Viva Las Vegas XV

With VLV right around the corner, a lot of people are doing a lot of last-minute prepping.  I know I am! I’ve got a haircut appointment in a couple of hours, and I’m going to go from my hair reaching under my nose, to being above my eyebrow. I haven’t gone that short in a long time, so let’s hope it works out for the best! Fortunately, I’m not leaving until tomorrow morning, so I shouldn’t be jamming my unmentionables in my suitcase last-minute.

But, here’s the gist of what I’m bringing:

Keepin’ the photo black and white, so y’all don’t know exactly what I’m wearing!

Pretty much got my bases covered:

– 10 pairs of underpants.
– 7 or so shirts.
– 3 pairs of pants.
– Black wife beaters.
– White undershirts.
– A handful of bandanas.
– A handful of socks. (Should pack more.)
– 4 pomades; Dax High & Tight, Stiffies, Black & White, and Dixie Peach. (I’m gonna add some Mr. Ducktail’s.)
– A fuck-ton of Altoids. (Y’all know I love mints!)
– 2 pairs of shoes. (A mistake I made last year, by bringing only ONE pair of boots. Of which, I am bringing again this year, but I’m going to go comfortable with my loafers!)
– A few days worth of protein powder.
– The only non-studded/non-pinned denim vest that’ll be seen at VLV.
– Stickers. (I should’ve bought more!)
– And whatever other toiletries that are not pictured.

I should be set, right?

If anyone wants to meet up, here’s a few gigs I plan on catching:

Big Sandy & The Fly-Rite Trio.
Luis & The Wildfires.

There’s a Tumblr meet up, set up by Miss. Charlie, 3:00 at Brendan’s .

Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys.
Duane Eddy.
The Polecats.
J.D. McPherson.

Remember, these aren’t all the gigs I plan on catching, but a few of em. So if you wanna meet up, just let me know!

Alright folks, I think this’ll be the last post until VLVXV is over. So, until the next time!

Pomp Hard!

  1. Hey Rebel Rouser! I just ran across your blog and tumblr account earlier this morning and have a new “love”..? (no homo) for your website and blog. One of the only sites I have seen that provides tips, tricks, & reviews. You sir got yourself a new life-long follower >:)

    Glad to see that the blog itself is still active as well. Nothing worse than a blog that runs its life and then one day falls off the face of the earth.

    • Hey Nathan,

      Thanks for the support! I’m glad you’re diggin’ it! As long as I have cats like you showing support, there’s no reason for me to give up on this blog!

  2. Super jealous. I’ve been wanting to see Luis & the Wildfires/The Polecats for the longest time but I don’t think they’ll be heading down to my neck of Texas anytime soon.

    • Chris,

      Man, I actually missed out on both of em! It would’ve been easier if I were sober, but where’s the fun in that? Just kidding, I’m sure VLV would be fun regardless, but ya know… “When in Rome!”

  3. Looked for you man… didn’t see you but pushed a ton of Bees Knees this weekend. Hopefully you aren’t feeling the same effects of Vegas that I am today!

    • Yo,

      Sorry we couldn’t link up! Glad you pushed the pomade. I sent a few people your way, so hopefully you get a few emails soon! I was dying yesterday, couldn’t get in the groove! My stomach is still depending on beer, burgers, and other non-healthy foods, haha! Hope you had a blast, man. If you head out there next year, we’ll definitely work something out.

      – Jan
