Post Texas Arizona Turns Violent, Cheese Steak Mortally Wounded

February 8, 2010 by  

As though any of us needed another reason not to eat a cheese steak in bed, my roommate woke up the morning after our Texas Arizona show covered in blood and smashed Philly steak leftovers. The word “surreal” doesn’t even begin to describe this scene, of which I was alerted via a text message from […]

Texas Arizona Gigs Start This Saturday Night!!

February 4, 2010 by  

From now until June, you’ll be able to catch the TIP once a month at Texas Arizona in Hoboken. I know, I know, try to contain yourself. I’m excited too. Personally, I love Jersey gigs because (a) I hate leaving New Jersey and (b) this state loves its cover bands. Some girl once told Eric […]

The TIP Gets Some Hoboken Press!

February 4, 2010 by  

Finally, the TIP is making headlines for reasons other than sexual harassment or urinating in public. As we head into our five-month run of Hoboken shows this Saturday, TheBokenOnline.com was kind enough to post a nice write-up of the band and its roots. In case you were wondering how on earth six rudderless twenty-somethings were […]

First Gig of 2010 – Desmond’s Tavern, Friday Night!!

January 21, 2010 by  

The TIP’s first gig of 2010 will be held at none other than – you guessed it – Desmond’s Tavern this Friday night. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I will be playing at Desmond’s once every six months well into my 40’s, or until I’m claimed by AIDS at 38. Either […]

Underrated Huey Lewis Song: “Back in Time”

January 21, 2010 by  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjgpuib_8Kw Now that we’ve got some keys in the band, we’re finally able to add a Huey Lewis song to the mix and prevent Eric from having a full-on meltdown. I’m trying to muster up some love for “Back in Time,” which was a cut off of the original Back to the Future soundtrack but […]

Finally, A Solution for Uncontrollable Flatulence

January 20, 2010 by  

This is a subject that really hits close to home within the Just the Tip family. Hardly a gig goes by without someone stinking up the van or clearing out the entire left side of the stage. Todd, I’m looking in your direction. Well, now that’s all behind us thanks to the good people over […]

Recapping the JTT Holiday Party

January 20, 2010 by  

I’ll tell you this: If you assemble Eric, Tino, Uncle Jaan and Nick Cage and pool together their collective awesomeness, you’re destined for one amazing Xmas Party. But you probably already knew that. Sorry that I can’t offer you much in the way of a recap (which I guess makes the title of this post […]

Go Acoustic Tonight with the TIP at Stone Creek

December 11, 2009 by  

Check out Tino and Delange tonight at Stone Creek in the city for some acoustic music, TIP style. Todd will also be on hand to give me the stink eye every time I play a wrong chord. Stone Creek is on 27th right near the corner of Lexington. See you then!! Show Details Stone Creek […]

When the TIP Van Dies…

December 11, 2009 by  

We’ve been having some problems with the TIP van lately, so we’ve been out hunting for a suitable replacement. Chad found this gem in a parking deck last week: Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end… Only $4800!

Chad Parties with Mini Kiss

December 3, 2009 by  

Chad spent this past Wednesday partying with Mini Kiss, a Lilliputian rock tribute to the legendary 80’s band. Gotta say, I’m pissed that I missed this one. Little people doing anything is gold in my book. I’m glad they decided to emulate the original, full-makeup Kiss rather than the mid-80’s, coked-out no-makeup Kiss. For those […]
