    Club M!

    My drummer had a gig there a few years ago and the owner refused to play the band and assaulted the owner. I think the band was Space Hippie or Peach Pie. They had to sue him to get paid.

    In that process, their case managed to get on People's Court (or that one with the young Hispanic judge). It's kinda funny...

    Anyway, just make sure he pays

    Sorry. I'd love to hear those monstrous basses, but that weekend I will be up at FSU for a DB audition. That night while you're playing I'll probably be scared out of my mind for the audition

    oh, well, good luck with it. any other miami folks?
     
  6. I just moved to Florida recently and happen to live in Hollywood. I've been to Club M a couple of times. It's a tiny place, but on certain nights it can draw a good crowd. I gotta go to a dinner in Miami that night, but I'll try to stop by on my way back. Any idea around what time you'll be playing?

    we were told by the club that the time would be about 10:30 - sounded like it might even be later, so it's going to be a late night i imagine. if we get any more specific info, i'll post it here.

    I just got John's band's CD Fear and Trembling and it's a rocking record. I'm sure they're going to be a bass intense experience. I'd go if I were nearby.

    Hey John, when are you playing Hollywood, Ca?

  14. John, if you get a chance be sure to get out to the beach and "boardwalk" (actually the old beach front road that has been shut down) in Hollywood. I played down there last year and we had a great time. Beautiful beach and loads of cafes and bars. Near the north end is a place called Angelo's Corner that has some of the best pizza I've ever tasted.
