Rebar--Where's Rikk?

Our bass player skipped town two steps ahead of fathers with shotguns, or so the story goes.
I felt vulnerable and scared without my boss and protector there with me.
Also felt over-worked. Dragging all our heavy shit from the trailer to the stage by myself is no fucking picnic.
I think I sprained my gozinta.

There was a long line of people waiting to get inside.
Utter pandemonium all night--best crowd ever!
Chrissy got a break because the audience was doing most of the singing.

Nice people--thanks for the beer.

Blew a circuit breaker tonight--it's been 6 months since that's happened.
Had the band up and running again in 2 minutes, and they picked up the same song where they left off.
Fucking power-sucking neon beer signs can bite my shiny metal ass.

Introducing Peege, our fill-in bassist until Rikk is able to return.
He also plays with Chrissy in the Undercovers.
A solid 4-stringer with nice tone who must have balls the size of church bells to learn all our songs and jump right in without a single rehearsal.
Buy this guy a drink next time you see him.
Saved our asses!

Fingers everywhere.
Even in the ladies room, judging by what I saw from the doorway.

Get well ASAP, Rikk.
I don't like doing this without you.
Chrissy's mean to me and Florin won't share.
Steve stole my cookie.

St. Patrick's Gay

Chased all the snakes out of Ireland?
Sounds like he was trying too hard--either to get some or to prove he wasn't.

Bliss and Prototype teamed up to demolish the green-beer-swilling masses on a Tuesday Night worth remembering.
If they can remember shit after tonight...

Green Foam Hat Fun

Prototype's singer is our guest for some Evanescence magic.

This was Year #2, Show #1 for me.
Looking back, Bliss has moved a long way towards dominance of the local scene.

Too Cold To Rock?

As always there was a capacity crowd at Revolution room, but tonight they were 98% pussies.
I guess it's hard to scream when your teeth are chattering?

Rule #73: If it's cold and rainy, wear a fucking jacket.
Are ALL of your moms crackwhores?

Bliss delivered the goods of course.

I liked Chrissy's parting shot.
My sentiments exactly.

Y'all sucked.

GRC Flips Out

Typical pandemonium at the GRC.
But why all the fighting?
The short asshole who tried to pick one with me didn't get very far.

Any horizontal surface found itself covered in empties, but on our equipment cases?
