MELVIN BELI WHERE ARE YOU

I know we got a late start on this endeavor, but damn, it ain't easy. The whole point was to do it in April because April is Autism Awareness Month. I wanted to do it in April.

It's not going to happen in April.

I'm looking at May now. Just looking at the Trash Bar's may calendar, they have wednesday, May 10th open. I can do Wednesday May 10th.

Recent intelligence tells me that Strikes again might be available on May 10th. Strikes Again would be perfect for this show on so many levels it's completely ridiculous. I hope they make it.

I was looking to get The X's again. That made sense as well. A good buddy, a great band, a healthy draw for the cause. Alas, it seems The X's are a bit overextended gig-wise these days. I can only imagine. I saw them at The Continental on St. Patrick's Day. It was a madhouse. The band was on. They rocked the house.

I sent an e-mail to WWIX. I hope they can do the show. That would be awesome, as they are awesome, and it would be awesome if they were there.

The Ex-Con Doleeza set list is growing. Candidates include: Sister Ray, an Opal song I don't know the name of, Internet Axis of Evil, and I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend.

More to come......

Comments:
The Ramones' I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend? Why that one?
 
Do you have a problem with it?
 
No, not at all. I just never thought much of it as far as The Ramones went.
 
Well start now - you're gonna play it.

It's easy, E,A,B and C#m-A on the Chorus.
 
Rock on.

No prob. I have a copy at home.
 
You're going to sing as well, we all sing on this one.
 
I will tune the toms to E, A, and B, and the snare to C#m.
 
Tune the hi-hat to closed.
 
Oh, I'm going to open the hi hat ALL THE WAY.

It's payback time.
 
Ok. I think Bonzo Goes To Bitburg or The KKK Took My Baby Away would be better. But my vote goes to the easiest one, especially if I'm singing backing vocals.
 
God, I can't wait to quit this band.
 
I quit!
 
Newman!
 
Well then I quit too.
 
Can we reform as Kathleen Turner Overdrive? But only after playing a make-up gig as Ex-Con Doleezza.
 
I do like Kathleen Turner Overdrive. Damn, that's good.

Okay, I quit and un-quit.
 
I have to admit I stole that one. Jack Black said it in High Fidelity. But it wasn't use. He said at the end that they were going to be called Kathleen Turner Overdrive, but instead were something like Barry Jive and the Uptown Five. So I think it's fair game.
 
Rumours abound of a long awaited reunion of ViaSkyway. "Only for Autism!" a former unnamed band member was quoted as saying in a drunken stupor.
 
Newman!
