MORE LA HOT MEETUP ACTION! Inside: Scotch, punk rock, and YOU!

So, a couple of y'all at the meet-up were like, hey-a, let's hit that Daily Pint and get some Scotch in our blood. And I was, like, two weeks from now? And y'all were like, yeah.

So, how's the 9th look for the Daily Pint in Santa Monica?

Also, on February 20 at the Smell, Thurston Moore is playing, with a metric assload of bands opening. (Even further down the road, The Oh Sees are playing there in March).

Interested?

I work right by the Daily Pint! Maybe I can actually pull this one off, even if I am in total lockdown crunch mode!

OoOoOo Cocktails instead of beer is always a plus for me...

Punk Rock and an R. Kelley reference! Who could ask for anything more? So, yeah nice. I'm down for The Smell.

Oh, Space Kitty (I've never really felt adept at nomenclature conflicts between real and online), Daily Pint isn't so much cocktails as liquor, though I do encourage you to come out.

Is this gonna be a meet and greet...or a meetup like Meredith from the Office who gets Outback gift certs from her meetups?

I don't think I'll be able to make LACMA, =( damn work, but the 9th works and scotch works too. The last time I saw Moore live he was totally outperformed by xbxrx. It's hard to top skinny young men stripping out of their little girl Sunday school outfits while screaming and breaking things on stage, no matter how important and rad your band is. I'd like to give him another chance, though. We'll see. I haven't been to The Smell, is this the sort of thing that'll sell out easy?

The 9th looks doable for me.
posted by Bookhouse at 5:31 PM on January 31, 2009


Eh, no nomenclature conflict - I'm sure I answer to my screen name at least as often as I do to my real one. And cocktails = everything that's not beer. Therefore, I'm in!

Wait, did I do my math wrong? Is the 9th actually a Monday? That's not what I meant to do… Hmm…

Ah, well, it's on my side of town at least. But let me know if folks need it moved to a weekend…
posted by klangklangston at 9:25 AM on February 2, 2009


I'm definitely interested in the Friday show; Monday anything infitely less so.

I was wondering why you did that. It's not a horrible night and I could probably make it, but I imagine we'd get better turnout on a Friday or something.

Yeah, I was looking at a 2008 calendar and trying to count out the days until the next weekend and PROVED I AM NOT GOOD AT COUNTING.

dang! wrong thread! too much fun about these parts.
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 12:16 PM on February 3, 2009


Yeah, so, howsabout not the 9th, but rather, the Friday that comes after the 9th, which would be the 13th? (CHECK MY MATH!)

Cool, or spoooooooky?
posted by klangklangston at 12:50 PM on February 3, 2009


kooky?

Let's do it.

All together ookey.

Hey, who was it that wanted that mix of stuff from Ann Arbor? Was that you, Carson?

hells yes.

Hey, whoa, heyyyyy.. did somebody say Friday? 'cuz I could do Friday. (And it would like it.)
posted by katillathehun at 3:48 PM on February 9, 2009


It would like it?

Yes, Friday. Frrrrrrrriday.

B3cuz I am teh bad at MAFF.

At the ScotchatoriumDaily Pint.

Also, I will make Carson the mix. Maybe tonight even. Then, when I look for new jobs, I can send my resume and this kickin' mix tape I made, but don't take the love songs too seriously because I just met you, y'know?
posted by klangklangston at 4:59 PM on February 9, 2009


So is there a meetup tonight in Santa Monica? Or the 13th somewhere instead?

I live on the Toluca Lake/Studio City border and am carless, so hopefully the 13th... it'd take hours to get to Santa Monica via public transit ;)

Yeah. Friday likes it like that. That's what I'm sayin'.

Dang. Once again, I can't go. I'll be in Palm Springs watching my wife ride 55 miles on her bike.

Would people be game for a night of bowling up at the Montrose Bowl some time in the future? If you swing things right, you get the whole place to yourself for the evening.
posted by Argyle at 2:15 PM on February 10, 2009


Where is that? I know that my friends and I have bowled at the um… Sha-Do (or whatever Korean transliteration of Chateau) lanes on Chateau in Koreatown, and that was pretty easy to get a lane and cheap beer…

By the way, the meetup is sidebarred.
posted by klangklangston at 2:29 PM on February 10, 2009


Okay, I'm in. Even though it means missing* the debut of Dollhouse, which is probably going to be really bad anyway.

*by missing, I mean downloading, of course.

Done.

Wait, another meetup? L.A. must have twice as many meetups as those losers in the bay area or NYC!
posted by Justinian at 6:01 PM on February 10, 2009


Only because we're desperately insecure.

Also, we call them "networking."
posted by klangklangston at 6:30 PM on February 10, 2009


I thought we called them "cuddle parties."
posted by katillathehun at 7:32 PM on February 10, 2009


I thought we called them "fursuit raves"?
posted by speicus at 9:18 PM on February 10, 2009 [1 favorite]


I thought "fursuit raves" were "dance night" at the schnackler residence.

I'd love to make the 13th, but I'm drinking with a Dutchman that night (no, I am, seriously, but it does sound like a euphemism for some heinous act.)
posted by ob at 9:25 AM on February 11, 2009


Sorry to miss it -- I'll be in Seattle, reliving my high school glory days by seeing Denver's hometown punk rock heroes, THE FLUID! (The World Famous, I promise to bring you a t-shirt.)

Every time I post in a meetup thread that I'll be there something comes up. I'm not jinxing it this time!

speicus claims that we will be there
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 1:55 PM on February 12, 2009


So, did I miss a mention of the time this meetup is happening?
posted by katillathehun at 3:31 PM on February 12, 2009


I was wondering that too.
posted by Bookhouse at 4:15 PM on February 12, 2009


I was wondering if there was a time for the meeting, that is, not whether or not katilla had missed a mention of same.
posted by Bookhouse at 4:16 PM on February 12, 2009


It's okay, Bookhouse. Everyone wonders if I missed something most of the time. I'm... I'm used to it.
posted by katillathehun at 7:27 PM on February 12, 2009


I'm assuming 7-ish.
posted by Space Kitty at 8:25 PM on February 12, 2009


Oh, shit, yeah, 7ish. Why not 7ish? 7ish it is.

Last minute notice, but if anybody wants to bring some pink chaddis, I'm taking up a collection to send out over the weekend.

The Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women - represent!

...And I'll bring some tator tots too.

*gets CoP-gLaFW card out*

We'll come by after Katzelmacher. I'm gonna try to make my mom come, too. She's like, a Grand Wizard.
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 12:40 AM on February 13, 2009


I figured klang didn't mention a time 'cause he was going to start drinking really early and just not stop.
posted by Justinian at 1:35 PM on February 13, 2009


I can't find a ride form the valley, so I guess I'm out :(

again.
posted by starscream at 6:25 PM on February 13, 2009


Eh, from!
posted by starscream at 6:25 PM on February 13, 2009


How late can I show up? I'll be working until about 10pm.
posted by pazazygeek at 6:28 PM on February 13, 2009


Perhaps asking this question 30 minutes before the event is bad form.
posted by pazazygeek at 6:28 PM on February 13, 2009


I probably won't be there that late but if it's like any other meetups there's a good chance it'll still be going around then. If I remember, I'll try to check back in on the thread later on and give you a heads up, pazazygeek.
posted by dhammond at 6:52 PM on February 13, 2009


Haha. Running late (fuck trader joes) be there by 7:30 hopes.
posted by klangklangston at 6:52 PM on February 13, 2009


starscream, if you're quick to call or text, we can get you. We're on 101S and still 15m from Vta Blvd. I have gas this time, shut up, yous. 8057015641

Skipping Katzelmacher, sadly.
posted by Ambrosia Voyeur at 6:53 PM on February 13, 2009


Thanks dhammond! It's on my way home, so I may poke my head in just to see, no harm in that!
posted by pazazygeek at 7:01 PM on February 13, 2009


We need a gang sign or something. Everyone in this bar looks like a mefite.
posted by Bookhouse at 7:20 PM on February 13, 2009


Nevermind. It's 9pm and my to-do list is getting longer. Damnit. I want to meet you people!

The irony is I'm here working late on something Transformers related, so seeing people talking about Starscream in this thread is really messing with my mind.
posted by pazazygeek at 9:03 PM on February 13, 2009


That's too bad. Still going strong over here if you don't get out too late.
posted by dhammond at 9:24 PM on February 13, 2009


I was told there would be tators. Where were the taters?
posted by mandymanwasregistered at 11:55 PM on February 13, 2009


The taters are a lie.
posted by Justinian at 12:51 AM on February 14, 2009


The hardcore tators were over here. The softcore taters were over there. Where were you?

Also, I like scotch.

Dammit! Thanks for the offer, Ambrosia Voyeur! I ended up cracking open a bottle of wine and planting myself on the couch and completely missed it :(

Well, I might be. I waiting to hear about a meeting that I'm meant to have this weekend, but I have no idea when that'll be... Also, I noticed that The Smell is dry, but if I can make it, I have a watering hole in mind.

Probably not. I'm totally fucking wasted from this goddamned week at work.

I put a movie in. Oh well!
