-The last time CAROLINE BLUE played at The Lost Horizon (June 8), it was so hot inside that all the band members lost weight! This time, the band didn’t have to contend with that and had a great, albeit short, set. More details are contained in WWJ’s show recap on the CAROLINE BLUE MY SPACE BLOG. Of course, we have the LIVE PICS 2006-2010 and FANS, FRIENDS & FREAKS pics from the show updated as well. Rumor has it that CAROLINE BLUE might be back at The Lost in April. Keep checking back for the latest!

CAROLINE BLUE Show-2/21/2009-The Lost Horizon-Syracuse, NY
-Hey, at least I’m back the next day for this right? 🙂 Last night, CAROLINE BLUE played at The Lost Horizon in Syracuse,NY. This was basically a very short notice gig, in that we were notified about this only last week and really didn’t get the final band line up until a few days before the show. Originally, we thought this was going to happen Friday but it was booked for Saturday. Good thing too cause the weather was horrible in CNY on Friday-I felt bad for all the bands that had to play out in that snow storm that night….
-So there were only 2 bands-us & Silent Fury. Both bands arrived around 8 and set up gear. Silent Fury has former CB drummer Josh Dean in their ranks. He’s doing well & we wish him & his band continued success. They went on around 10:30-10:45 I believe and did a combo of covers & originals. They’re a 3 piece like us and did a good job. Maybe we can do some more team ups in the future….
-Around midnight we hit the stage. Here’s the set list for the evening…
-Detroit Rock City (KISS)
-I’ve Seen The Light Tonight
-Living After Midnight (Judas Priest)
-Sex Type Thing (Stone Temple Pilots)
-Wish (Nine Inch Nails)
-Love Me or Leave Me
-Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (AC/DC)
-Seek & Destroy (Metallica)
-Out of My Life (I Want You)
-Ace of Spades (Motorhead)
-Bulls on Parade (Rage Against The Machine)
-Rock & Roll All Nite (KISS)
-Things started off on a good note *sacasm mode off* when Joe had problems w/ his mic stand-before we even hit the 1st note. Overall, I think we did good. The band is getting tighter. You may notice that, in the pics of the show, we’re back to wearing the leather and that will basically be the way it will be from now on. At one point in the show, some radio station came blasting thru the front end speakers. We also took a bunch of group pics in the backstage area. The Lost has such a great history and great backgrounds to take pics/videos at.
-We actually had planned another hour’s worth of songs to play, but the turnout wasn’t huge and-when that happens at The Lost, they stop the bands at 1 AM. Wish I’d known about that before we hit the stage but that’s ok. We’re adaptable. We had a good time playing here. I personally love playing on that stage and have felt that way ever since I played on it w/ my first band back in…oops, we’re out of time already? (HA!)
-We want to give a big thanks to Bryan & Greg for having us there-looking forward to being back again in April. Thanks to Silent Fury for playing with us. And most of all-thanks to all the great people who came out tonight to support us. It’s so deeply appreciated.
Next show-Friday 2/27 at Shamrocks in North Syracuse,NY. CAROLINE BLUE from 10-2.
We hope to see you there!
