Our show last weekend in Houston was a great success. The whole night was a funky party with awesome performances by Brandon West, the Journey Agents, us, and Electric Attitude. We packed Rudyard’s and look forward to coming back. Fortunately our buddy Hunter caught some songs on video with is iPhone! Check em out:

A couple of weeks ago we recorded this live for Balcony TV. It was a very fun process, taking less than 30 minutes. Our host Barbara is a cool chick and the whole crew was very friendly. We gathered a crowd, and some of them even came over next door to see us play at Thirsty Nickel later on in the night.
Funny side note – after we went through the song one time, I was informed that our van was about to get towed. So I had to run to the van, move it, park it, run back, and try to do another run through before our time ran out. I succeeded, as you can see in the video.

How to Batman:
On May 1st we played Fitzgerald’s in Houston for the first time. I personally have a history at Fitzgerald’s because it was the club my band in high school played at the most often. It’s been around forever and they cater to all ages, so it was our home back when I couldn’t even dream of getting into a 21+ club. It was definitely interesting jumping back on the same stage I had played on as a senior in high school, but also much different now that I have so much more experience playing in public. Jordan also has a history at Fitz’s, as his band in college played there.
I thought the show went very well over all. As part of our “Living Vicariously Through a Rockstar” segment, Jordan dressed as Iron Man for the show. It was awesome– Hooch and I started the beginning of the Black Sabbath song “Iron Man” and from the second story of the club Jordan jumped down in full-on Iron Man garb! It was fucking hilarious. Everyone was super pumped for the show after that (video coming soon, or check out the beginning of Jordan’s bio). We also debuted a new song that we have been working on for a while called “Let it Go”. Its a raucous funky song that has all of us singing and soloing, so look out for that one! Overall a great weekend in Houston, playing for friends and fans and just having an awesome time rockin’ out Achachay! Style.
