So...as you can see I've been quite the slacker on my blog. Sorry! Finally getting into the swing of things and learning how to juggle, life, work and mommy-hood. It took a while, but I'm trying my very best to get back into the blogging world.
And what better way to get back into the saddle of blogging than a good ol' fashioned rock and roll show? Note: The first blog back was going to be about stupid Axl Rose and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame debacle, but I was seriously so irritated and disappointed, that I couldn't even write anything worth while.
This last Sunday, I got my lazy ass out of my sweats and dragged my husband's friend, Mark, to see the Charm City Devils at the Basement. Hubby was watching the little man so I could go out for the night, so Mark volunteered to accompany me on this fine night of rocking. And rock we did.
Thankfully, the guys in Charm City Devils didn't let this hinder their performance. It was full throttle right from the beginning, and they certainly made the very best of the situation. They hit the stage with songs off their new album, Sins, including their single "Man of Constant Sorrow." And just like Rob told me I would, I loved the new songs. Sprinkled into their set were also songs from their first album, "Let's Rock N Roll" and a Black Keys cover.
That says a lot about the integrity of these guys. Not only do they put out some of the best rock and roll out there (better than 98% of the shit you hear on the radio currently), they also care about their fans. They're down to earth even to their crazy, stalker fans (totally calling myself out here....). Even though there wasn't the crowd that they deserved at the show, they still gave it their all and performed like there were 30,000 people in front of them. I'm already planning a road trip to see them again this summer.
