White Wedding - Peggy O' Neill's 8/13/11 Coney Island, New York
This was a very fun show for us and the band lucked out with the weather since we were playing an outdoor gig on a sunny August afternoon AMONGST NO SHADE that thankfully became cloudy, so much so that it went from Too Much Sun to Too Many clouds and we had to cut two songs from our last set as it actually started to drizzle. Once again even with the aid of my yellow milk crate the stage was of an awkward height and I was also fearful of falling backwards off the stage but these are the drummer's hang ups arent they ???, our singers had no problem jumping on and off for costume changes. We played very well and attracted quite an array of onlookers just outside the barricade who happened to be passing by.
This was a gig to remember and I look forward to our return.
Songs premiered at this show were "Anyway You Want It", "New Year's Day" and "Just Like Heaven" (well if this wasnt the premiere it has been years since we played it) featuring THE Robert Smith costume.
There wuz Pop Rocks Too.
To Al in Memorium.
