Veni Vidi Vacate

We Came, We Saw, We Left

OK, the Latin might not be exact.

We played our World Preview this last weekend at Demicon to a bunch of poor souls we lured into the room with the promise of chocolate. That is my story and I'm sticking to it, do NOT try to confuse me with the facts.

I have no good reason why so many folks came to see us play, but they did indeed show up and for some even odder reason seemed to actually like us. I will say that if guitar player with the Telecasters hadn't messed up so much, it would have been a perfect show. Songs we knew crumbled before us, songs we had never done right before rippled across the crowd in a perfect ripply motion. Pants were worn, guitars were brandished, women swooned (just not in the room we were in), boogie was woogied, and rock was rolled. IT'S ALIVE, ALIVE !!!

Beware ... the World Premiere is coming very soon to a Duckon near, well, near Chicago. I guarantee that all of the above will happen again ... wait ... I promise everything except the pants. There is never a guarantee on that.
