August 5, 2007

So I really was resisting the urge to make some sort of inane punny headline for this Aug. 23 event that I’m co-promoting. Then I realized that the event in question is called Now Blog This V. 2.0! Yeah, I know.

But name difficulties aside, this event is going to be the best party/concert/blog clusterfuck in the history of party/concert/blog clusterfucks. Of course, you’re probably asking yourself what makes this night more special than any other night? No, there will be no Matzah (I presume), instead we will be treated to performances from some of the best unleavened bands in the city of Los Angeles.

Each blogger chose one band to play. With my first round draft pick, I took the Deadly Syndrome, arguably the most electrifying live band in LA right now. Aquarium Drunkard tabbed the awesomeness that is Le Switch, while Kevin Bronson picked Orange County’s Aushua. Lastly, LA Underground selected Phoenix and the Turtle, a band who I have yet to hear. Hopefully, they will bring live turtles and Phoenixes on-stage. In between sets, Joe from Radio Free Silverlake and Jax from Rock Insider will be DJ’ing.

The bottom line is you have no excuse not to come. If nothing else for the opportunity to enact some sort of pernicious scheme that could single-handedly wipe out 97 percent of LA’s music bloggers in one fall swoop. Rumor has it, good times will be had by all.

P.S. Punch and Pie will be served.
