Well the October 15th show in Lunenburg was a great time. We showed up on time, suprisingly, and got our stuff unloaded quickly as it was raining. The show had yet to start, and we were told it would be convenient if we could play first. That wasn't the impression we got beforehand, but we weren't too worried about it, but we realized this was Tim's last show with us and 3/4 of our friends weren't there yet, so we elected to play second as a compromise.|
Thanks, by the way, to everyone from Rainsford for your help in setting up the show, getting us in and organized, enjoying us, and helping us with levels. It seemed as though a few people didn't enjoy our comical amounts of feedback, but of course our usual fans did. If I had to estimate, I would say 70% of the people there were either mildly or severely liking us, about 20% were very confused, and roughly 10% were annoyed. There was also a couple of the usual kids who take themselves too seriously who didn't like Ross' dances or our videogame MIDI files we played.
Thanks to Elyse Leblanc (woo woo!) for getting me in touch with Rainsford. Thank you to EVERYBODY who came. Thank you to the bands who played, I would say all of them were pretty decent, Rainsford was especially on point (and yes I'm biased). I guess one of the bands made fun of us, but that's okay because we did some really really awesome dances that accentuated their musical stylings.
A few "one-time" tricks we pulled out of our pockets:
Ross pulled a toy gun during the set.
Tim Glover played bass for us, for the first and last time.
My good friend Berbelang of the soon-to-be-influential band Cheeseberger made a song featuring the memoirs of Raleigh Theodore Sakers, brilliant and psychotic sci-fi writer, so naturally I played that song from my laptop using my amplifier.
