But before I get to the birthday stuff... The Pot Belly on Saturday was a rollicking good time! Ben was an awesome host and everyone seemed to have a good vibe going. We heard a massive cheer go up while we were playing and for 2 seconds we thought people were actually listening. Turns out two chicks playing tonsil hockey up the back of the pub trump three weird looking dudes on stage any day, as well they should.
Cheers to Nick for making us all play the Fat Controller set. It was great fun! I still had a ball listening to you even though all my pesky wrong notes kept drowning you out.
Big thanks to The Bastard Sons of Liberty for punking the place right up until close. Talk about pro! The last note rung out -to the second- as last drinks turned to no more drinks. Well done boys!
Now, back to the birthday stuff. The Phoenix is all all growed up now so they are throwing a HUGE week long party. We are there on the 26th at 7pm before ducking off to The Basement to play at nine. Mental! But this Thursday the 24th there is also a little band called The Way Hip Antelopes playing alongside Pete and Fiete. I used to watch these guys play 10 years ago if not more. It will be like going back in time but with mobile phones! How cool is that?
