Hey everyone. We've been out and playing lately. That's kind of the idea when you're in a band. You play, talk to people, and hope the audience liked you well enough to buy a CD or tshirt.
Thursday we played at The Liquid Cellar with Fellsmere and Worth Fighting For. It was definitely a good time. The crowd was a bit sparse since it was a weeknight, but surprisingly enough more and more people came in as the night went on. We saw some old faces and met some new faces. All the bands were great and hopefully the benefit made some good money for their charity.
Last night we got to play a really good show. UCF's Alpha Tau Omega fraternity hosted a benefit show and constructed a huge stage on their front lawn. Everything was loud and big. Again, we played with some great acts and there was music of all different genres which I always like. We started off the night to a pretty good sized crowd. We rocked out for a half hour in the cold. Since it was dark, and there were lights in our eyes, I couldn't see the crowd, so it was kind of like playing to a big black wall. I thought we had a lot of energy. The audience seemed to like it, but we didn't get a whole lot of feedback. Thanks to those who did stop me to say you enjoyed our performance. You made my day.
Gym Class Heroes headlined the event and were utterly spectacular. They had an amazing stage presence and played for over an hour. If they ever come through your town, I highly suggest that you do everything that you can to check them out. You won't be disappointed.
While walking around the crowd, a fellow from the UCF newspaper grabbed me for an interview, so I guess watch for that if you're a student there. We also met some folks from the local radio station Real Rock who really liked our performance and walked away with a few copies of our disc, so maybe listen up for that in the future.
In just a few hours we'll be at the Haven for night #3. Should be a good one. I really wish I didn't have to work in the morning, but I intend to have a good time regardless. We're playing second after From Adam to Adam. Tough act to follow.
Hopefully we'll see some of you there.
We're in the process of confirming some shows for December, and as it stands now, we'll hopefully be hitting Daytona Beach a couple times and could possibly be playing a really cool local show about halfway through the month. We'll keep you posted.
