I had a great time at SIU Carbondale last night - what a cool little city! Real nice folks, too; can't wait to go back and play again in C-Dale. Had a blast walking around the square, and we especially enjoyed ABC Liquor (drive-thrus, dudes) and Long Branch Cafe. We even met a music shop owner who knows our guitar technician extraordinaire, Dave Anderson! What're the odds?!
This Saturday (March 30) will be the big show we've been looking forward to for months: I'll be opening for Great Isaac (their singer/guitarist is Steve, my man-partner and T2 drummer). This will be their first show since the tragic loss of their drummer, Casey Kell last September. I've had the privilege of sitting in on a couple practices to hear their new songs, and HOLY SHIT. You should really come to the show, guys. Langen Neubacher & The Defeated County and The Union Electric will be playing as well; both are phenomenal STL bands. There's a $5 cover for the show, but all of it goes to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, so it's worth it. And if you haven't been to Plush (in mid-town STL), you're missing out on some delicious sweet chili sauce and the best little meatloaf cupcakes the Midwest has to offer.
Thursday, April 4 will be a great show, too: the monthly mash-up at Venice Cafe, of course! This time it's me (solo), Old Capital Square Dance Club (a misnomer, perhaps - a surprising lack of square dances, actually. Still awesome, though), and Lawrence & The Lion (my first time seeing them live - can't wait!).
You can find all of these fine STL bands I've mentioned on Facebook, by the way. And you should!
I'll post some C-dale photos for you folks - there's some good stuff. Speaking of Facebook, there's a post on the Suzie Cue FB page from C-dale re: sitting on Katy Perry's face. You should definitely go check that and the accompanying photo out.
Thanks for reading; stay in touch, folks!
