Andy sent me a compelling tale of heartbreak and being hammered, of betrayal and lit-up anuses, of mistaken identity and stealing ladders from venue owners. With no further delay, please read on.
"First off, I wanna say the behind the scenes for Cemetery Pogo is really cool and I'm glad I read it...I had NO idea the zombies were Final Summation. Also, the Secretins story is amazing....it just shows me HOW bad the scene is up here. We could never ever organize something like that (although we don't exactly have a band to rally around also, but whatever). The most that ever happened was "The Damages Army" when us and all our fans got into a fight with a buncha ghetto kids.
The Damages tried like HELL to get on the show, but in the end, The Hollywood Nightmares stole our spot (actually much like they did the last time The Secretions came through, hmmm). Anyway....I was kind of upset about our spot being taken, but I was going to go to the show anyway. THEN it got changed to a 21+ show....and that really pissed me off....so I got really mad at them and vowed never to go to another show and stopped listening to them for a while.
After about half a year, I was back to normal though. In retrospect I realize it was dumb and they really didn't have much control over the venue or who they played with...So SECRETIONS, I'M SORRY! Even though they had no idea.
Then they went back to the vans, (which we dropped off at Marky's house for safety reasons)and got the rest of their whiskey. At this point, we were all trying to settle down and go to bed while Mickie was playing guitar hero.
