"I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive..."

All of us here at Rock*Land are greatly saddened by the recent passing of our literary, philosophical and pharmaceutical hero; Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

As the inventor of Gonzo Journalism, teller and liver of amazing tales and scathing observer of the on-going perversion/demolition of the American Dream, he set the bar high for all of us in the bad craziness game.

So, we humbly offer up this week's issue of our rock party as some small testament to the man who made this world a better place by describing just how savagely twisted it is.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro:
Rock*Land
10pm, Thursday
Route 85A
downstairs, 85 Ave. A btw 5th & 6th

With the usual degenerates:
Ricky, Shelby, Dave, Rev. Timmy

We're hoping to lay in a mess of grapefruit, shrimp cocktail and club sandwiches , but the room service people have been reluctant to serve us ever since we terrorized one of the maids (wholly accidentally and understandably).
There's also some issue about an expired Diner's Club Card and The Magazine cutting off our expense account.
Selah.

Miss Jilly
has assured us, though, that there will be plenty of Tequila, Wild Turkey, Chivas and the usual spirited beverages behind the bar.

As for amyls, ether, adrenochrome and mace, you're on your own.

Till Thursday you may wish to entertain yourself with the following:

So lace up your "Chuck Taylors", pull out your cigarette holder, put on your shooting glasses and come on by.
The worst that'll happen is we stomp you good and pull all your teeth out.
Oh, and don't worry about the bats...

You'll see them soon enough.

"...but if you try sometimes, you just might find..."


AThursDaysNightLand

Disappointed that your Valentine's Day ended up with you handcuffed to a gurney in St. Vincent's ER and your date running off with a police psychologist?

Filled with remorse over losing a $700 wager on the winner of "Best Spoken-word Album for Children"? ("City of New Orleans" my ass!)


Apprehensive that William Henry Harrison will get short shrift on yet another Presidents' Day?


Mildly annoyed that we're doing a rerun on last week's flyer even if Dave did work really hard on it?


Well, we can't help you.

But if you want to get drunk and listen to Rock records then come on down to:

Rock*Land
