I’ve been to Louisville before; but it had been a long LONG time and I’m quite certain I was never in the area home to the Hideaway Saloon. I have to say, it is a cool little strip. Lots of restaurants and bars and lots of people out walking around and generally being shit faced and happy. It is a cool little area of town. I do not know the name of the area; but it appears to be a little hippie, college, party part of town and we loved it!
This is just a short, little, tiny blog commemorating a great show that was a damn fine time had by all.
Much love to the Hideaway Saloon for booking us (and other Nashville bands that we dig such as The Captain Midnight Band–shout out to those guys!).
Much love to the crowd who apparently have all kinds of mad stamina (that place goes WAY late night, holy shit, dude!) and showed us all kinds of love–I’m looking at you dancing girl, Scott, Mark, Thomas Power, Kansas and the day-glo birthday girls.
Love and respect to Mark for doing such a great job opening for us as well–thanks, Brosephus, we really enjoyed it!
And a final shout out to my bro from a million years ago, Shaun–good to see you, man! Nice to meet your wife and look forward to hearing from you soon!
So a quick rundown… We played a long night, over three hours. We made it to Louisville in about 2 and a half hours (not too many pee pee breaks, you see). We loved everybody we met and everyone loved us except for the piece of shit, dick-lacking, fucktard who keyed our van while we were making everyone inside smile with music–Hey asshole, instead of being a dipshit not even Buddha loves, why not go inside and listen to some tunes next time? Either that or wait for us to come out and witness you do it. Don’t be such a chickenshit… Own up to it, bitch.
We really did have a great time though. I wish we could have stayed longer; but we had to make it back… Next time, Louisville, next time… The beer selection there was pretty off the hook; so we’ll definitely chillax and toss back a couple and play sleepover next time when there aren’t so many prior commitments to getting home.
The band played excellently and we really locked in the groove most of the night–which is pretty cool, considering we’ve not really played together that long. Well done Q and Ken! You dudes, rock!
So anyway, I just wanted to acknowledge a really fine evening and make a note about a really cool little place–the Hideaway Saloon. If you find yourself in Louisville and you want to go check some music in a cool little place and you’re thinking you might wanna burn it down all night–then look no further than the Hideaway Saloon. Tell them jas patrick sent you and then fist pump and scream “JAS PATRICK RAWKS!” three times. You should totally do that.
Here’s some pics for that ass. Enjoy:
