CMJ: MyOpenBar Party at Don Pedro's with Women, Vivian Girls, King Khan, and Blood on the Bar
Blood on the Stool: Weird Al's gross-joke riff on Blood on the Wall
Women, Vivian Girls, Muslims, LiveFastDie Don Pedro's Thursday, October 23 photos by Rebecca Smeyne
MyOpenBar, the free-booze guide co-run by our very own camera-killing correspondent Rebecca Smeyne, had their CMJ fete on Thursday night, way the hell out in Bushwick. The Muslims, Vivian Girls, and Women starred; Hotlanta's Black Lips and their gut-showing bro King Khan showed up, stayed late, and King Khan even guested on a few songs with this cantankerous Swing State punk band LiveFastDie. Apparently these lasses take that last part very seriously: the guitarist clowned a Vice affiliate in the head, who then gushed blood furiously. But it's all in good punk-rock fun because Vice guy's still alive and bragging about it on the interwebs. The cops also came and left.
Also, far less interesting, but noteworthy nonetheless: there was almost a mosh pit for Vivian Girls!
P.S. Photos from that night of the Black Lips touching tongues over here.
