Long Overdue – Goose Island Show Recap

The Mediocre Fight

Surprise surprise, I procrastinated and now I’m making a post about our show from January in February.  I’ll try to get on these a bit quicker in the future.

So we played at Goose Island January 22nd with Dennis Florine, The Mike Renick Band, and our debonair drummer’s other band Funk in the Trunk.

Dennis Florine opened with an acoustic set that at times was reminiscent of Howie Day when he used his loop pedals.  Great voice, great songwriting, and he just got engaged (Congratulations!).  Next up was The Mike Renick Band, who were a very Dispatch/Dave Matthews sounding band (a good thing, these guys were great).  Funny story – they’re from St Louis, and apparently their guitarist knows our friend Liz.  Small world!

Next was our set, which was a hell of a lot of fun to play.  We played a new song “Space Caveman” for the first time, which got a great reaction from the crowd.  We’ve worked on this one and changed a lot in the past couple of weeks, so I can’t wait to get out there and play it again.  People also loved the new Daft Punk-esque ending to New Song, which actually has a name now!  I think we’re going with “Passed Time.”

Lastly Funk in the Trunk played, and Jason was a trooper to play for almost 3 straight hours on the drums.  These guys are awesome, and had a huge draw to the show.  By far my favorite song was their rendition of “Bed Intruder” (the Antoine Dodson song) – you can see it for yourself here:  Bed Intruder Song performed by Funk in the Trunk.

Incredibly fun night with a lot of great bands – we’re already talking to the booking agent about playing another show here with the same lineup.  Not only that – apparently this was the first show in 2011 that broke capacity for Goose Island!

And now that you’ve read all that I’m going to give you what I know you’re all really here for: a poor quality photo from the show taken on a camera phone!!! ZOMG

The band in Bears gear. We were not enough to help them win.

Thanks again to everyone who came out to see us, see you at the next show!
