Dearth of Posts

Yeah, I've been lighting this thing up in 2008, huh? I apologize. Real life fucked Vitamin J right up the old poop chute for much of this year. Things did turn around for me sometime around Labor Day and they got even better a few weeks after that.

I hate to be all vague and whatnot, but some heavy shit is going down and Death May Be Your Santa Claus just isn't the proper venue.

Happy holidays.

Brought to You by the Letter "B"

Local H, the greatest fucking live band in the world and don't you ever goddam forget it, played in Covington, Ky. on Nov. 28. As they are the greatest fucking live band in the world, they rocked. Oh, how they rocked.

What makes this an even more special event was the fact that they were OPENING for another band (Electric Six, whom I kind of like, but still).

Therefore, Local H only played for about 45 minutes, give or take. Seeing as how this is the only time I saw them in 2008, I'll take what I can get.

About two songs in, Scott Lucas announced, "This show is brought to you by the letter 'B.'" I was like, "Whatever, dude." But then, as I was dutifully jotting down the setlist, I noticed that, save for the first tune, each song did in fact feature the letter "B" in its title. Hunh. Even "Toxic," which is a cover of a Britney Spears song. Oh, how clever! Why, the drummer's name is Brian St. Clair and Lucas was even sporting a Beatles t-shirt.

Except where did set-opener "...Sperm Whale" fit in the mix?
