Twilight Delirium 8 (the ocho)
Saturday night was a huge success. Thanks a lot to everyone who fought back all the frat dudes with Duke Lacross tshirts on to make it to the Caledonia after the bike race. Big thanks to the people from Atlanta that drove up, and the Bergerons (all 6 in attendence)!!! Steve Stevenson & The Steverinos were fuckin great. First show ever and they delivered. Shakey start but once they realized how fun playing can be, they cooled out and played well. Everyone I talked to really liked it a lot. I think the "STEVE!" chant at the end of their set proved that. Really brought back some awesome memories of the first few France shows. MB/Velc was krunkly and awesome as shit. I first saw MB at 8:45 and he thought it was 5pm. Been drinking since he awoke - he got up inbetween some bands and handed us our brains on a platter. Funny ass sub shit. Night Moves was out of this world. The cdr Ice burned me has these songs on there but jesus did I know the songs would fucking come alive on stage. extended versions of pretty much everything and god damn those bass lines. A few technical flubs, but overall the shit was tighter than you could have expected. So smooth. Flip and I hit it an quit it with about 12 minutes of jams to a nice reception. Had to cut a new one b/c of the time restraints and truly we just had to give the hits on a delirium night. Hillary has video of Energon Cubes.
What next, mutherfuck yeah - THE TRAP. Bombastic Flash Gordon intro warmed us up and hits like Molotov Cocktail and RAVERS UNITE brought our asses into teh promised land. I think they played Ravers Unite 3 times. Bonus time. I think they got on stage at 12:50 so time was crunched and they didnt get to play as long as they wanted. Guess they'll have to play my 30th bday, oh well. France went on somewhere around 1:30 I think. Everyone was in it to win it, crowd was off the chain and right there with us the whole night. Thanks. Had a true french intro, which will see the light of day someday. Played some sloppy covers and vowed never to touch that ground twice. I think I finally realized it was an amazing delirium when the crowd took the knee for the second time. God damn, so awesome yall. I look over and see Ice's dad give me a huge smile and a thumbs up. Thats the night in a nutshell. Oh yeah, is Jared Brown alive? Thanks also to everyone who bought copies of the France/Acid Mothers 12". Much appreciated. We also had new Tshirts to sell but we never got them to the club from Nick Canada's house. I'll post a picture of one of them soon. I think ice is charging like $5 a piece for em. Missed Dark, Crog, SA, and Ken majorly, but the next time we're in Athens in July - you'll not only see a 9 horse strong france, but also hear the jams we cant play with only 5 people. ONLY 5 people, that sounds awesome. Oh yeah and we'll have copies of Af Maj for sale. Thanks for a great time everyone!
Pictures to come...
