Last night was such a fun show @Rocky's Place. All the bands were a ton of fun and it went from 8:00pm to 2:30am. At midnight the cops showed up to turn the party off, because the show was happening in a residential area (next to an apartment complex) so we moved the party to Hood Ride which is this pretty cool place over on 5th St. and Roosevelt Rd. in downtown Phoenix that fixes up old bikes. The night started with a fun/silly performance by Ray Reeves and the Phoenix $uns and then Fathers Day played and tore the place up, trying to build hope in the hearts of young americans everywhere. After the Fathers Day set I headed down the street to Circle K to get some water (since the only drinks available at the house was beer) and i missed Bolt! but i heard them from outside the Circle K and they sounded awesome as always. Painkiller played a very joyful set that was more background music than anything but people still enjoyed it. Skinwalkers played a short 20 minute set that got everyone going crazy and having fun! and I think they are my new favorite local band, because the vibes and energy and music and show...everything is just so positive and fun. And if you haven't checked them out yet. You should. This is when the cops showed up and turned the party off. But only for a moment. Because soon everyone was over at hoodride enjoying The Hooves, who were fun. (lots of sleazy shuffle beats and sing along) And then the moment i know i was waiting for finally came but it almost became a disaster. Treasure Mammal showed up to play another one of his life changing performances and the people at Hood Ride (i think it was them but i am still unsure) turned off the PA system. All hope was about to be lost until Abe (T. Mammal) said "fuck it! let's party anyway!" and had the crowd join him in a two song accapella jam. Then some guy jumped on drums and started playing a beat very similar to "the Bambi Jam" so Andrew, Tristan and I got the bambi jam started with a handful of people, which later turned into "poop song #1". It all ended very abruptly and we all went home with smiles on our faces.
Fathers Day is jumping onto rocky (skinwalkers) sweet house show! and we are starting no later than 9:30pm. and there is going to be free pizza. and the show is free. and the bands are going to be amazing and ...jeez there really isnt an excuse you can give for missing out on this. so anyway here is the other details.
-Treasure Mammal (AWESOME!)
-Ray Reeves and the PHX $ons (AWESOME!)
-The Unfiltered Sound
the other bands i dont know anything about. but rocky has good taste in music so i am sure they are rad. so the show starts at 8:00pm and will go till whenever. and the address is "27 e woodward dr # 1 Central & Virginia( one light south of thomas) behind the Circle Kizzle"-Rocky
