It sounds like a great show. At least you didn't focus on how "pudgy" he is, as other so-called critics did.
Thanks for the write up, much love from EVERYMEN
Great review as always Gabe!!!
Sounds like a great show! Very well written.

I find it odd that many people I like and respect (sometimes, just their talent) that they are just clueless to the whole right to bear arms thing.
Thinking it's a good idea to ban gun ownership from law abiding citizens shows lack of any real thought beyond an emotional knee jerk reaction to an over publicized event.
While the aurora shooting shows how someone did something very bad taking advantage of the no concealed weapons allowed in the theatre rule - getting tons of coverage by the biased socialist mainstream media. Meanwhile, another situation that happened around the same time where two armed hoodlums stormed into a crowded internet bar thinking they were going to get away with murder found themselves fleeing and getting wounded by a quick acting law abiding SENIOR who pulled out his handgun and put to a quick end what would've likely been yet ANOTHER stupid tragedy that we'd have to be beaten over the head for months in the news. But no, that sort of story doesn't support the bulls** agenda to take away our right to own.
Our country was founded by those who had to defend themselves against tyranny... we do not have to tolerate a government that becomes a tyrant to it's people. But without the right to own guns, we wouldn't have much recourse to defend ourselves, no wouldn't we?
Maybe David thinks that a year at campfema sounds pretty good because he read the brochure that was put out for it - hiding the reality.
You can find the "upcoming shows" section of their current website here: http://merchandisetheband.wordpress.com/upcoming-shows/
I would agree that in the past, they've been more than a little vague about their upcoming shows, but lately they've been good about posting all of them.
I am proactive - but if an event isn't posted on the avenues I check weekly, I don't get info about it, and it's not on a venue or promoter's website, there's only so much I can do. One person here. But thanks for looking out.
We make peace. That is what Carlos would want, after all …
Ah...very clever Joe! Turn it around back on me. GOOD JOB!
It's just an observation. Make of it what you will ...and I see that you have...so where do we go from here? Out-clever each other? Hurl insults?... or make peace?
So tell me Steve, is your comment meant to foster division or bring us all together? I'll note that you didn't end with, "… but I forgive you, Leilani."
What I find ironic is that Creative Loafing and WMNF do still support and foster division. Carlos said in the article "we have everyone come see us" yet Lielani still tries to drive the wedge in with a second question. As if Liberals don't use "my way or the highway"? As soon as we all see, Repubs, Dems, liberals, ALL OF US!...are human and subject to human faults and frailties, the sooner we can get on with it. One side or the other is not immune. I wish Liberals were filled with as much love as they say they have. Forgiveness and compassion would come easy, even for their "enemies".
'tis not my job. Use the internet. Be proactive.
Would love to get info on any future shows - if you have a lead, can you email me info? I haven't gotten anything about them playing since 2011...
i saw them play with Church Whip and F at the Pegasus Lounge back in mid-July. saw a facebook event weeks before it and was handed a flyer for it at New Bruises record release show at the Bricks. it was a wild show! there's video on youtube that Mojo's head honcho shot as well
Lol. He is so humble even though their shows left people wondering why they wanted to see nickleback in the first place. Oh yeah, NEW BUSH!!!!!!!!! Good times.
"Sarah Smiles" and "Your Kiss Is on My Lips"??? It's not that hard to Google and get accurate song titles, you know.
The last time I wrote about Merchandise playing in town, it was in August of 2011, at a Mojo Books and Music live music showcase with David Dove & Ms. YET -- in Tampa. That was about a year ago. If they've played any shows here since then, I haven't received word - not from the band or band management, not from a venue, not from a promoter. What shows did I miss? Are they playing in the future? Please enlighten, Ms. Luelle. Real honest to goodness information is far more helpful than insults.
It should be noted that we've been having trouble on the back end with some comments not coming through. They're all up now and in order, but there are some duplicates. If you have duplicates, please delete them for the sake of consistency. Thanks!
funny to see how riled up people get over music critiques... but then music is experienced largely through our emotions and people's taste or lack of taste run the gamut.
I remember when Billy Idol was considered 'punk' or punk rock .... I still like listening to his music now and then.
People don't necessarily 'grow out' of a band or musical genre - they just find something new to listen to and tastes expand.
