We wanted to thank everyone who came out to the Noble Savage this last weekend. The place was packed, every table had a reservation, and the waiters did not stop all night. We saw so many good friends and a few surprise guests (what's up Mike!) who made the night a truly memorable one.
Our good friends from Austin, Shotgun Party, were awesome. They always put on a great show with amazing vocals, fiddle and bass, we were proud to be the ones to introduce them to Shreveport. Everyone loved their high energy performance and quickly became fans. We saw a bunch of folks walking out of the bar with Shotgun Party CD's, so we know the word will be spreading around town quickly! We will definitely be bringing them back.
We got up on stage and the people were insane. Folks were already piled up in the front and were ready to get down. Thanks again to SP for getting the crowd riled up! We played all the old favorites, including 2 new tunes! Footsteps, and "yet to be named". Both went better than we hoped and the crowd just kept on going. When we came back from our break, everyone was still there, ready to go all night and we were happy to do it. We closed out the night with an encore of "Underwater Turtle" with help from Special guest Andy from Infamous Jaguar Shark. This night was truly one for the books and we hoped it would be. This was our last gig until the end of May, so we were really amped to put on a good show. Thanks to everyone that came out, all the old faces and some of the new (Happy Birthday Bill!). We can't wait to jam again!
So here's the scoop. We're taking the next 6 weeks off to record our new album (more to come soon!) and also allow Matt and his wife Ashley the time to birth their new baby. We're still waiting for her to arrive (the word is it's a girl) but will keep you all posted on their progress. We hope to have our CD completed by mid Summer and will tour heavily to support it. Be looking for dates soon!
So what do you think? Were you at the Savage? How about Shotgun Party? Leave us some thoughts, Show us some love!
