Sunshower Tour w/ Regina Spektor (Day 30)
Fancy Colors goes Bi-Coastal! (Silverlake Lounge)
I think Zac slept at his all-time buddy of all-time Fernando's house, and then picked us all up in the morning, including his favorite brother Mark. (yay!) We have the night off and Mark Colwell is here....Time to get Bryn out of the office!
...and get to work on learning some Fancy Colors songs.
mmmmmm...eh. Let's just stick him on saxophone...
(kidding of course!)
Bryn happens to be a Rennaisance man and full of raw talent. (But he DID play sax. I wasn't kidding about that part.) We've asked him to play with us at Silverlake Lounge...For those who don't know, "FANCY COLORS" is a side project featuring Zac on lead vocals/guitar, Panda on bass, Me on drums, and anyone else we feel like spending time with. Tonight that happens to be Bryn Mooser. He also has his own band called "PROUD MARY" y'all should check out.
We had to start the day off right....
Next, we sat around a Mexican joint (Tacos, Tacos, Tacos, Tacos) all day. Literally, ALL fucking day. We met a pair of sisters who had recently done jail time and liked to go hiking. They stayed with us at the taco place for a few hours until they realized they were staying at a taco place for a few hours.
We watched the sunset, had another soft shell chorizo, and then drove to Silverlake Lounge. We were excited to be playing our very first West Coast Fancy Colors show and had an impressive guest list at the door. Read something like this:
& Bill Cosby
That gave us some clout at the club (as well as a few extra drink tickets) so we set up and watched while 8 or 9 people rushed the stage. It was MAYHEM!
In all honesty, we DID have some really close friends at the show and we appreciate it. Especially JESS! :)
We made some good music and then made a get-away for the Warner Music party downtown. We hung with our new friend Danielle Bond and met some people, drank a little, blah, blah, blah...oh shit! ALL our stuff is still at the club....hopped in the Blaze and Dukes of Hazard(ed) our way back to Silverlake. We made it just in time and packed the stuff up.
A perfect mast.
On the drive back to the hotel, I blew a GaskeTronic 5000 and embarrassed myself in front of Mark. (sorry Zac!)
Tonight, we sleep. Tomorrow, we play Oakland......comin at ya sex machine mike!
