Down Home 10-10!
Our friends Greg and Linda Wallace stopped by rehearsal Tuesday to shoot some video. This may seem like a lot of trouble to promote our show at the Down Home October 10, but one time my buddy Colin and I were starting a new band and we spent a whole night making demo tapes of our songs to distribute to members of Virginia Intermont’s Equestrian Studies program so when they came to our first show they would already know the songs. The thinking was, if the VI girls come, so will everyone else. This strategy worked a little too well: a large and somewhat unruly crowd descended on the 7th St. Cafe, and after the gig we were banned from playing there again. Accounts as to what exactly happened vary. All accounts include VI girls.
