one of my favorites! so excited for the new record!
Abby, I'll TL;DR this for you - As some get older and different facets of life burgeon, they tend to trivialize or de-gravitate the things that pushed and defined us when we were younger. They think that what we experienced has perished along with our youth. There are yet others of us who don't have the same experience, and stay in a somewhat lonely place that most others leave. When we hear the former, we feel as though we should have maybe stayed on that train. Then you see some kids at a show down on 4th and you remember why you didn't.
I guess you get it or you don't. Enjoy the voice later.
Abby: How so?
This is a non-article. C'mon Tucson Weekly, this is embarrassing.
They ended with Sue.
Thanks for the kind words. That was an awesome gig.

The weird thing isn't that you gave BMDB a bad review, it's that you gave the other bands good reviews. The other bands that played that night were just awful. It was really strange that people were so into them. The author of this article wasn't honest, he should have said that BMDB were unoriginal and the local bands all sounded like a group of kindergarteners were getting their stomachs pulled out of their mouths.
BRILLIANT article!! THIS is why you guys are my favorite band in the world!
I just moved from Denver, where no one knows of this band, so I can vouch for their proclaimed modesty. Thanks for all the great work you do, Weekly staff.
As music editor of this here publication, it’s probably my duty to step forward and moderate or something.
Dudes from Blind Man Deaf Boy: Have you never been reviewed before? Or have all the writers in Denver just kissed your asses? It is not uncommon for a reviewer, someone who is extremely well versed in music, to take exception to a band’s music. It’s what we call music criticism, and it is what you will regularly be subjected to, should you choose to play music.
No one had it out for you in Tucson. You were reviewed fairly by a knowledgeable guy, but ultimately it’s just one guy’s opinion.
So, Blind Man Deaf Boy, why not come back to Tucson, play a show, and let the people decide. We’re a fair bunch. This is not a threat. It’s a guarantee that if you come back, we’ll make sure some people are there to see you and make up our own minds. Let’s make friends, assholes.
Ok. So, is that a "No!" to having a much better show and a chance to change your minds about Tucson and a yes to the duel? Also, reading all your reactions and watching your skill set on YouTube kindly allows me to Fuck On!.
Here is the dealiddy-do; are you not aware that the DIY scene/modern-punk you have an affinity for is run on the lifeblood of 20-somethings, most in skinny jeans? Also, did you not have a good reaction from the crowd AND get a place to crash? I may be wrong on the last two points (hearsay), but, after seeing you and Rican's reaction to anything, I really wouldn't be surprised if no one ever peed on you if you were on fire, let alone let you sleep on their floor.
Any who, your collective replies are as sloppy as the playing on your vids and your reaction to this whole thing is just so what I rally against in my life an in my pursuit of music. Bottom line, as bad a musicians you are, you are better than being cocks to a dude that is just doing his job by reviewing you. Take care and I am easy to find if you wanna next level this convo.
Hey playing to a bunch of pretentious 20 something's in skinny pants with their arms crossed was a lot of fun for us too guys!
Glad everyone had fun, thanks for giving us a chance! Josh thanks for coming and listening, and writing! Cory you did not come so kindly fuck off.
Josh I hope you see us again some day, maybe in a more welcoming environment, and we have the chance to change your mind. If your band ever makes it to Denver I look forward to hearing it.
I'm just glad Mario is distracted by playing fiddle in Blind Man Deaf Boy and not trying to mess up my life anymore.
Josh tends to be kinder in his reviews than I would be (for local and touring bands alike). Furthermore, he is a walking encyclopedia of music. I was not at this show, but... if he gives your band a bad review - you suck period
PS: just to be clear, I saw your YouTube videos of your "band" and wasn't at your show and kinda ran in to this comment thread by chance.
