Take 2...
Dammnit.. I lost everything I just wrote. Uggh...
Last night A's won 4-2. I know you don't care, but I do and I'm the best, so that's all that matters.

Me and Monica went to a punk show in Oakland after the game. It was at a warehouse and the performance space was in a room that fit about 50 people.

Lots of punks and loads of bicycles, which made me happy. . The show reminded me of the shows I used to go to in the early 90's at PUNKS WITH PRESSES..

I saw Bikini Kill there and was shaking in my boots as Kathleen Hannah was inches from me. She was probably weirded out by the fact that I was drooling, but ya know that's the way it goes.

Next time Le Tigre comes to town I'm gonna ask her for a big hug and won't let go ever. Toys that Kill were rockin.

No stage, just punks right in their faces singing along and dancing. Super fun! I took off after they played missing the Fleshies whom I want to see.

Also missed Good For Cows as their sets overlapped. The one hour drive back home was hard as I was nodding off. I'm recording music today and then off to SF to table for the PUNKVOTER show. FUN FUN

Peace always, Mike Park

PS-I'll be posting the following for the next few days, so if you've read this before go to sleep.

THE 2nd ANNUAL ASIAN MAN RECORDS day w/the OAKLAND A'S!! NOTE:DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED!!!

This year, the day will be July 19th vs. the Toronto Blue Jays. We will begin the BBQ at 5:00 PM at the far north end of the Oakland Coliseum parking lot facing the freeway 880. There will be a big red van with a 10 x 10 white tent that says plea for peace on it.

I'm gonna rent a generator and have punk bands play until we get told to shut down.(hopefully that won't happen) There will tons of Asian Man swag being given away, so bring a bag with you. If you plan on coming, I need you to email me at mikeasianman@aol.com

This way I will know how many tickets to buy(It should cost around $5 as I think I can get a group discount) and to know how much food to buy for the BBQ. The big problem last year was that so many people didn't RSVP that I was struggling with lack of food.

ARGHHH!!! So, there's the info.. I'll send more info. as it comes in. And I'll list the bands playing as that info. comes in.
