Day #1: Success

Email List (adreesses removed)

Hello All,

McGrew here. Writing you from the road. I am sitting in a motel in Roanoke, VA. Our room…smells. (To be expected when packed in a room with 5 other dudes.)

Yesterday, we played our first road date of the tour in Blacksburg, VA at Awful Arthur’s. We played to a small but enthusiastic house. We played one set, Julius C played one set, and then both bands got together for a get up, shake down funk medley. I’ve posted pictures below.

Things learned so far on the road:

Mike Tuccillo of Julius C is a circus game professional and won us 4 turnovers (apple and cherry) at Arby’s.

Ace of Bass hit single “I Saw the Sign” is a tough song over which to sing “Wide Eyes”.

Woodchucks are curious and very brave when scoping out the AR mobile (in motion).

Old friend from high school Jay Berenzweig lives in Blacksburg, and happened upon our show by complete accident. Small world.

$3 Gas station burritos at 3am seem like great buys… at 3am. They are not.

P & L,
