Well, I'd like to think nothing much has been going on, but then I'd be lying. I met this kid, Sean Hendler, who plays bass and guitar and sings. Now, I asked him into Allaire and he comitted. We havn't had a REAL practice, but we are this next weekend. Speaking of calender days, 2 weeks left in school, fuck; yes. Anyways, Sean introduced me to this other kid, Dominique, who plays drums. So, soon we are gonna have Allaire songs, done full band. Cause I mean, I'm starting to want to do the whole band thing cause you can't really move around with an acoustic guitar around your neck like you can with distorition and a 5 pound piece of sex. So it'll be cool. Oh, and don't worry, if things don't work out with the full band thing, don't fret, Allaire will still just be me and Sean (if he wants). I don't plan on ever giving up on that, I've gone to far and worked to hard to throw it away like I have in other bands. And by the way, Allaire is scheduling shows in Orlando and New Orleans and Metairie so WATCH OUT!
Sean invited me to Cypress Hall, literatly, a hall, where local bands play and the cover is just $6 all the time, which is fucking awesome. Friday I went with him, we picked him up and got dropped off and I met this girl April and this guy Zach, who are now my friends. Now, you'd think this Cypress place would be like a venue like somewhere in a city, fuck no, you have to go through a city, then a ghetto, JUST to GET to ANOTHER ghetto, then you're at Cypress. I think it's very amusing to see kids in denim and leather and hair in their eyes walk from back and forth from Game Klub (a run-down strip club with video games inside, really it still has the multi-colored floor and poles) to Cypress through the ghetto.
Gospel of Disception (G.O.D.), Tainted Oi, and April Flies Kites played that night. I didn't see GOD, but I saw Tainted Oi, they sounded like if you were to mix 30 year-olds with The Clash, The Sex Pistols, and Good Charlotte together. AKA they sucked fuck-ass. PLUS they claimed to be all METALXCORE with their double bass pedals and Scheter guitars, but when they did a cover of "The Little Things" by Good Charlotte, I fucking wet myself falling down the stairs laughing my way out of the concert hall.
April Flies Kites are fucking orgasmic, no lie, top favourite band of the Month of May (and April haha). The singer sounds like a tounger Chris C. from Dashboard, mixed with The Starting Line music; sorry, best way I can describe it, I dunno check em out on mysapce. I bought their cd and two pins.
Saturday I went back to Cypress, met up with Zach and April (Sean got grounded the night before, so he couldn't make it). We hung out and I met up with Hali and Jessie, Then Hali went home and Jessie went to Barnes N Nobles for some coffee. We stayed and watched New Orlreans screamo (The Arcane Theory and Same In San Juan). We didn't watch SkinKrawl, instead April, Jessie, Zach and I went to Game Klub and took pictures. Aprils whooped my ass TWICE at air-hockey and I whooped Jessie at it. Then April, Jessie, and I hit the racing game, Jessie fucking did some cheat and did some turbo shit and ran my ass off the road like I was a 2cent hooker (even though I am). So I came in second. Hey, at least I won. Then we went back to Cypress cause I was supposed to take April home so she could stay out later, her mom ended up picking her up and I sat and talked with Zach about life. Damn, it's moments like this where I feel like I was ripped out of a S.E. Hinton paperback novel.
