Yesterdays Pub, January 14 & 15, 2005
112 205 Carnegie Dr, St.Albert, AB
Friday night will have to go down in the history books as one of the worst nights for the band, our first set, NO our first song began with a loud buzz and screaming feedback from the monitors and front end. After bashing our way through about 4 or 5 songs (tweaking in between each one), Robin managed to locate the problem, fine tune the sound and we continued.
After the first set we figured, "Ok, that one's out of the way, now we can rock the joint". Rock the joint? Interesting, the place had the people but it didn't really matter what we played, there didn't seem to be any reaction from the crowd. We had a few guys into though, don't get me wrong, all in all the band didn't feel the energy. Saturday night however will be better, we have three birthday parties to contend with and a packed house is planned to attend. I want to thank & welcome the next Seedgirl Lauren, I'm not sure if she made the shot though...
Well well well, where do I start. Saturday night was in one word "Unfuckinbelievable". A total turnaround from Friday as far as sound and production goes, the band played with high energy and everything seemed to be in our favour. With a packed standing room only house the seed had the dance floor rockin and the club hoppin. The last night I saw that many people in Yesterdays was New Years 2003, Wow! Akrim (the owner) had to come out of the office to help at the bar it was that packed.
I would like to start by thanking everyone who came out from the base (about 40 people), awesome support, as well as The Dragon's Mexico gang, the Cote family with friends and everyone else from St.Albert who wandered in from the bitter cold to see us. I would have to say there were about 200 people there, very hard to walk around between sets but well worth it. We had a few birthdays last night to, Happy Birthday shouts to, Kate, Amber & Shad! We couldnt decide on just one Seedgirl so were putting up two from Saturday night. Thanks Zena & Brenda! Our next show is at JJ's Pub on February 4th & 5th, hope to see you there.
