Gurp City

It's like Vegas fool. San Francisco and the Bay Area rappers, producers and DJs all get together for one good cause, to get drunk as fuck and make good music.

Cause, DNAE Beats, Boac, The Makai, Third Sight, The AlterBoys, MC Oroville, Illsquad, Live Human, Lords Crew, Alex Pardee, Zero Friends, Big Sammy, DJ Raw B and Fatees.

T.G.I.F.F. (Thank Gurp It’s Fuckin’ Friday)

Friday, March 28th, 2008

T.G.I. Motherfucking F. y’all. If you hate your day job and you know it, clap your hands, then head to the nearest motherfucking bar and get your goddamn GURP on…

Set it off on Friday night with a dose of the rock…and I ain’t talkin’ ’bout suckin’ that glass dick.

You can get your classic pop rock fix from The Kinks’ Ray Davies performing solo at the Warfield in SF; check out East Bay pretty-boy buzz band Audrye Sessions, just off tour and performing a homecoming show at the Uptown Lounge in Oakland; or shave your head down to a mohawk and cause a motherfucking ruckus at Thee Parkside in SF, with Half Moon Bay’s own Nightstick Justice, Desolation and a bunch more punk bands.

Myself, I’m gonna hit Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland for Facepilot from Portland, OR, featuring the old school Chico homie Jeff Walker a.k.a. Jeff Rocker on drums. It’ll be a blunted, beer-soaked, battery-chuckin’ good time.

If you’d rather listen to fresh raps and get down on some wine-and-cheese artsy-fartsy type shit, you can catch the ace homie Z-Man performing at 111 Minna in the City tonight as part of the Juxtaposed-sponsored Suite Jesus art show. Z-Mainey will holding it down with Goodword, Dirtbag Dan and D-Whiz.

Saturday rolls on with no shortage of worthy Gurpology. If you’re a boss, a whiskey fanatic, or just a papered-up alcoholic, we’ll be seeing you at the Whiskeys of the World Expo on the San Francisco Belle yacht down at Pier 3 on the Embarcadero in SF at 6 PM.

Bun B

After Gurp City sinks the Belle (or drinks it dry — whichever comes first), it’s over to the Mezzanine for Bun B and Devin The Dude, to kick it in a cloud o’ dank, pop collars and hold it down Houston-style for the rest of the night.

Tha Liks

If subterranean drunk rap is more your speed, don’t miss Tha Alkaholiks with Hiero’s A-Plus at Café Du Nord in SF. It’s a small venue, a great place to see a good show by one of LA’s best-ever rap crews…and if any group is an honorary Gurp City inductee, it’s Tha ‘Liks. Seriously, I was having a hard time between this show and the Bun B / Devin show, and I’m still trying to figure out a way to hit both…but after Whiskeys of the World…well, there’s just no calling it.

If you got a mullet and you love to piss and moan about how rock has pretty much sucked since 1989, hit the Warfiled in SF for Y&T (you fag). Better yet, jump in yer Bitchin’ Camaro and haul yer ass up to Tahoe for motherfucking Queensryche at Harrahs, and scream howling staccato like your nuts are in fucking vice.

Von Iva

Rather watch hot chicks bang out hot rock? No problem — SF’s Von Iva are playing at the Uptown Lounge in Oakland, and these ladies always put on a great show.

If you’re in Chico for the weekend, hit Nick’s for The Sleaze Tax, featuring bearded Gurp rock icon The Woot (that’s him on the left, with yours truly in Austin last summer), and indie stalwart Barbara Manning.

That’s all for this weekend, Gurpos. If you know of something else going on, hit it up in the comments. Otherwise I’ll be seeing y’all out on the track…and I’ll probably be seeing double, too.

Thuggy In The Land of Gurp – Pt. 1

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

“I’m going to the Google Party…and I’m going to pee on someone”

Words, fresh off the lips of our very own roving Gurp Reporter, Thuggy Fresh, who’s soaking up the sun, gawking at nerd beezies and drinking as many free Lone Stars he can get his chubby little Mexirican hands on at South By Southwest Interactive right now. He only left last night and already it’s shaping up to be a fucking adventure to say the least. Here are some highlights of his telephone check in.

  • Got blotto at Oakland Airport Lounge which resulted in dropping iPod into an impossible to retrieve crevasse between two snoring dudes in the first 15 minutes of a 3 and a half hour flight.
  • Sans iPod, Thugula is forced to listen to switch back and forth between Dave Koz channel and Classical Composers channel (no homo) from the in-flight radio service while sweating profusely (too much time smellin’ Oroville’s keys on the way to the airport) and wondering if dudes beside him were ever going to wake the fuck up.
  • Thuggy breaks down tunes into the in-flight movie, Enchanted. He said it was the best movie he’s seen in a while. He really loved the music, especially “Happy Working Song”, he doesn’t understand why it didn’t take home the Oscar for Best Song this year.
  • Your boy flew to Austin via, what for it….Atlanta where they had to “de-ice” the plane before it could fly further. De-ice in Hotlanta? WTF?
  • Thuggy spent the second leg of the trip rocking gently and praying to Jesus for sleep, the only escape from the monster life sucking hangover he was sobering into. His prayers went unanswered because Jesus is a dick.
  • With a little over 30 minutes sleep under his belt Thuggy descended into Austin this morning and made his way to the Craigslist crash pad he had arranged for himself. The place is a dirty shit hole but it’s going to work out just fine for the next few days.

As I type this Thuggy could be peeing on someone at the Google party. He’s been instructed to take photos and to text updates, so stay tuned for updates on THUGGY… IN THE LAND OF GUUUUURP (insert echo effect)
