    Here is an online reveiw of one of our shows. It's like I always say, a good bribe goes a long way! :D I'd love to know who wrote this:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I headed upstairs to see El Pus, who the Atlanta Journal-Constitution touts as the next big thing to come out of Atlanta. (Why i am trusting their word on this i have no idea!) This is a sort of rap/rock fusion act. They had two rappers, a guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. The bassist was playing supple, yet complex, things that were simply amazing to hear. He might, in all honesty, be one of the best bassists i have ever seen live. No joke -- the man knew what he was doing with that instrument, and it sounded great. The rapping was okay, and the drumming was pretty good, but the guitarwork is what most struck my attention (after the bass). When i got to Heaven they were already playing some sort of mellow rock tune with rapping. Then they did another very similar tune that really shined for its nice bass line. Then they covered Billie Jean for a bit, ended it suddenly, and went into a hard rocking tune wherein it sounded like the guitarist was playing the riff from Iron Man. Then it got even more interesting when one of the rappers grabbed a guitar and the band tore into a loud and fast song that sounded, by god, like a long lost Dead Kennedys' tune. With rapid-fire rapping! YEAH! Very awesome.

  13. i have a relative (an artist) who doesn't go around giving autographs, instead he draws a really good pen drawing on one of the napkins and leaves it as a tip!

    btw, congrats woodchuck on the cool review, i'll have to see you next time you come through northern wisconsin...
