the Jesus Lizard at Irving Plaza
Just got back from seeing TJL in New York. I won the concert. My pal Jason and I got as close as we could, then, during the first song, David Yow came galloping out and went directly into a stage dive, everybody turned towards him and I took that opportunity to get right up against the barrier. Front and center bitches. Haven't been able to wear a bra for 3 days because my ribs are so bruised from being slammed up against the barrier.
I was wearing my Jazzus Lizard T shirt (an austin based band that does instrumental jazz covers of Jesus Lizard tunes that I do artwork for) which is based on the Mouse and Bomb T and DY kept looking at me trying to figure out what the fuck was up with my shirt.
He also, thumbwrestled with me during Then Comes Dudley (you can see it on youtube, I'm just out of frame) Kissed me on the cheek at some point. Smeared his blood on my face, and had me scream into the microphone, for which I was thanked.
Going to see them in Milwaukee on Monday.
