Great to be back!

Well, we got our first gig under our belt since our break and I could not have asked for a better night! It's ALWAYS great to get back to the ROXY to play and Friday, Aug 5 did not disappoint!

It was a great crowd from the start, and after we shook off the rust in the first set, it went pretty smoothly, I think most of us were a little nervous at first, trying to remember how the songs went! We played all our new songs and they were all very well received.

We saved "Aerials" by System of A Down for the second to last song of the night, and the response was incredible. Every single person we talked to raved about it, even though I thought there were a few fuckups along the way, which is to be expected the first time you play a new song in front of a live audience. It's way different than playing it during practice in the garage! Shimmer, Blitzkrieg Bop, Blister In The Sune and Be Yourself also went over very well, so the band was pretty pleased about it! Definitely inspires us to learn more new stuff.

The ROXY crowd, in my opinion, can't be beat! If you've never gone to this great club on the Northwest side across from Ingram Park Mall, then you need to get your ass over there! Tonight (Saturday, Aug. 6) we're over at the Firehouse Pub & Grill by Walzem and I-35 and I hope we can finally shake this place up a bit!

See ya soon!
