Tuesdays with Dirty: Link dump and random shit

This is going to be a pretty weak post. Mostly because the riding is off the hook right now in the desert southwest and I have better shit to do than type. So here it goes:

This might be the link of the week so far, keep hitting refresh notahipsterbecause.com.

A few years ago I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of this guy named Tony, he makes nice bikes. He just finished the women’s prize for the 2008 SSCXWC (Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships) and it is a fine machine. You can see the Flickr gallery of it here. Nice bikes are worth the wait.

There is a good amount of stuff going on in my town and one worth mentioning is the Brides of March . Seems like it is going to be a rowdy good time while wearing a dress. It might be worth checking out just to spectate.  Unfortunately I will be out of town…maybe next year.

This just in from nyhc00: BMX meets “art” probably NSFW.

The next two days are stacked with good music for me. Tomorrow night is the the legendary Cro-Mags. If you don’t know this band, study up.  Our friend Bikesnobnyc summed up that the singer John Joseph as being “so tough he probably keeps “fixies” in his Saxo Bank jersey pocket and eats them instead of Clif Bars”.  Here is a little video of the man, you decide.

Another old hardcore guy and bike rider, Tim Barry, will be here too. Formerly the lead singer of the band AVAIL and now tours solo doing this punk country/acoustic/folk type stuff. It’s good shit and it goes well with whiskey. I would highly recommend checking his tour dates and trying to catch him when he comes near your town.

See ya next week. Until then… keep it dirty.

  1. John Joseph does seem tough as hell, but it does give me hope that he falls a little short on those pull-ups at 3:00. I can’t wait til his book “Meat is for Pussies” drops.

  2. After I saw them on their Age of Quarrel tour, which was one of the craziest shows I’ve seen, I see no reason to see them again. They cannot possibly stand up to what I’ve already witnessed. Shit was totally off the meter. That album changed everything. Fuck. I’m old.

  3. BJ,
    I couldn’t agree with you more. since you are a fair amount older than me, all i saw was the last reunion tour. so to have them 1 mile down the street from me is gonna be pretty sick

  4. Avail was one of my favorite bands when I was growing up.

    Tim Barry let my little brother and I onstage to take pictures of them when we were 10 and 12 years old while they played. We had disposable kodaks but felt like professional photographers that night. That band had everything that made the punk music scene in my hometown at that time so great. Awesome guys, nice as hell to the kids, treated you like family. My high school senior quote is by Tim Barry.

    I’m definitely feeling his solo work as well. Glad to see he’s out living life as it should be lived. One big adventure.

    I was just in Richmond VA for NAHBS and was hoping to see him live but it didn’t happen. Damn, now i’m being overwhelmed with memories of the past. I want to be 12 again.
