Last Saturday afternoon, one quarter of goth-punk band Grave Babies ambled towards Cairo, American Spirit and American mullet in tow. ("I just started smoking like, 4 or 5 months ago")
We spent the day dressing him up in Cairo jewels, T-shirts, and backpacks, Danny eventually adopting the "welcome back to school, asshole" mentality midway through his photo shoot. The last look featured a wooden staff, suitable for traversing great lands OR impersonating Britney. Also, it must be noted that I haven't ever seen anyone get so excited about a Chicago Bulls T as Danny...
The antisocialite, along with the other 75% of Grave Babies can be listened to/creeped on here. If you want to get serious, go to the Funhouse on APRIL 29TH for the ggnzla Movie Premiere Night to see them perform IN PERSON.
Check out the guest appearance by beloved Frank C below!

Oh, I don’t know. A human being I guess.

Well it was in an elevator, so I guess elevator music.
Song playing when approaching the pearly gates:
I don’t believe in god.
Most bizarre occurrence at a show:
My friend once sold smut out of his trench coat at my show at the Holy Mountain…

Oh! I can spin a basketball on every finger, including my thumbs.
