I'm out in San Diego. Did a show in Ocean Beach on Friday night. What happens when I do an out of town show and don't know anybody there? I sit in the back and get drunk while posting messages at twitter.com/mattruby. In case ya missed, here's the rundown (click photos for larger versions):

whoever named this hood "Ocean Beach" was not exceptionally creative. It is purty though.

To borrow the lingo of @robcantrell, I just fucked up a fish taco. Damn good. Mahi!

This seems like a good neighborhood to get 1) a tattoo or 2) in a fistfight. Esp considering the bouncer is drunkest guy in the bar.

I'm not sure the name of this place would fly in NYC.

At show and there's a guy wearing a hoodie and a tie. I really hope he is a comic.

Biggest laugh of the night so far = some joke about how marines always marry Filipino chicks. Crowd loved it! San Diego, you are adorable.

This room mutated from sour to hot to rowdy drunk. Fun time though. How it looked after 2.5 hrs:
I did Comedy Store in La Jolla last night which was also very fun. Another looooong show though. (What is it with Cali and these three hours shows?)
