Tomorrow Night! We're playing with a couple touring bands out of Portland OR, Stress Position and Born A Lot, and local favorites PLAN A at Harold's Place USA. Head over, 21/over, $5. Show starts at 8pm.
Last night in Fullerton, got the chance to catch a set by HIP PRIEST (top) and TERMINAL A (below) at a little great DIY venue hidden behind a industrial stip. Wish I could have stuck around for the rest of the night...
Thanks once more to the LITTLE A'LE'INN in Rachel Nevada, Brent BMG @AlienBuilt, everyone who attended, everyone who volunteered in every capacity! The Horse Magazine for the published media, Ricky Bongos, Retro Weirdoz, Douche, The BBQ guy, the Raffle donations, and everyone I'm forgetting. I've been probed one too many times perhaps... This DIY Grassroots event couldn't have happened without you.
DONATE AND CREATE! I'll gladly keep making Brobots and Alien Invaders to sacrifice in the Bonfire as long as you keep coming and we're able to keep it free from the disease of the corporate chopper exploitation. If there's ever a day you need a wristband and have to pay $50+ to sleep in the dirt, I'll bow out. I don't eat margarine and I won't drink your Kool Aid. That's nothing I want to be part of. But of course, you already know all this... wink wink.
What can I say about the Alien Run Raffle? This years tank from Kyle's Kustoms was again, incredibly awesome!!! I really really want to get a picture next year of all three tanks lined up on bikes in front of out next (pre ignition) bonfire sacrifice! I think that would make the perfect shot. I don't know everyone who donated to this years raffle, but thanks to you if you did! The booty shorts and thong G Strings were a HIT! Thanks also to Alien Built, Zombie Performance, Psycho Resin, Ricky Bongos *btw, your bike IS gay...
I've got some video of this years OCTOPUSSYTARIAN to put together, but for now you'll just have to see old fashioned still photography of this creature. Check instagram hashtag #alienrun2018 there's lots of video clips if you wanna see Pyro Pete's pyrotechnic destruction!
The Brobots are now extinct (are they?), the Octopussytarians have failed... what could next year bring?
(when I start taking pictures like this, you know I've been tipping canoe)
Couple quick thanks to WussArmy Kit, Manny, and The Great Magoo for once again helping with this years bonfire transportation to Rachel Nevada LITTLE ALEINN and construction! Pyro Pete for the explosions!!!
