Friends with benefits

Punk show benefit for the Liberation Institute - a grassroots mental health clinic in SF. They're true sliding scale (so, if you lost your marbles, but you found a dollar, you can receive counseling) and operate solely on private funds (no gov't/insurance assistance). Being broke doesn't mean you're powerless to make the world less shitty. Plus, rarer than a 3-dong gigolo - a show with all good bands! Coming soon: the apocalypse!
NN, Nobunny (last show before a 3 month tour), Younger Lovers, Dirty Marquee, and Endemics (first show!)

While you were peeping...

A couple of recent drawings to fill the dead air between blogs:

The Bitter Critic - I love him. Chug-a-luggin' Pepto Bismol and snubbing out cigs onto half-eaten baloney sandwiches. He wasn't always this way and he's trying to get better. Just check out all of the self-help books lining his shelf if you don't believe me: "I'm Ok, You're a Pile of Shit!", "Chicken Soup for the Soulless", and "Men are from Mars - Women are Bitches!"

A flyer I made for Nobunny. If it wasn't so small here, you would see: Bunny boobs, GG Allin bunny, Circle Jerks bunny, Warhol and Candy Darling bunnies, bunnies shotgunning beers, bunny passing out on the can, lady bodybuilder bunny, and more. But you can see the date: April 4th! That's in, like, 2 weeks! Start checking the sofa cushions now so you'll have enough change to see the show.

Ancient ways isn't just a bookstore in Oakland, it's also my life. So old now. That's why I had to start blogging, to keep up with the kids ... of ten years ago.

This is a custom cover for the notorious Go-Go's video. You know the one, right? Where they're young and wasted and commit roadie abuse? Rotten Ron dubbed this copy for our pal's 90th birthday. I hope it doesn't give him angina!
