Go Betty Go

I haven't had much time to blog lately, hence this incredibly backdated post. We played a show with touring girl punks GoBettyGo a few weeks ago. It was nice to play a show with some punk bands for a change and Solid Ground Cafe was nice as well.

The highlight of the evening was seeing how four girls from L.A. handle living in a van. The first thing I noticed was that hanging on the back door of their equipment trailer was a linen shoe rack. (Even girl punks need to have shoe choices on the road, apparently.) They were also traveling with two little dogs. Talk about cramped quarters. As far as I could tell, they were sleeping in the van each night and they said that they had been showering at the 24 Hour Fitness whenever they got a chance. You go, girls!

Though I don't love their style of music, they rocked pretty hard and put on a good show. The real props of the night go out to our bass player, Aaron, who despite becoming a father just six days earlier, still made it to the show.
