Insanity – we had like 150 people at our first show, and there was no audience attrition. Everyone stayed for the whole set. We had the best time, and I can’t wait to edit the video & put it up. Till then, we’ve got some photos.
As you can see, the venue, Daydream Republic, is a rough warehouse that’s been converted to an art space. It’s a great setting, and we’re really grateful to have been booked for the holiday party. Jacob Safari DJed after us and played the Curb Your Enthusiasm right after our last song. Santa came around, pouring tequila to the guests.
I finally got to eat after the show. Had French toast and chocolate chip pancakes from the Buttermilk Truck. I thought it all tasted good, but damn, I was really hungry. Couldn’t truly judge.
Big thanks to everyone who came to support us and all the people who worked hard to make the event such a success. Vivien Killilea runs Daydream and constantly added more fun stuff to the evening, plus made it all go smoothly and promoted the hell out of it. My brother Dan coached us a couple of weeks before and helped us refine the sound. It really came together thanks to him. Danielle Parsons filmed everything – and she’s a director, so she knows what she’s doing – AND she bought sparklers for the last song. I thought we were years away from having fireworks at a show. That was such an amazing surprise. Photographer Mats Holmberg shot the whole thing. I was told that my friend dismissed the writing room at The Simpsons to come see us. Another friend came straight from the airport. People came from Orange County. I hope I’m not leaving out too many important details.
What a night. Thanks!!!!!
