It’s sounds like if Haçeteria was still at Deco Lounge (and thus Deco Lounge still existed) and there was a psycho on the loose, dragging unsuspecting dancers from the dance floor down to the dungeon — for more fun.
Well here’s what I get for never reading the comments (it’s like the #2 rule of blogging) — rock ‘n’ roll legend Mike Watt commented on a post of mine back in 2013 and I didn’t know about it til this week.
On the occasion of Thee Oh Sees’ 3-night residency at the Chapel this week (which concludes tonight), I was looking through some old coverage and came upon “Here’s an algorithm up your asshole,” our report from the time they opened for Iggy and the Stooges at a tech conference in a park in San Jose.
(Went back through the photo archives and found this shot, by our own Jess Kelso, of Watt making the low flow, back there behind Iggy.)
petey on bass for the oh sees was truly a righteous man but taking nothing from the man w/a beat in his hand for the stooges. glad to work the at a park where besides all the silicone whatever this article already talks about but where a nightmare like the last cali lynching ever was…
"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.
One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
