LAST SHOW OF THE SUMMER

Hey all,

We threw it down yesterday down at Memory Lanes and it was damn good time! Thanks to Memory Lanes and all of you that showed. That was actually our last local show for the summer, but if you want to catch one last time until the Fall come on down to the Think Green Fair held in Rochester, MN. I'll post the details when I get 'em but that fair is on June 26th. Make the trip!

In other news, we are prepping new tracks for our third record tentatively titled, "Nothin' To Hear, Here". Keep your eyes and ears peeled...

Hope you're all well. Have a blast of a Summer!

TARGET FIELD

I'd like to say, HELL YES! Outdoor baseball in Minnesota about to get under way and I couldn't be more psyched about it. I've been through the park and can't say enough about how no stone was left unturned. I have yet to try the array of concessions but give me time, give me time. Today the Twins take on the St. Louis Cardinals in the first of two exhibition games... I sure hope we christen the new park with a ass whoopin'! Eat it Pujols!

TRYIN' TO DO STUFF TOUR RECAP


ELVIS RADIO SIRIUS XM - LIVE FROM GRACELAND


So, tour has been pretty sweet. Got to see a bunch of friends as well as make a bunch of new ones. Texas was a whirlwind! Played, rocked and partied hard. I'd like to give a few shout outs! KC and Vicki and everyone at the Liberty, we salute you! Yase, you are the fucking best and a great ambassador to your city! Lori, great to see and you'll probably beat us home! Also, a shout out to Eric's aunt, Ev for letting us hole up!




THE WHITE WATER TAVERN
- LITTLE ROCK, AR -


Monday, March 22: The White Water Tavern
This might just be heaven on earth! What an incredible joint. The staff, clientele and all those that put up with watching us thanks so much! We had nothing short of a blast at this fine establishment and hope to go back! Thanks Jason White for helping us set this one up!




RENDEZVOUS
- Smells Like Freedom! Memphis, TN -


Tuesday, March 23: Nocturnal
We started our arrival with a couple racks of ribs from the world famous Charles Vergo's Rendezvous. I cannot tell you enough that this is a must stop if you ever venture into this great city! Sadly, two days after we dined here the proprietor Charles Vergo's passed away. Rest in Peace my man and thanks for creating one of the best rib joints known to man!

After we passed out for awhile from our Rendezvous food coma we made our way to the show at Nocturnal. We met back up with fellow Minnepolitan's, Jake Dilley and The Color Pharmacy and locals The Stand Ins. What a great time we had and appreciate all that came out. The show attendance wasn't much but then again we were up against Megadeth across the street.


GRACELAND
- THE KING RESTS -

Wednesday, March 24: Day Off In Memphis, TN
What a jam packed, great fucking day! Woke up at a reasonalble time and made our way down the the Gibson Custom factory where we had a scheduled tour for noon. Seeing first hand the care and craft they put into these guitars makes you appreciate the sticker shock on these gems. They don't allow photography, so no snap shots were taken to show you the genius that goes into making these bad boys.

After being blown away by the Gibson factory we met up with the one-and-only Peter Budd. If you don't know this dude, do yourself a favor and track him down while your in Memphis. You'll be a better person for knowing him. He took us over the Gus's Fried Chicken for lunch. Much like Rendezvous, our appetites and tastes buds were TKO'd. Crack Chicken! So fucking tasty.

From here he made our way south to the legendary Graceland, home of the King. Thanks to Kate Mariani for getting us in touch with Tony Yoken and Big Jim Sykes at Elvis Radio Live from Graceland Sirius XM. Not only did we get to do a small interview for them but they also hooked us up with the grand package tour of Graceland... no, we weren't able to go upstairs, but everything else was at our fingertips. Thanks a million!!!



THE RIG ON THE STEPS GRACELAND


After a 3.5 hour tour of Graceland we decided to make our way back downtown for some libations on Beale Street. Here we met up The Color Pharmacy dudes and Peter Budd's amazing wife Susanne. We pounded some Big Ass Beale Beers and made our way down to one of the most bad ass bars this town has to offer, Earnestine & Hazels. This used to be an old brothel back in the day and I believe they have done anything to the interior since the fucker was built. What a Joint.




As the night made it's way to morning we walked our way back to the hotel, but not without one final stop at the Lorraine Motel to pay our respects to one of the greatest humans to have walked our earth, Martin Luther King Jr.



THE LORRAINE MOTEL

Again, Thank you so much Peter & Susanne Budd, Big Jim Sykes, Tony Yoken, Kate Mariani, The Standins, Rendezvous, Gus's, Earnestine & Hazel's and Nocturnal for making Memphis so fucking epic!


Thursday, March 25: St. Louis, MO
The Way Out Club is quite an impressive bar. Tons of shit to look at, tons of old school arcade games, but lacking customers. Tonight we played to our friends and tour mates Jake Dilley and The Color Pharmacy, two of their friends and bar owners. Maybe next time St. Louis, maybe next time...



Friday, March 26: Waterloo, IA
Spicoli's was cool joint as well and the staff were amazing! My dart game on the other hand failed me this night much like the crowd. All Rattle and Dust, you guys were awesome! Excited for our show in MPLS at the Hex!


Satuday, March, 27: Chicago, IL
Man, we were somewhat down on our luck after the past few nights and in desperate need of a pick me up. Well, Chicago, you fucking delivered! Thanks so much to all of you that came out to support us and those whom we were fortunate to convert! BIG thanks to The Textbook Committee for setting this up and putting on another lights-out performance! Also, a high-five to everyone at Reggie's!

We would also like to extend our gratitude to our friends Pat & Beth Kennedy for letting us crash out at their place and congratulations on your new buddle of joy! You saved us!


Well, that about wraps it up! Excuse me if I left anyone out and again thank you to everyone that made our two week jaunt so memorable and incredibly intoxicating! We owe you all a drink. Keep checking back. We have some local dates throughout this Spring and will be making a trek through the midwest to Colorado and back, so come on out dammit!

DENTON, TX

DENTON, TEXAS

So, we've spent quite a few hours on the road learning how to not enjoy one another, but I feel we have succeeded because we can now tolerate each other 7.34% of the time... not too bad. We ended up stopping by Jerry Erickson's ranch today to check out William, Flora's horse, and he seems to be enjoying himself 7.34% of the time, but I have faith he'll pull through.

We shove off to Austin tomorrow, to impress no one, but will be victorious in having much more fun than any NYC band trying to be the next big dud. Or any band from MPLS trying to sound like a NYC band, trying to be the next big dud... good luck assholes.

So, here's to us having a good time. We party like we mean it!

Palmer's Bar


So last night we had the privilege of playing at Palmer's and want to thank Chooglin' for inviting us to share the floor with them. I also want to thank the entire staff for their generous hospitality and great history lessons of the joint. Chris, I want to know more!

I have been in the bars now for a good decade and I hang my head in shame by saying last night was the very first time I had ever set foot in Palmer's. Yes, I am a moron for taking this long to witness the incredible environment of this joint. No longer dammit! I vow to make this watering hole one of my regulars. Way too good of a place to pass up!

Bob Tema has some great shots of the entire show up on Flickr. Check them out HERE.

Last night also marked a changing of the guards of sorts. Jake will be hanging up his bass for awhile. He has decided to step a side while we hit the road. He and his wife have recently purchased a new home and the timing of that in conjuction with our forthcoming tour have posed some complications. So, in the interim we have held Mr. Eric Reyers at gun point and forced him to learn our songs. I will attest that this dude sure knows how to slap a mean bee-ace, but the jury is still out on how well he can throw down when it comes to pounding the suds. We'll have a plenty of time to figure that out though while beating the pavement to and from Texas.

So, with that said, we like to welcome Eric aboard to Camp Evening Rig, but more importantly would like to thank Jake for all of his contributions up to this point and that we'll miss you out there on the road you ol' koot!

Oh, and PS: Happy Valentine's Day.

LIQUOR RUN


GRANDPA MILLER
( THE ONE CLOSEST TO THE TAP... OF COURSE )


Hey folks-
Well, I successfully made through 31 days sans booze. Yeah for me! That all comes to a screeching hault this evening dammit! Not quite sure where I'll end up but where ever it may be, watch out because my liver is strong and my tolerance is low!

Anyhow, we are in the midst of getting things ready for the road. Very excited to get out of town and get into the south. All the rock, beer, BBQ and the wide open roads with temperatures in the 70's... shit yeah!

When we get back we are planning on drumming up 6 or so songs for an EP to be released a some point this summer. We plan on this being more of a stripped down, back porch, swinging party type of EP. More to come.

We suggest you give these fellas a good listen: ALL RATTLE AND DUST

THAT'S A WRAP




WELL, JANUARY 2010 HAS A FEW GOOD HOURS LEFT AND THIS MONTH HAS PROVED TO BE ONE OF OUR BUSIEST MONTHS. I BELIEVE WE HAVE PLAYED IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER EVERY WEEKEND THROUGH THIS 'COLD AS A WITCHES TIT' OF A MONTH. NOT BAD, NOT BAD.

LAST NIGHT WE PLAYED AT THE TRIPLE ROCK WITH COLDER IN MOSCOW AND THE LOVE CARS AND IT WAS QUITE A HOOT. WE PLAYED, WHAT I FEEL, WAS ONE OF OUR BETTER SHOWS. SO IF YOU WERE THERE, THANKS FOR PUTTING UP WITH US! I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK GABRIEL FROM THE LOCAL BAND 4 ON THE FLOOR FOR HELPING US TAKE'R DOWN ON GODDAMN... SOME MAD COWBELL SKILLS! THANKS BROTHER. IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD THESE GUYS YET, CHECK THEM OUT HERE. WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF SETTING SOMETHING UP WITH THESE FELLAS IN APRIL, SO KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS PEELED!

ANYWAY, THAT'S ABOUT IT. READY TO TAKE ON FEBRUARY FOR A GOOD 28 DAYS. THE THAW IS COMING SOON...

NEXT UP: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13 AT PALMER'S BAR WITH CHOOGLIN' AND CITY ON THE MAKE.

STAY WARM GOOD PEOPLE!
