Roland has decided to pursue other interests and will be leaving us after February. So being that Roxy's is our favorite place to play, we thought it would be fitting to celebrate him on this night.
We are not breaking up in any way. Matt, Chris and I have some leads on some bass players. We'll still be scheduling gigs so keep your eye out for the ringerz!

A little musician humor from those nice folks at MusiciansCooler.com ....
1. It becomes more important to find a place on stage for your fan than your amp
2. Your gig clothes make you look like George Burns out for a round of golf.
3. All your fans leave by 9:30 p.m.
4. All you want from groupies is a foot massage and back rub
5. You love taking the elevator because you can sing along with most of your playlist
6. Instead of fifth member, your band wants to spring for a roadie
7. You lost the directions to the gig
8. You need your glasses to see the amp settings
9. You've thrown out your back jumping off the stage
10. You feel like hell before the gig even starts.
11. The waitress is your daughter
12. You stop the set because your ibuprofen fell behind the speakers
13. Most of your crowd just sways in their seats
14. You find your drink tokens from last month's gig in your guitar case
15. You refuse to play without earplugs
16. You ask the club owner if you can start at 8:30 instead of 9:30
17. You check the TV schedule before booking a gig
18. Your gig stool has a back rest
19. You're related to at least one member in the band
20. You don't let any one sit in
21. You need a nap before the gig
22. After the third set, you bug the club owner to let you quit early.
23. During the breaks, you now go to the van to lay down
24. You prefer a music stand with a light
25. You don't recover until Tuesday afternoon
26. You hope the host's speech lasts forever…..
27. You buy amps considering their weight and not their tone or cool factor.
28. Feeling guilty looking at hot women at the bar 'cause they're younger than your daughter.
29. You can remember seven different club names for the same location
30. You have a hazy memory of the days when you could work 10 gigs in 7 days … *and* could physically do it.

This Friday, Jan. 25, Satantonio will debut their newest member.

Jerry has played with Monkeysoop for 5 years now and
decided to expand into the Suburbs of HELL with us.
So come to Jiggers and check out the new depth of Satantonio.
We are the opening band for some great acts so show up early
and stay all night.

Somebody STOLE our drums and cymbals this last friday night in Houston.
It was a brand new Gretcsh 6p and about $1,200 of Ziljin A Custom cymbals.
Steve is going to have to use a back up set of old Ludwigs, which, is nowhere near the finely tuned instrument he had. S!_!ucks.
We will be using our tip jar at upcoming shows to help in replacing Steve's drum set.
There is a reward posting in the Houston Craigs List - Musical Instruments for sale- " Maroon Gretcsh reward $300"
If you would like to help us recover quickly, we have a donation link on our site http://www.supercrashrocks.com
Or simply come to a show and put something in the tip jar.
Thanks for your support
Jim , Jaime, and Steve

If you look back through the archives (going back to 2005) and think about how much fun it's been, and how much it's meant to have Rowan's work online, the local band's hard work as well, it's just COOL!
Thanks to all for your help!
So I say to you, those of you who want to see SA Rocks continue... if it is important to you, PITCH IN! Even if it's only ten bucks! Kel and I figured today that $130 would keep the site up for another year. So if 13 people would each contribute $10, we'd be set. I just don't see why we should bust our humps to keep the site going if no one cares enough to help out when things get rough. Therefore, it's up to you guys...should we stay or should we go now?!
January 20, 2008
But...well, you may remember a while back when I was afraid I was going to be shut down whether I liked it or not, because my credit card bill was over the limit. Well, since then, it has been over the limit every month due to the monthly charges for SA Rocks. We have been trying very hard to get it back down, but we can only afford to pay so much per month. So, every month, the charges have brought it back over the limit and they have charged me a $39 fee each month. So the site has been costing me $39 extra per month and we just can't get it back down. We can't afford to pay $60 a month for the site.
Also, the domain name that my account is under is also up for renewal on the 24th and I don't have the money for that. Plus the sarocks.com domain name will be up for renewal soon, and I don't have the money for that, either. So, I really have no choice but to shut it down.
When I explained my financial situation before, several people wrote me and offered to help out to keep it open, but no one actually DID help out, so now I'm afraid I'm screwed. Not to be bitchy, but everyone wants me to keep it going, but no one actually wants to help out. With the exception of Kelly...if it wasn't for her hard work, the site would have been defunct months ago.
Anyway, I will have to cancel my account within the next few days. I can keep the blog open if you guys want. Evidently, I can't find the time nowadays to post anything here, but if Kel and the other members want to keep it going, we can do that. You guys let me know if you want to or not. If not, I'll shut it down, too. As for the forum, right now I pay to keep it free from pop-up ads, but I can't afford to do that anymore. If you guys find it useful, I can keep it open, but there will be pop-up ads. If those don't bother you, we can do it that way. Again, let me know what you want.
I have had a blast doing this site, and hopefully someday, when my family and financial obligations change, I can do something like this again. I have heard SO much good music and met so many cool people doing this!! It has really been awesome!
BTW, when I shut this down, I will probably shut down my current email accounts as well, just because I am subscribed to so many mailing lists that the email load is ridiculous. But anyone who actually wants to email me as a friend can probably find me through Kel...I'll be giving her my new email addy.
I'll miss doing this, but I'm sure I'll be seeing you guys around. I'm still a music lover, and as soon as I recover from Christmas, I'll be back out there enjoying the music!! Love you guys...
