Don’t Take the S.L.U.T.

posted by on May 14 at 15:00 PM

Take the SLATS.

slut.jpgTonight at the Funhouse, Pain Cocktail is playing. Pain Cocktail is the punk rock band of the controversial and vaunted Slats.

To get to this show, you donít need to drive or take the bus, you can glide closely behind Slats as Denny Way rolls underneath him in a technique known as drafting. Donít take the S.L.U.T., take the Slats. Slats may turn his amp levels up and down a lot . Yes, he may order a long island ice tea in the middle of the set. Yes he may make his guitar feedback, and it may be the loudest thing on stage. But thatís the way it should be. What some call a ‘shitstravaganza’, others call punk. And punk is perfect.

9:30 PM, $5. +21

Bands playing: How And Lightning, Pain Cocktail, Paul Diamond Blow, 
Sioux City Pete.

Allow me to explain.

You know how "Slats doesn't walk down Broadway, Broadway rolls underneath Slats" ?

I am merely applying the physics of drafting to Slats, as he makes his way toward the Funhouse for this show. Or maybe I should say as the Funhouse makes its way toward Slats.

Draft: transitive verb - to stay close behind (another racer) so as to take advantage of the reduced air pressure created by the leading racer, thus making it an easier ride for yourself.

Congrats to you as well, Sir Jorge.

For those familiar with the BBC version of The Chronicles of Narnia, Slats is obviously a Marshwiggle

Yesterday I saw a man passed out lying on the sidewalk on Broadway and John and Slats was taking charge organizing the bystanders to help. What an awesome guy!
