2012 Leftovers

Hello Friends,
Left over pictures and videos are presented below for your enjoyment and review.  I wanted to send much, much thanks to the band and all friends and family for an unforgettable year.  The music and experiences produced by this band and our traveling circus have become some of my most cherished memories. I, for one am extremely grateful to have these folks around to share in those experiences. Here's hoping your 2013 is happy, healthy, and abundant with Whales of various tempos.

"I don't know what the fuck I'm doing up there.  But it's raw, and I love that about us"
-BC, 12/28/2012

The last GM show of 2012 was marked by some of the most ferocious playing I've seen this year. Don't believe me? The videos below are all the proof you need.  The band tackled Enemy and Althea with tenacity AND segacity. Those tunes left me looking like this on the dance floor:

Arch Street Tavern, Hartford, CT

Shame (1)
So Far Gone
Holy Ghost
Demon Theory>
Will of the Working Man>
Ooh Child (1)
Show Notes
(1) Contained "Auld Lang Syne" (Robert Burns) teases.

Chris Modeen opened.  Guy Malone opened for Uncle Sonny and Lazy Way Out.  No bass fires were reported at this show (or any show in 2012).


Guy Malone is penetrating and devastating!

Strange Days, Indeed.

Dave: "We will be playing only requests for the rest of the night"
Jake: "It'll be just like Storytellers, except we're not a big band"
Brett: "And we don't really have any stories"

At the end of what was probably the most tragic day in Connecticut's recent history, GM helped us take our mind off the news and boosted a little holiday spirit.  I think it was just what we all needed.

This show features the triumphant return of "Whale".  You know, the original fast paced punch-you-in-the-teeth version.  This is how I prefer my Whales.  After "Whale" is over I want to feel like this just happened:

Check out its seamless segue out of fan favorite "Enemy" below.
