RYANS BEST PERFORMANCES OF 2005!
11-28-05 - Catorce @The Trunkspace in Phoenix, AZ
it was just me and JRC our whole set was about art theory, performance art, art history and art school. i think it was one of the funniest things i have ever done
12-08-05 - Night Wolf @The Willow House Cafe' in Phoenix, AZ
it was a very crowded poetry night and i read the entire bus book introduction to a soft rock sorta beat on the keyboard. i have never been booed so much in my life and this is also a great achievement for me because literally a tomato was thrown at me.
11-25-05 - Fathers Day @The Trunkspace in Phoenix, AZ
fathers day played unannounced with some cutesy "indie" bands. the crowd was made up of middle school and high school kids. i threw this little girls cigarettes across the room and said "what would your mother say if she saw you smoking?" she replied "my mom buys me these cigarettes" i said "if your mother really loved you she would not be buying you cigarettes!!!!!!". also this is the first fathers day show with the realistic mustache
11-04-05 - Iggy Pop @The Terrace Gardens in Phoenix, AZ
this was the first show where we used the bucket of glass. and it was also such an amazing feeling to play surrounded by plants and flowers. it was really really amazing.
08-06-05 - The Best Friends @Four White Walls in Phoenix, AZ
this was a really great best friends performance. we sang a bunch of great songs. [even a rap] and it was also a really great show. HOORAY PINK AND GREEN PARTY!
02-14-05 - Silverchair @The Willow House Cafe' in Phoenix, AZ
this performance will be talked about years from now. and i am very proud of that.i dressed in a homemade pink nazi uniform and did an hour long "silverchair" set about love, sex, relationships, stalking....etc
