LAMMIES!

LAMMIES!

The Party! Party! Party! Tour quickly went from an idea we bounced around jokingly to a reality. It all sort of hit me when the laminates arrived.

The tour was tossed around between the Mystic Knights of the Cobra and Jim and I on our trip to the Bay Area for New Year’s Eve at Toot’s. That was the first time we’d met and hung out with that whole crowd, and Jim and I were blown away at how awesome and welcoming those folks were to two complete strangers spending their first New Year’s Eve on the west coast. We partied till the breaka-breaka dawn with these folks… and thought that they’d fit right in with our crazy crowd of people here at home.

After about a hundred beers and shots, Jim and some of the Cobras started talking about playing shows together, which is no easy task when your bands live 2,000 miles apart from each other. But, through the magic of the internet, we managed to actually book some shows, plan some travel and get that giant entourage of Cobras out east.

The first show of the tour was held at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC. I had to work that day and so getting up to the city in time to make sure I didn’t miss anything was kind of a CF. I hate rushing to get up there – everything’s already a push in the city and freaking out about catching the right train to make sure you don’t miss a show’s start time is irritating.

Anyway, all was well. I arrived with plenty of time to get a few drinks in me before Honah Lee and the Cobras went on. I even ran into some friends who were in town to see the opening of American Idiot on Broadway, and were kind enough to come down to see our show.

I’m going to stop blabbering and put up the photos. You can get a pretty good idea of the fun we had at this show and on into the wee hours in the city. I even was lucky enough to get a happy birthday serenade after midnight by our mob of newfound brothers and sisters. Simply said: I love these people!!

More to come… next up: DAY TWO of Party! Party! Party!
