I love Mascis as well, but I enjoyed Lou Barlow's stuff better. Bakesale is a hot record.

I got to see the Pixies play in a tiny club in Rochester, NY during their Surfer Rosa tour. outstanding show before I knew they were my favorite band.
I think I even teared up a little while watching the 2004 reunion tour DVD, Pixies Sell Out, when all the youngsters in the crowd were singing along while the band played.

I am jealous. I saw them at Riverfront Coliseum (now US Bank Arena). I would've loved to have seen them back then at an intimate venue. I can only imagine how insane it would've been at Bogart's (Cincy boy here. It's our long time small venue). Even still, their performance was incredible.

Just when I thought this place was dead, Zam brings back the BEST AVATAR EVER and you guys start talking Pixies. Damn it, I'm always a day late and a dollar short.

YOU FUCKING DIE!!!

The worst show I ever saw for the band being incompetently wasted was the Replacements. They were so hammered that they couldn't play, not a single one of them. For some reason when I was 19 years old it seemed like the coolest thing I had ever seen.

The I saw the Butthole Surfers and learned what the coolest thing I had ever seen really looked like.

California. That CD was in my truck and amongst the casualties when it was broken into 8 or so years ago. Thanks for reminding me how much I enjoyed that album. Need to pick it up again...

I went to see Stone Temple Pilots back in high school when they were touring with the Flaming Lips and the Buttholes. The Lips opened and blew my mind (first time I'd heard them). STP played, and I walked away (never listened to them again). The Buttholes came on around sunset, and, if I couldn't see my head in the mirror today, I could swear my head exploded.

Holy Chit McIlroy gets paid $2 million just for his appearance in a tournament. Do any DG'ers get paid for their apprearances at events?

I would have loved to post this on DGCR but I am no longer able to access the site.

Some probably do. I wouldn't be surprised if KC, Feldberg, Jenkins, Doss etc have a fee for smaller tournaments. It may be only something like $200. but it still keeps them in the black. add that to their "guaranteed" win of said C or B tier event (~$75 on the high side,) and whatever cash they can draw from selling discs out of their trunk (guessing ~$35-75.) It can end up being about a $500 weekend, not too shabby for our little hippy sport.

EDIT: ITT I realized I could listen to Mike Patton sing the phone book and be thoroughly entertained.

Breaking DGCR news!

Discraft and Innova are now discs for noobs. No one with any level of skill throws them anymore. Anyone in the know knows that MVP and Lat64 make the best discs.
