After leaving NYC we had a stretch back at our boring day jobs. Ben is a sky diving instructor. Charles is a bear wrestler. Luke is a trader of fine spices, silk and Seventh Heaven memorabilia and John is a cat burglar (he steals peoples cats.) By the time Friday rolled around we were itching to play some music. We decided on a camouflage theme for the Grumpy’s show. You’re welcome, Wal-Mart. Our friends Eight Feet Tall came down from Boston to open up the show and they absolutely killed it. They are a mob of guitars, horns and deep grooves, fronted by a monster of an MC. It’s always a good thing to have tight band open up for you because it elevates the entire evening and puts a fire under your ass. We came out playing ‘Nights Like This.’ The song was a reminder that summer is coming, which is awesome, but in all honesty our local shows this winter have been as good as any. We will miss having the town to ourselves a little. On the flip side we can go outside and swim, fair enough. The energy was high. Love was in the air. It was beautiful. Check out a video Brian Tarcy from capecodwave.com shot of us playing ‘Down For The Count.’ http://youtu.be/M4F-GG_JKfc
Tonight we are off to our favorite club in Boston, Church. It is an intimate room with great sound. We will be opening up for Eight Feet Tall. The Alchemystics are headlining the show. They are a Western, MA reggae institution. We are excited to see them. This is the last night of our tour, and then we hole up in the studio for a bit and get ready for another hot summer. Tonight we dance.
