Quoth Pancake Master Googleplexia: "Pancake Productions Headquarters: I've lived, and been hosting shows, in this place for ten years. X marks the spot! Let's celebrate that with pancakes, croquet, food, live music, and most of all partying. Attendance is FREE. Pancakes may cost a buck or two apiece. Let's say proceeds will go to the continued upkeep of PPHQ as a place to have a free fun time on occasion.There might eventually be a KickStarter associated with getting me a new pancake griddle that'll be an opportunity for free pancakes at this event? I don't know man, I'm playin' it by ear. The newest PANCAKE SAMPLER is slated for release at this festival and to feature nothing but songs about pancakes; some of them by the very acts that you'll see play live on one of TWO stages. Maybe there will be beer sponsorships (sponsorships of any kind are, of course, welcome--talk to me). Maybe there will be a scavenger hunt. Definitely there will be DIQBONGing. Any and all will be welcome to join."
Evil Eye Gypsy will be joined by Manray, and St; Louis favorite Tok on Saturday, November 15th. $5 at the door, with the fun starting at 9:00 p.m.
"Now, it's not very often that I'd let a band's self-penned description influence my review of their music. Lord knows, bands can sometimes be prone to hyperbole when it comes to themselves. And it's even rarer that I'd actually let that band's words make it's way into the review itself, but damn if the boys from Tok haven't captured the imagination and hammered the nail right on the head with the handwritten note they scrawled to me. "(Our music) is like if the Replacements, Nirvana, the Pixies and the MC5 got in a fistfight. Then someone scooped up all their blood and teeth and rubbed them all over a golden skeleton, and the golden skeleton had a flying V carved out of woolly mammoth tusks. So he's wailing on that thing and some grizzly bear is eating people and playing drums, and every time the bear hits a drum someone's head explodes in a beautiful shower of confetti." Um . . . yeah, that just about does it.
