I think that the Mono Ensemble was a little disappointed that some of the crowd had left before the end of our set, but it didn't bother us too much. We were playing the late set and we played for about two hours, and people stayed for a lot of it and seemed to have fun. Sure, Crack had a somewhat bigger draw, but Crack played earlier, it was a much-hyped first show for Crack, and Crack only had to keep people entertained for 5 relatively short songs. Also, Crack's first gig had that kind of freak show appeal that's just difficult for more traditional bands to compete with (and by traditional, I mostly mean bands that actually know how to play their instruments). Overall, I thought things went well for both bands.
I would like to take a second to thank our audience. Thanks to D.K. for bringing the girls and wearing her cowboy hat. Thanks to Andy's sister for videoing us (I wanna see that tape). Thanks to Gary Meyer and the Letdowns for recording us and making flyers. Thanks to Lastovica for reminding us how much we sucked, despite the applause. Thanks to the cute nanny girl for being cute. And a nanny. Thanks to the Mono E crew for supporting us (as always). Thanks to the guy who requested Free Bird and really meant it (for reminding us why sometimes it's better just to stay home and play at the house). And thanks to the Carousel Lounge for letting us play. God bless the Carousel.
Well, we hope to gig again soon, and we hope to see lots of smiling faces there. I'll let everyone know. All kidding aside, we really do appreciate everyone who came out. Peace, love, dope.
