I don't think we need to practice before shows anymore. Just show up in dumb costumes and go on stage at around 12:45am. Stack wicked bands before us that encourage force-drinking and friendliness. Whip everyone into a wild frisky feline frenzy and let the dogs out.

I feel like my 'lapping liquor out of a catfood bowl' routine could have been better. But I was spilling it all over my guitar. Should have practiced it a few times. That's what practice will be from now on. Just cool gags and wacky bits. Give the audience something to really shake their tails at.
*teeth check: all confirmed
I need a headset microphone like Madonna. Has anyone tried this in the punk scene? After the 3rd mic-eating incident, my friend Tim grabbed me from beside the stage and aggressively instructed me to not lose my teeth. Always take the advice of powerful Russian men who kiss on the lips. Shifted over to Hogie's mic and it worked out just fine. Only unplugged his guitar 3 times.
Always great to see members from other local bands at shows. Solidarity, my brethren. Having Tim and Lachlan (and the crowd) sing Lino with us was extra special. Some day we will learn new cover songs, some day, maybe. Until then we will deliver the same 2 over and over for your yelling pleasure.
Pub 340 is a rad place for a punk show. From the staff to the stage, they harness the rage. The perfect mix of regulars and rioters. All united by the desire for cheap beer and aggressive music played by passionate people. We look forward to playing there again, hopefully showcasing our new line of personalized punk rock headset microphones. Patent pending.
