Ok so we're still working on a possible Pietaster's/Voodoo Glowskulls Show down here in the Sticks. In the meantime here's some pics I took from Steve Jackson and the boys at the International SKa Circus. Juddirishbradley.com
If you can go to this next year Go! -I will be there and it was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. The unfortunate part was that The Toasters, Fishbone, Voodoo and The Pie boys ripped the the hell outta the headliners (Reel Big Fish and The Skatalites). If you want info on the show down here drop me a line.

Just a wee update:

Although it's on the same night as a certain Holiday Sail show at Sol Arts...HALF-STACHE and the TIJUANABEES will be playing at the Cell THIS SATURDAY MARCH 4TH! $5, kiddies. Good times.

Also, SKA BRAWL is comming up fast. I'm not quite sure just HOW fast, but it's pretty fuckin fast. I can't check on it right now, thanks to myspace being iffy...

Danny Winn and the Earthlings will be playing an over 21 event on St. Patty's day (march 17). Don't ask me where, I have no idea right now. But I'm 100% certain it's on their Myspace event list. :)

AAAAND let's not forget about SKA PROM 2006! I believe this will take place on May 20th. I hear it's at the El Rey, but I could be wrong about that as well.

If anyone cares to elaborate on any of the above events, or add to the list, PLEASE DO! It would be much appreciated :)

Hey guys! Sorry I've been flaking out on you lately :(
Just wanted to let you know before I forget, that December 30th marks the return of The SPANK!
That's right, ladies and gents, The Big Spank will be playing their first show in over forever with the likes a couple of other awesome Albuquerque Ska bands, and Holiday Sail, which isn't ska (sadly) but still quite good I must say^^
In anycase, more information as soon as I get it. I know there's a flyer comming up somewhere, if any of you happen to get it please post!!!
Alrighty then. See you cats around!

Car for sale? [01 Nov 2005|10:04am]

[ mood | anxious ]

Hello Abq.
You wouldn't happen to know anyone selling a car, would you?
I am in DESPERATE need of an automatic for less than $1000. Any car will do, as long as it runs well and doesn't need (internal) repairs. Please please please, I beg of you, if you can help me out that would be delightful!

Thanks!

Ok, so it's not 100% ska. But Half Stache is! And we all love Half Stache. Yes we do.
Also, My band (Holiday Sail) will be playing that evening. Just though I'd throw that in...

AAAND It's to benefit the Homeless. That's the best part, hands fuckin down. Bring $5 OR 5 cans of non-perishable food items OR a blanket. That's all it takes. Come on. You can get canned food at Big Lots for less than 50 cents. No joke. And feel free to bring more than that if you can. That would be awesome!
Thanks Guys!


Oh, and don't forget the gargantuan DW&E CD release party on November 11th at the El Rey (Next door to the Golden West and the Launchpad)!

Last night's show was amazing. Hope you all were able to make it! Danny Winn and the Earthlings were awesome as always, Half-Stache kicked major ass, and the Toasters rocked the house!
There were times when the entire Launchpad was one huge skank pit! It was awesome.

See you all at the DW&E CD release show on November 11th. That's gonna be flippin HUGE!

HEY! DANNY WINN AND THE EARTHLINGS ARE HAVING THEIR CD RELEASE AT THE EL REY ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!!
NOVEMBER 11TH!!!!
AAAAAND THEY'RE PLAYING THIS MONDAY AT THE LAUNCHPAD!

Pass this around if you can.


From DW&E:

We are so happy to announce that our CD release party for our brand new album entitled "...And the mission begins" will be held on Friday, November 11th, at "The El Rey Theater". This IS an all age show. Also confirmed on the show is Made in Bangladesh, No Regrets, and Half Stache.

This new cd of ours is enhanced, meaning it includes a 14 minute QuickTime movie called "The making of The Mission" along with a bunch of new songs that have never been performed out live till this show. The movie contained is an entertaining look at what it was like recording the album. Not only will we be selling the new CD for just a measly $10.00 at the show, but we'll also be raffleing off one of our Super Secret promotional DVD's that no fan has ever seen (but probably has shots of some of you in it) for just $1.00 a ticket, and of course you can buy as many tickets as you'd like.

So please help spread the word on this show as it will probably go down as being one of the biggest local CD releases ever!

PS: Don't forget the huge ALL AGE show this Monday, Oct 17th with ska legends "The Toasters", Danny Winn and the Earthlings, Half Stache, and No Regrets, at "The Launchpad"!

Everyone should go the benefit show in Edgewood next Saturday and see Danny Winn and the Earthlings there(and other bands that I'm not recalling right now) because I can't because my boss and my job SUCK. Also, go see Streetlight that night and cheer on all of my bestest friends that are Made In Bangladesh.

That is all.

A steal of a Deal ( Dave Matthews show) [29 Aug 2005|03:05pm]

chasemice
A friend bailed out on me at last minute due to his work schedule.

I just want to get rid of his one ticket and a nice hotel room for a really low price. (I don't want the stress, I just want back a little pocket money and will happily take the loss.)

Here's the Deal:

August 31st @ 7pm at Albuquerque, NM (Cricket Pavillion)
ONE (1) Dave Matthews Band concert ticket (reserved sitting (middle/middle), which
was originally $59.00 plus all those fees = $73.00
But... I am willing to take only $25.00 bucks.

Also:
I have an "already-paid" room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (4 star with pool), and regular price is $129 bucks (a double) -- But I am willing to give it up for $35.00

Even Total for both ticket and room =$60

So...
You can go on your own with this one reserved seating ticket ---- or you can buy a 2nd ticket for friend for $39.00 (lawn) ticketbastard (still available) and go with friend. Either way it is a steal.

If interested let me know

There will be yet another free Danny Winn and the Earthlings show on July 8th at the 4th street mall (Central and 4th, downtown).
Come have a good time! This is one of the best skankin spots I've experienced!

And thanks to all who showed up to DW&E's shows this weekend! Especially today at the Downs. Gracias for supporting the local ska scene!
