Mag 26 2006, 2:29Last night I went with folk musician extrodinaire/ my wonderful roommate Samantha Crain to see her perform at the Sober Grounds Coffee House in Oklahoma City on 31st and May. It was an open mic kind of thing so she played three songs. She started out with Devils In Boston (of course). Then she played Hold Each Other Up, which I loved...a lot. The she ended with 400 Blows. Good show. I love her.

Mag 6 2006, 18:59last night pickle, rachel and i traveled to bartlesville to watch Daylight Strategy compete in the battle of the bands at the wherehouse. we got there a little late and missed the first band, but i'm sure they were great...because like everyone at this show was great. the first band we saw was Bleed Them Dry. they were amazing! three vocalists (one of which on megaphone, it was great), three guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. yep, 8 members. they even had one bassist missing. next was clarion calling. they were...meh. Then Burning Theory, which i don't remeber too much more than they had shirts that read "OklaFuckinHoma" and i thought it was halarious. Then daylight strategy! they were really great and all the songs went over really well. i was happy that kiah performed her song, she's getting really comfortable on stage. Then a band called beneath the crash which consisted of 3 eighth grade girls. they were really pretty good for eighth graders, it will be exciting to see where they go. then a band that seems to be really popular there in bartlesville called Fairlane.
So fairlane won first place and bleed them dry got third. Daylight Strategy won second place! it was so exciting and i'm really proud of them.
Mag 5 2006, 15:38Last night was John Vanderslice in norman at the opolis. it was a great great show. Emperor X was the first opening band and this guy was amazing. like seriously blew my mind. he was pretty crazy, or in the words of the guitarist for Minus Story
"fucking insane." it was wonderful. and of course we headed to pita pit afterward to remember the time Rocky Votolato played with us there.
