Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery.

First off, the next two weeks are going to be the poo doo dong as far as shows go. Yes, poo doo dong. I made it up, and I think it gets the point across. One that's not to be missed is FRIDAY, November 3rd at 10 High where Gates of Berlin will be playing with Tentonic and Jil Station. This may not sound like an extraordinary thing...a show at 10 High on a Friday night, but you're not taking into consideration that there will be FREE BEER from 9:00-11:00. No, that's not a joke. Peroni will be out there giving it away for the showgoers. The holidays are coming up, this is a stupendous way to get wasted on someone else's dime while you save to buy your grandma those cool knitting needles she's been wanting so she'll fit in with the rest of her quilting circle. But that's not the only reason you should be there. Gates of Berlin will give you a new reason to love rock-n-roll, and Jil Station will make you wish you were young again so that you could swagger around like them.

And for the imitation part. Last night, I wound up at the 585 to see The Beggars' Guild and Tim Brantley play the big Halloween show, which is why I smell like hashbrowns right now, because a trip to Cracker Barrel was imperative this morning to soak up the hangover I now have from all the free beer. Anyways, the show was great, and for whoever is following, Tim Brantley doesn't suck when the normal fans aren't there. I actually enjoyed it last night. There. Probably the funniest thing I have ever seen, though, is the costume that Paul Warner from the band Nova Milo came up with. Speaking of Nova Milo, they're awesome. I can't figure out why I'm just now becoming aware of them here recently. Check out the songs on their MySpace page I linked for you. I lurve "I'm Your Tiger" and "Love in Space" is kind of this slightly country rock sounding white boy rap. I've never heard anything like makes me want to bob my head and sing along and dance, and if you're keeping up, you know I don't do those things. Well, I don't do them sober.

Anyways, here's a visual of the costume:

Wondering what he is? He came dressed as Tim Brantley. And people were actually mistaking him. Priceless.
