SUBWOOFER - PLAYING LIVE TONIGHT @ CROWN N ANCHOR..
funny how these things happen..
yesterday riding the bus into town.. dudes in front of me were talking.. "hey, CIRCLE CLAN playing Saturday night at the Crown N Anchor".. my ears pricked up... coz, y'know.. CIRCLE CLAN.. we know those crazy cats.. they'd been in the studio last few months.. working on new songs, this wuz meant to be their big RETURN gig.. where we get to hear all the new shiny stuff.. I know I wuz amped.. hey, where else would I be on Saturday night?
so, got into town.. to make a *ahem* CD-ROM trade-off with the G-man.. (y'know top secret ninja shit.. plans for world domination, a few baking recipes.. crap like that..) and walkin' past, wuz Getty from BARCODE.. as he passes by.. he tells me.. "OI.. CIRCLE CLAN, playing Saturday night at the Cranka.. should be a good 'un!"
perhaps at this moment.. I wuz starting to get where this wuz leading.. but the universe decided to drop me a few more hints..
I decide to drop by Joe's work.. check up on the progress of some Business cards I'm gettin' printed up.. she asks me.. "so, dude.. you know about CIRCLE CLAN Saturday night.. riiiight?"
so.. CIRCLE CLAN / PLAYING SATURDAY NIGHT / CROWN N ANCHOR..
I believe I got that message cheerfully drilled into my skull..
later.. that night, me n Stuckey (Copy One) did our best to sneak in free to the TESTEAGLES gig at ADELAIDE UNI.. we tried the back entrance, tried to get the bouncers to send some message to Matty (lead singer, dude we know) to try and get us in for free.. to no success.. he hadn't arrived yet.. we spotted a few friends of ours.. Wokka n Heidi already inside.. in charge of videotaping the gig.. (they'd already got in free). We signalled to Wokka to get him outside.. Wokka wuz more or less floating vague.. so after much aimless gibbering.. he wandered back inside.. eventually spotted Matty arriving.. and got our names on the door.. just as we were thinkin' of leaving..
so.. as if by chance.. we finally GET into this gig.. (for free..) and wot's the first thing I hear..?
"oh CRAP.. CIRCLE CLAN GIG CANCELLED!!"
I heard, that apparently the lead singer had a bad case of laryngitis and had to pull out.. no voice.. no gig..
conveniently enough, around this moment.. Pagey (lead guitarist from Circle Clan) rings in, to tell the band organiser for CROWN N ANCHOR.. that they're cancelling.. I just happen to be standing next to her.. somewhat oblivious.. until.. I heard a few words.. connected the dots.. when I heard her complaining.. "aaaaw shit.. who do we get to replace THEM!!??"
at this point.. talkin' faster than I think, I blurt out.. "HEY, WE'LL DO IT!!"
and.. by fluke of coincidence.. we end up playing in their spot..
now, wot makes this even funnier.. is our MC (Copy One) is also suffering a mild case of Laryngitis.. but after a quick discussion (mostly about the size of the beer rider..) Copy One made a miraculous recovery.. and jumped at the chance to unleash..
and.. so, that is how we ended up playing a gig tonight.. instead of CIRCLE CLAN..
should be a funny one..
it's not like we've rehearsed..
actually.. when DO we actually rehearse? hehehehehe
so.. yeah.. come check it out..
should be pure chaos :)
