So, I’m in a band again. We’ve only been jamming for a short while now, but the chaos is already well underway. We decided to play an open stage night before we were ready, just because we could. I dig this momentum/vibe. Plus, I got to break out the FlipOut guitar for its first show! I didn’t realize how much I miss gigging out. It’s addictive.
As far as a style, it’s still taking shape… but right now it’s stripped down punk/rock/pop, and it’s sloppy. We’ll have some covers, some originals, whatever we feel like as time goes on, I guess. Most importantly, we’re having fun. If you’ve seen a handful of local ‘Burgh bands in the past 10 years, chances are you’ll recognize all the players here.

To see what you missed, here’s almost our entire 3-song set thanks to Bethany. Watch your speakers… her camera didn’t like our volume, I guess.
And, there are a few photos (thanks again to Bethany)…
I also have to say that I also learned that the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville is awesome. It’s a great room, it has a menu devoid of shellfish, and the crowd was a nice mellow mix form all walks of life. While I’m at it, host band Craig King & CBG Connection were awesome dudes. They were very welcoming, and they rocked the place out with some funk/blues/rock/jazz insanity.
