Light one up witchaboy!!!
I’d be there if it wasn’t my boy David Banner’s Birthday that day.
Last year around this time an essential part Gurp City passed away. Brian (Evil B) Leventon was our bartender and close friend. While most other douchebags were serving party punch and Jager shots to the Greek assholes, Evil B treated us likes we were kings. High powered drinks and pitchers of beer were always waiting for us as soon as we walked in the door. Undeniably one of the coolest cats ever to stand behind a bar in Chico, and an all around good friend who would sacrafice anything to help a friend in need. It’s a shame you had to pass homie, I still think about you every time I watch an A’s game or stare at a glass of whiskey (which has been alot lately.) Gurp City will never be the same without you B. The Gurp City family has expanded soo much over the years but only the true OGs can claim All-Star status if they happened to be one of the fortunate few to have been served by you.
Brian, you are truly missed any will never be forgotten.
-Thuggy & The Gurp City Family
“I’ll always have one right here just waiting for you to get back…”
Set it off on Friday night with a dose of the rock…and I ainâ€™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 Bayâ€™s own Nightstick Justice, Desolation and a bunch more punk bands.
Myself, Iâ€™m gonna hit Eliâ€™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. Itâ€™ll be a blunted, beer-soaked, battery-chuckinâ€™ 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 youâ€™re a boss, a whiskey fanatic, or just a papered-up alcoholic, weâ€™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.
After Gurp City sinks the Belle (or drinks it dry — whichever comes first), itâ€™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.
If subterranean drunk rap is more your speed, donâ€™t miss Tha Alkaholiks with Hieroâ€™s A-Plus at CafÃ© Du Nord in SF. Itâ€™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 Iâ€™m still trying to figure out a way to hit both…but after Whiskeys of the World…well, thereâ€™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 Bitchinâ€™ Camaro and haul yer ass up to Tahoe for motherfucking Queensryche at Harrahs, and scream howling staccato like your nuts are in fucking vice.
If youâ€™re in Chico for the weekend, hit Nickâ€™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.
Thatâ€™s all for this weekend, Gurpos. If you know of something else going on, hit it up in the comments. Otherwise Iâ€™ll be seeing y’all out on the track…and Iâ€™ll probably be seeing double, too.
A giant thank you to all my rellies who made it to the Town for my art show last night, it was good to see all y’all up in there eating free pizza and drinking relatively cheap beer. And an extra special thanks goes out to all those who copped some original Faydirgle material. Also congratulations to Concizzle and Lauren for winning the super magnificent prizes. Peace. -Faydirgle
The usual hotness, plus new tracks from Grand Invincible, Gus McGuillicutty, Wale, Grip Grand, Snoop, and Nicolay & Kay. Set phasers to head-nod…

If you’re looking for something to do in SF tonight roll on through to the Mezzanine tonight and catch Z-Man along side Boac and DNAE Beats getting the crowd pumped for the Black Elvis himself, Kool Keith. I can’t call it though, but if youre lucky maybe Z will showcase a few of the dance moves he was doing in the St. Patty’s day video from Monday’s post. Fingers crossed.
Dirt Bag Dan interviews Big Concizzle for this Bay Area based rag. There’s some funny stuff in here, it covers everything from the Rap On The Rise contest to Conceits new career in Bakery Management. So check it out.
