Waiting Room

I get a new prize for most uncreative post title ever.

This vid just seems to capture the "feel" of a great club gig.

Not surprising

So this band that has had some success over the years lists a really cool band amongst its big influences. For Record Store Day they even release a 7" with a cover of one of that old band's great songs with the original on the B side. One word-Cool.

One of the many vids from the "test rides" at Cuyuna, the new IMBA trail hotspot in the Crosby/Ironton area. Just 15 miles from my cabin. I will be there numerous times this summer. The grand opening is the weekend of June 10th. All sorts of activities planned. Even Hans Rey is going to be there.

Looks awesome, don't you think?

Artcrank 11

Q and I got together and headed to NE Minneapolis to pay a visit to this year's Artcrank. A "bike culture" art show and, well, party. When we got there we encountered a large crowd of people way cooler than we are.

We also saw some guys wearing matching racing team jackets and leather pants. They had this odd TV evangelist hair thing going too.

Of course we bought some art. Why else would we be there? Besides the free beer and the free music and the crowd watching and the....wait, what was I talking about?

So here is what I got myself.

Q got this wonderful representation of denim

I picked this up for Just A Cool Cat

After finishing up at Artcrank (the beer ran out) we headed over to Grumpy's to finally see my old friend Shawn Walker's band-Gay Witch Abortion. It took all of twenty seconds into the first song for me to be reminded what an absolutely gifted drummer he is. GWA is a drum and guitar two piece that creates a massive wall of sound. I definitely will be seeing these guys again. They had them playing in this little hallway of a room, so it was impossible to get close for some good photos.

Of course not really having any lights on the band didn't help either

All in all a fun evening. Now I have to get over to Q's. I left my stuff there.
