Tower Tavern Gig – 29th August 2009

This was the gig that almost never happened (again). Originally scheduled to play the Luna Lounge on this date, the venue actually closed down and we were left stranded! So we frantically found a slot at Tower Tavern on the same evening. And Tower Tavern was the place where we had the previous gig cancelled. So it was all a bit shaky…

But the show sure went ahead come the 29th of August..and what a show!

For almost 2 years we have been playing a standard 30 minutes set that always has the same songs in pretty much the same order. Any new songs that have been added are generally fitted into that overall song order.

But this time we were cooking up a surprise 🙂

We completely changed the set order, no longer opening with the Terminator 2 theme. Not only that but we revived an old song after 2 years. “Society Made Me This Way” was dedicated to the demise of Big Brother. Yet another shocker was that we removed “Set Me Free” from the set entirely.

Although not a packed venue, the ones who were there had a real treat with some front row dancers for all our songs!

This gig was yet another testament to the Box surviving adverse conditions and still putting on a show, thanks to all those who made it there. The show must go on!
