Admiral Bristols at basement concert

4/11: The Precious Little Mysteries, Head Full Of Music, and Slaughterhouse Knives at Beanie’s Bar on 28th:

“DIDN’T GO, WAS FIGHTING CRUCIAL BATTLE AT SEA. EMERGED VICTORIOUS, DUE TO MY ATTENDANCE TO THE BATTLE, RATHER THAN THE SHOW AT ‘BEANIE’S BAR’”

4/12: Glow Dome Fights the Blue Cube, Treat-Seekers, and iWinslow at Glitterman & Glitterman’s Wee Pub (the OTHER Glitterman and Glitterman’s Wee Pub, the one with live music)

“NEARLY MISSED FIRST BAND AS PARKING WAS CLOSE TO IMPOSSIBLE (HAD TO DOCK IN NEARBY BONGWATER PUDDLE) WAS STILL IN UNCLEAR HEADSPACE AFTER EMERGENCY NAVAL MEETING RE: OWNERSHIP OF EARTH’S OCEANS. CAN’T DESCRIBE IT. SO MANY HEROS IN ONE ROOM! NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES WERE ABOUND, AND THE TASK WE SET FORTH TO ACCOMPLISH WAS COMPLETED WITH RELATIVE EASE IN A PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT. COMPARED SWORDS AND SWAPPED SCAR STORIES AFTERWARD. ALSO, THAT MEETING I MENTIONED WENT WELL, TOO!”

4/14 Maque Truque (ex-members of Cackler), Korean Diorama, Storxxx (ex-members of Cackler, featuring Saul and Leslie Blister of Cackler), and This Wheat Thresher Threshes Wheat at The Cacklerhaus

“ATTENDED SHOW BUT MEMORY ONLY FILLED WITH POST-SHOW SKYPE SESSION WITH FIANCE DAPHNE, AND NOW THREE YEAR OLD SON, BARRY JR. DAPHNE’S TYPICAL SILENCE WAS DIFFICULT AS ALWAYS, BUT A NECESSARY REMINDER OF WHY A NAVY MAN SHOULD KEEP HIS SHORE-LEAVE STORIES OUT OF HIS LETTERS TO HOME. SON EXPRESSED DESIRE TO PLAY WITH DADDY’S MANY MEDALS AND ADMIRAL HATS WHEN I GET HOME. IF I EVER GET HOME. WONDERING IF COUNTRY KNOWS THE TOLL SHE TAKES ON HER NATION’S FAMILIES SOMETIMES. DECIDED WONDERING THIS MADE ME APPEAR TO HAVE THE WEAKNESS OF SOMEONE IN THE RESERVES (AND IN MY TRADEMARK ADMIRAL HAT NO LESS!) ALSO WONDERING: SINCE WHEN DID CACKLER BREAK UP?”

4/15: Dude Ranch Despair, Croqpot, Folly Over The New Secret (acoustic set), and A Short History Of My Ass at Nature’s Way Cafe on 59th and Dover (Next to old Tetley Manor)

“WAS LIKE “OH, NUH-UH” WITHIN TEN SECONDS. BOUGHT A 7” UPON EXIT EXCLUSIVELY TO DISPOSE OF IT.”

4/23: The Stink Stirrers, The New Fableton Irish Spring Steppers (last show with lead-stepper Briar), Slut Strangler (first show with new bass player Briar), and the Crickety-Splitz at Tavern Of The Mind on the corner of Belsey and Verrichaise

“SKIPPED IT. SPA DAY. TIME TO MYSELF. ‘BRISTOLS’ TIME.’ ONE CAN’T SEE A SHOW WITH CUCUMBERS OVER THEIR EYES.”

4/29: Bunkle Uck, Ding Dong Academy, 4 Billion Batteries, Chris and his Anthemums, and I Now Pronounce You Dumb As Hell at Chapel 41′s Undisclosed Belfry Area (EARLY show)

“MISSED BANDS BY 1800 HOURS. SAT IN RENTED KIA SPORTAGE AND LISTENED TO THIN LIZZY/ZZ TOP MIX STUCK IN TAPE DECK. WARBLED SOUND AND STATIC REMINDED ME OF BOTH SIMPLER TIMES AND OF INSTANCE WHERE FAMILY DOG ATTEMPTED TO EAT SAID TAPE, WITH UNSUCCESSFULL RESULTS. PROCEEDED TO MISS DOG.”
