Top 10 Things To Do Instead Of Seeing CYHSY Tonight/ 1Week Anniversary of Vicious Suck Fest

When Audrey and Jasper got together a little over 2 years ago, they shared a common vision and goal; exposing budding local talent to the world. To commemorate the 2nd Anniversary of their joint venture “Vicious” (the monthly party they had created to realize their vision) they decided to host the first annual Suck Fest, a show where the bands were so crappy and over-rated that they would leave everyone feeling sick to their stomachs about the state of music.

To commemorate the 1 Week Anniversary of Suck Fest, I have come up with a list of “The Top 10 Things To Do Instead Of Seeing (Suck Fest Super Stars) CYHSY”.

My friends, read on…

10. Make that dreadful phone call home to “Say Hi To Your Mom”

9. Start an Erika Forster fan site.

8. Go see Last Days.

7. Apply for that job at American Apparel.

6. Go see The Plus Ones with NYC’s gayest up and comers Surefire at Southpaw (the very location where Suck Fest took place!) And no, The Plus Ones are not Johnny Kaps’ band, and yes, I was disappointed too. | |

5. Dig out your Tae-Bo videos.

4. Make dried cranberry/ peanut butter on rice cake sandwiches for all the neighbors.

3. Track down that “missed connection” from that craaaazzyyy late night out on the LES.

2. Read the new Harry Potter book for like the gazillionth time.

1. Go to the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah “Crap In” outside the Mercury Lounge. Full description of the event in this craigslist post:

Hmmm, that "crap in" just takes things to a whole other level.

Or, you could stay in and
learn how to post hyperlinks without riddling your entries with web addresses.

Just a thought.

OMG, I was just editting the monthly gossip column at the celeb lifestyle gloss I work at, and came across this item: "...David Bowie stepped out to witness new band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at the Knitting Factory last month..." I started laughing hysterically. Do you guys believe Mr. Jones hates CYHSY as much as we do?

I live in LA otherwise I would be present at the Crap-In. I think this is a fine, fine idea and we should strive to organize crap-ins as crappy NYC bands enveloped in hype tour the country.

wow.. you must harbor some deep-seeded anger toward the circle of bloggers that have come to dominate the local scene. Which is refreshing, though the constant negativity is frightening. Still. Cheers to you. Manhattan Carnivore is a fitting name, for those are some sharp teeth you've got.

I can't help but wonder who you were in the past.

Hi, Kasey! So glad you're back. Guess nothing can keep you away from opening that mouth of yours. It's all, "yap, yap, yap, yap" all the time for you, sugar. We all thought Gawker was going to put you in hiding but, nope, you're at it again. Awesome! Hey, so this was a good start at going after some bloggers -- just like old times. But I noticed you're now focused on bands more. So, like, are you ever going to get around to making Jew jokes? And, like, do you have a new roommate to pin this one on?

Anyone who has paid to see CYHSY this summer is a fucking moron, considering they're playing a free show in two weeks.
Show has been announced for months.
