Foz Rotten - Truest Romance
(Live @ The Blue Parrot 03-30-12)
Crazy/long/great weekend! Had my first show with Charlie Ant Eaterr performing with me as my new live band at The Blue Parrot in Charleston on Friday night, and it felt great! The feeling of playing with a band on stage, there’s nothing else that touches it when putting on a show. I still love my sets when it’s just me and my iPod as my DJ, but there’s just something about playing with a full band, syncing in together and putting on a show as a collective, that’s unparalleled.
Saturday was spent with friends and family at a benefit show in my hometown of Logan. It was a fundraiser for the victims of the flooding that happened here a couple weeks back, and was held at the beautiful Coalfield Jamboree, a place I remember going to as a kid, and it still just as breathtaking. An old theater, that now holds local plays and concerts on occasion, mostly country, bluegrass, and gospel bands. This was definitely an eclectic line up, a lot of my friends were performing (Charlie Ant Eaterr, Beaver Knievel, Let The Guilty Hang, Tim Browning & The Widowmakers, etc…) along w/ other local acts that volunteered there time. It was one of the craziest mixes I’d ever seen, with a classic style rock band playing next to a bluegrass singer, next to a heavy metal band, it was great.
After the benefit, I played a couple songs with the Ant Eaterr boys at The Hot Cup, making for an impromptu acoustic set (Pictured below by Chris Hale). If you’re ever in the area, definitely stop by the coffee shop, the best eatery in our fair community by far, and always a chair open for anyone who wants to play a song, any time of day.
Up next a show at The Empty Glass in Charleston on April 21st!
See you then West Virginia!
