Arlington VA - Goons House

According to Dandrew:

From Dandrew's Tour Sketchbook From Dandrew's Tour Sketchbook


According to Joe:

We showed up while VPR were playing. Saw the Daycare Swindlers play an excellent set. Then we went on at around 1 PM. We played one song - RIPPED OFF - and the cops showed up and shut the show down. We packed up and drove to a secluded farm about an hour away.


According to Steve:

      I arrived at the Bungaglow and was greeted by Jezabelle.   Me and Chris then begin to play equipment Jenga.   Fitting all of our gear, luggage, and Brian is no small task.   But then a fellow Polo-American, John Paul wheels like the pizza delivery boy of wisdom and suggstes taking the captians chair nearest the sliding door out.   After that, things come togethr quite nicely If I do say so myself.   Chris agrees.   So does Ceci. I also fitted the Bull Horns that I stole from the Fire to the grill of the Budget van with a coat hanger.   I think that was very creative of me , and the results were very, very boss.   
      Then Dandrew shows up courtesy of a Mr. Chris Mahoney.   Chris Mahoney had shaved his beard before I ever got to see him sporting it and it made me die a little inside.We then sit around and bitch because Brain and Joe aren't there, but not for long, because they soon roll up.   Off to the Goon's.
      Chris Peelout, Ceci, and Bri rolled in Ceci's car, and me, Dandrew, and Joe rode in the Van.   We stopped at a rest stop and Joe purchased a really sucky, cold Whopper.   Joe got pissed right the fuck off, only ate half of it.   He then gave the remaining half o' Whopper to Dandrew who bite into and exclaimed "Gee Joe, tis Whopper really is cold.   I don't want it."   No one offered me any cold sucky Whopper, and to be frank, I was glad.   Joe offered me some Burger King fries however, and I found them to be mediocre at best.   Fuck Burger King.
      After we got bac on th road, we got stuck in construction traffic. I was like "Oh Shit, the Goon's Keg is gonna be kicked before we get there."   Once we arrived I made a bee line to the keg and grabbed a brew.   The Keg was flowing a little too slowly for my liking, so I ran to the 7-11.   The clerk rang up my Steel Reserve brand malt liquir, then rang up some other dude before I handed him my money.   I was all "What the fuck, dude?"   Other dude then explained the retared beer laws to me.   Apparently 7-11   stops selling beer at midnight.   I ran to the beer fridge to grab another forty, but the fridge doors automatically lock.   I counted my blessings and walk out with my solo forty, while some dude begged the clerk to let him but beer after midnight.   What a loser.
      I went back to the show and conversated with Aimee from Bean soda, and met her new puppy Olive. I tried to share my 40 wih Olive but "thats not for ladies".   We set up our equipment and played ripped off.   Chris was out of tune, and got mad and gave up.   While Brian was tuning Chris's guitar, the police showed up and threatened Ryan with a $500 fine if we played another song.   Chris joked that they were the out of tune Police.   I retorted that the EMT's (emergency music tuners) will show up next.   We both had a hearty laugh over that.   
      So we went to Noah from the Daycare Swindler's house to crash.   Bri made Noah's dog do an excited dance.   Good times.      



According to Brian:
