    Wait, I’ve got another war torn land concert report! He’s playing WDMZ’s Indie Rock Showcase live from the Demilitarized Zone!! w00t!



    This just in:

    AP – Khandibar, Afghanistan – Violence erupted last night at J. Mascis’ preformance at the sold-out Beheadings and Soccer Field in Khandibar when a female audience member had the audacity to remove her bee-suit-esque head covering during an extended guitar solo in The Wagon. US opposition leaders already had been thrown into a tizzy over Mascis’ clever reworking of tradiotinal Jamacian hit "Come Mr. Tallyman," in which Mascis sang, "Come Mr. Taliban, Turn Over Bin Laden" during a jam out at the end of Freak Scene.

    Opposition leaders beheaded the young fan right there and then, as one young Afghanistani said, "It was like 1998 all over again! People were being beheaded all over the place for all sort of Koran related offenses." Some place partial responsibility on J. Mascis for continuing along with the next song on the setlist – Start Choppin’. Mr. Mascis could not be reached for comment, but his publicist has reported he will play his next two scheduled dates at Cairo Dome in Egypt, complete with his planned cover of Bangles’ hit Walk Like An Egyptian.



    J.’s getting more fucking press then fucking Eminem. Fucking TRL, here we fucking come.



    Damn, how’d you get that update before me Sludge? They never tell me anything… <img>



    LOL, Jaron & ‘sludge, you both are really crazy <img>
    you let the ‘Freedom’ flag fly – everywhere, around the world?! <img> <img> <img>



    Just to follow up on this–the full-up schedule of Cobra Verde dates with J, including a couple dates that weren’t finalized at the time of that previous e-mail, has been posted at the Cobra Verde official website, http://www.cobraverde.com .
