Sweaty little monkey fresh back from The Rock Show. Don’t mind my ‘fro…that’s what happens when my hair gets wet.
As is typical when I get home after a stretch on the road, I sat down on the couch and got very sleepy. But thankfully, the emptiness, silence and coldness of my place scared me out in search of company, noise, and warmth.
What a brilliant way to kick off the 2012 year in shows, two hometown bands played my favorite venue in Athens. The Futurebirds opened the show and Patterson came out to end their set with a kicked-up version of Wild Heart. They really are such a fun, fun band. I then got to spend the evening hanging out and dancing my ass off with the rest of the gang in Cooleyville until I escaped for a cold beer and some fresh air during the encore break.
For my friends in Scotland who asked, yes, David Barbe was on bass tonight, though I understand he’s probably not the permanent replacement for Shonna.
