This Week’s BOTW: 13th Grade

posted by on March 12 at 12:00 PM

Say hello to 13th Grade, the local band that plays weird rock songs about school, sex, and drugs. They’re this week’s Band of the Week.

I asked them a few questions, so we could all get to know them a little bit better:

Q: Do you guys consider yourselves to be the teachers or the students in the school of life?

A: Teachers all the way! We get paid more than students, and our positions of authority allow us to extort sexual and other favors from subordinates.

Q: I got kicked out of yearbook class when I was a junior in high school. Have you guys ever been kicked out of class?

A: Yes. All of us. It’s a basic requirement for acceptance into the Academy. We even teach a class called “How To Get Kicked Out Of Class”.

Q: On your bands page, you describe yourself as “Led Zeppelin fingering the Mickey Mouse Club in the back row of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. ” Is that old school (Annette) or new school (Britney) MMC?

A: Since we’re all over 50, none of us has even watched Spearable Britney MMC. Except Coach. We’re all about Fun with the ‘cello! (:B

Q: Does your class have mascot?

A: “Leering Rodger,” the tongue-wagging skull and bones mascot of our co-ed wrestling team (GO ASS PIRATES!!!), is currently in hiding from the authorities.

See 13th Grade Thursday, March 13th, at the Galway Arms. They’re also playing the Blue Moon on the 28th and the Skylark Cafe in West Seattle on April 12th.
