Fun gig last night!

Played the Derby in Strathroy last night.

More fun than usual this time.

By about 11:30 the place was packed with co-workers of mine just getting off shift. A few of them had been off earlier in the day and were already quite primed and rowdy when they got there.

Part way through the 2nd set, a friend from work came stumbling near the stage and I knew he was up to something. He threw a pair of underware at me! They wound up swinging from the neck of my bass. Nice ones too - size XXXL grannie panties with "I Love You James" in black marker on them. Everyone from work loved the band. I noticed a few camera flashes going off as well - I guess a number of them want to prove their boss can have some fun and cut loose a bit.

As I was setting up a little earlier in the night, a fine gentleman came up to me and introduced himself as Mark, aka "Lowtones". That was pretty cool to meet a fellow forumite and talk shop over a couple beers. :food-smiley-004: He stayed for most of the first set and said our mix sounded pretty good which is always one of my concerns.

I guess you didn't like it well enough to stay until 3:00am and help me tear down though eh Mark? :tongue:

Next time give us a little notice and I'll drag Dave along. I tried to get hold of him last night but he was probably already in bed as it was after eight on a Friday evening.
Actually I was at the Red Hot weekend thing with Orchestra London. Wasn't bad but I'm sure I'd have preferred James.
(I was still in bed by 11:00) :food-smiley-004:

I wish more bars would start running the Saturday matinee thing, gotta be good for them if the Richmond is any indication.

The only downside to the evening was that James showed me his new Bass and now I'm gassing for a 6 string.
I'll never understand that whole G.A.S. thing. :banana:

James, did you get your band problems sorted out? I think you were having drummer problems weren't you? (join the club btw).
