Seattle, Wa. 10/5/09 Chop Suey

John’s battery died right as he went to take the crowd shot, so instead here is a drawing of the boys on stage by a nice lady who’s name I can not remember. I know, total dick move.

The adventure started early on when we stopped for gas at a small town in southern Washington. We were waiting for the bathroom and kept hearing strange yelping noises and what sounded like someone hitting a small bell with an oversized hammer. It took a couple of minutes to figure out that is the man in the phone booth across the parking lot. From what we could figure out his love life had shit the bed, causing him to repeatedly bash the headset of the phone into the receiver and scream, “Where the fuck did you sleep last night!?” Over and over again. Maybe the huge Meth Watch sign on the way into town should have tipped us off…

The show was great. Been looking forward to seeing Bison B.C. for a while now and they didn’t disappoint. Brutal awesomeness (Wow, awesomeness is a word? No spell check. Huh.) Anyway, James from Bison B.C. is a longtime bro from back in the day when Bryan, David and John were in Party Time and he was in a band called S.T.R.E.E.T.S., which stood for Skateboarding Totally Rules Everything Else Totally Sucks. Find them on the web, they killed it. Just look at him:

You think any one with GNAR 4EVS tattooed on his knuckles be any band that was anything less?

We’re pretty sure they are also the ones for responsible for me find this in my tip jar:

Influenced by Michael Monroe? More like Marilyn Monroe. I wonder if that P.O. Box is still good…

  1. Haha. Awesome post, and what a tip! I dare say I remember such 'rock cards' - egads, I think I had a Soundgarden one. Don't feel too bad forgetting the artist's name, unless it's there at the top left - hard to tell. (The Artist's # 1 rule is always sign your work! ) That drawing is very narrative for a simple quick-sketch by the way. Can't wait till you guys get to CA!
