Ned Kelly’s last night… I don’t know if we’ve ever gotten so much help with our sound. We even had a guy run up and fix Matty’s drum kit when his ride cymbal cocked forward and landed on his snare during “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” at the beginning of the first set. “Turn up the bass… turn up the drummer’s mic… turn up the vocals… more guitar…” at least everyone was telling us to turn it up.
By the end of the night, with hundreds of bright-ass LEDs flashing, and the decibels in the 80s or 90s, we turned that Irish/Australian pub into the Rocky Mountain outpost of American Rock and Roll. What we laid down was picked up by the Ned’s revelers. It’s always an ego boost playing there. Littleton might be the springboard for the next great American rock and roll scene. Or maybe it’ll be Arvada.
- All the rockers and rollers in attendence
- The lights were blinding!
- The folks who signed up for our email list
- The crowd liked “Damn Shame”
- “Picture Show” sounded like a punk-rock Frankenstein’s monster
- The resurrection of the acoustic set
We’re going to book a couple more shows for 2011, we’ve got new music to record, and we’re planning a tour of the Midwest in 2012. Stay tuned!
