Can you slow down, 2020?
So far in the new decade, we've almost gotten into World War 3, Trump's been impeached but not removed from office, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash, for years we've consistently had the warmest months in recorded history, and Washington looks like it's becoming ground zero for a new, potentially catastrophic virus. Time will tell, I guess.
Leading up to last week's show at Louie G's, I was definitely thinking about how we need a little bit of love injected into our world right now. Luckily, even if not on a large scale I was able to find that bit of love at the show.
Tom Esch kicked off the night doing 2-piece set with his friend on the drums. It was my first time hearing his music, but as people trickled through the doors, he drew them closer to the stage. Petey Normal's performances are always interesting, and his newly released music--Applesauce--was captivating to listen to. Being a solo performer with accompanying tracks can be hard to pull off, but he filled up that stage with personality and zaniness.
Third up was us. We played to many of our friends from the music scene as well as many new faces and again we had a guest performer. Bri Ashlee Little, formerly known for singing in The Morning After came up and co-sang, "Folie a Deux" and it became obvious from the start that people were missing her voice.
Watch Rome Burn closed out the night and they just keep getting better and better and better and better and better and better... and better.
A little after-party and a few drinks later, we were ready to retire for the night. Now, we're taking time away to work on recording our next release. We've said it before and we'll say it again, stay tuned...
