"The Eastsiders are still rebuilding the pieces of their KVKL legacy team. They have a core group of veteran, skilled women who have kept the team together and recruited a bunch of young, athletic guys who have demonstrated a quick learning curve. Slowride is coming out of the “pool of death” battle tested and ready, with an impressive win over Jazzhaus, a narrow loss to Red Lyon, and a convincing win over interpool opponent Liberty Hall. PREDICTION: winner gets bragging rights on the podcast. Here’s for some Cougar trash talk E 9 S 8"
Richard happened to be at Free State last night where most of the Eastsiders had gathered to talk shit about the game. Here's what he overheard:
Honorable Reverend H: "The Eastsiders haven't lost a single game since I rejoined the team and I don't see it happening against a bunch of biker pussies."
See you at Hobb's tomorrow at 7:00.
If you missed Tuesday's NoBunny show but are still hoping to catch something utterly ridiculous this week, consider The Emotron at the Replay tonight. Yes, it sounds like a torture device in which one is strapped down and spun around and forced to listen to the entire oeuvre of Dashboard Confessional, but actually it's a one-man band described on the interweb as "a whirling dervish of high energy, synth-pop/punk songs thrown together in a sequencer and belched out live on stage in one of the most over the top, totally committed, maniacal, one man band performances in the history of music."
And here's a live review of an Emotron show:
"This dude is one of the best performers around, I swear. 7 outfit changes (including a leotard and zebra striped tights) and a crotch fire later we’re all sweaty and out of breath from dancing and smiling to classics like “As Your Teenage Vagina Bleeds,” “1989,” and other things that can probably get you arrested."
A chorus of Larryville hipsters: "Awww, this sounds great but I was planning to join all my friends at the Old Canes gig at the Jackpot tonight and talk loudly in the back during their entire set."
Your loss, hipsters.
Since Lawrence.com continues to suck, we find ourselves turning more and more to coverage in InkKC, which still produces a hard copy (whose first pages reveal that it is staffed almost entirely by women we'd love to bone) and features awesome contests such as the "Baby Gaga" competition, in which readers are asked to submit photos of their offspring dressed as Lady Gaga.
Chip: "I'll bet a lot of the entries come from the gay baby scene in Larryville."
Go here for a chance to win a contest and permanently scar your beloved children.
