Show Report - Tuesday June 25th, Rancho Relaxo

Theatre Trailers Live!

C - Movie trailers are usually the best part of the movie, so we were excited to see Theatre Trailers!

C -It was a fun night - HHLF played a short set, then 2 trailers, then another short set, 2 more trailers, then a slightly longer set to close the night. It was somehow less stressful playing 3 short sets. Interesting.

C -Our super cute High Lo Go Gos danced for some of the night, and we had a great crowd of ladies jump up for the last few songs. Theatre people really dig yelling and waving pompoms. I guess they’re used to being a bit wacky.

C -Since it was a theatre event, I thought this would be a good chance to dress up as one of my favourite characters from the theatre - Miss Hannigan from Annie. (Carol Burnett really knocked that one out of the park, right?) It didn’t strike me until later that her most iconic outfit was the little nightie. Dammit. Oh well. (Ever try to dry sweaty hands so you can play guitar, but you’re wearing thin polyester? I had to wipe my hands on GoGoKelly’s cotton skirt. Nice ass. Heehee!)

D - The only thing hotter than our GoGos was the temperature on stage!

C -Luckily, Mandy & Doug seemed happy to step up, but with Doug immediately refusing to be Annie. Fair enough. He was a great Daddy Warbucks, but suits are HOT so the last set was shirtless. (You’re welcome, ladies.) Mandy was the cutest Sandy puppy of all time, although she must have fried wearing fur in that heat & humidity. Oh well, that’s Rock & Roll!

C -Any night that ends with the sound princess wearing your band’s tshirt is a great freakin night!

D - I believe we all agreed on “sound goddess” instead of princess?

C - whoops - you're right! goddess!

D - So freakin’ hot! Hope nobody minded that I packed up my drums in just my undergitch. At least I left them on for a change! :-p

Show Report - Hamilton, June 20th

(feeling poetic today)

lack of traffic
hamilton waits
sun up mandy's nose

early for once
a christmas miracle
smells like lemon cleaner

pink glitter tiara
doug must wear tonight
saved by little girl’s claim

mexican restaurant
fuel for the fires of rock
tequila, it's time

plastic is offered
server buys us a round
damn good sign

this mad desire
both rock and roll
first set groovy

our turn on stage
kicking ass taking names
bouncy drunk rock

big energy created
screaming laughing rocking
fuckin awesome set

goodnight sunrise
amazingly brilliant
glow stick cherry on top

Album Review!
