Old Timers

"In the '60s, if you couldn't get laid at the Euclid Tavern, you couldn't get laid in a women's prison giving out pardons," recalls Cleveland Blues legend Mr. Stress.

That's from last weeks Scene. The Euclid Tavern is open again. I hope that means something, in the long run. There's a lot of rock bars in Cleveland. Dare I say too many? But there is that great east/west divide. Anyway, there's always room (and time) for another drink.

What else is coming back? Face Value. The last time these dudes did a reunion was the last time a decent show graced the Phantasy in Lakewood. I should have never typed the word 'decent' because that show totally fucking ruled. Killed In Action, Ringworm, Face Value. Oh man. This time around we are promised another night of pain as there will be TWO Erbas for the price of one; Upstab is on the bill along with a possible GC5 reunion. Maybe none of this sounds good to you but maybe you're memories are tied up in AP shows at the Grog.

Good times. Bad times. It's all the same and we love to rehash that shit.
