A nice way to waste a Saturday...

The proper way to begin a Saturday is with a four-hour brunch...

the proper way to end it is with a rock show.

The Painted Lady in Hamtramck... this quaint little used to be Lili's 21 from the time it opened in the 70's until just a few years ago when Lili passed away. This long tight alley must be taken in order to get to the entrance. It's best if people are not trying to leave as well.

Helvetica tore it up as usual. They have a sound that you can, in the right venue and if you're drunk enough, actually reach out and grab. It's seriously that thick. For a dive, the Painted Lady had a decent sound sytem, too.

Helvetica frontman Eric Livingston sporting some new beardage. Chuck Norris would be proud.

A sweet piece of bathroom graffitti that Mark pointed out.

Nicole and Martin Hirchak. Martin is a really talented Detroit artist (it was his show that Perry Farrel showed up to), as well as a really cool underground comic artist (his stuff appears in Pop Art Funnies). He's also a member of the Smarties. They have a show on March 31 at the Corktown Tavern.

This is how I was seeing things on the ride home...

Hey, I grabbed the Punk Skull picture off your flickr page.
I liked the rest too...especially the last one, but I don't remember you doing any 'shrooms.
