The band took a little ride up to Columbia SC’s Art Bar. This is simply my kind of place. Cool hand made electric stuff, real live music, Super nice people, fun people, and finally professional. The bands we played with PHD, a local hard rocking band sounded remarkably fabulous and brought a nice crowd. While Mercy Mercy, from Jacksonville Florida had me thinking how much I love simply love music. I loved their tone and overall performance level. Go check these guys out, They kind of remind me of The Lizard Men and a new version of 60's rock. The venue itself is rectangular with a dividing wall, and with a couch section in the back. The bar had a nice selection of whatever you wanted, it was clean, and the staff was just great. I mean I’d still consider it a “dive bar” and music venue. The sort of place where I have seen the best bands ever, some of whom the mass public will hardly know. I was in a Sci-Fiction sanctuary, with "art deco" robots and old sci-fi movie posters. We played a new set and really had fun with it. What is next? Well, shows in December and January, need to work on February, March… I'm happy the folks seemed to respond 100% positively with the music, which for is like saying here's a "baby" I just gave birth to. Check it out in all it's afterbirth, blood, and perfect rawness. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of flaws, but it's perfect to me, like only a proud parent can be in the very moment a child is born. That's my perspective from a non-parent. Hopefully I don’t get parents mad at me for comparing music to a new born baby. I'm just expressing how much this music means to me and how much I love creating things especially music, and really just watching this grow.
