Hip local news…Fishbone @ Attucks Theater 2/23/13

This news comes right after watching this great documentary on Netflix called ‘Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone‘.  I recommend it.

Legendary band Fishbone will be preforming at the Attucks Theater in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013.

This is part of the Attucks Theater’s Discovery Music Series.

Last time I saw Fishbone perform was at the Boathouse in Norfolk, Virginia 1997. They were part of the ‘Nuttstalk 19 Nutty 7’ tour. It was Fishbone, with opening act John Frusciante (of Red Hot Chili Peppers when he first quit the band and went solo…amazing) and Trulio Disgracias. Here’s a description:

“According to Addicted To Noise, Fishbone’s Norwood Fisher will be taking his roving, roaming P-Funk-inspired funk circus on the road from mid-April through early June with a lineup of bands that includes everyone from ska upkeepers the Skeletones to the reformed Thelonious Monster.  Nuttstalk ’97, which will feature DJ sets in between bands, finds Fisher sharing the stage with Joi, Weapon of Choice,  Super 8, former Red Hot Chili Pepper John Frusciante,  the Street Walkin’ Cheetas and the supergroup Trulio Disgracias.  This time around Trulio will include three members of Fishbone,  three ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers and past and current members  of Weapon of Choice, Spearhead, the Untouchables, Super 8,  Circle Jerks and P-Funk.”

I remember Angelo using some giant full-page size rubber stamps and stamping and signing books of his ‘poetry’ at the merchandise table. I wish I would have bought one of those! I wasn’t such a ‘book-geek’ back then as I am now.

Hip book review…Stuff Hipsters Hate

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The authors came up with the idea of defining a hipster not by what he/she is, but instead by what he/she is not! Genius.

Here’s a couple of examples of things hipsters hate:

  • Being on time
  • Sobriety
  • Calling people by their real names
  • Washing their hair

The list goes on and on…
