Things are about to get a bit busier around here, for the next couple of months, so I'm gonna do my best to drop in some more regular updates as we roll along.
Last weekend, we played a technically-plagued set at The Rutledge that presented us with a few bumps in the road that we somewhat-ably maneuvered around...for the most part. Someone was filming(including the "Mexican Radio" debacle of my amplifier broadcasting Mariachi tunes throughout "How Does It Feel"), so I present to you The Great Affairs running through KISS's "Hard Luck Woman" live.
This past Saturday, we made our maiden voyage to Madisonville, KY to knock around a 2 hour acoustic set at The Crowded House.
Great joint. Cool folks. Good times.
We played a mess of new stuff for the first time, and made a few new friends who twisted our arms into doing 2 or 3 more that weren't actually on our set-list, but; being recognized professionals(that's right), we were able to deliver the goods(except for Pantera, which I'm not sure would have translated in the acoustic setting had I known the lyrics or chord progression to a single one of their tunes anyway). What we did play looked a little something like this:
SICK FOR LOVE
HARD LUCK WOMAN
NEEDLES AND PINS
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE
MAKE IT OUT
CHANGE OF HEART
SHAME ON YOU
TAKE IT ON THE RUN
ISN'T SHE GOLD
I CAN'T TAKE IT
I WANT YOU TO WANT ME
HOW DOES IT FEEL
LIE TO ME
GO YOUR OWN WAY
LITTLE RED CORVETTE
CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Like I said, pretty much anything goes at these shows...CHEAP TRICK, REO SPEEDWAGON, KISS, MELLENCAMP, BRYAN ADAMS, PRINCE, STEALER'S WHEEL, TOM PETTY, FLEETWOOD MAC...You never know what we might attempt.
Southgate House, you're up next this Saturday, June 8th. 10PM until the cows come home, or thereabouts.
In the meantime, I'm off to commence work on another track for the Tommy Edwards record.
