Last night Cool Blue Halo played in Charlottetown with Madhat and
Strawberry. It was a great show...the crowd was small but
appreciative and things ran pretty smoothly considering CBH missed
their ferry and got to the barn like a 1/2 hour before their set.
Strawberry played a really good, tight set. The sound was AMAZING!
For those of you that went to the no cases at the barn, this was like
the polar opposite. Their 7" is theoretically going to be released
in 2 or 3 weeks, it has 2 tracks off of their upcoming album....
Scott is singing a lot more with Strawberry now -- the band used to
be totally fronted by Deirdre, but he is bringing a lot of the Good
Guy Eddie stuff into this band...it sounds great. They're the shit =)
Madhat played a wicked set too...they played a few of the old songs
from _Freak_ and some of the new _Hardhitters_ stuff including the
soon to be released on video "the ride"...it's a great single...
Cool Blue Halo's set was really really amazing. Their live version
of 'Sweetie Said' was a huge hit with all the folks that were
there...they, too, played some of the older stuff and their new
single 'Too Much Kathleen'. they just wrapped the video on Friday
night, and from what it sounds like, it should be a damn good one.
It's directed by the same guy that did 'Sweetie Said' so who knows
what the hell it will look like when it's done...
Here's the highlight of the evening: the guys from Cool Blue Halo
come in at like 11:00 and Jason come up the stairs with is bass in
one hand and merch in the other and then he says Hi and waves
and boom, he's on the ground....yes, that's right, he fell down the
stairs....well, actually up the stairs....it took him a few minutes
to get up again, but he regained composure quickly =)
The show was great...and it looks like all the kids from Ch'town that
have been kept out of our shows for the past 4 months are going to
show up in full force for the Little Orton Hoggett show on the 26th
and the Eric's Trip/Orange Glass show on the 27th.
what a weekend.
