NXNE: Day 1

It's that time again.  The time where I test the limits of my liver, ear drums, and soul.

Before we even get started tonight, I need to come clean.  I licked a man's eyeball tonight.  Right... I feel better already.

So, after an accounting presentation (yes... I am not damning the man, I am the man) the Rogues met at the studio to continue our plot against the earth.  After a good little session, we wandered over to the Bovine Sex Club.

We arrived in time to see !Attention!.  I was determined not to drink tonight.  That didn't go so well. Attention had a pretty solid instrumentation, but were lacking in the vocal department.  I can't pinpoint exactly what it was about the guy's voice, but something didn't sit right with me.  I guess they just sounded a lot like everything we all listened to a the end of high school, which isn't necessarily a bad thing... it just was?

Drinks were drank.

Apres ca, Dig it Up hit the stage.  I'd followed these gents before thanks to Exclaim, and they did not disappoint.  I'd say more, but SOMEONE bought me Jager shots.  (Fuck you, someone).

Around the time *INSERT BAND NAME HERE* was on stage, I may or may not have bought more alcohol for more people.  Either these guys were extremely awesome, or I was extremely awesome (read: bagged).  Had to be one or the other.  Something Bronx-esque in there.

In case you hadn't noticed, this year, I decided to review NXNE the night of.  My plan is that every night this week, I will come home from the bar, and review the show I just witnessed.  If you think this alconzo style of reviewing is going to be painful to read, let me put it to you this way; tonight was one of the tame nights.

See you tomorrow!
