I'm going to talk about the limo later.
This show rules. Every episode is good. The characters are expanding and the story-line is addicting. Many seasons of renewal lie ahead. Our time-slot is safe, the ratings will hold. Welcome to the dangerously stable Vancouver punk rock manifold.
Anteater was a real solid draft pick for this team. Like a 3rd rounder scoring 30 goals. They brought speed and precision to the scene. Dancing between punk and metal like a long-haired dream. A perfect mixture of anger and steam. And with them always came a flurry of thirsty fans, raising their fists for all the bands. The end of Anteater is really just a renovation, as they will each continue to paint new shit on different walls. Art doesn't stop when the liquor calls.
It was my turn to drive and it was truly horrifying. Steve and Hogo finished their 10 drink tickets FAST, and that number is for EACH. They were both on stage for Jack's Hill, and my eyes were WIDE, but they both sung with surprisingly strong tone and right-word-remembering. I was proud, yet fearful of the road ahead. Worry not, my friends, it was a safe and warm trip, along the smooth and savoury Barnet Highway strip.
I may have driven but it is now 3:18am and I have new underwear on and the Jameson bottle is open. Am I actually going to finish a late-night after-show blog post for the first time in many months?! Sorry that I have not written more about the other amazing bands that played tonight. Next time, my friends. The point of this whole story is the limo at the end.
The next thing that happened in this story is a fuckin LIMO showed up in front of SBC at about 1:47am. It looked like 5 luxury SUV's in an automotive centipede. Fans were flocking all around it as the members of Anteater flowed in, each carrying a fancier glass than the last. Then it pulled away with windows so tinted that maybe we were yelling at an empty limo? Or perhaps it was other celebs? Or a cement truck? No way, I saw in, it was them. My memories are legally binding, and flashbacks don't lie.
