she's been dancin'

I have been contracted (with promises of free beer) to videograph the upcoming performance of the world's greatest drunkest Guns N' Roses tribute band Mr. Brownstone. They're playing at NorthSix in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, this coming Friday night (12/9/05) at midnight and it's one of their last shows.

Friends, I know what you probably think of tribute bands but let me tell you... these guys are Fun As Hell. In fact they are most likely A Lot More Fun Than The Real Guns N' Roses Is These Days but having not seen those jerks lately who knows?

I have drafted my friend Andy to act as a second camera operator for the evening and we're hoping that the guy running the soundboard will record the show for us so's our edited concert video can have good sound.

My double-secret probation reason for wanting to do this, other than Slash being virtuosically aped by my friend Gerard Egan, is hope that Gerard's incredibly excellent real band, Boss Tweed will want me to someday shoot a concert film for them. So I'm considering this an audition of sorts.
