    Thumbs up Belated (birthday) gig report

    W/usual ridiculous pics.



    Last Saturday was my birthday, so I played a show with my band, Crash Pad. We called it Krash Bash 2012, and billed it as my "25th Annual 29th Birthday" (since I turned 54). I got 2 of my fave local bands with old friends in them to play, and the house added a fourth.



    Here is the flyer:



    This is a college town and the kids are now gone for summer already, so it was just a small crowd of friends.. It was good fun though.

    Here is the openers, the Holy Sh!ts:



    Here's my friends Half-Crocked, formerly known as Half-Cocked (note boy-grrl ratio), with my friends Deb and Cindy:



    Unfortunately I didn't get any shots of closers the Gris Gris Boys, with my friend Rob singing and playing guitar. This is them though, I believe playing the same club on a different night:



    This is us, mucho mas fotos later.



    As usual, any and all questions answered, and your gibes re my poseritude encouraged.

    Thanks, yes we had a great time.

    I pretty much always use the Sovtek with Crash Pad. Gain dimed, volume pedal, no effects. Although with the Casino's wiring still being effed (only control that worked is master vol) I added an EQ pedal for leads.

    Here's some instagram'd pics by the the rhythm player's gf:









    Irony is ironic: giving credit where it's due, only to have instagram fuzz them out:

    Some pics by Tim our "record company A&R guy" (translate: entire record company, actually, or: guy who's rather incredibly sunk $5K into the band's album):

    Sharp eyes!

    Our regular was outta town for the weekend.

    This guy played in a side band w/the bassist and I, so he was the perfect candidate for a sit-in, already being used to our playing (albeit with different material in a different genre). Plus, he had a great time, so now we have a designated hitter for future shows.

    Win-win!

    Yesterday afternoon/eve I got bogged down in a rush project at work, couldn't get to the last of the pics (egad more?). My 15-year-old took these, they have some of the more ridiculous you may've come to expect:











    I think this was taken after I walked out of the club during the final solo and played standing out on the sidewalk outside (note audience reaction by my friends Deb and English):



    And of course:



    There, done!
