First Show

control_synthesizer_high_jpg.jpgI played live for the first time as a mem­ber of Subliminal Self last night. Got free Guinness out of it too.

We played at the Rain Nightclub which is a nice lit­tle place in Ohio City with com­fort­able chairs, a rock­a­bil­ly bar­tender and a cute girl bar­tender. Strangely sub­lime to ridicu­lous, it on­ly had PBR and Guinness on tap. We didn’t get paid for the gig, but we got free draughts and I man­aged to put down two Guinness be­fore they re­al­ized that the free drafts on­ly ap­plied to the PBR. I met a few peo­ple from SynthCleveland [a site I have vis­it­ed twice now] and then we start­ed the set.

Actually, for the first three songs I just sat on the side, I don’t know board parts for every­thing yet so I at­tempt­ed sound-techy­ness be­cause the acoustics were un­der­stat­ed­ly strange. We were sor­ta play­ing on a dance floor so the speak­ers weren’t fac­ing to­ward un­con­trol­lable crowd of fans at the bar who were held in check by our crack se­cu­ri­ty pla­toon. The set list start­ed with Nostalgia, then Resolution [my fa­vorite song] then Gravel Roads. Then there was a break while I was in­tro­duced and Greyson [who cut off all his hair] told the crowd that all of the sin­gle wom­en should di­rect them­selves to me. I have made it no se­cret that I’m on­ly in the band for the chicks. So then I bust­ed out my ‘board-fu on Forged from Steel and Empty December. Able-Bodied and Song for Tomorrow wrapped up the set and then we chat­ted a bit more be­fore I left.

Patrick promised me at least 4 or 5 girls from this gig, but I didn’t get even half of a girl. So I’m think­ing that I’ve been lied to.

  1. I told you, there wasn’t many girls there. Wait till next time, it’ll be a much big­ger show. With lots of chicks.
    We will pimp you out at that one, as well.

    Though I think if you gy­rate around while play­ing more, it’ll help
