I always forget we have this blog. With Facebook making new rules (that we don’t understand) about who sees our posts and who doesn’t, it might be the right time to start updating here. I’ll try to get on here and post dates for upcoming shows and stuff, so if anyone actually reads this, comment and let us know so we have incentive to continue.
Last week, we had the pleasure of playing the Worthen Attic in Lowell again. We set up this show pretty last minute for a tour coming through and got to play with Dee Cracks and Spruce Bringsteen (check them out if you haven’t!). We also had the pleasure of playing with our local friends Mr. Fahrenheit and Borderlines from Portland, ME (check them out too!). They’re excellent guys and a great band that we’ve been dying to play a show with.
Anyways, the reason I bring this up is because everyone was really cool that night. We paid to rent out the venue and most of the people who showed up were friends of ours. We pretty much told everyone “look we feel bad charging you to get in because we know you, but if you’d like to pay, we did rent this place out and would like to give the touring bands some cash if possible.” Everyone ended up paying. We broke even and were able to give the touring bands a small amount for gas. On top of this, everyone was very positive. Nobody was acting too cool or tough or anything and that’s always pleasant and surprising. So thank you to anyone who showed up and threw down a few dollars.
This past Friday, we played out in Fitchburg at this place called the Fitchburg Artistree with All Day Baby, SuperStoker, and Mr. Fahrenheit. It’s a really cool student run art space that has all ages shows. Because of this we went down the street to a Chinese food restaurant to have a few drinks before the show started. Jeff and I ended up talking to this guy at the bar and he showed up very drunk at the Artistree hours later during our set. After dancing around for a bit, he jumped up on stage and forced us to cover the song “My Girl”. Check out the video here courtesy of our friend Tom:
