Punk Rock

They oughta take a rope and hang me

Roger Miller punk cover at VooDoo Scooters

I love it when I get to see one of those things I want to see before I die.

It happened on Saturday night. My cousin Gina and I went to go see her mail man's punk band play at VooDoo Scooters on Central Avenue.

They were called “Demons” and played good old punk rock. The band is made up of members of Icky and the Yuks, an Albuquerque punk band that's been around as long as I can remember.

Though I was nervous that some strategically placed tiki torches were going to set my polyester shirt on fire and kill me, the band kept my attention.

Then it happened: they played a Roger Miller song, “Dang Me.” I have wanted to hear a punk version of my favorite country guy for as long as I can remember.

And they did it.

The other thing I wanted to see was a dugout and bull pen-clearing baseball fight, and I did back in 2004.

I decided that I had run out my string here on planet earth. I made a beeline to Denny's where I ate a grilled cheese sandwich made out of deep fried cheese sticks in an ultimately futile attempt at suicide.

Alas, I'm still here.
