It was a bit weird playing in a large office space, especially when they wouldn't turn the overhead florescent lights off. "Kinda like playing a corporate retreat." I Joked. "Stay around after the show folks!" Jay added "We'll be doing trust exercises!"
And so the band played our first live show in, well, it's been a while. Despite not having played with Peter for several months I thought we sounded quite tight. Jay broke a guitar string towards the end which forced him to continue playing with a great deal of, uh, creativity, but all in all it went fine.
Artomatic draws a pretty diverse crowd and it was very interesting to see what types of people in the crowd responded to which types of music. I'm not a big fan of stereotypical grouping of people (being in an oppressed minority myself) but there did appeared to be some observable trends in last night's crowd:
Big thanks the Artomatic, Mac and his sound-guy, and all the folks that came out to see us. We'll be back at Artomatic tonight for our first ever Electronic set.
