Luke Sick writes:
I got there at around 8 to help Dan load in the P.A.s and Fist Fam had already been there for an hour drinking (what was that red stuff y’all were drinkin out of those mason jars? Vodka Cran?)… Bad Touch was a heavy introduction to the evening… when Mean Dave starts playing those riffs where his shit is tuned to sound like a guitar and bass playing together my brain just says: “Get whiskey now!” Then Crazy Eric Isley comes out from behind the kit to rap to Dave’s drumming as well as his own self-produced beats. These dudes have mega-talent and natural game, a breath of fresh air in Gurp City, their song “Another Blackout” has got G.C. anthem all over it…
Then the 7 drunk rednecks known as Fist Fam took the stage and broke shit loose… these cats are so fuckin’ hungry in this game fools are gonna have to step up they shit when they start playin in the City… Peace to Philo, Gus, Merk (funny motherfucker hittin on the wrong beezie, I shoulda done a better job of heading you in the right direction, the brunette not the blond! ha that shit was funny), J Easy, Jonboy, Ronnie Mack, and I already forgot other dudes name (Gus help me out, I’m sure I’m spelling all this shit wrong too) thanks for being the rowdy ass crowd all by yourself and then taking the stage and showin fools how that shit’s done too… I’m really looking forward to their album, it’s finah be a summer smash.
G.I. was drunk, but i barely remember us kinda rippin’ on style is bonkers
Seasons of the Sick became a jello shot orgy of curse words, pimp game, karoke and sexual exploits, they’re like the west coast group home, their song everyday I smoke and drink forties over that Vrse Murphy beat is a serious sing along classic… and they always bring whisky too, thanks for covering Fuck You Style homies that shit was nice…
Last thing I remember was sitting on the edge of the stage using my finger as a spoon to shovel green and red jello shots into my mouth during the S.O.T.S set, and then vaguely begging a ride from E-Rock and Mori (sp?), and then forcing them to come in my house and listen to Triple Threat Three and DITC and new GI, sorry if I was all wasted talkin yer ear off y’all but I just had to get real Luke Sick for an evening, Thanks to fools who stayed relatively sober and got people home safe, thanks to all the groups, for comin to my neck of the woods to rock for less than 30 people, thanks to Dave for throwin the shindig, next time we do one there, y’all need to make the trip we’ll hook up some cheap mo-mos in Redwood City or something, the place is perfect for GC up in the mountains furtrapper style yo!

    Across the bottom of that stain-glass window that Sole is standing in front of it says: “Whiskey Hill” The Pioneer is a classick!

    mean dave extends thanks to everyone who came out and played and apologized for starting the show so late. not so mean now, is he?

    i didn’t even realize we were up in there well past 2am and the bartender was cool with all the jello shots flying everywhere and shit. i’ve been in that spot before where the folks working there have been total dicks (actually last time i played they i swore i never would go back).

    and shit, everyone got paid even.

    i gotta big up mike d from whores of war for staying sober and transporting all the gear to and from the gig safely.
