Reviewing Last Week's Shows

First off I would like to thank everyone who made the back-to-back shows last week possible. We will start with Thursday's show at the Launchpad in Albuquerque. Joe Anderson, Roman Barham and the entire Launchpad staff deserve a ton of credit for what they do here in our home town. Other venues come and go, but the Launchpad remains a staple in the music scene for a great reason. Those guys are responsible for keeping the local music scene alive. So if you haven't been to the Launchpad or any of Joe's other venues in Albuquerque, you need to do yourself a favor and check them out. The Historic Sunshine Theater, Low Spirits and the Moonlight Lounge along with Launchpad, combine to make up for the vast majority of the local music shows in the Metro Area. They provide local bands with tremendous opportunities to gain exposure that otherwise would never be afforded to them. Plus the drinks are actually affordable... Friday night, we played the Underground at Evangelo's in Santa Fe, NM. Augustine Ortiz and myself organized this event and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. If you don't know Augustine, you should get to know him because he handle's 90% of the bookings in Santa Fe and happens to be one hell of a sound engineer with his own studio, in a addition to Kronos Creative, his booking and promotions company. Thank you Augustine. We understand Evangelo's is a small venue. It's not much to look at and when I stand on my toes, the top of my head hits the ceiling. It maybe holds 60-70 people tops. But WOW, talk about quality over quantity. The energy in the room that night was electric. I wish I had some decent pics to post from that show because it was incredible. Everyone was so stoked about what happened that night, that we've decided to definitely do it again. Same venue, same lineup, same price. It's gonna be killer. We will announce the show in due time, so you can catch it if you missed it the first time around. And bring friends!! We would like to thank all the bands that jammed these two shows with us. Carrion Kind. Savage Wisdom, Fields of Elysiium, Blinddryve, Letters from The Fire and Stitched Up Heart. We couldn't be more grateful or feel more privileged to share the stage with such talented and dedicated musicians. We owe our friend, Joshua Franks, for jamming these shows with us. Thank you, Josh. He filled in for our bassist, Paul Williams, who was unable to make these shows because he had to be in Wisconsin for a family matter. We are happy to report that it appears everything is going to be ok for Paul and his family - please send all the positive vibes you can their way. You also need to check out Josh's main band, A Malicious Plague. Talk about brutal. They're everything you're looking for in a death band - technical proficiency, complex and entertaining song structures and brutal vocals. If you're a fan of death metal, I challenge you not to like them. We have some big announcements to make SOON and hope you stay tuned... \m/ \m/
