    This is what my band will be playing at our first show, along with a bunch of originals:

    Billy Joel - We Didn't Start The Fire
    The Eagles - Hotel California
    The Beatles - I Wanna Hold Your Hand
    Not Sure - Monster Mash
    The Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop
    J Geils Band - Angel is the Centerfold
    Nirvana (a cover by them) - Mollys Lips
    Black Flag - Wasted
    The Monkees - Daydream Believer
    Pearl Jam - Last Kiss

    I believe that is it. What do you think of it? I mean give it a good reivew. Thanks!

    By the way, the FREE show is at the Toys R Us on South Third Street in Philadelphia (or just South Street.. hmm.. hold on a few days, ill let you know the exact location), Saturday, July 3rd. We will be playing from 12 to 2. If you're in the area please stop by and check us out! Let me know if you will stop by.

    Oh yeah, we play mostly ska, reggae, punk, and some Sonic Youth type stuff. Our lyrics are hilarious and some people just laugh hearing them, while others think they are funny but appreciate our talent as well. Or both. :D

    Once again I'll let you know a definent location in a day or two.

    PS: Review the Setlist! This isn't just a blatant attempt to get people to come to the show!

    Thats a severely eclectic set list dude. I don't know how people would react to that.

    it depends.. There's tons of variety in the set, which can be good. but there's also NO continuity. The audience might not want to hear Black Flag and the Monkees back to back, or in the same set for that matter.

    Oh.. Its not in order. We have to work that out. We will keep that in mind when making the order, but I'm sure it will remain eclectic. Oh well, the show is too soon to change it. At least its fun. :)

    I get what you're saying. Thanks. I think it will work since this is a free show, and we don't know what kind of audience we will have. Our original stuff is all pretty much ska or reggae with some punk thrown into some of the ska songs, so that should make it more interesting (or eclectic).

    No offense but that setlist looks like one of my compilation CD's.

    For example...

    Conquistador - Procol Harum
    Concerto for trombone and orchestra - Rimsky Korsakov
    No Shelter - Rage against the machine
    Wipeout - Pennywise
    The 4 seasons - Vivaldi
    Farmhouse - Phish
    No one knows - Queens of the Stoneage
    Blue Trombone - JJ Johnson
    Criminal - Fiona Apple
    Innocent Man - Billy Joel
    etc....


    See what I mean?

    I can tell you how people react to my cd's......






    THEY'RE FREAKING SCARED. You have to pick a genre if you ever want to grow.

    lol that CD does look scary. No offense taken. Toys R Us cancelled on us. hmm.. well anyway we just had a barbecue instead and played for family and friends. The set list went over well.
