Friday night was pretty nuts. My boys Semi Precious Weapons are back in town doing a bunch of dates with Lady Gaga at Radio City Music Hall. They decided to turn the weekly Trash party into a shoot for their song “Semi Precious Weapons”. I figured the song was called “I Can’t Pay My Rent, But I Am Fucking Gorgeous” being as that is the hook, but clearly I am wrong. Evidently it’s self titled. My fault.
Anyway, after hearing the song 25 times in a row Friday night I probably should be sick of it, but it’s a pretty serious song. They have done a video for it before, and used it as the sound track to a Beatlemaniaesque promotional video. It was also on their first album, and their EP and I guess it will be on their next album too since they are doing a video for it and all… I am sure they are sick as hell of it, but that’s how the music industry works. You have to promote the same 5 songs for three fucking years. It’s pretty awful, but at least it’s a rad song and I am excited to see the video.
I did a pretty epic stage dive off a monitor into a crowd of 18 year old girls. Everyone moved out of the way and I landed on my back but not before putting my hand into the lovely Suicide Girl Bettina’s face. Woops. Justin from SPW announced to the crowd that I had done that the last time they played Webster Hall and informed me that I had broken his friend Krista’s wrist in the process. I felt pretty bad about that since Krista is my birhday twin (May 29th, 1980). No one broke anything this time, but my back still hurts like hell two days later. I hope it makes it into the video, but I have my doubts…
This gallery is pretty nuts because I was kinda using my camera as a prop in the video. I took several hundred pictures without even looking in the view finder. I was just dancing and running around taking photos of anything. Everyone got super drunk and super naked. I think there was an open bar at some point because it was out of control in there. When the video was almost over and I realized it was after 3am. I have no idea how the night went so fast when the only song we heard all night was “Semi Precious Weapons”. It actually made for a great night. Everyone was partying as hard as they could to get filmed. It was one of the best Trash’s in a long time. Party for fucking ever.
Ps. Congrats to SPW for all the successes they have had. I have known these dudes forever and I actually like their band unlike most of my friends bands. I just hope that if they get as big as I think they will that they will take me on tour with them or something and maybe they can help me pay my rent, because I am not quite as gorgeous….
