playing a lizard lounge show is not ideal
first it's in Alexandria, the rockinist town ever (god I wish they created a sarcasm font.)
second it is a multi-level beer hall, where folks are more interested in getting their drink on to the sounds of Kenny Chesney (sic?) then listening to a bunch of indie poppers.
third the rock was certainly not going to be felt, we were opening for a supposed R&B band that has the same name as a congressman. Nothing says rock when you share the name of a congressman.
Coupe detat, is the only description I can give. The majority of the band (read the whole band) said lets drop the show.
Emails were exchanged with the promoter, and as it turns out he apologizes to us for putting us on a bill with a groop that sounds nothing like us. So he let us cancel at the last minute. Plus he promised to give us a couple more shows at a later date.
Now, granted that is a very generous thing for him to do, but it ain't like we are the Wedding Present or even Lejeune. Then again neither of those bands would be caught in shit hole like the Lizard Lounge.
Remind me sometime to tell you about their bathroom...
