Rye Grill & Bar 1/9/14: Post-Mortem

When I come home, cold and tired, it’s good to warm my bones beside the fire…“– ‘Time,’ Pink Floyd

Thank you, all of you, who braved the polar vortex to come rock out with us at the Rye Grill & Bar! Let’s not mix words, it was really fucking cold that night. So cold, in fact, that Jake himself didn’t make it to the show since the door to his cabin in the mountains was frozen shut. Whatever, he always seems to have some excuse.

The crowd response was a bit ‘chilly’ during the first set, but towards the end of the evening everyone seemed to be catching that warm and fuzzy feeling that Jake was churning out. However, by that point the band was out of material and began to take requests. “Rhiannon!” shouted an overzealous fan (who likely just saw Stevie Nicks’ cameo in the most recent episode of American Horror Story: Coven). Jake obliged. Yes, we freakin’ played Rhiannon. (Well, sort of.) But who are we to say no?

While it did eventually take an interpretive dance from Mussels to warm up the crowd, hearing them chant “ONE MORE SONG!” at the end of the night concluded the show on a high note.

We’ll see y’all again when this frost has finally melted! Cheers!
