Let Black Lips Buy You Things [9/27/2007 03:32:00 PM]:
Dang. Y'know how sometimes you keep meaning to mention something, but something else always comes up, so you forget that first thing over and over and over again? I sure as hell do (come to think of it, that pretty much describes my life; what the hell was I talking about, here...?).
Like with this: Georgia rock-n-rollers Black Lips are coming to The Engine Room on Sat., October 6th, to rock the town back and to the left, and when they hit our fair city, they will be taking some lucky soul down to Buffalo Exchange on Westheimer to buy shit, hang out, and just generally do cool things.
Which could be pretty damn entertaining, if you're a fan of the band -- what I've heard off their new album, Good Bad Not Evil, is pretty good, and it'd be, uh, a little weird if you entered just for the clothes and won an afternoon with a band you don't actually like. Can you say "awkward"? (Just sayin', in case it crosses anybody's mind...) Oh, and according to their site, Buffalo Exchange are also giving out Black Lips samplers "with minimum purchase," however much that might be. (No, I have no idea how much $$$ the kids play for clothes these days; my metrosexual coworker blew $200 on a t-shirt a while back, and the ridiculous waste of it made me want to just sit in my chair & weep, I swear...)
Anyway, now for the "mea culpa" bit. If I'd actually posted this back when I meant to post it (like, say, 9/19 or so), you'd have had oodles & oodles of time in which to meander down to the Big W to enter the raffle. But sadly, the deadline to enter the raffle for the shopping spree is this Saturday, Sept. 29th, which only leaves you two measly freakin' days to get your near-urb-anite ass back to the 'hood you used to live in before the yuppies took over. Sorry 'bout that. If you want to snag some hipster clothes and/or meet the band, get on down & sign up quick-fast.
