Also, I Got A Shirt I Can't Wear In Public

So this week I saw a "psychobilly" band called The Goddamn Gallows.

Highlights from the show included fireballs launched from a flaming washboard, a song called Y'all Motherfuckers Need Jesus, and the drummer being dragged by his feet across the floor of the bar while two stage hands held a snare and tom in front of him.

So, points for showmanship, there.

I wish the sound had been better, because the songs sounded interesting, but I couldn't make out any lyrics at all. Everything was sort of a wash under the crash-ride cymbal, which wasn't miked, and the show was already ear-splittingly loud, so I don't know what they could have done... but still, it's the principle of the thing.

I wore mine to work under my scrubs. No one knew the profanities it contained! Of course, mine was not quite as... unique as yours.
