Catering to Your Inner Swine for three Long Years

God Help us. . .

Well, where to begin. We had a gigantic bust at a show this fall and now Hogbutler is closed forever. We were able to put a smashing, loud and debauched show up on New Years eve that has sent Hogbutler into that dark night the way it should have. In a steaming blast of booze and rock and roll. Thanks to everyone who has contributed thier time efffort and talent over these three and one half years. This town has been good to us and we want you to know we reconise that. Thanks.

The bust was in a way sort of cool. Admittedly the going to court, paying fines and standing before a judge part really sucked, but you have to admit. .. what a way to go. I think there was something like a dozen vice cops that stormed the place right in the middle of National Blues Arsenals set. I do have to hand it to the cops, they said National Blues rocked. They are correct. Many thanks to the Arsenal for sticking around for moral support during the bust and to Ryan for joining us for court and cocktails after.

 Hogbutler out lived all of our expectations. It lasted, didn't burn down, none of the staff or patrons attempted to do permanent bodily harm to anyone else, the booze always ran out at the right time (hardly, when is it right to EVER run out of booze?) the sound system stayed intact, a hel of a lot of fun was had and no one can deny there was some very good music put up on that stage time and time again.

Some events that will always stick out, both good and bad:

Mr. Pac Man lighting my PA speakers on fire. ". . .Hey is smoke SUPPOSED to be comeing out of there?"

The Rok Tots are so fucking loud! But so fucking good!

Almost all women are attractive at 11am, and you have not slept in 24 hours, and are drunk as hell

The staff at Soundtown can fix anything.

Three and one half years of split drinks does not mop up. EVER.

More later.

Steve Blackheart please email me with your favourite Hobutler memories and I will put them here on the website for all to see and ridicule.
