That was FUN. Nothing like looking out into a happy, dancing crowd and not being able to see the back of the room. Wow. Chapel Hill, you most certainly brought the party.
This past Saturday we played our beloved Cave (TRIVA! John Howie Jr.'s childhood picture still hangs in the bar, as does a portrait of Dave Hartman, so look for it next time you find yourself in our favorite underground haunt) with our buddies Amigo from Charlotte NC.
Just in case you missed them, check them out this week at The Garage (We love you Garage!!!) in my old school turf of Winston-Salem on Saturday May 31st.
You never quite know what you're going to step into when you arrive at a venue. From the moment we unloaded our gear, we were greeted by smiling familiar faces (y'all know who you are, and we are SO THANKFUL for each and every one of you!) and it was clear the evening was buzzing. Quite a few people had all claimed their spots before Amigo chimed their first chord, and that's always a great sign.
I've been all over the world, and there's nothing quite like the magic found in a North Carolina spring/summer night... and there was plenty of magic in The Cave on Saturday. You all are phenomenal!
A great big shout out to Luis Rodriguez for sitting in with us while Tim is visiting family overseas! Luis really rose to the occasion, and it was wonderful to look over and see his smiling face and positive energy.
We'll be at the INDY Best of 2014 party on June 7th! I inserted the poster below, so we hope to see you all there. Help us celebrate some of the triangle's highlights and hidden gems in lovely downtown Durham. It's going to be a blast.
We simply cannot express our thanks for all the wonderful support you lovely people have given us. You all are what keep us going and we promise not to let you down.
Until next time!
