So Message of Love is playing at Bimbo’s this Saturday night. I believe a few tickets are available at TicketWeb, though they won’t be for long. We’ll be opening for Tainted Love, who has this amazing ability to sell out two consecutive nights at the large venue every damn time they book there.
Playing at Bimbo’s is always fun, but I hate the fact that I can’t load out while the main act is onstage, as this means my options are to a) leave immediately after we play, b) load my gear into my car and leave it parked on the street while I enjoy a beer or two with my friends, or c) stay at the club until the bloody end. The last time I opted for c, I didn’t get out of there until after 2AM, which is waaaaaaaay too late for an East Bay dad in his early 40s. Option b sucks because I can’t enjoy anything when I’m paranoid about my gear sitting in the back of my car on a city street. So I pretty much have to go with option a, which is why I don’t put too much effort into promoting shows like this. Really, I do enjoy these things; I’d just rather see you when I’m not in a hurry to get out of there.
So: Message of Love. Tainted Love. This Saturday. Bimbo’s. Get tickets early. Or, don’t. (How’s that for enthusiasm?)
UPDATE: Some pictures from the show.
