    Clubmageddon on Carmageddon weekend. I'm glad I did NOT go out & waste my gas, time nor money. People & businesses are doing some shady sh*t due to the f*cked up economy.

    You are A stupid DICK
    who trys to make money on your friends but failed
    FUCK YOU LOSER

    What's going on with the website, Travis? No longer using Disqus? I also can't see the authors of the most recent articles. More changes on the way or is this permanent?

  4. FactCheckingNerd says:

    Don't you mean JULY 16th? It has been a long time since there was a Saturday June 16th… way to long to keep this kind of rage bottled up.

    Put some shows on at Old Towne Pub is Pasadena. You can keep 100% of your door. We're totally band friendly. Ask Bobby from Stab City.

  6. fucktioneer says:

    Yeah, you should have figured this was going to happen. When's the last time a band played El Cid that wasn't just some Craigslist casual encounter gone wrong? No one plays that shit dive, and this is why.

  7. Head Buddy says:

    Travis is lying. I have all the facts

  8. Head Buddy says:

    a real promoter would have gotten an upfront advance based on their history and clout. then at least the bands YOU fucked over in paying arent out 100%. It's funny how you blame others because you're shitty at business. The 90's are over and handshakes are for basement parties.

  9. shit sandwich says:

    I heard Travis told the bands he was getting 5% of the bar to pay them. then he went to some waitress and demanded 10% immediately before they even counted the numbers.

  10. bobbystabcity says:

    woah i had no idea this happened. el cid sucks anyways. and yes the old towne pub is a cool place and they give you 100% of the door but ive had my shit stolen there twice which is why i havent been back in a while. its not their fault but im bitter lol. el cid charges soooo much for drinks and they couldnt even kick down to the people who brought them business. thats fucking lame. Team Travis!!!!

  11. Buddyhole says:

    You guys are fags for even listening to what I say. I've been bullshitting you for years and made you believe that I'm cool. The truth is is that, I, Buddyhole, am a gay ass hole douche bag and for all you know, I pocketed the money. Been burning people for years, and now I'm pretending to be the victim. You're all fools anyways. You'll never get it. I'm a lame low-self esteem dork. Don't mind the douche behind the curtain.

    Oasis is the best band,

  13. FIM says:

    Ya El Cid has never been friendly towards bands. Fuck Bullshit. Make Art.

    Finally someone confirms my suspicion…the first time we played El Cid we were just starting out as a band so we were like "oh shit a show in silverlake, this is huuuuge!" so we were all amped for it…little gaylords that we were, we were blind to a series of fucked up events that nowadays would send us packing and cancelling the gig but that night it was just like "ok whatever we have to do". Here is the shit they pulled: 1. didnt let us start playing until 15 people who were there to see us specifically had paid to get in. This was kind of a drag because they were adamant that our set finish at a precise time which they would not change! So there we were, dicks in hand, every minute that went by another minute that we wouldnt be able to perform. Finally I got extremely pissed off and jumped off the stage and was literally about to kill the fucking promoter- I wont name names but I will definitely lump him in with the management and anyone who books bands at this actually really cool looking but horribly run venue- I ended up having to pay like 100 dollars to make up for the entrance fees that a total of 15 people would have paid…I had people texting me saying they were on the way and eventually far more than 15 people showed but they would not give me back my money…also they said that since we had booked a gig within 3 weeks of the one at el cid they were not going to honor the terms of their fucking contract which stipulated that we get a cut of the door and bar.

    The second time we played here the booking person had us sharing a bill with bands that were nothing like us. The sound guy seemed wasted off his ass…again there was no pay and I dont even think they floated us any booze. I ended up manning the outside bar however and letting anyone who was game stick their heads under one of the beer taps…

    This place was built by DW Griffith to screen his racist epic "Birth of a Nation" which was basically the first blockbuster, let alone the first narrative film to come out of hollywood…the existence of this place marks the beginning of a cultural revolution and the media empire that calls hollywood its epicenter…unfortunately it is run by grossly shrewd, culturally ignorant and severely insincere buttsuckers…boycott this mofo amen. New management,,, iM going to buy it and turn it into a meat and whiskey/ coors light only restaurant/ bar…fuck you el shid!

    "The 90's are over and handshakes are for basement parties. " What a stupid thing to say… El Cid seems cool and laid back…. guess it's not. I couldn't even imagine how bad the sound is in there. Seems unprofessional [which was somewhat appealing about doing business there], like you could run the place if you bring some traffic. Now it just seems creepy.
    Hope the place falls into the right hands.

  20. Travi McKellar says:

    after all that trouble you only had a suspicion? it's stupid people like you (and travis) who perpetuate anecdotal evidence as proof that it is what you say. The mere fact that you shelled out your own money and put up with that treatment shows how stupid you are. Nothing Travis wrote about El Cid is true and I'm positive your version of events if skewed by your ignorance.

    you broke the terms of their contract regarding booking within 3 weeks and you blame them for calling you on the breach? what a stupid shit you are.

    after your first horrible experience you played there again and didnt get any upfront guarantee in writing?

  21. Dr. Shitvago says:

    FYI Travis lied about this whole event. He fucked over the bands he booked and tried to blame it on some club. Time to adjust your meds douchebag.

  22. buddystab says:

    Dude is a fucking heroin junkie who rips people off left and right. You losers who follow him are fucking twats.

  23. Anon says:

    It's funny how these fake accounts keep saying Travis is lying – almost the exact same thing happened to my friends band when they played El Cid a month before this. Fuck that place.

  24. Chris says:

    Fuck the El Cid. I've seen the results of their shitty management and underhanded tactics as well. The community is well aware that these guys are douche-nozzles.

  25. Travis Keller says:

    WOOOOOOOO! How's that 20k you spent on that shitty show this weekend? Losing money much? HAHA!

  26. Tom says:

    Stupid hipsters.

    ha ha. http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/karma.htm
    could have happened better to two of the biggest aholes on the planet at travis and aaron.

  29. hedge funds says:

    A hedge fund typically pays its investment manager a management fee, which is a percentage of the assets of the fund, and a performance fee if the fund's net asset value increases during the year. Some hedge funds have a net asset value of several billion dollars. As of 2009, hedge funds represented 1.1% of the total funds and assets held by financial institutions.
