elephant talk-indie music fest

AC was awesome!  Lots of great music, great people.  Alex Vans and Adrian Hardkor sounded fantastic, to name a couple, and Jerry Ryan kicked butt putting everything together.  We played at La Grande Fromage and had great response, thanks everyone for watching our set!  We'll definitely make it out again next year, if things fall into place.  (And assuming we can find a babysitter for our new youngest member.  Yes, Tini, we may have to make him an honorary pot & pan banging, singing & wailing baby musician.  It just might have to happen.)

I have pics!  But can't figure out how to download them on my new computer without crashing it yet.  Sigh.

Great show, thanks again everyone, band and otherwise, for all the hard work and awesome rockin' outness.

Off and running (well almost)

We all took off this lazy summer afternoon from work so we could rehearse one last time before our big New Jersey debut tomorrow!

We're apparently playing at the "Boneyard Stage" -- sounds ominous around noon time.  Due to some last minute shuffling, this means we'll be leaving DC around 5am tomorrow (UGH!). What to do though, got to beat that beach traffic.

More about our adventure once we return. See you in AC!

The Crash Take Off crafts.

So the Crash Takeoff in addition to being serious rockers has also taking up crafting.

That's right we're that cool.  See below what we do when we take the week off from practice.

Even Leeloo the Absentee Cat makes an appearance

For example, here is as he Chet shows apprehension as he stitches his racoon keychain...
I think he's doing a fine job.

We're playing in Atlantic City!!

Audrey's Golden Birthday

The very fabulous Audrey White, lead singer and guitarist, celebrated her 29th on the 29th of June! In celebration, we went and did what most middle/highschool boys do to have a good time: LASER TAG.
It was basically Awesome, the Red Team (that of the birthday girl itself) won and the rest of us were relegated to 2nd and 3rd place. Celebration continued with excellent eats at Log Dog Pizza and boooze at P. Brennan's.  Happy Birthday Auds!
