Hello Friends,

Thanks to the inimitable Jim Ruland, the Vermin On the Mount reading series has been reigning supreme for 9 years featuring irreverent storytellers such as yours truly.

Their 9th anniversary party and storytelling event galore is this Saturday night in beautiful San Diego, CA.   San Diego is known for its weather, beaches, college kids, Republicans, Navy presence, Sea World and Anchorman Ron Burgundy (“Stay Classy San Diego” or “Go Fuck Yourself San Diego”).

San Diego has also made national news recently due to the sexual harassment scandal of its Mayor, Bob Filner.

Regardless, San Diego has been home to a few excellent punk bands throughout the years, including but not limited to Battalion of Saints and the Power Chords.

I wish the Power Chords were still a band so I could go see them at the Tower Bar.  John Hammer? Craig Barclift? What happened?  Get that lead guitarist back and make it happen.

Power Chords, beautiful San Diego punk/powerpop RIP. If you don't have the "Dream Girl" single, get it, it's the best thing ever

AND… The Power Chords live! I personally still can’t get enough…

I’m looking forward to my trip!  See you there.
