So a few weeks back we challenged And And And to a game of Rigsketball on the collapsable basketball hoop they've attached to their tour van. If they win, And And And get to post anything they want on End Hits for a week. If we win, they've got to cover "Kokomo" at an actual live show.
Now that the sun's out, it seems like this competition is about ready to go down. I'm getting over my plantar faciatius and make no mistake, we're going to crush 'em like bugs.
Besides the Writers vs Rockers grudge match, And And And have been building up a bands-only, March Madness style tournament that's looking like a motherfucker! Check out all the bands signed up so far:
Starfucker, Typhoon, And And And, The No Tomorrow Boys, Jared Mees & the Grown Children, Wampire, Guantanamo Baywatch, Nurses, My Autumn's Done Come, Blast Majesty, Archers, Dirty Mittens, Ugly Flowers, Otis Heat, Raw Dog and the Close Calls, Hello Electric, Charts, Sean flinn and the Royal We, Youthbitch, The Pyrenees, Rock n Roll Soldiers, Afterbath, Lady Shapes
Starfucker are the early favorites. But if the defunct Rock n Roll Soldiers are really reuniting for this I'll lay down my bucks on them. If End Hits were in though... we could go all the way... Ezra's really good at fouling.
Summer Rigsketball Tournament: Tuesday, June 7th
