I have been sucking lately when it comes to blogging. The paying gig has consumed a lot of my energy as has school leaving for little time for this site. I know, I suck. Deal.
Next week I am headed back to Austin, TX to check out Fun Fun Fun Fest. This will be my first FFF experience and second trip to one of the best cities in America.
Without going into too much detail, I decided to grab a ticket after I discovered that Danzig was bringing his Danzig Legacy set to the show and would be playing Misfits songs with Doyle Von Frankenstein. It also helped to hear that the Murder City Devils would be playing a show as well. In fact, after I saw those two bands, I made my decision instantly.
Granted there are like 16 versions of the Misfits these days, there is only one version I prefer. After I saw the Misfit(s) in 1996 with Michael Graves taking lead, I told myself that I would never see the Misfits again live unless Danzig himself was behind the mic. Don’t get me wrong, I had a good time, but I can not stand any Misfits material after Earth A.D.
Coincidentally I am not the only one with Danzig on my mind…
Recently my pal D.X. Ferris started writing a 4-part series called Defending Danzig on the pro-metal website called MetalSucks.net. I encourage anyone out there who knows the name Danzig to check it out. Ferris has been making some valid points on a musician who is way more talented than he gets credited for. Sure the below picture is a real picture of Danzig in a Danzig shirt buying kittie litter, but he is a person too and apparently has a cat.
Ferris will wrap up the series on Monday, Halloween to many, and I have to say, I can not wait to see it. So far it has been a great read.
Back to my upcoming adventure. This is my site after all right?
Murder City Devils. I am going to see them live and I am beyond stoked. I have been a fan of them for years and missed many a chance to see them live. I even considered a couple years ago to travel to Chicago to see them play their reunion show but backed out for whatever pathetic reason. This time though it is happening.
Life is too short to think how good something could be without going for it… and I have no problem traveling to see a good show. Thanks in advance to a spacial lady in Austin who is giving her couch up to me for the weekend.
I am also hoping to meet up with Evan Lovett, a very talented tattoo artist who does work out of Austin as well as Beachwood, NJ. Should things work out, I will not only interview him, but also add to my personal tattoo collection.
I’m sure I will be keeping everyone in the loop. Stay tuned and have a great weekend!!!
