No Dave, Russ filling in while dave is on the disabled list. what would happen?
It was around 5:30 PM when I (Brad) arrived on the scene. JT's Music. I just got off the phone with Har Har and went into the place we were about to play. Holy Crap! I exclaimed to myself , this bar is awesome. A Stage 10 feet off the ground. Fancy seating. CUP could really rock out here. I don't see Jeff anywhere though. so I walk outside and call him back and say "I'm here, where are you." Jeff replies in the corner of the strip mall where JT's music was. I was at the wrong place. So Now I'm at JT's and it's not as cool, and there is no bar. but they did sell candy. They Eat Candy!!! the raccoons do. ask a CUP member.
The Place was still cool though, with a stage that jutted out in the center for extra rocking. It was dark though so no one could see proper solo action. Russ was punctilious in his learning efforts. He played songs almost flawlessly. Except that one time we took the same solo. it was my fault, but i'm going to blame it on him.
Peeps had to pay 7 bucks to get in. We appreciate the maximum effort. We had 9 people show up. We made 10 bucks. Russ did a great job filling in for Dave who was out of town for a white wedding. Billy Idol
They Had a Projector and screen here too, see The July 11 Journal entry for proper usage.
Thanks to everyone who came. I didn't mention LOLO. so here it is. Jeff Lareau is a great drummer. and We got him. So, Stay out our way, bitch.
