Why I stay out of NE pool halls.
Went to see The Shondes tonight at the Towne Lounge. It was alright. The people in the band and the people watching the people in the band were more interesting than the music. So that's not so bad. Not so happening for me musically. But did i tell you that they seem really nice and queer and fun? When I heard the title of this song, i was super wishing for Shirelles/Carole King cover. That, my friends, is showing my age.
The Shondes - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
But I've been meaning to tell you... there's a bar called Roscoe's somewhere in Portland that has thrown down the billiards gauntlet. pool tournament. If, after ascending to the finals of the tournament, in the final round, you lose? You have to get a tattoo of a flaming dolphin. If the Portland Mercury is to be believed, two people have suffered this fate thus far. It reminds me of hearing about a mayan sport that was sort of like basketball and if you lose you get human sacrificed. I guess that's worse than having big gay Al flipper on your thigh.
