Here we G(en)O(‘s) again

Fuck. usually one to abstain from profanity, i feel obligated to utter such uncivilities. i beg you to pardon my Freedom.

It’s Wednesday, and with Wednesday comes another delightful issue of every indie rocker’s favorite rag, The Portland Phoenix! What tidings do you bring us, O Phoenix, revealer of all that we should know? Much. Well, this post is not intended to slight the Phoenix, we’ll leave that to some other posts. But, we were titillated when we saw word of a Phantom Buffalo show this Friday (speaking of, PB, how come this is the first we’re hearing of it? where’s the PRO-MO?)

In 8 Days A Week (trying to find a link to that article is like trying to find an affordable beer you want at Novare Res – you know it’s there, well, you think it’s there, but you just can’t find it, and you know it’s not your own fault), Chris Gray mentions the indie rock show at Geno’s and says “call for cover.” Call for cover? In 2008? To quote myself, “fuck.” Or more specifically, “fuck that.” To the internet! You Portland Point fans know we just love to find shit on the internet! Alas, it is with a heavy and deflated heart I must report, Geno’s does not have a website. A myspace, yes, but a website? Like a proper night club? No. Is the ‘cover’ information anywhere on the internet to be found? No. So I literally would have to call to get the information. But I’m not going to. I’ll get an intern here at the Point to do it. And tell me the odds he or she will get a receptive, friendly voice on the other end of the line? Who knows, because we don’t even have a phone in the office here because it’s 2008. We have high speed internet access. Lord, why isn’t that enough?
