Hey guy's. Hope all is well in HOLDCELL fan land. Last night we had a show in Lewisville, Tx. at a club called Hat Tricks Sports Bar & Grill. It was a wednesday night, so, there weren't many people there. In fact, there were only around 15 or 20 people. So, needless to say, it was a slow night. Now granted, you alway's wanna play in front of people and it was a huge step down from Tuesday night after opening for Fuel and the after party. But, we still got to do what we love to do. You just have to expect that sometimes. I'm looking at it as a show to help keep our chops up and to stay loose. And the people that were there loved us. So we can't complain. We got back to our motel in Ardmore around 3:30am and crashed around 4:30 or so. I must have been exhausted because I slept till freakin 2pm today. And the only reason I got up was because Evan knocked on our door to tell us we had to go load in at 2 Frogs for the Brett Michaels show tomorrow night. So, we went to do that and got a bite to eat. 2 Frogs has great food by the way. It's around 6pm and we're done. Just chillin at the room. Evan, Benji, and I may go to Winstar Casino and do a little gambling later. I'm itching to play some real poker (Texas Hold'em). Lee will probably stay here and chill. He's fighting a cold. So we're pumping him full of vitamin's and cold medicine so he can rock tomorrow night. He was feeling really bad last night but still sang and played like a champ. He's one of the toughest dudes I know. Aww man, I wish you guy's could've been with us tuesday night at Denney's after the show. I shot a little video of the event which I will post later. But, Benji Taylor is a NUT! That dude was drunk as a 3 eyed fish and had us rolling in the floor laughing. He and the manager Stephanie with IMI were going back and forth all night. He did a cart wheel in the middle of the highway, which wasn't bad at all. But that was quite the treat. Now a little about the staff here at the motel in Ardmore, Ok. They're all sweet as can be and most of em are new huge fans after seeing us at the Fuel show.
They've all been stopping us and wanting autographs and wanting cd's which we gladly conceded. But they've been killing us in the mornings with "room service". We're in a band. We live the night life. We want to be left alone in the mornings. So last night I put the "do not disturb" sign on the door thinking that would keep them away. But, nope, not at all. 9:30 this morning.... knock knock knock.......... "room service". I didn't answer. So they come on in anyway. They gave us some towels and left. But by this point I'm awake and furious. So I get up and go out to the hall way to give the lady a piece of my mind. Her cart is in the hallway but she's not. Then, I saw her master key on her cart. So, yep, I took it. At least the motel had another 15 or 20 minutes of peace. Me and Benji did a quick little video blog of the event and went back to sleep. Well, I think that's about it.
Thanks for keeping in touch and I'll talk to you guy's tomorrow.
