    Here's something I've somehow put together since being in Japan. Godzilla Snacks. A 4 foot chick on bass and a tall foreign dude on guitar. Another Japanese dude on drums.

    Cool deal on Saturday.
    We ripped it up and the crowd loved us.

    By the end of the night we were shutting down. Guy comes up and throws $100.00 down.
    Says "play two more songs for this"?
    For $100.00? Dude I'll play whatever you want.
    So we do it, shut down........guy comes up again.
    Another $100.00.......:shock:

    Four times in total........it was like $100.00 tip for each band member.
    Awesome.

    Sometimes you play to crickets.
    Sometimes you tear the house down.

    Our album is completed and being sent out for duplication as I type this. We have posted two new tracks.

    Your Last Day

    Your Last Day | The Give Take

    Wait A Minute

    Wait A Minute | The Give Take

    Your Last Day is the first song we wrote as a band in January of 2013. I still love the song and consider it one of my favorites. Let me know what you think!

    We officially have our album in hand!

    This week was pretty big for use. On Tuesday we opened up for Foxy Shazam on the first night of their tour. Great turn out, great feedback, and some good merch sales. We certainly earned a few new fans at that one.

    Wednesday our limited print hand numbered cd's arrived. They are currently for sale for $6 a piece. Also, that night we opened for Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman at a tiny club in Lancaster PA. It was a good crowd and a really cool night. Again, new fans, good feedback, and some more merch sales. Next up is a string of shows in Youngstown Ohio, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and York PA.

    The May 16th gig.
    Interesting.
    Quite a few 1%'ers including some HA's around.
    Made my drummer VERY, VERY nervous........:laugh2:
    They had a kiosk set up beside the stage............selling phucking T-Shirts.
    Made my chuckle.

    It was pretty cold and my hands went numb.
    You know.......the kind of cold that keeps your beer ice cold.

    Was glad when that set finished up!!

    LOTS of available females......or so it seemed BUT I felt the situation to be a tad dangerous so I passed on that.

    June 13th gig.
    Another festival.....one set.
    AWESOME......OFF THE FREAKING CHARTS.
    We had the 11:30pm spot (which meant we went on at 12:00...of course) and the crowd looked cold and subdued.
    By the end of it the bouncers and sound guys were having to kick the dancers off of the stage.....numerous times.

    Man we killed it!!!

    We were the 2nd last band but the crowd wouldn't let us get off the stage.
    HUGE swells of cheering & applause & calls for more.

    When we were done we got a bunch of gig requests and additional work.
    Very cool.

    NEXT UP
    PRIVATE GIG ON JULY 12TH
    No clue who or what or where.
    Booked by the bass player.

    Actually I think we have some work out of town before July 12th (drummed up from the last gig) but not sure yet.

    On a down note, a bar that we had booked for one gig every month for the rest of the year changed their format to live jams through the weekend so our bookings got cancelled. Shame.

    Peace
    :)
