show was Wednesday night just south of Boston proper in Jamiaca Plain — pretty infamous party of Boston and we played a JP's best music dive — Midway Cafe. local acoustic army The Thin Heir had invited us on to the bill for the evening thanks to our mutual friends in local band The Points North — who we're excited to play with on Sunday in Montpelier, VT!!! ended up being a very wild show with last minute random addition to the show Bill's Kitchen kicking the night off with a series of classic rock covers altered to be Jesus covers. it was a fascinating juxtaposition. they were all really nice and even brought a fake campfire to put on the front of the stage, which made us all feel that much more at home.
the owner of Midway is one strange beast — a very enthusiastic and loud Bostonian bar owner who was very much a part of the entertainment for the evening. at points jumping around in a weird alien costume. at other times just being rowdy and firing up the crowd. right after our set he attributed the Boston Bruins overtime win and the Red Sox win that night to us... very boisterously from stage. and then threw in a bunch of potato jokes for good measure. it was awesome. and hilarious. really really fun show. got to see some old friends from tours past as well. loved all the locals that played (also Crystal Joy and Stars Regardless). and The Thin Heir were a perfect sans electricity end to the evening. all 8 of them.
headed to Northampton, MA tonight and then in Lisa and my old stomping grounds up in Vermont on Saturday and Sunday. super excited. NYC next Wednesday and Thursday. if you have friends in the city send them to www.myspace.com/finnriggins for details!!
