WWJ Show Recap
CAROLINE BLUE Show-2/7/2009-Nino’s-Cicero, NY
-Sorry for the late entry-this week has been very hectic for me. Last Saturday CB played at Nino’s in Cicero,NY for the 1st time. Special Guests were Defect and sound/lights were provided by Strangeland Audio.
-Nino’s is a nice place-lots of space. Everyone had to be careful in the back though-cause the power board was a little exposed. If you hit that, you’d get an extreme afro-among other things 🙂 Defect went on a little after 10. This was Chris Halen’s (bass) last night w/ the band. 1/2 way through their set, they had a little surprise for me. I was brought up onstage-along w/ the rest of CB-and was given a birthday cake made by Charleen N.! My birthday was actually that upcoming Friday-I had no idea they were going to do that-thanks! The cake was great btw 🙂 Of course, it was KISS-themed (check out the pics of it on our My Space pics of the show). Defect put on a good show. I heard they already have a new bassist lined up.
-Then it was our turn to hit the stage, which was after midnight-a little later than planned. The crowd was good sized, but dwindled as time went on. A lot of people I’d talked to earlier said they thought we were the only band playing this night and that they weren’t staying too long past a certain time. In addition, a number of other bands were out this night so that was a factor as well.
Here’s the set list for the night
-Enter Snadman (Metallica)
-Breaking the Chains (Dokken)
-Love Me or Leave Me
-Detroit Rock City (KISS)
-Man in the Box (Alice in Chains)
-I’ve Seen the Light Tonight
-Shout at the Devil (Motley Crue)
-Living Dead Girl (Rob Zombie)
-Nothing Will Satisfy You
-Where the River Flows (Collective Soul)
-Bad Girlfriend (Theory of a Deadman)
-Ace of Spades (Motorhead)
-Bulls on Parade (Rage Against the Machine)
-Living After Midnight (Judas Priest)
-Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (AC/DC)
-Rock & Roll All Nite (KISS)
-Seek & Destroy (Metallica)
-Won’t Be Home Tonight
-Get The Fuck Out (Skid Row)
-Both “Rock & Roll All Nite” & “Won’t Be Home Tonight” were requests from the audience. We received calls for an encore at the end of the night but couldn’t do one cause it was “the end of the night.” 🙂 It was nice to have a good set of front lights on us. Outside of a few problems here & there & some brain farts (the names are being withheld to protect the guilty….), the show went along fine and we had a good time.
-Thanks to Defect for opening for us & for Strangeland Audio for doing a great job w/ the lights & sound. Thanks also to Nino’s for treating us good-we look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks to all the people who came out to see us and a huge thanks to those who stuck w/ us till the very end.
Hope to see you at the next show!
