IL CORRAL “SCREWS” FEST HUGE SUCCESS; DON’T MISS PART II TONITE!!!


Il Corral’s Turn The Screws Fest is freaking incredible.

The night got started with awesome videos. I really like the ones by Todd Novasad, Christopher Cichocki and Tarantism.

Then, the live music began. First up: Grux from Rubber-O-Cement bashing around with an 11-foot pole thingy. He went outside, attacked cars, photographers, and, when he came back in, the members of Bastard Noise. That resulted in a shouting match with the Bastards and cries of “Faggot!” etc.

Although this violent outburst unsettled a lot of people, really, if something crazy hadn’t happened right away, Turn The Screws Fest would have been a boring affair.

No danger of being bored at Il Corral!

Kilt was awesome but I ran video for them so I couldn’t take any photos.

Bastard Noise orchestrated brooding, taut, haunting noise and soundscapes for about 20 minutes.

I got kinda wasted at this point and I forget the names of all the bands. I had an ozone treatment from Dr. Willy’s Nerve Clinic. Christie tried it, too. I feel surprisingly great today, despite my partying and having a cold. Ozone works!

Moment Trigger was all hair and awesomeness. I think they may be my favorite of the whole night.

AMK slayed, as usual, with four record players and umpteen dozen flexi-discs. They really jam, and they look like they are having fun, too, so they’re highly entertaining to watch.

The last dude I got to see before I got a ride home was The Widow. If I mis-identified photos, please send me a msg: sean@seancarnage.com

Don’t miss 40 BANDS 80 MINUTES! tomorrow at 6pm.

Tonite’s Turn the Screws schedule is white-hot and you KNOW there’s NO WAY I’m gonna miss vegan pancakes and Beach Ballz tomorrow at brunch.

Enjoy the photos. I’m gonna see XBXRX early this evening with Richmond, but I will meet you at the Corral later on. Cheers!

It was really hard to photo Grux. The only way I can describe his costume is imagine the trash in the Star Wars trash compactor scene getting up and walking around.
