I have no idea what I am doing 

Last week of semester and I am a derp. So here is my horrible entry today. Enjoy?     And here is an obligatory internet kitten:

<3 Suze 

You know, us here in The Dregs enjoy a certain level of fun-making. And by level, we mean HUGE EXTREME and by fun-making we mean BEATING THE EVER-LIVING SHITE OUT OF IT. I’ve had fans ask me before a show starts who are we going to ‘get’. Turns out, it’s a free for all! Hooray fair game shenanigans! Hence lesbians in socks. For those of you who don’t know, that song is clearly only used as a vehicle with which to throw Suze while she is singing. We all know Suz doesn’t like puppets. We enjoyed last year at MRF […]

cutting corners 

Okay, here is the part where I usually have a witty friggin Dregs entry defending my obscene habits, convincing you to come to a show, or share a story we’ve alluded to onstage. NONE OF THAT TODAY. I just started grad school, and I was there all damn day yesterday, plus I’m working on another show at the moment and I started this project that I needed to finish. So that’s what I’m going to post about. You lucky, lucky people, you. The assignment parameters were to show events, institutions, and people who influenced your education both good and bad […]

My dirty secret; Mascara Anonymous 

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to make up. And not just any- specifically mascara. Okay, here’s how it went down. My mother started putting make up on me when I was about six for fancy family photos. Not even kidding. It was usually blush, lip gloss, … and my old dear friend, mascara.   Once the Regan recession hit us hard, we couldn’t afford fancy studio quality photos, so my mother took to doing her own. She again appointed herself chief makeup artist. (I think my sisters may hunt me down and kill me after this […]

Tim and Marc, sitting in a tree…. 

You know how the rest of that nursery rhyme goes. But do we really know how it started? How did my boyfriend and bandmate begin their bromance? I am unsure, but lets retrace some of the clues I’ve gathered and see if we can make sense from all of this. The Dregs take part in the Siouxland Renaissance Festival every summer. We usually carpool because it makes a long drive entertaining and then we hold each other accountable. In a video I recorded, we were momentarily stopped by a hail storm. Tim calls out to Marc in defiance of the […]

Wait For It 

Hello again Droopies. I warned you that I was inspired from my last post for another blog entirely. Well here it is. My last name was altered from Zupan to Zupon by my grandfather who was tired of the mispronunciation of the long ‘a’. Zupan can be traced back to Slovenia. You can check out this wikipedia article detailing some of the more famous Zupans. Zupan is also the name of an important public position; someone in charge of a district. You know what that means? I’m from Slavic royalty, BITCHES. That’s right. Best start your grovelling now. Żupan is also […]

Six People to Avoid When Forming a Band 

Social media is the best. I get exposed to all kinds of things (sometimes literally) that I otherwise would not have stumbled upon. Take for instance this article by Drew Ailes from St. Louis’ own Riverfront Times. It’s about the six people to avoid… when forming a band. Ahh, six members in this band. Six people to avoid. GET IT? IT’S LIKE I AM SAYING TO AVOID OUR BAND MEMBERS! This could not be more perfect if it tried. While not exactly detailing the members of The Dregs, it’s an interesting read. Here is some snobbery for you from an […]

all that glitters is not gold- it’s Dregs? 

Let the count down begin until the NYE Four Pints Shy and Dregs show! It will be held at Pepitos Parkway Theater, and we’re super excited! Well I don’ know about the rest of those bitches, but I am! I love NYE because it’s the best reason to break out all of the GLITTER!! And you know how festies love that shit! I am planning on adding a couple touches to my ensemble for the special night! A dreg all dressed up, you ask? IT HAPPENS. Maybe Tim will let me put some in his hair? Help peer-pressure me into […]

¡Infeliz Navidad! 

Molly here. It is a Dregs tradition to sing Feliz Navidad and screw with the lead. I inherited the song from Angelina, and since then I’ve had the following happen to me: Had the boys fondle me Been toilet papered Tim’s junk near me (ew) Underwear and a camel puppet up in my mix Been flashed by a ‘Santa Crotch’ Needless to say, when we were showing our tentative new band manager Katie our this song during rehearsal on Monday and she said she had ideas… I cringed a bit. I have no idea what I am in for, so […]
