Yea, I haven't posted anything besides band stuff in a while, looks like late august or so. Im bored on a friday night, so ill fill this in a bit.
Well, we had a show tonight, at the crypt in Everett, but i didnt see us in the listing online, nor on any of the other bands show listings. Sean and I figured someone probably fucked up and didnt put us on, so rather than drive all the way out for nothing, we just decided not to go. Last night we played at the compound out in fitchburg, it was an ok place, the sound guy was kind of a dickhead. He got all disturbed when sean asked if they could play Cypress Hill while we set up, and wouldnt do it.The show didnt go too bad, but i did notice, once again, we had the best crowd responce and the most people cheering us, maybe some day it will all add up and we can get the fuck out of this shithole state.
I worked down the Cape a bunch last week, it kinda sucks cause i have to stay down there while i do it, since its a 2 hours drive each way. Theres nothing like working 10 hour days and then not even having anyone around when youd like some interaction. Hey, it pays the bills, so i guess its better than not having any work at all.
We played the Apocalypse Lounge in NYC last weekend. Interesting place, a lil artsy, hole in the wall bar. The area we played in was like a basement, but i guess we've gotten used to that now. We got a really good responce and sold $100 buck or so worth of merch, so that was pretty bad ass. It was raining the whole time, so i was my usual miserable self, just wetter. I wish it hadnt been raining because i would like to have ventured around the city a bit the next day, but o well, back home, to work.
Im looking to buy a venue for live shows somewhere in providence in the near future, but shit, that stuff is expensive. Im thinking if i make a juice bar/venue then we might be able to pull it off. I wanna do it all by the book so they have no reason to shut it down. Providence is dying, and thats my favorite music scene so its killing me, im determined to do something about it. We even spoke to some people at relapse and they said they basically skip over providence now, and melt it with boston, lame. Its sad too say, that when Anne left, things started falling apart, i never realised how much influence she actually had in this area, but i miss talking to her on a personal level anyway, she was always awsome too me.
My brother is staying in florida now, which kinda bums me out, i miss the little bastard. He and i were supposed to find a place too live soon, but now obviously things changed. I hope everything works out for him, he deserves it, he busts his ass for that shit. He's around for the next couple days, maybe we can have time to chill for a bit.
im bored, but i dont feel like pointing anything else out at this time.
