Sorry about falling behind with the updates. You know the way it is... It's summer time and the living is easy. Well, that's the cliche anyway. The bottom line is we have been sewing up details on the 2010 European Tour. You would think we would have this thing down pat, but there's always another last minute problem on the horizon. While you sit around your grill drinking beer and wait for us to come to your town and entertain you like trained monkeys, we have big decisions to make on whether Europeans want to buy a 4 color worskshirt from us, or a custom cowboy shirt with back design. It's a real pressure cooker over here.
Here's what we have going over the next few weeks. We'll return to Chicago at a place called Quenchers for a Thursday night September 9th gig. The last time we were there Greg almost lost his eye when Bobby Latina swung his guitar while riding Greg's shoulders during a Cowslingers gig. It will probably be safer for Greg's eye this time as there is little evidence Greg can squat Gary's weight, so shoulder riding is doubtful for The Squirrel. The next night Friday September 10th will find the band in Cincinnati for the re-scheduled Northside Tavern Blackout date. As promised, the band will honor anyone's ticket stub from the cancelled show earlier this Summer for free admission. The fact that there was never going to be cover for this show does not take away from this unbelievably generous gesture on the band's part.
Things get tricky on Saturday, September 11th. The band will have to get up early and hoof it to the Steeltown Shakedown outside of Pittsburgh for a 2 PM show. Then after playing, checking out the car show, and maybe letting Leo get an ill advised tattoo, we'll jump in the van to go to Youngstown and the Pabstolutely Festival behind the Royal Oaks. In theory, we'll be playing there around 4:30-5:00 PM. If we really wanted to make it a full day, we'd book something in Cleveland for 10p, but as of yet there have been no offers. Phil Lara, where are you when we need you?
Did you get our last 2 CDs yet? You really should. Click over there to the right, and we'll have 'em mailed to your house before the dark cloud of post purchase anxiety washes over you like a depressive fog. Some writer guy called Introducing the Whiskey Daredevils "great" and some other critic guy called it "brilliant". I don't know about all that, but it's definitely worth what we're charging you for it.
