blackblack Played And It Was Special

So blackblack played in San Diego this past Saturday. It was great! I was really looking forward to this show. So when Diva called me to tell me that her drummer was sick I was bummed, but then she worked it out and I was all, "whew!". I'm always a nervous wreck at the beginning of things that I book. I want them so badly to work out well that I can't relax. So I hurriedly greeted them and showed them in. We had introductions, met the drummer replacement...nice dude from the UK. Met the guitar player...nice dude from Ariel Pink's band, Haunted Graffiti. Met the nice friend. And met Diva for the first time in person. Ok. So now it's time to start drinking and RELAX. People started coming in and the place was getting packed. GOOD. Brandon, Chuck and all the dudes were getting there and me and Brandon decided to go urinate. We're all chatting side by side and that drummer comes in and wer're all like. "zip the lips". You know? When we leave Brandon was like , "Dude that's her dad.", and I was all, "Oh DUH." I was so nervous and stressed when I met the band that it didn't dawn on me that her dad, Kevin Haskins from Bauhaus, was filling in. You know? The "guy from the UK"? Well they practiced once that day only. And you know what? They were PERFECT. Funny nobody knew. He's the one in the photo with the goat skull mask.

Yeah dude. Craig was telling me that -- and I was all, her dad??!?!? This story is a good ass story. You are so cool. San Diego is so cool. I miss that place. Work is seriously sucking today and I feel like your blog is a good place to vent.
