Sunday was the book release party for Live at the Masque: Nightmare in Punk Alley. It was fully sold out, and even those who are in with the in crowd were embarassed to be left standing outside, waiting for a friend to get them in. The party went on all afternoon, all evening, and all night. Everyone seems to have forgotten that we aren't 17 years old anymore. By the time we arrived at 7:30, hoping to see The Eyes and The Plugz, people looked as though they had been at a Grateful Dead concert all day. Almost everyone was burnt out and some people were already taking off. The band schedule was all fucked up, big surprise. So we could only hope to see some of the Plugz set before I had to bail at 1130 for work. Of course, my breath of fresh air, Tequila, can somehow party for days at a time so she got me all revved up.

The first band we saw was the Controllers. I had always put them in the same category as the Skulls and didn't think I liked them, but I was really into them. Really into them.
