A Vacation Close to Home

 "We haven't played here in 10 years. Let's party."
- BC, 4/17/2015

Unofficially, the last time GM played was 12 years ago (almost to the date). Just found this beauty in the arguyves:

 I remember Bill being cool enough to get me in Sully's at the time, as I was a wee candyass 19 year old. I wasn't nearly hip enough to appreciate this B.L.O>Alibi (titled "Bunk" on CD)>Post>B.L.O.  I'll throw this show on archive.org if there's enough demand (i.e. if one person asks me).

A Simple Plan of Salvation

"Best shame ever. You're welcome"
-BC, 1/10/2015

The first show of 2015 is going to be hard to top. Playing two storefronts down from the old "CP Greenmore's" (the site of my first GM show), the band was feeling saucy and nostalgic; they treated the crowd to a thoughtful, playful, and well executed 2 sets of tunes (some of which have been on the shelf for quite a while).  After listening back to Shame, 95er>elephants and WYCH?  I can confidently say that this show will stay in my steady rotation for quite a while. It was simply a blast, and I'm really happy to share some of the highlights with my friends.
