Last night was a blast. We were pleased as punch to be a part of the Skylark’s annual Halloween Battle of the Bands, and we closed out the night to an incredibly enthusiastic and packed house. Though we didn’t win the coveted Golden Cowbell, we did have a fantastic reception from the crowd, who danced, shouted, and told us afterward that we were “amazing!” The grand prize went to another Seattle band, M Bison, who played as The Band. They rocked, and we bear them no ill will. None whatsoever. No, it’s totally cool!
All the acts were great, and we’re looking forward to putting our hat into the ring next year. Stay tuned!
In case you don’t know by now, 1) shame on you, and 2) the Skylark is a great venue, has no cover charge, and books great acts. Their food is delicious and plentiful, and they have ample parking. We played our first gig there, and we love it!!
