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:

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

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

Saturday:
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! therebelrouser@yahoo.com

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

Pomp Hard!

Upcoming Events.

Alright, enough with laying low. Here are a few rockin’ events to check out!

This Friday, at The Uptown, Deke Dickerson will be playing. Definitely gonna be a good show!

Our friends at Royalty Tattoo Collective will be throwing their first art show. And how is this pertinent, you ask? It’s simple… IT’S A TRIBUTE TO STAR WARS!!!

And lest not forget, the following week, Viva Las Vegas 15 will be a hoppin’! I’ll definitely be there. So whoever wants to hang out and drink a few, just shoot me an email! therebelrouser@yahoo.com

And right after that, the annual Booze, Broads, & Hot Rods show will be in full effect! In Burlingame, no less! Nick Curran was supposed to perform there, but as we all know, he’s fallen (again) on hard times. All we can do is hope for the best and wish for Nick to finally kick this shit in the ass, so he can get back to making the ladies sweat!

But, that doesn’t mean they don’t have some badass bands lined up and ready to go!

Signs & Signifiers.

With the recently announced band line up for Viva Las Vegas 15, people have freaked! There’s a lot of familiar names on this line up, that have been making ladies change their panties and guys… well, I don’t know what some of you guys do, but you can let your imagination run wild. Though I missed a majority of the bands I wanted to see last year, the line up was real good. But this year, oh man… Let’s just say, I’m pretty fuckin’ stoked!

There will be a lot of great bands performing this year. Including: Big Sandy & The ORIGINAL Flyrite Trio (OH FUCK YEAH,) Omar & The Stringpoppers, Billy Harlan, The Polecats, Nick Curran, Jack Baymoore & The Bandits, and the list goes on and on and on. For the semi-full band list, click here.

With events like this, everyone will have their favorites marked on their planners and iPhones. Since a lot of these bands are scattered around, you better know who you’re gonna see and when you’re gonna see em, and where!

 For me, I plan on making up for last year and will catch every band I want to see, even if that means staying sober for the whole trip! Well, maybe not entirely sober… There’s one band that I will not miss…
