The TIP van has a blown engine control module and will require $500 to fix. Considering we only paid $750 for the van when we bought it on eBay, this is an outrageous sum of money. Stand by for more updates as our mechanic dives deeper into this rat’s nest.
We had a blast last night rocking with you fine people. The show was a huge success. We had all the key ingredients: flat beer, surly bartenders, great tunes, a leaking stained roof and an unusable ladies bathroom.
Thanks for coming out and helping us class up the place.
Is that it’s a piece of junk that doesn’t run when the temperature drops below 40 degrees. On the other hand, elementary school kids love that thing and I’m not really sure why.
If anyone knows a good mechanic in Hudson County, drop us an email.
The delicate ballet of Just the Tip vs Desmond’s management will resume this Friday night, as we take the 5ft x 5ft stage for the first time since April. I’m predicting Chad will verbally assault the bartender at least once by 9:45, but by 12:30 they’ll be shoulder to shoulder singing “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” over a non-comped shot of Jameson’s. Things always get wild at Desmond’s so don’t miss out.
Check out an old Desmond’s video here.

Before he was Just the Tip’s drummer, Fighty was a barfly at our very own Desmond’s Tavern. Actually, that’s how we found him.
