It was a cold night in New York City on Feb 8th, 2010. Hadouken!, had come to town from across ‘the pond‘, looking for an elevated platform from which to launch their fireballs. Me and my gaggle of models (hi guys!) had a performance scheduled at the very same location (seemingly already conquered by Hadouken!’s mountains of equipment). Fortunately for us, one of their touring members turned out to be this very kind sound technician who helped us move our belongings hither and thither. Big up to that dude. Our pre-show routine was proceeding smoothly…
Things got a little hairy right before we started playing. I acted quickly toward a resolution, however, by offering up my headphone amp as a sacrifice to Hadouken!. I simply plugged it into their funny-looking power strip (tnwss), which basically murdered it. I’m happy to report that it has not died in vain, however: the result was the successful completion of both our’s and Hadouken!’s shows! I must now begin my long journey to find a replacement headphone amp. I will begin with a prayer and a few bucks at the quagmire known as “guitar center”. Wish me luck!
Anyway, we started playing, and everything was going great. Model-001 was righteous and Models-003 and -002 were slammin’. Right in the middle of a song, though, this really big fish swam up and perched on my cymbal:
So, I ate that sh&t.
More importantly though, we played great, and lots of fabulous people showed up. CHECK OUT THIS GREAT BLOGPOST ABOUT IT! Thanks, King of the Gigabitches! (say it five times fast)
Also, check out all of eatsdirt’s excellent photos!
