Whenever someone says, "It's a fact.", two things happen in my head. The first is the Vandals song It's a Fact begins playing in my head. Secondly I mentally begin to pull on my hip waders cause I know that the bullshit is going to get deep. It's instinctive for me to question said facts especially if it comes from a source that I don't trust.
I'm excited to announce that I've been hired as a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music. As many of you know I have a long history of bring bands to that room that dates back to 1996. As Axiom Promotion I worked both as a independent promoter and talent buyer when it was Safari Nite Club and then Hairy Mary's. It has been a joy to see Erik and Anne bring live music back to the venue at 2307 University Ave here in Des Moines and I'm greatly looking forward to working with both of them and their staff. This will not effect the Axiom Body Piercing Studio or me piercing professionally.
Instead of doing a long esay like blog this time around I decided to write an update on what is going on in my life and what is currently holding my interest.
Every since Haley's Comet's shuck the earth in 1953, the King of the Blues learned to jump, the Wolf began to Howl, Johnny blended his sound to B Good and Little Richard discovered that "Devil Music", Rock and Roll Will Never Die has become the rallying cry for each generation of unnaturally lengthen adolescents we call teenage. Rock and Roll for the next six decades dominated youth culture and the mainstream. Mutating and evolving into an endless voices, styles, marketing terms and subspecies. However, it seems in the last 35 years or so very little evolution has happened.
I'm not sure who it was that first introduced me to Home Brewing. I just remember wanting to give it a try in the early 90s but it always seemed that there was some other shinny object in the way. More than likely it was a beer or two. However, with my increased interest in Craft Beer as I talked about in my last blog post, I decided it was high time that I took the leap into brewing my own beer.
