  1. We opened for Lifehouse and the Goo Goo Dolls last night to a packed theatre...quite nice really! :D

    Damn fine gig, we played really well I reckon - I'm still on a decent buzz today...just had to share!

  5. Pretty big crowd for a Sunday night (500-1000 I guess, but i'm useless at counting!), both upstairs seated and downstairs standing.

    Huge stage (plenty of room to use the wireless), and with Lifehouse's bass rig on stage it looked like I was playing through 3 x 810s, 2 x SVTs and 1 x Eden! :D :D

    The guys from all the bands (there were two rooms, the other had a cool local band (Elemeno P) supporting A Simple Plan and Default) were cool to hang and talk with - I was expecting a little snobbery, but none whatsoever.

    The first time our rider included a cheese & fruit platter! :) We were very well taken care of for a local support band.

    Pity all the photos my good wifey took show me with my head down - gotta work on that! :(
