I bought a ticket about a minute before seeing these posts, I thought Yow was just with them for the LA date before that. That's so awesome.

Sure wish I could've seen David singing with The Dicks in Austin, years ago. But I was lucky enough to see him with The Melvins a long while back.

Just a few short weeks away. The Chicago/St. Louis shows are the start of a much-needed 10-day vacation for me. I'm looking forward to hanging out with some pals.

Yes, this is correct.
Got to see this the first time and it was awesome.
David approached all the material with panache and the appropriate amount of reverence and irreverence. It was really great.
I'll probably drive down for the Chicago show.

That was a shambling, embarrassing nightmare.

I've never had more fun.

That was fucked.

Like four amplifiers ended up fried, multiple fights broke out, the stage was absolutely littered with beer cans, and I walked in on a band member scoring acid after the set.

Helluva show.
Kerouacian as fuck.

Fuck it, I just bought a ticket to the Chicago show because it’s fucking Flipper.

Flipper is the furthest thing from crap. Too fucking real. I’m surprised most of these guys are still alive. More bands should do the bass guitar as underpinning with guitar on top as noise accoutrement thing. That is a super winning formula, at least in the case of Flipper.

Blow'n Chunks is a rad live album. That was my introduction to them so I guess I should finally see them live. Steve DePace remains a drumming inspiration.
