Most of it is gibberish, but it attempts explain that two people who know nothing about music will be playing records tonight at 5 pm inside the Crocodile tonight.
THE OFFICE - An Industry Happy Hour Series featuring: TOTAL POSEURS
w/ Guest DJ's: Dave Hernandez & Derek Erdman
Playing mainly punk, hardcore, youth crew & KBD records from the 1970s and 1980s.
Dave Hernandez went through high school in his adorably sketchy hometown of Albuquerque befriending Slayer heshers and MDC punks to keep from getting beat up by too many jocks due to his small frame and snarky demeanor. He also listened to The Smiths in order to trick cute new wavers into make-out sessions. His first punk band, Static, started in his mid-teens in the mid-80s. He kept playing in punk bands and got to travel for free and play shows with bands like Dickies and Subhumans. He eventually ended up in a successful indie rock band that, along with his age, married-with-a-kid-and-a-dog status, and home ownership has effectively removed him from all things currently punk in the public eye. For this, he is eternally grateful.
A few fave punk bands in no order: Bad Brains, Fear, Septic Death, Sham 69, The Panics, Void, Flipper, The Damned, Dead Kennedys, Rudimentary Peni, Youth Brigade, Minor Threat, Adolescents, Cryptic Slaughter, The Accused, GG Allin, Rezillos, Black Flag, Corrosion of Conformity, Death, The Saints, Born Against, Misfits, Zero Boys, The Meatmen, Angry Samoans, Life Sentence, Crucifucks, Germs, Negative Approach, and the fuckin' Spits!
Dave likes going on social networking websites and looking at current profiles of the sad middle aged men that, in their youth, used to roam in brainless mobs of thugs and make going to shows and parties a living hell by being horribly violent bullies. He enjoys thinking about them worrying about their mortality while struggling with divorce and loneliness. He would also like you to know that he once got drunk with Kiefer Sutherland.
Derek Erdman: This is nothing worth knowing about Derek Erdman.
Derek Erdman came of age near Cleveland, Ohio in the late 1980s, discovering punk music through the common progression of BMX & heavy metal to skateboarding & hardcore. As cultures tend to get muddled when they reach smaller towns, he went through a phase of wearing eye-liner and trench coats in the 7th grade, for which he was often deservedly pummeled. He currently he makes his living being Derek Erdman, with well over 15 websites ranging in services from a free psychic hotline to sending hamburgers through the mail.
Punker influences include: Black Flag, Dicks, Electric Eels, COC, Husker Du, GISM, Pagans, Meat Puppets, Effigies, Articles Of Faith, Born Against, Agnostic Front, Misfits, Exploited, the Fix, Zero Boys, Wipers, Minutemen, Die Kreuzen, Angry Samoans, Life Sentence, 7 Seconds, Urban Waste, the Huns, Big Boys, Crucifucks, Feederz, Germs, Jerry's Kids, JFA, DRI, GBH, 0DFX, Negative Approach, the Stains, Middle Class, Mentors, Proletariat, Really Red, Saccharine Trust, Suicide Commandos, Toxic Reasons & X_X.
Dislikes: Ian Mackaye telling people what to do, public assistance, grumpy skins, skateboards without riser pads.

Join us every Monday for a little booze n' schmooze during our new industry happy hour series! We'll play host to a different office of industry peers each week. They will guest DJ, there will be plenty of cheap booze, and 2 for 1 pizzas all night long. And, since many of our industry peers are borderline maniacs, there will be tons of fun to be had.
So, come on down and join us at The Office. Things will get rolling at 5pm, and wrap up around 10pm, so you can get to your own office the next day without being brutally hungover.
