So I’m always teasing Nikki about how serious she takes everything… Maybe I’m being an ass about it, but I don’t mean to be, sometimes things are just funny to me. Everybody’s got their quirks.
Anyhow, we were out with the kids for breakfast one morning. Addi was coloring, and Nikki was holding her iPhone aloft and trying to get a good pic – as is her custom. She looked super dramatic and focused, so I snapped one of her – as is mine. Took it home and while she busied herself with some design work, I cranked a few of my own out. Hope you like em!
So this weekend was CRAZY.
Friday night we hit up Ye Olde Towne Inn in Mount Prospect to close out a killer lineup featuring Solarsphere and Once the Sun. Something Beautiful was in rare form, thanks to the fact that Once the Sun was using a backing track setup that let us fire up our own orchestra, so big thanks to them!
Long night though. We were closing – which we of course found out after loading – but to be fair, I called it. Jim digs us, so we close out YOTI pretty often. Texted Jim while I was on the way but he was out on the road with Jungle Rot, of course!
Now closing out the night after two blue motherfuckers (the second courtesy of Tommy from Armored Assault) Was no small task, but hearing the string parts and extra bits come out of the house speakers really made it a good night for me. Playing A Voice in the Shadows and Crimson and Violet back to back like the old days was a real good trip, we only did songs that had backing tracks – nothing loose. I got stuck a bar late in Daughter of God, but for less than half a phrase, so I’m not too mad at it. It was Tommy’s fault anyway!
BIG props to Chris for not only coming to the show and paying the cover, but helping us kill our pizza AND move our equipment!
