  1. WWJ Show Recap

    CAROLINE BLUE Show-5/8/2009-Malarkey’s-Cortland, NY


    -So here we are with our show recap at Malarkey’s in Cortland,NY. We’ve never really played in this area before (unless you count a Nikstock a few years ago, but that’s more south than here) and we were looking forward to breaking into a new area.

    -After getting soaked by a sudden rainstorm right while getting out of work, I made my way to the show. While loading gear, I somehow injured my left hand while loading gear. It was aching on top of my hand near the middle/ring fingers and inside my forearm. I was concerned about it, but it didn’t really affect my playing this night-which was a relief.

    -Malarkey’s is a smaller bar-nice place. Knuckle Burn was going on 1st and put on a good set. They’re heavier than we are-so it was a little surprising when they did “Rebel Yell” (Billy Idol), but they did a good job in covering it. They’re tight and we look forward to working w/ them in the future.

    -After a change over, we hit the stage. Here’s the set list

    -Nothing Will Satisfy You
    Bad Girlfriend (Theory of a Deadman)
    -Sober (Tool)
    -Shout at the Devil (Motley Crue)
    -Locked & Loaded (Halford)
    -Living Dead Girl (Rob Zombie)
    -Where the River Flows (Collective Soul)
    -For Whom The Bell Tolls (Metallica)
    -Sex Type Thing (Stone Temple Pilots)
    -Slave to the Hourglass
    -Voodoo (Godsmack)
    -Man in the Box (Alice in Chains)
    -Welcome to the Fold (Filter)
    -Out of My Life (I Want You)
    -Paranoid (Black Sabbath)
    -Wish (Nine Inch Nails)
    -You’ve Got Another Thing Comin (Judas Priest)
    -Detroit Rock City (KISS)
    -I’ve Seen The Light Tonight
    -Seek & Destroy (Metallica)
    -Dirty Deeds (AC/DC)
    -Love Me or Leave Me
    -Enter Sandman (Metallica)
    -Ace of Spades (Motorhead)

    -Overall, we did good. I think Joe didn’t have a monitor and me & Doc had to share one-course, it was on the side of my bad ear. Oh well. We also had a volume problem-but not that we were too loud. My guitar was too low-but part of that was cause I had to turn my cabinet towards Doc so the audience didn’t hear me as much. My amp was as high volume wise as it can go (at least till I get the cabinets that are made for the Fender Amphead I have). We had a few “hiccup” moments, but overall we did good. During “Voodoo” this old guy came up to me and started waving his hands like he was casting a spell on me 🙂 Too bad I didn’t have that necklace w/ the Wiccan symbol on this time. We made a bunch of new friends and even got a bonus w/ our pay! Signing body parts was a nice plus too 🙂

    -Then we went to an after show part, which was fun. There was a photographer at the show named Chris Sanford who took some great shots of us performing. We’ll get those up as soon as I get all of them (I have some of them now) and I’m done re-sizing them. I have to admit, it felt a little strange to be at a party and hear CAROLINE BLUE music blasting in the background. One funny thing happened-the owner of the house has a little puppy. I was sitting on the couch and the puppy came up to me & started licking my hand (right where the injury was in fact)-for 15 minutes! I think I made a new friend 🙂 We were there late so we ended up staying overnight at Knuckle Burn’s drummer’s place-coincidentally, he & Joe look a lot alike when they’re playing. Joe managed to get a wine glass as a gift from the part. I think it was around 5 or 6 AM when all was said & done. We had a great time & look forward to playing in the Cortland area again in the future.

    -Thanks to Leyda for setting this show up for us. Also thanks to both Malarkey’s & Knuckle Burn for letting us play there/with them. And thanks to all the people who were there and checked us out. We look forward to performing for you soon.
