[ mood | determined ]

so i know that no one has updated this shizzle for awhile, but i'm hoping some people come around every now and then to look. you see, i need a band or i'm going to explode (with frustration). i need a lead guitar, bass, drums...it would be ideal if at least one had the ability to sing harmonies. all kinds of musical background are encouraged, i like to mix things up a bit. i'm at rutgers..so all new brunswick area people are welcome. but i also spend a great deal of time at home in hamilton..trenton/princeton..well, if you're in the hamilton area, you'd know it. if you're interested, leave a comment or email me at amatlack@eden.rutgers.edu

Hi, I'm new...I'm from Bergen County and I play guitar and write songs. I hope to start a band because I'm really serious about music, it's what I actually want to do professionally. But so far I don't have anyone to play with and I need a new guitar because mine sucks.
Good night.

Sorry guys [04 Nov 2002|02:12pm]

Hey guys sorry I've been a sucky member around here. I'm really having a hard time with this whole I'm going to college next year thing. I can't grasp that.

But anywho....

I went to see NFG, Finch, Something Corporate & Further Seems Forever yesterday. Let me just tell you it was AMAZING! I had a blast. I took a few hits to the head but that's ok. But the part that sucked was that I got a speeding ticket on the way home. I'm in big trouble.

But that's about it really.

You guys all suck! [04 Nov 2002|09:56am]

[ mood | pissed off ]

Okay, accept for Allie and Amy, you're all a huge fuckin' dissapointment! Blargh! Why do I bother? Y'know, I try to make something for you guys to have and enjoy, and use...and you all just suck! Stop sucking! Can you turn it off? Nobody posts and nobody comments and nobody spreads the fuckin' word! I'm gonna start administering donkey-slaps if this bull-shit keeps up!

C Ya,

We're gonna rock this...like igneous baby. [29 Oct 2002|12:26pm]

[ mood | irritated ]

I noticed no one has said anything on here for awhile so I decided to post something! I am in science class right now and i'm the only one in here. creepy. the only person here is this sub with a crazy mullet. and i have to listen to the news becuase my CD player ran out of batteries, and i was listening to Rilo Kiley's new CD too. damn.
anyway. so, to get things pumpin in here, what's everyone's all time favorite song? I'm talking like, this song has some killer lyrics and the music is amazing and everytime you hear it you go in your own little world.
I'll post mine later, class is almost over and i gotta go!

rock it

ANOTHER SHOW FOR MEEEEEEEEE!!! [24 Oct 2002|08:08am]

[ mood | creative ]

Hey all, I know that I've got some stiff competition, what with RBF being at the Birch Hill tomorrow night, but I do have a show (hell, I'd almost rather be at the RBF show). My show is at the Internet Cafe, in Red Bank, NJ (of course). It's at 1 W. Front St, on the corner of W. Front and Broad. The door is only two bucks ($2)!!! I'm planning on plowing through somewheres near 25 songs (11 from my album, 9 other originals, and 5 covers), so you don't to miss this (especially if you were at the last show, and loved a particular song...'cause I'm playing all of those and more tomorrow night!). So, I hope that I may see some of you there, supporting and representing.

C Ya,

..if i cant dance, its not my revolution.. [21 Oct 2002|11:03pm]

[ mood | complacent ]

hey, i'm amy. singer/songwriter/musician. i'm 18 and go to rutgers so i spend my weeks up in new brunswick, but usually come home to hamilton (trenton/princeton area)on the weekends. i do too much for my own good: guitar, bass, piano, viola, trumpet, vox...i'm sure i could pick something else up too..i'm a music nerd. my musical tastes run all over the place from punk, emo, indie and the like to classical and jazz..and i must admit i'm a sucker for harmonies and catchy melodies. i had a few bands in high school, nothing spectacular. i've just been doing a lot of solo acoustic stuff lately because there's no one to play with. i've also been in a classical quartet since i was 11, and i must say, we're quite good. so if anyone wants to add strings to a recording or anything, we're available. i guess that's all there is to say right now. bye bye.

looking for experience [20 Oct 2002|08:40pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

hey all. nichole (almost) 20 from central nj, right by RU (i dont go there though). i cant play any instruments, and i cant sing even though i like to think i can. one day, hopefully i wanna go all the band managing and all that stuff. the problem is, i need experience. looking for any type of band (my faves are punk,emo, rock, etc) who has a manager/or needs one. something like that. i just want to learn the ropes I guess. I'm totally dedicated to whatever i do so i wouldnt slack off. if you want to talk to me some more, IM me at Dazed1208. thaaaanks.

.hey kids rock n roll. [20 Oct 2002|06:13pm]

[ mood | restless ]

Heya. My name is Marissa, from Elizabeth NJ. 16 years old, guitar. I'm not looking to start a really serious band, (since I'm still in school) but I'm looking to start a band that can write some songs and maybe play some gigs and just discover what it's like to be in a band. I listen to mostly alternative:

Smashing Pumpkins
Pearl Jam
The Velvet Teen
Queens of the Stone Age
Kill Hannah

Just to name a few...
Anyway, if you want some samples of my playing or just to yak you can IM me "otots is my hero" Looking primarilly for other guitarists or drummers to play with. (Got myself a nifty bassist)

Heh, don't ask. Later!

[ mood | disappointed ]

Okay, so, I don't think that I'll ever go play or see a show at the Broadway Central Cafe again. The crowd was so horrible. Literally, other than who I brought, there were thirty people there (not a bad number), and not one of them paid me any attention except for the ones that I know personally. I mean, the whole point of playing shows with other artists is to find other good ones, and get their fans to watch you (and in turn, have your fans watch them) so that the whole thing can grow. But no, they all just sat in the back and talked. It was so incomprehensibly rude. It reminded me of two things: 1) why I love playing coffee houses and hate playing bars and 2) why I really miss the music scene in LA. In LA, even if they didn't like you, even if they'd smile to your face and talk shit behind your back, they'd shut up and listen when you played. They'd at least give you a shot to find out if they'd like you. These people will never know. So, sod 'em. My fans were so pissed by the whole ordeal that they all decided to leave when I was done (and take me with them). They just refused to sit through and listen to a bunch of people who wouldn't extend the courtesy to me. And I agree...though I really HATE to play and leave and I NEVER do it. So, I did feel a little bad leaving, especially since I really wanted to see the second to last band (Hunchback), but I'll see them (like, the people in the band) on Halloween (their rhythm section is the same as Planet Janet and I'll be seeing them play at Maxwell's in Hoboken on Halloween), and they completely understood. So, I urge you to go to Maxwell's in Hoboken on Halloween ('cause Planet Janet and Hero Patern are playing along with several more) and avoid attending or performing at the Broadway Central Cafe (I hate talking shit...but it was probably my worst recieved performance ever...and I played really well too, which is the pisser of the whole thing).

First Post (& I'm following eric's format =D) [18 Oct 2002|06:05pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Hey, I'm Jenn. I can't play any instruments (yet) but I'm working on that. But I can sing really good. I really don't fall into any category. I'm a mix of everything (except preppy). Eventhough I must confess I am a cheerleader (don't hate me). I'm not like your usual cheerleader. My friend Jack calls me his hardcore cheerleader. (sorry digression) I wish I was in a band. All my friends are in bands, well all my guy friends that is. I really love music. I can't live without it. And I guess as of right now my favorite band would have to be my 2 friends bands.... here's their links if you want to check them out. The Venice! and my other friends band CAMREN!

I guess that's all. I'm out til for now.

A Show!! A Show!!!! [18 Oct 2002|12:03am]

[ mood | excited ]

Okay, so now I'm going to shamelessly plug myself:

I've got a show this Saturday (TOMORROW!) in South Amboy. It's at the Broadway Central Cafe at 114 S. Broadway. If you have any idea where South Amboy is, it'd be cool of you to come. It's a five dollar show, but they're giving me three of it, so if you find me once you're in, I'll give you back three of your three, so it'll only be a $2 SHOW!! The show starts at 9PM, and I'm opening. Hunchback and The Unindentified are playing as well (both awesome bands). So, be sure to be there! You don't want to miss it!

Okay, I'm done shamelessly self-promoting for a week or so. Please go about your business.

C Ya,

umm i think i messed up that first one there [17 Oct 2002|08:58pm]

[ mood | confused ]

yea i think i did the first entry completely different than how eric wanted it. sorry, guy. haha.

alright, let's try this again.

hey, i'm romina. i'm from bergen county, new jersey. i've recently become a super-show kid. i feel very specific about music, because music is the glue that holds people together, it's the international language of the world. so it would be an understatement to say that i like music. because i don't. i LOVE music. i breathe it. its my addiction.

being a jersey show kid isn't always fun. but about 97% of the time, it is. the venues are cool. like for instance, krome...is awesome because it's kind of clean but kind of not because it has to live up to its jersey name. it's an awesome place to play/see your first show ever. birch hill is the skankiest motherf-in place ever. but i thrive on it. its the kind of place where you meet/meat people and you just throw up and suddenly everything's okay. the people are cool...sometimes. others are just meatheds you have to avoid.

but that's what i think. so it may not be true to everyone else.

some band i like include my all time favorites:
*foo fighters

to emo bands, such as Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Saves the Day, (very little) Dashboard Confessional, Weezer, The Starting Line, and anything else i can find in my cd case.

to ska bands (I THRIVE ON SKA, yo.), such as reel big fish, less than jake, the hippos (even if they're not around anymore), the pietasters, the specials, CATCH 22!!, and mighty mighty bosstones.

to local jersey bands, such as the superspecs and big d and the kids table.

so i like alot of different stuff.

and um...lets see. i play guitar. have been for about 2 years. there's nothing i'd rather be doing than playing guitar. maybe writing. because i'm a writer. or at least that's what people tell me.

i'm 17. and my life's just started. but i already feel like an old lady with a zillion cats and a need to drive real fast. cause that's what i can't wait to be.

thats it. Ta-da.

hello children [17 Oct 2002|06:27pm]
[ mood | bored ]

yes, hello. i'm Lisa and uhm...i just..joined. 'cause i'm cool like that =)

i would be described "emo" even though i'm also described as "void of emotion" but, hey, what are labels for, eh? i live in Monmouth County- Marlboro to be exact. at the end of the school year, i'm moving to PA, but that's in a few months, so i'll join anyway.

let's see...i like bands such as Thursday, Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, Finch, LostProphets, Linkin Park, Coal Chamber, Dieradiodie, Chevelle, Taproot, Coheed and Cambria, 30 Seconds to Mars, TRUSTcompany, Cursive, Nada Surf, Boys Night Out, The Faint, uhm...and stuff like that. my music interest is really wide variety. i also like Techno.

i play guitar and i'm not in a band. i'm also 14, which is, well, young...i guess. but age does not matter, does it? heh..okay. so...hi. and all that good stuff.

[ mood | tired ]

Hello everyone! I am Allie! Let's see how this goes...I'm that cat that would be described by others as an "emo girl" although I'm the farthest thing from it really. I play guitar and sing in a band that's not really a band, just something made out of boredom one day. I'm from Hunterdon County and...I'm in ceramics class right now!!! Doing the opposite of ceramics...but its ok!
Well, anyway...some bands I listen to are Piebald, Midtown, Rilo Kiley, Brandston, Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Phantom Planet, Rooney, Bob Dylan, Billie Holiday, Saves The Day, Butch Walker, and others that I cant think of right now because it's too early. I dont know what else to say about myself...if you want to know anything else just ask me.
