Hollywood Royalty

Do you hear that, y'all.

It's the sound of an axe slowly chopping it's way through a teeny tree.

The sound of a movie star scrubbing and waxing her floor and DEMANDING that you remove your shoes. (No need to remove your socks, however. She can handle the socks.)

The sound of Hollywood Royalty jogging down the street with her maid driving the convertable beside her as the glamour girl runs faster and faster, muttering to herself and the universe, "Survive! Survive! Survive! Survive!"

Yep, it's THE JOANS!



They play tonight at Jackhammer ( 6406 N. Clark) in The Flesh Hungry Dog Rock Show.

It's only $8. You can join me there. But not at Perrino's.

"Damn it, Perrino's is MY PLACE!"

"I'm not mad at you. I'm mad at the dirt!"

Cool! Look forward to seeing you there...

Oh, I should mention that we're playing alongside two other great bands: Retardos De La Mour and Sick of Sarah...

Aaron - This is gonna be a Hell of a show! Looking forward to it!

Retardos de la Mour... is that a spoof of Rudy De La Mour?

Stephen Rader said...

dovarjorth - If it's not, it should be! :)

According to the Flesh Hungry Dog press release, "The Retardos De La Mour take their lead from the Hubert Selby Jr. novel, 'Last Exit To Brooklyn.'"

I haven't read it, but I'll bet it's interesting! I have their CD, too, I was listening to it earlier today. It's quite good!

Aaron - Yeah, but do they have two Joans, one Carole Ann and two dashingly dapper and handsome men donning suits in their group? I think not! :)

Aaron said...

No, but they DO have a drummer who doesn't look just like Drew Carey in a suit (at least according to the CD picture)...

Bless you anyway. Remind me to buy you a drink tonight! :-)

Aaron - Did someone say, "Remind me to buy you a drink tonight?" You're on!! :)
