Recap: Viva Las Vegas 15

Ahh…  Viva. Las. Vegas. What’s there to say about it? Even if you’re an elitist who now hates the event for all the newcomers who have “ruined” it, you’ve got to admit… it’s a ball. I mean, really, who doesn’t enjoy drinking with people from all over the world, hearing music we dig 24/7, and for us fellas, the babes??? I sure as hell dig it!

From waiting in that inevitable line for your morning coffee, talking to a burlesque babe about beavers, to passing out drunk in the afternoon, just to wake up and do it all over again an hour later, it’s safe to say that no matter how many years you have gone to Viva Las Vegas, you still won’t have enough time to do everything. While this was only my second VLV, it was far better than my first one, and I know it can only get better with the years and friends to come!

Upcoming Events.

Sorry for the lack of event flyers, folks. I tend to post up event flyers for ones I actually plan on attending. But as of late, I’ve been laying low and hermit crabbing on Friday/Saturday nights.

Summer is coming to an end, school will be back in session, but that doesn’t mean jack shit for rockabilly events! Some of the best ones happen AFTER summer!


I’ve stopped posting flyers for the Haight Street Hop, because it should’ve been embedded in your head, that it happens every first Friday of the month! But, they switched things up and now it’s every SECOND SATURDAY of the month.

To kick off the new change, there’s gonna be Burlesque Bingo! First of all, bingo? Hell yeah! I’ve won a good bingo game as a kid, so you can best bet that I’m gonna give you a run for your money!!! Second of all, burlesque babes??? Oh hell yes! And when you put the two together, along with some a lot of booze, you got yourself one hell of a Haight Street Hop! This is one that you definitely don’t want to miss!

This one is new to me, but it sounds amazing!

First of all, it’s in the Fillmore district. If you know the history of the Fillmore district musically and historically, you’ll know that this will be the place to be! A celebration for 100 years of San Francisco nightlife and fashion? If you ain’t comin’ in dapper, you ain’t comin’ correctly! I’m sure everyone will be in their best duds. Which makes me feel as if I should look for some new threads… Definitely will have the calender marked for this!

And of course…

The Bop! The lovely Bombshells always throw a great event. And every event I’ve gone to, at the 23 Club, has been rockin’! Throw the Chop Tops in there? This night is gonna be wild, loud, and just as good as the last one, if not better!

Hot-Rods, Hot Butts, Boobs, Booze & Dudes. The 2011 Hootenanny!

As the title says, who doesn’t love seeing all of that? Well, I guess I can do without the dude part… But everything else makes up for it!

Big thanks to the homie BiggMoe on Twitter, for sending over the link.

Definitely looks like the place to be at, this past weekend. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go. Oh well, I’m sure future events will offer just as many boobs and butts, if not more… At least I hope for more…


Here’s the video, nice little edit.  Looking forward to the narative video!

Recap: Booze, Broads, & Hot Rods.

Ok, I had a long post written out for the recap, but WordPress is fucking shit up, and I lost that post. So… I’m just gonna post a few pics. Oh well, at least it was a good night!

DRANK!I don't like to rip people off, but if you've been to this bar, you'll understand how hard it is to get a drink. So after I ordered and she told me "Ten dollars," you can bet your ass I was out of there, before she could whip out her calculator! A theif I am not, but an opportunist... Well... Let's just leave it at that...Mrs. & Mr. Self Edge.

Luckily Mr. & Mrs. Self Edge scored a good table, near the front of the stage.


Kim from The Bombshells chewing her gum and introducing Omar & The Stringpoppers to the crowd. Who the hell in the crowd didn’t know who they were???

Omar & The Stringpoppers.

Omar & The Stringpoppers rip it up. That girl with the cardigan and the red flower in her hair, was a wild one…

There’s something about Wild Records artists, that bring out the funkiest of funky people. At the Santos show, had some stringy dudes wiggling about. This time around, had this girl getting down with herself, like she were on extacy. It was something, to say the least…


Using Shazam at a bar? Nerding out. For those who care, it was Nick Curran & The Lowlifes – Dream Girl.

Luis & The Wildfires.

One word to describe this band. Punk rock. Fine, two words.

After all was said and done, I was drunk as fuck. Drunk enough for the lovely Miss Margot to actually lead me out on the dancefloor, and get a little two step on. But being as drunk as I was, I forgot every single dance move I learned. Sorry Raul! But that didn’t stop a local drunkard from getting down!

Margot & A Drunkard.

While he looks fine here, he ended up falling flat on his back, off of a barstool. I think that if Luis & The Wild Fires were still performing, the BOOM of his fall would’ve drowned them out. Poor guy. Not gonna lie, I kinda laughed. No worries, people laughed at me for dropping and breaking a beer bottle.

While this post isn’t eloquent as the original, it doesn’t take away from how badass these two Wild Records artists are. Even after having a baby, Rachelle and her man were out and about looking live. Definitely a great show and big thanks to The Bombshells for putting together this event.

Definitely had myself a ball. But I can promise you this, I won’t be double fisting Coronas like that, any time soon!
