2 months….that was 2 months too long without playing a live show. Let’s not do that again for awhile. It felt so good to get back on the road and play some shows in PA at the Millennium Music Conference 16 and Pittsburgh.
Prima donna Manhart flew and caught a hockey game in NYC while the rest of us (including our road companion Rob Tuli) left late Thursday night for a long drive. Pete repped Molehill during the afternoon at all the sessions at MMC16 and saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones. The Venue on Friday was definitely not set up for a rock show (flickering lights while the first band is playing is never a good sign)…nevertheless, the MMC crowd is always a great one and Friday was no exception. After 2 months of no live shows it takes a little time to shake off a little rust (this was also the first live performance of our new song ‘No Reprieve.’). The show went well enough that Pete got his mug on the 2nd page of the Harrisburg Patriot the next morning.
Our friends Gold Streets from Brooklyn followed us and killed it per usual. Definitely looking forward to a NYC show with them!
Italian beef and homemade mac and cheese are rare finds on the road…..fortunately we have some great friends in Pittsburgh that always make us feel at home….
We all had a nice pre-show warm up Rocksmith….if you’ve never played Rocksmith, check it out, pretty cool!
The show at Club Cafe in the Southside of Pittsburgh is one of the nicest clubs we play and Saturday’s show was definitely the best show we’ve had in Pittsburgh. Special thanks to Casino Bulldogs and The Long Time Darlings for rocking as well. Brett Staggs from LTD’s definitely had the best custom Jean Jacket we have seen in a long time…check out their video for “Downtown Sugar” ….Seriously, a great vibe was in the club on Saturday and we can’t wait to go back Pittsburgh!
Devin woke up at 3:45am (1 hour after going to bed) and flew back to Chicago for 2 performances on Sunday morning. What a beast! The rest of us ate at the famous Dor-Stop Diner. Classic, heart stopping, PA cuisine….afterwards, a quick stop for some Yuengling and it was back to Chicago.
