My first Puddle of Mudd show ever! I’m not sure what to expect to be honest.. I’m pretty sure these guys are way too big for this crappy venue.. & I’m sure someone in charge will be hearing about this later.. anyway I have been to this place a million times throughout the years to hang with the Guidos & sit on the beach.. I’m pretty excited since I’m sure I can work my way to the front..
Mica & me during our pre-show antics and mingling with the locals.. We were surprised at just how many old ladies were at the show (seriously 50+) & they really seem to dig Wes the singer.. apparently they all think the other guys are way too thin..
Wow the show is underway and I’m really really impressed! Beautiful voice.. sounds sorta like Kurt Cobain.. nice..
She F%@kin’ Hates me… “woohoo were shootin Video”
This photo shows just how hard these boys rocked the house.. and also just how close we were.. ha ha in front of the baracade what? oh I’m a guest of the opening act? Sweet! Thanks Danger..”I love you” too, Saving Abel nicest guys ever..
Bringin down the house with Blurry… super sweet!
Mica & Me.. She wore that vintage Motley Crue tank special for me.. awe soo sweet.. Thanks girlie! You’re the best!
It’s nice to meet you too, Douglas.. umm he had me climb up on top of the speakers to sit & chat with him.. but then proceeded to be way more interested in what his blackberry had to say… that’s ok we cool we cool.. cute hat by the way.
After the show, the guys went over to their Merch table to hock their goods & sign countless autographs, boobs & babies.. The line wrapped all the way to the back of the club out onto the deck.. We opted to wait until the line died down.. in the meantime we were able to capture the infamous South Jersey (possibly Staten Island) Guido in his natural habitat dancing.. doing his mating call.. Then Mica proceeded to do the “Robot”, utter genius.. good times had by all..
Wes.. seems like a happy guy.. I’m not sure he quite “gets” me though.. I was really excited to be wearing that top.. isn’t it just the cutest?
This is Ryan.. hmm.. something about a drummer.. wink wink.. back atchya
Although Christian appears jazzed to be taking this photo with the one & only Toni.. I’m pretty sure he was just going through the motions.. sigh, why so sad? :-(. awe he must be over it all.. But didn’t Mica’s rendition of the Robot amuse you just a little bit?
ahhh.. skinny unkempt rocker boys… maybe I do have a weakness? ;-P I hope they knew I was just joking about selling my autographed ticket on Ebay.. ;-D
After all was said and done…
Security seemed so nice… until..
one of their people decided to rough me up!! This is my arm all red & irritated.. ;-(.I was leaving the club when I felt someone push me hard from behind open palmed.. I must have flown 10ft fwd.. When I turned around I saw it was a yellow shirted security guy.. I said “you didn’t have to hit me.. you could have asked me to move”.. at that point another security guard, this one in a white shirt toting a gun (no doubt an off duty cop), gets in my face and yells “Shut the F@$K Up!” I was shocked & disgusted.. I said “I will not”.. mind you I was speaking very calm.. He proceeds to grab me by my wrists & drags me like a rag doll through the restaurant! He was squeezing my wrists very hard with the intention of hurting me.. This is a 6’+ man at least 300lbs.. I’m 5’0 tall & petite.. WTF! This man clearly hates women.. When I got outside I was greeted by 4 uniformed police officers who asked to see my license… Really Pt. Pleasant 4 cops?? I gave them my id & they were actually nice.. They felt bad but couldn’t do anything.. The guy inside tried to say I took a swing at him.. wow I had a half bottle of some bad lite beer the entire night..
Aww then my new friend Danger showed up to cheer me up.. He said that the security was really shitty to them too and even pushed their base player around.. The injustice! Mica brought up how these guys would feel if someone pushed around their Sister or Mom. ..Danger was pretty pissed when he thought about it that way.. he even ran back to Jenks to make a complaint.. ..So we decided hangin out by their tour buses was a good idea to get my mind off of things..
This is Jason.. he plays in that band Saving Abel I told you about before..I never heard of them until tonight.. but they were pretty good.. They have this song that must be about the military.. at one point the crowd broke into a USA chant.. I wonder if the bouncer who likes to hit women was chanting along?? hmm food for thought.. Anyway, I don’t think I ever heard a Mississippi accent before.. wow that’s some accent Jason! He kept insisting “we” looked high in the photos.. well, I know I wasn’t high.. I’m just sayin..
I look really thin in this photo.. so I figured it was a good photo to end this blog with…. Over all this was a super fun night.. even with the bit of Drama that went on…. So keep your eyes opened.. you never know where I will turn up next.. maybe at your show.. X Toni
