but no....Fat Mike is sick, nofx concert is postponed and i am bummed.
i am glad i got the message before i was an hour or so on the road. i was about 10 minutes from hitting the road (and if i didn't have to wait to pick up my boy from preschool, i would've already been on the road).
so, i came home and mowed lawn...and mowing a wet, overgrown lawn is not as much fun as going to a show.
I don't know who Fat Mike is, but I feel for you, Rob. Hugs.
Perk, Fat mike is banned from Emo's for something he did at SXSW down in Austin
At Emo's, a popular nightclub in Austin during the 2010 South by Southwest festival, Fat Mike has made appearances as Cokie the Clown, but one of his most memorable was the SXSW fest. He recounted several graphic and disturbing stories about his life, and played several songs both previously released and unreleased. He also tricked several members of the audience into drinking tequila, before showing them a video of himself filling a partially full bottle of tequila to the top with urine to shocked reactions. The stunt was later revealed as a joke on NOFX's website, which showed Fat Mike switching out the urine bottle for an untainted one before making audience members drink it. Mike has since been banned from Emo's. Fat Mike has been credited with creating the phrase "Nawesome", which means not awesome.

He doesn't look fat in the picture.
i don't think he is or ever was hawkirob fat.
They scheduled two makeup dates...first week in december, in the middle of the week. And it is a week we are already short handed so it may be pretty difficult to get time off if i am able to work out the logistics of going up there in the middle of the week with little man
That sucks. I guess you will just have to spend the night posting with us losers.
Yeah, post with us!
i got nuttin better going on
You watching the game tomorrow? Any plans?
Wahoo! Any good shows coming up I need to know about, hawkirob?
green day in moline february first.
deftones are going on tour this fall, but i think the closest they are coming is Kansas City and Chicago.
and i believe you are already going to the murphys....now that this show tonite got postponed, i should really try to get to that show if i can't get time off of work for the rescheduled dates
Moline could suck to get to in February if the weather is dumb but that would be cool. My cousin just saw deftones in Chicago like a month ago she said it was great. My sister lives in KC so that could be worth checking out.
Doooo it. Yeah I will be at that one, the tickets were cheap like 27 if I remember right.
my sister lives in the quad city area, and my parents just moved to the area, so if weather is moving in, i would just drive there the night before after work. i also told my sister (who is getting me the ticket as a holiday present) to have a backup in case the weather turns into the suck.
i so want to see the deftones. i just don't want to go to chicago to see it.
i somehow missed that Reverend Horton Heat was playing down at Gabes in IC on monday night.
it might be on my radar if i can't make it to one of the rescheduled nofx shows. unfortunately right now i don't have the paid leave or the money (when you factor in cost of gas, and food/drink outside of the ticket prices) to make it to all of the shows that i would like to.
