BAAM Fest Weekend.

(gum creek killers)

It was a great weekend for great local music.  The BAAM fest was a huge success from what I could tell.  All of the venues were packed, the bands were fantastic, and the mood was exciting.  We started the weekend off by seeing Duquette, Janet, Brad, Chip, David, and Van play a short set as the "Gum Creek Killers" Friday at Bottletree at 8:30.

After a snack at Makario's we headed over to Metro Bistro to see Teen Getaway rock at 11:00.  These guys are so fantastic.

Saturday night was the Skybucket Records showcase at Rogue Tavern.  We got there just as Delicate Cutters were breaking down their equipment.  I'm kicking myself for not getting there sooner.  13ghosts and Through the Sparks then played rocking sets.  The show of the night though was Vulture of my favorite bands.  They brought some serious rock to the stage with an amazing set.  The crowd was amazing too which made watching them all the more fun.  We then grabbed some Al's afterwards with Les and Roni to top off a great night.

Last night was a great night at WorkplayDuquette Johnston and the Rebel Kings played at 7:15 and had a fantastic set.  Jason and I played with Sunny So Brite which followed at 8:30. The crowd was amazing and was a great way to end BAAM fest.  We hit the Waffle House afterwards for some good grub before going home to watch True Blood.

Thanks BAAM Fest for a fun weekend!

The Nick Show

is it bad that i'm still recovering from thursday night's show at the nickimaginary planes opened the show with a great set and eux autres were awesome!  i have to say that this was probably the funnest show we've played so far.  there's something about the nick that makes you want to play really loud dirty rock.  mission accomplished.  i think jason playing the les paul made it even louder and dirtier.

A day in Athens

Jax wondering how long before she can open that stack of records from Wuxtry

James perplexed over the decision of having tater tots, fries, or onion rings at Clocked

We had a great time yesterday in Athens. We rolled into little kings at 1pm and proceeded to have a great time listening to bands and rockin' faces off. We met some wonderful people and bands, ate a REALLY good burger at Clocked and took our time meandering back to Alabama via a plate of Swedish meatballs! Kind of moving slow today but looking forward to another night of music with Eux Autres and Imaginary Planes!
Thanks to Mike in Athens who helped us out and helped make a great festival
