Best New Tradition. Ever.

I have so much more I could write about this . . . suffice it to say that this band . . .

With these folks . . . (and Bad Blood . . . he missed this picture) . . .

PokerPeaker, StB, DrChako, CA April, and Dr. Jeff (of the Otis clan)


Is the BEST NEW VEGAS TRADITION. EVER.

In fact, it was days later I realized I did not take part in the famed Vegas "procedure". Or have any skillets.

Even if you didn't grow up with 80's hair metal on the car stereo while you made out like fiends on some side road a mile from your parent's house hoping you didn't get caught (hypothetically speaking, of course), you have to fall in love with this cover band. Their renditions of some of the most famous hair metal bands were pretty spot on, the video screens before the show gave us all fond flashbacks to the classic hair metal videos of the 80's and early 90's, and to top it all off, it was Bad Santa and Naughty Mrs. Claus night.

If you go next year and don't invite me , I swear to God you will get nothing but a lump of coal in your stocking. And up your ass if you also forget to invite PokerPeaker and Dr. Jeff.

BTW, this show is not for the faint of heart. If we were playing a drinking game for every time they said "c**k" or other choice NC-17 words, we would have been in the Clark County hospital with alcohol poisoning.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. For those about to rock . . . we salute you.

Our waitress? Cute as a button. And no, I'm not trying to grab her boob.

She even had a tail!

Drinks are accumulating . . . and the concert hasn't even started.

Dr. Jeff gets himself a little reindeer game . . . only for photographic accuracy, of course.


Lead singer . . . described accurately by the guitarist as "Fat David Lee Roth".


Even had the light show - very official.

Thank god for zoom lens.

Rage solo - check out the mohawk at 7:00.

Wail, baby!

Guitarist accompanies himself on drums . . .



Some people stayed up past their bedtimes . . .

"What? Me? Mrs. Naughty Santa? But these are just my club clothes!"

The aftermath.

Plastic surgery at its finest . . . the little red back is hiding the other 85% of the silicone.

Dr. Jeff consoles the "runner-up" in the Mrs. Naughty Santa Claus contest.
Respectfully submitted,
The Wife
PS: Their MySpace page quote? "We f***ed your mom back in the 80's." Completely irreverent. Lol . . .

I remember the picture with the waitress, but I don't remember the pic with the Amazon Santa Woman. Damn shame, she's smokin'. I had an insanely good time. The GreyGooseRedBulls were flowing pretty easily, so the end of the evening is a little fuzzy.

I second Blood - I will not go to Vegas again without seeing this show.
