In other scene news

I have confirmed reports that, New York punks, Left Over crack, gave Eureka the shaft on Sunday, when the band called promoters 20 minutes before the doors opened and informed them they were not coming up for the show.

Allegedly the lead singer broke his arm and he couldn't perform, although I have a source who has a source who said she saw them play over the weekend in the city and the singers arm was already broken.

So... yeah, here's my current Shit List:
  • Left Over Crack
It's not that I really wanted to see them, but I talked up their show and we don't get bigger punk bands through here that often, and canceling 20 minutes before the doors open is a big jerky thing to do.

And in other news:
The Ravens failed to play at the Stonewall celebration on Friday because their drummer, Matt Marek, got vertigo. No joke folks, I heard it from BrianWioda (guitarist).

According to wikipedia:
Vertigo (from the Latin vertere, to turn, and the suffix -igo, a condition, i.e., "a condition of turning about"[1]) is a specific type of dizziness, a major symptom of a balance disorder. It is the sensation of spinning or swaying while the body is stationary with respect to the earth or surroundings.

So he could not play drums.

A big get well soon from this rock journalist.

Hmmmmm . . . "Left Over Crack"
It seems a lot hangs on interpretation of the word 'crack" in this context. If it refers to the illegal chemical substance which derives from cocaine, then one would assume that the band is edgy, dangerous, and exciting in an addictive sort of way. BUT it seems as if we have all been reading them wrong. "Crack" must refer to what you see above your plumber's pants when his back is to you.
So, cheer up Eureka! You have been spared a tedious hour of staring at someones "leftover butt crack".
