Recent events

So, we played again for the first time in a month. We were a part of Inauguration week, 2005. We played a big show set up by Barbara Bush (the daughter, not the mother). It was a concert called "America's Future Rocks Today", held at The Armory. For not having played together in a month, we put on a pretty good show in front of 10,000 kids. We played with Fuel, 3 Doors Down, Reuben Studdard, JoJo, and Hilary Duff.
The show went well, but then we were stuck at the venue for like 2 hours, because the president was coming in. So, we couldn't leave, and couldn't even get back to our gear or dressing room. We all got split up, and then when we finally DID all regroup, we didn't have transportation back to our hotel, so we had to wait ANOTHER hour. Long, stressful night. But, I got to see the president speak, be in the same building, all that jazz.
THEN, our flight from DC to NY was delayed about 2 1/2 hours becuase of weather conditions. We wound up making a flight that got us in JUST IN TIME for soundcheck at NYC's China Club, for a WPLJ performance. The show went great. Played for about an hour, and had a blast. The show was great, the fans were very cool, and that great night totally balanced out the previous night. Now, looking forward to the 24th, when we go to LA for rehearsals, and see some west coast dwelling friends.
Oh, and Ashlee Simposon's show returns with a new season on January 26th. Don't be suprised if you catch a familiar face on there.

  • Jordan, what can i say, your so hot right now. Times have changed from the wild dayz of the sammy house...dayz to wild to even be repeated here

    Where ever serge is, he probably misses you. And is thinking of you. And only you. HAHAHAHHAA
