    And to answer why we aren't releasing any band info yet: contracts o_O
    Verbal agreements won't fly with me for any show larger than a practice in my basement :D

    I've seen both of those bands. Not my thing. I prefer a healthier approach to metal. :lol:

    Hell, just do both. I'd like a pulled-pork chalupa, please! :heh:

    Hope ya feel better soon!

    I'm building one of those air-powered T-shirt Guns they use at sports events, to fire burritos into the crowd. John's gonna man the Hot Sauce Super Soaker, and Tammy's got the Grill Catapult.
