Swagometer: Brawling Strippers & Fat Tony's Filthy New Band Name
Despite what you may have heard, swag isn't dead yet; at least not in Houston. Have any swagged-out projects or general ideas? E-mail email@example.com.
Aside from working every day at Girls Rock Camp Houston, this week provided Rocks Off with its usually consistent amount of swag, and even a new, corny joke: Why did the hipster burn her mouth from eating pizza? Because she ate it before it was cool. Har, har, har.

This past Wednesday night, Ke$ha had a show in The Woodlands and Rocks Off's friend Ryan Grimes managed to snap the above pic of three young girlfriends, each dressed in T-shirts with a glittery "K." It's hard to know exactly where to start here, but we think that it's high time someone coins a term for Ke$ha fans; something similar to Insane Clown Posse's "Juggalos."
Swagometer: 0. No swag, but nevertheless, we think "this meme about to blow-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh."
Fat Tony finally returned "Home" from New York and had his first official welcome-back show at Boondocks last night. Chingo Bling helped out by doing a guest DJ set; we decided that only Chingo can mix the classic Juvenile dry-hump anthem, "Back Dat Ass Up" with a Latin beat.

Tony is embarking on a new project called Cunt Killer. We got handed the mysterious "Kill Cunt Smoke Blunts" 3-song demo three weeks ago, and only found out who the members were earlier this week. Fat Tony and guitarist Halston Luna have been writing songs for a while now; we got to sit in on a practice session while they were working with a potential vocalist. The songs are catchy and the chords comfortably linger in your brain after the first listen.
Devin Finch, local musician/comic-book artist/videographer/leather-clad jokeman has been working on new music under the moniker Adultry Kidding and we've been patiently waiting for new tunes. In the meantime, here's a track we dig called "Back Home."
