Scars Like These Live @ Connie’s 9-30

Hello my friends,

I finally uploaded it to YouTube, but here it is for your enjoyment.  I thought it was a good show especially after 2 months of not playing shows. My drumming is pretty solid on here despite all the tech/sound probs we had on stage. Apparently the audience didn’t hear the weird moments like the wah-wah sound on the bass and a riff that sounded like a different riff and I played a different beginning beat. Thank goodness. Unfortunately no clip here of our cover of The Misfits – “Where Eagles Dare“.  This was filmed by this guy Kevin of Z191 Philly Bands Global Teleradio
Watch out for the guy from The Delfonics whispering something to my bass player. Whaaat?

We will eventually have better, individualized song clips than this mess. But for now, here’s the rough copy.  You probably had to be there to see how hilarious it truly was. But either way, enjoy!

I also want to write In Memoriam‘s for George Romero and Tobe Hooper. We shall see.

Keep checking back.


SLT in Bensalem tomorrow

Hello my friends,

Scars Like These has a show tomorrow night in Bensalem, PA. I’ve actually never been up there. It’s also a far drive from where we are coming from. However, it should be a good time. We are playing with those guys Old Fezziwig, who were the main band when Terminal Frost did its one and only show. I bet the guy might remember me, and be all surprised to see me in Scars, haha. We will see. I’m definitely stoked. I like when we do shows on Saturday nights. Even better, I don’t even need to bring my kit except maybe a part or two.
What’s also odd is that between this show coming up and the last one, we haven’t practiced at all. But we fucking killed it the last 2 shows, and I am disappointed in not coming across any pictures or footage! Well except these pics with Frank from LowBrau Bastards, but where am I? D’oh!

So anyway, it’ll be fun. I’ll be putting more stuff up soon.

Updates July

Hello friends,

I didn’t really get around to posting about the July 8 and July 14 Scars Like These shows, but that will be up soon.

Also, the Scorsese movie reviews are still happening. I made it up to Last Temptation of Christ and its still a lot to write.
I also plan to write an In Memoriam for the great George Romero RIP. I feel bad that I didn’t get around to doing it for Bill Paxton. But ya never know! I’ve been trying very hard to get back into writing. It hasn’t been easy with work and the band. I always wind up apologizing to my own blog!

Well anyways, that’s going on and my 32nd birthday coming up. Damn I feel old.

More posts soon my friends!!

Scars back at The Tusk tonight

Hello friends,

Finally another show. We are going back to The Tusk on South Street again tonight. This time we are playing first and not last. The weeks prior to tonight’s show have been very rough. We’ll see what happens!
After this show, we got a show back at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE where my first show was. Can’t wait.
More posts to follow. 🙂

Scars at the Tusk, and Scars Tonight

Of course I fucked up and couldn’t find enough time to put my review of the Scars Like These show at the Tusk.
Well here it is:
We got to Wooly Mammoth’s on South St. and let me tell you, it has been awhile since I’ve been to South Street. I forgot it was almost the equivalent of NYC’s 42nd St. in its heyday.
But yea, interesting show. Not as much equipment to bring like last time, which was nice. But we had to go up and down the steps many, many times (The Tusk is upstairs at Wooly Mammoth’s).
The other bands playing seemed heavier and more in the vein of metal – my kinda crowd. Still, not a lot of people but I will tell you the bar setting was really nice, and there were couches around and a decent stage if you want to call it a stage.
Despite the small crowd and the last minute decision of covering “The Cro-Mags – We Gotta Know” again, we got to debut our new song, “S.L.T.”.
The response was great. We got a couple people dancing to it. That made me feel good. Unfortunately, I don’t think any pictures were taken, but there were some video clips filmed that I still haven’t seen yet.

Okay, so tonight marks the 5th show with this band. It’s at RP McMurphy’s on MacDade Blvd, which isn’t far from where I live. It’s a Sunday night, but we’ll see what happens. Its a benefit show we are doing for a friend who will be joining us on stage later in the show. This will be very interesting.

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys. Its been very busy, but after this show there won’t be another one for a while. This will give me time to write more blog entries for the future. I got a lot of movies I want to review.
Keep checking.
