Hey friends!

Just a quick note to let you know my husband Tommy Amoeba is playing tonight with his show Amoeba Knievel as the opening act for 2 groups from Japan, "Peelander-Z" and "Electric Eel Shock"!
I hope you can make it out!

I hope you are thinking on about what you will be wearing for the 17th Annual Ides of March March. Thursday March 15th we shall gather as we have in years past (almost 17 years to be somewhat exact) to celebrate the it that is and the us who is us in a grand nonsensical fashion for no apparent reason in grand mockery of reality at large. We shall gather at 6 pm at 12th and E Carson at Birmingham Square in South Side of Pittsburgh, PA, and depart at 7 p.m. to march to S 22nd St and then cross the street and come back again, stopping at the Beehive, South Side's original bastion of freak community , where we shall have some cake. We can only hang out til about 9 pm, at 9 is when the Beehive goes over 21 and becomes a bar. I mean, you can stay and drink, but the young'uns have to go.
Here's a link to some video South Side Vinni and Juicy Jay shot a couple years ago at the 15th Annual Ides of March March:

In my last email/blog blast I made a mistake which I would like to correct, I had mentioned the Cacophony Art Show currently on display in Santa Ana, CA which opened the night my cousin previewed his movie "Into the Zone" and I said that Rev Al had made the art show, when in truth, that installation was curated by my cousin Jon Alloway, the filmmaker, Rev Al of Art of Bleeding, and Albert Cuellar who has had major installations at MoMA and LACMA and has worked extensively for Tim Burton, David Lynch and many others. Together they all deserve the credit for  curating, designing and producing that incredible museum show which so beautifully documents Cacophony. If you are in Southern California, you should check the show, it's really something, to see the freaks who went before us and what they wrought, it is sheer inspiration.

If you can make it out tonight to my sweet Amoeba's show, I would love to see you. Here is what he had to say about his gig:
March 3, 10PM, $10, 21 and over
31st St Pub, 3101 31st St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201

Tonite will be a special nite in international relations and crazy rock n roll hijinks at the 31st St. Pub in the strip district as east meets west when Pittsburgh's own vanguards of rockin cartoon depravity, Amoeba Knievel, share a bill with long standing garage rock mavens Elecric Eel Shock and colorfully festooned rock weirdos called Peelander Z who claim to be from the Z section of the Planet Peelander by way of Japan and NYC

It'll be a nite of crazy costumes, onstage antics and unadulterated rock and roll out the wazoo!

For our part, Amoeba Knievel will hit the stage for the first time in months bringing their A-game rock-nanigans combined with their patented pop culture addled rock n roll onslaught. We are proud to announce that tonite the role of bass player will be played by the illustrious Justin Brown of Crawlin' Low Band and Alexei and the Justins fame.

Band order is Amoeba Knievel, Electric Eel Shock and Peelander-Z.
