Post Apocolyptic sounds

Yes! when the world ends the sounds left should be that of Vows in Ashes and Dumb. Why should there be anything else!

HOW fucking fun! I haven't been to a house party with a band in WAY way waaayyyyyyy too long. And what a better time to do something like that than a Halloween /B-Day party (props to Colleen for the festivities and gorish fun)!

I have seen Vows in Ashes ) before and this time was decidedly different because they actually pulled out a couple of cover songs. With Bassist JR and party Girl Colleen hitting the covers vocals respectively, it was different and of course loads of fun. Very nice to see a crowd into the music and enjoying like all did this evening. So you didn't make the gig/party and you are reading about this, will Suck It, you are gonna have to wait quite a while to see these guys again. Gauging from the response I would hope they would actually do something like this (along the lines of cover material) next time they do perform. It is always fun to hear a band make light of what they are and where they came from for the enjoyment of the audience.

Dumb and Daniel of Dumb was a real effin treat (no tricks). COMPLETELY unexpected and totally thrilling. But most of all you have to be fuckin kidding me...A TWO PIECE...REALLY!!??? I have seen plenty of three piece bands from the local punk scene (Deadly Reign), the regional favorite (Kegcharge) to the international (Rush and Triumph), but NEVER a two piece that was worth a shit...and DUMB is worth two shits at least.

Daniel tried to describe Dumb to me and it failed me until they started playing...then I got it. Very punk kind of feel with more irreverence in the lyrics than politics, what a joy! My buddy from Harlingen ( yo! What up Ivan?) had a great time which is always the point in going to see some live music in town. Dumb appears to be lining up a gig with A Good Rogering and you will have to keep you facebook ears peeled for that event and hit it up!
