Poppin' caps at OG's

Hi. What's up? Nothing? Cool. Not much here either. Do you have any money left in the bank? No? Me neither. Awesome. Whenever I feel overly stressed about things in life, such as our dwindling economy, I try to simply bury my head in the sand and ignore it. It's worked for me so far, so I'm sticking with it.

If you're interested in participating in my aggressive plan of non-action, come on out to O'Gara's on Saturday, October 11th at 9:30pm. The Subsidies will play some good music, and you can drink your troubles away.

Sound good? Cool!

Get nude with the Subsidies!

Now, we'll never require nudity at a Subsidies show. A room full of sweaty, nude people would most likely end up in 39 pregnancies. However, if you choose to show a little more skin than people usually show, well, go for it.

Now, to be clear, I'm speaking to the ladies. I know you've been doing 20 pushups a day for the past 9 days, and really, it's starting to show. But, dudes, let's stay clothed. Nobody wants a sweaty, hairy armpit to rub up against them mid-show. Trust me. Grant tends to strip as the show goes on, and he tends to, well, show more skin than we'd like him to.
In summation: Ladies + naked = very yes. Dudes + naked = nausea.

The Subsidies have gone global

The Subsidies are now an international sensation. Gone are the days where we can walk though an airport without being hassled by the paparazzi. I wouldn't trade our fame for anything, but sometimes I'd like to go to the mall without having to sign 300 autographs.

Proof of our inevitable globalization was sent in by Subs-Fan Patrick P. He was sporting a stylish, always fashion-forward Subsidies t-shirt while at Castle Blarney, home of the Blarney Stone, near Cork, Ireland.

Our goal is to have a Subs-fan proudly showing their Subs-gear in all seven continents. Two down...

Antarctica is going to be a bitch.

What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit-bull?

Hockey moms honestly think they can run a country because they know how to lace up skates at 4am. Also... uh LIPSTICK!

She's got kungfu grip over simple-minded American women everywhere!

We should really just stick to black, white, and red.

During our show at Rookie's down in the Roch last weekend, this woman approaches the stage as we're playing with this big thick black leather belt in her hands and an inquisitive look in her eye.

My first thought: "Umm I'll pass on the S&M tonight, thanks."
My second thought: "Are we about to get terminated?"

Thankfully, she pulled out a harmonica (one of many in the belt). We won't be billed as a blues band anytime soon, but we could handle a little harp action:

Also, here's a little taste of what it's like to be one of our "Livin' on a Prayer" girls:

Great weekend y'all! Thanks for partying with us.
