, buddy! I despise festivals, but made it to every Blackout except for the first because you guys had the best line-ups and the best attitude. RIP Blackout and some much-needed rest to the HA crew.

What's your point?

just that you could always leave the room. i didn't know you did; glad you did....i think its a tough call - for the band or audience.... is less more or is more more or too much?

Thank you for hooking us all up with a most excellent time! We had many many fungasms. Got home broke & exhausted & very glad that we went.

i actually like the fact that there were bands i dont like. gave me a chance to relax, get a drink, go to the bathroom, check out the merch, chat it up, and save my energy for the bands that were great. a few so-so bands here and there isnt necessarily a bad thing. overall it was all quality fun.

covers=boring?

I'm strictly a one cover per set kind of gal. And I just think that if a band has been a band a billion years, and they are going to play for like five hours, then they should play their own songs. And I didn't like them. And I thought you quit this message board.

nope, we're all still here.
