We want to thank everyone who made it to Bushwackers Saloon last night. Our Red Cross fundraiser was a big success – with the money at the door, and the extra donations made by fans we earned $255 to donate to the Japanese tsunami relief efforts.
We’d especially like to thank A Thief’s Plot and C4x for participating and donating their money also. It’s always great playing with C4x. They play the kind of music that gets played on Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show.
Last night was the first show for the up-and-coming A Thief’s Plot. Their donation should make for some good rock karma. When I heard it was their first show, I told a few people they were noobs to the scene. When they started playing, I took it back, figuring I must’ve been mistaken. They were pretty good, and it was indeed their first show. They told me they rehearsed every night last week in preparation for the gig. They’re a bunch of cool guys, and we hope to play with them again.
We gotta give a shout out to Amish Combat who punked up the joint with a four-song set between A Thief’s Plot and SFoM. “There’s a supermoon tonight… and we’re gonna kill it.” Amish Combat is another musical project featuring SFoM’s own Matty Moore on drums.
Finally, a shout out to Tricia Smith for constructing the Red Cross donation box and making it look like one of those medipacks from Tomb Raider. Some highlights from the night:
- We raised some money to help people in dire need.
- Amish Combat… nuff said.
- A Thief’s Plot hit the ground running with their first show.
- C4x sounded great.
- Some new faces got a chance to check us out.
- Big, enthusiastic crowd.
- Bushwackers beer is actually pretty good. It’s a brown ale or something. Not sure where it comes from…
- People ask about “Tell Me” every time we play it.
- We nailed “The Snake Song.”
- We got a couple more SFoM t-shirts out there.
Thanks again to everyone in attendance. Every little bit helps, and it means a lot to us that you came out and supported our effort to help the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
