F-BONY: First Blog of New Year.
Well…72 hours ago, we were wondering what the hell we were going to do. Our New Year’s Eve gig got cancelled and for lack of a better word, we felt as if we were F-U-C-T. However, this band is like a fly that won’t go away. We knew we had to get the show on the road and send some of that Robert Newport, I might want to show you my hairy bare chest, vibe out for the big night!
Let’s bring you up to speed…for those of you following along at home. New Year’s Even gig got cancelled. We tracked down some amazingly fine people that were so kind and added us to the lineup for the Nuvo, Z99.5 & Stella Artois Masquerade Ball. We want to thank, sincerely and from the bottom of our hearts, Danielle Beck, Ricky Lee Potts and My Yellow Rickshaw for respectively adding us to the lineup, getting us in touch with the right folks and bending over backwards to let us spread a little NYE cheer BoTo style. Seriously – it was so incredibly refreshing to wind down the year playing a show and doing it with so many people that couldn’t have been any nicer to us. Thank you all…we hope our paths cross again sooner rather than later.
Ok, so the gig…you want to know what that was like? Ok…We played about 90 minutes of some hot and nasty rock and roll. Some originals that went over great like “One Foot Out the Door” which is on the new disc. We also had a blast playing some of our old favorites a gyrating mob of party-goers: “Billie Jean”, “Jenny/867-5309”, “Firework”, “Summer of 69” just to name a few. Indy, you couldn’t have been any kinder to us. Special thanks also go out to Paul Poteet from Z99.5 for some fabulous props. If you haven’t had a chance to see My Yellow Rickshaw, we recommend them. They’re seriously a blast.
All right – a couple of reminders. Only 12 days left until the Vogue Show! Remember this little gem? Watch it, love it, and get your tickets quick! Shoot us an email and we can get them to you to save you on service charges or if you’re into the whole convenience thing (and who isn’t now-a-days with the interweb and all) you can get them at Ticketmaster.
P.S. Get on board – this train is rolling bee-yatch!
