While the gig before at the exact venue was a miracle of sheer organisation, this one very nearly didn’t happen either!
In fact an hour after we had played on set, the venue was shut down for playing music too loud. This time the license was not renewed and the landlord had to stop the last band from going on stage. We were speechless as the lights went out and the last band went home…without going on stage!
As for those who were there, they enjoyed a tighter and more consolidated set than the last gig. “Society Made Me This Way” was played for the second time now and we pulled off a smashing outro with blending the “Terminator 2” theme and “The Score” intro. We were so determined to get this transition right after the last gig where it was rusty and messy, and boy we nailed it this time, BIG.
This gig was very different too in terms of how we felt, we were pumped from the excitement of our SxSW application and we were visiting our producer the following day. This showed so well in our set. We were also extremely lucky to have a photographer friend who took some great black and white shots of the band on the night.
We also had some new sign ups for our fan mailing list, which is great news as we slowly but surely build our mailing list.
