  1. WWJ Show Recap

    CAROLINE BLUE Show-6/27/2009-Northern Lights-Clifton Park, NY

    -Thanks for the comment MM! I’ve only been to the place once-to see the band of a friend of mine play-but that was years ago. I was looking forward to a place that has such a great history of rock bands.

    -Things started off with me being late to the practice room. I know “what else is new? (Ha Ha), but earlier I was at a police checkpoint and thru that I found out that my front license plate was gone! Nice huh? So getting that all squared away before hitting the road took some time.

    -Me, Doc & Mindy then got Joe and away we went. We arrived there early-we were the 1st band there. Since we were the 1st band playing, we were able to set up right on stage and get a good sound check. The sound guys there-I didn’t get their names-were great & very helpful. We had a good mix onstage and people said we sounded great out front. I heard myself pretty well although I have never heard bass drums that thunderous! I mean holy crap-the vibrations actually knocked our banner off the front of the stage while we were sound checking.

    -This was a 4 band show and, as such, we only had 40 minutes to play. We were told ahead of time that the other bands were playing all original so we followed suit-with 1 exception. here’s the list

    -I’ve Seen The Light Tonight
    -Dead or Alive
    -Slave to the Hourglass
    -Won’t Be Home Tonight
    -Love Me or Leave Me
    -Out of My Life (I Want You)
    -Ace of Spades (Motorhead)

    -“Deny” was actually on the setlist as well but I totally forgot about it! I wasn’t really looking at my list. Overall, I think we did good. There was a decent sized crowd here when we went on and we got a great response from them. That was great to see-especially since this is the 1st time that CB has ever played in the Albany area. I was a tad sloppy on “Ace of Spades”-cause with Doc singing that I can actually move! In the past I used to move around a lot more on stgae but now that I used the boost on my amp during solos, I can’t be so carefree when moving. Plus with all the singing I now do, I can focus on the pitches and breathing more when I don’t move as much. Maybe I need to get a new headset mic….

    -Unfortunately, due tot he distance we had to travel, we really couldn’t stay to watch the other bands. We did catch part of Coyle’s set-they were on after us-and they sounded good. And, of course, Mr. Johnny Sniper was here & it was good to see him again. I made sure to promote him and his “sniper diapers” (thongs w/ his face on them) a few times onstage. Kinda like the old days 🙂

    -After unloading gear, I didn’t get back home till around 1 AM. To sum it up, we had a good time there & we look forward to playing in that area again in the future. Thanks to Nocturm, Coyle, Untaymed, the people & crew @ Northern Lights & Mr. Sniper for having us for this show and making things easy for us.

    -Now I have to go to work 😦
