The Barn Recap

To be honest, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from 'The Barn'...but am happy to say that I had a great time and that the band will be playing there again.

  • The band rocked out as usual!
  • $5 Busch Light pitchers until 9PM
  • Bar patrons were completely into it
  • TWO Birthdays
  • Tons of Luke's family made it out
  • Breakfast the next AM at Carmen & Mike's
  • Short notice, so the band couldn't book a sound guy and had to use their own practice PA. Given how hard it is to hear without monitors, the band still did pretty sweet.
  • $6.50 Jäger bombs
  • $5 cover (I think $3 or less is pretty standard for West Michigan, outside of GR)
Here's a couple photos courtesy of Adam Bessigner's facebook:

Happy Birthday Kristine!

More to come, once I find the damned USB cord for the camera.

Recap: The Rosebud 9/5 with Dirty Americans

Despite some technical difficulties with the sound, the crowd was really into the performance given by Kilacel, and Luke handed out quite a few cards to interested listeners.

Upon hearing what I had hoped was just a rumor and not actually true, I decided to band together some girls (and Will) to support bassist Kyle...

Recap: The Rosebud

I've got a bruise that is about 8" long on my waist and I cannot remember how I got it...My new satin finish shoes look like I went for a jog through a pool of beer...and I'm not sure if the Guinness spot on my white tube top is coming out...and... IT WAS WORTH IT.

I had so much fun on Saturday. I cannot believe that every time I was up dancing that there were so many people up front that I didn't recognize! I talked to one woman who is a corporate lawyer in Boston, and she said that she wants to see them playing out on the East Coast. There were plenty of new faces and everyone was letting loose! If you missed out last weekend, The band's going to be back at the Rosebud next Saturday to play with Voodoo Theory and Dirty Americans!

Birthday-wise, I hope Ian had a good time. I think my immediate family may have drank enough to cover the band's fee ^_^ I swiped all the photos from Kristin's myspace. I'm so glad Kristin, Jason, Kara, Morgan, Matt & Adam all came out to their first Kilacel show on Saturday. Hope to see more of you guys!
