Left on Red goes from 2 to 7 at Ace of Clubs!

Thank you friends for coming out
on a rainy Wednesday night to see Left on Red at Ace of Clubs!

Here is the re-cap:

-We got to the venue and it smelled a bit like a musty sock so I ran out to buy some Indian nagchampa incense while Kelly set up the sound and got the band situated. I think the incense totally brought up the vibration of the club and set the tone for an awesome night. We will do this at every show where we can from now on.

-It was the first time we played with this full band configuration: Mark Bosch on lead guitar, Ippei Ichimaru on Bass, Nick "Yuki" Miscusi on percussion and uke and Jessica Mease singing harmonies on "Shine" and "I can look at the Sun". The songs translated amazingly with a full band and it was so freeing to play with such amazing musicians!

-Surprise guest drummer, our friend Albert Bouchard (original drummer for Blue Oyster Cult) showed up with some friends and hopped on stage for the whole show and made the songs sound huge and AMAZING! We never even rehearsed with him but he is a long time friend of Kelly's and mine and is the sweetest most down to earth person. We love you Albert!

-The after party was a blast. I am still not sure how we organized 20 people to walk across town to the East Village to Yaffa Cafe. If you haven't been there yet you MUST go!!! I love the artsy, laid back atmosphere and Yaffa has excellent people watching, the food is so yummy and it comes out so super fast that it appears the chef's must have psychic abilities. The Sangria is pretty sneaky so watch Kelly observed after getting buzzed off one glass "It's not juice, but it pretends to be".
