331 Club 12-19-15

It was a week ago today since we played our show at the 331 Club as part of Battlerat's EP release show. Since then it's been Christmas and I cleaned the house. Christmas was lovely as usual. Matt and I spent it at his mother's house with his family. Good food. Gifts exchanged. We played a game. Robbie Dog got some fun treats. Of course, Christmas Eve was spent with the annual eating of the tacos and viewing of National Lampoon's A Christmas Vacation.

Our show at 331 Club was the first show back as a band. It wasn't quite the full band as Laura was unable to join us, but Colleen rocked it and covered all the background vocal ground on her own. It was wonderful to play with the band again. Whenever I'm feeling down about music, it just takes a practice session with these folks to bring me back up. And playing a show with them is truly fantastic.


This was a lineup I was super excited to play with. All of these bands are stellar. We opened the show and Tungsten played second. I hadn't seen them before, but I'm familiar with the folks in the band. I really enjoyed their set and hope to play with them again someday.

Next up was Battlerat. It was their EP release show. This is another band that I've definitely fallen for over the past couple of month. You should check out their new EP, Spoils, here: https://battlerat.bandcamp.com/album/spoils

Rupert Angeleyes closed out the night. They are a super fun glam rock pop band. I've seen them a couple of times before and was thrilled to share a bill with them.

The place was packed nearly the entire evening. The sound was great. We debuted a new song! People seemed to be in good spirits.  It was a really fun night.

And Colleen brought homemade Oreos for the band and they were delicious!
