While I was out getting shit done, it seems I received the Roboto Boards highest award of Hate Machine. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the awards ceremony, but consider this post my acceptance speech so we can all move on.
Oh, Roboto, from you I expected MOAR.
Let me start off by dispelling some common myths:
What’s up with this Iron City Punk?
It’s been years since the last release, and each time it’s changed hands. I was approached to do Iron City Punk vol. 4, and we got permission from Debbie, Rich Bach, etc. to go ahead and use the artwork and name.
Many of the bands are in the studio finishing their tracks now.
I am creating my own Roboto.
One board to rule them all… Your posts will soon be contributing to the dystopia that is the Fooboto Boards. I personally certify the Fooboto boards are over 9000% better with our Nigerian hosting provider.
But in reality, Taylor Mervis was just trolling.
Just look at Pittsburgh’s Indymedia Website: It’s dead and it’s your fault.
What you neglected to mention was instead of whining, I went out and covered the G20.
Note: Rust Belt Radio is a very different story. Also, Ed Filowatt and Jeff with the Mattress Factory did a great job with the Crows system. Seriously, if you’re reading this: Pittsburgh’s Indymedia needs some major help, please volunteer if you can.
I do not live under the Birmingham Bridge, but I do enjoy drinking with the home-bums.
WTF Guys? Let me Google this for you… I have photos from events all over Pittsburgh and Philadelphia by different promoters (including Manny). I even held the The Discovery Zone venue in my garage when Taylor Mervis lost her old venue. While you’ve been discussing who I am, I’ve been in throwing Punk Island in New York (18 stages, 130+ bands, 6,748 attendees), threw together D.O.A. in Pittsburgh, and covered the Toronto G20. When’s the last time you left you hipster lair?
D.O.A. at 222 Ormsby was not Eviction Fest 2010. We put it at 222 Ormsby because we’re looking at strengthening the community, not our wallets. As Joey Shithead said, “You have a good thing going here. Don’t fuck it up.”
The final bill was:
- D.O.A. (Vancouver, CANADA)
- Destroy Everything (Chicago, IL)
- The Dirty South Revolutionaries (Charlotte, NC)
- Plastered Bastards (Pittsburgh, PA)
- Cast Out (Pittsburgh, PA)
- Burning Heads (FRANCE)
- Murder Majesty (Las Vegas, NV)
For $7? You all missed one hell of a show.
Stay tuned for more…
