WWJ Show Recap
CAROLINE BLUE Show-4/11/2009-Shamrocks-N.Syracuse, NY
-Here’s the show recap from CAROLINE BLUE’s performance @ Shamrocks in N. Syracuse,NY on Friday 4/11/09-brought to you by the letter W 🙂 This was an interesting show. The last time we were here we had a good sized crowd thru out the night. We didn’t have a huge crowd this time around. Part of that was because it was Easter weekend. A number of people that we invited out to the show said they couldn’t come because of this. In addition, the most popular rock cover band from CNY (Under The Gun) was playing about 5-10 miles away- in addition to some other bands, so that affected the draw as well. It’s ok-big or small draw, we still do what we do. Here’s the set list for this night…
-Piece of Me (Skid Row)
-Living After Midnight (Judas Priest)
-Scars (Papa Roach)
-Man in the Box (Alice in Chains)
-Ace of Spades (Motorhead)

-I’ve Seen The Light Tonight
-Shout at The Devil (Motley Crue)
-Bad Girlfriend (Theory of a Deadman)
-Love Me or Leave Me
-Rock & Roll All Nite (KISS)
-Bulls on Parade (Rage Against The Machine)
-Enter Sandman (Metallica)
-Cold Gin (KISS)
-Dirty Deeds (AC/DC)
-Dead or Alive
-Far Away From Home
-Breaking the Chains (Dokken)
-Talk Dirty to Me (Poison)
-Seek & Destroy (Metallica)
-Living Dead Girl (Rob Zombie)
-Where the River Flows (Collective Soul)
-Slave to the Hourglass
-You’ve Got Another Thing Comin (Judas Priest)
-For Whom The Bell Tolls (Metallica)
-Sex Type Thing (Stone Temple Pilots)
-Out of My Life (I Want You)
Ace of Spades (Motorhead)
-This was a mixed show for me. We started off pretty good. Then we got a request to do “Ace of Spades” from the crowd (“Already??-HA!) . So we’re doing that and, at one point, I dropped down to 1 knee. Well, in doing that, the headstock of the guitar hit me right in the head! In addition to that, the guitar went out of tune-and would go out of tune at various times thru out the rest of the 1st set. This was really evident on “Enter Sandman” where the tuning changed from being a touch out of tune to being like at least 1 1/2 steps out-if not more-UGH! There’s not much you can do when you’re in the middle of the song but soldier on.
-Then, at the start of the 2nd set, I forgot to raise the volume up on the 1st note-thankfully it was just a holding chord. It wasn’t long, though, before we got our groove back and really put a great finish-hence why, I believe, we got the encore.
-Sound was much better this time around than last time. It also helped that my new Fender Metalhead amp was here. Last time, w/ the Carvin, my sound was buried and thin. This time it cut right thru and was thick. I believe the overall improvement in sound also helped us deliver a better performance.
-We want to than everyone @ Shamrocks for having us there & being great to us. (Steve-I still say there’s a box in the back that has all your 80’s hair in it-HA!). We also want to give thanks to all the great people who came out to see us & to those who helped us out w/ stuff. We’ll be back here in July.
-It’s a week off the road for us & then back to Ogdensburg!
