Officially my worst work ever.
Let's get this Halloween weekend kicked the hell off. How I Became the Bomb are hosting a seasonal soiree on the East Side this evening, and they're sharing the bill with Matt Friction and the Cheap Shots, Shoot the Mountain and M Coast. If that last act rings a bell, it's because that's the Andy Gonzales-fronted, Elephant Six-affiliated, sometimes "Marshmallow Coast"-monikered indie-pop act out of Atlanta. In a combination mass text-Facebook invite media bomb, HIBTB frontman Jon "Pinky Ring" Burr had the following to say:
40 DOLLAR BAR TAB TO COSTUME CONTEST WINNER, HOW I BECAME THE JAGER BOMBS, AND OTHER SWEET HALLOWEEN DRINK SPECIALS THURSDAY NIGHT AT THE 5 SPOT.
More tasteful than the St. Patrick's Day How I Became the Car Bombs
? Perhaps. But that doesn't mean there won't be a few Zombie Michael Jacksons present. Too soon!
