becky does vegas

one of the new promo pics featuring The Hat

I'm insanely excited about tonight.

Not only do I get to see becky in my own backyard, but I'm going to get to hook up with some great friends and fans - some I haven't seen in ages and some I'll be pressing the flesh with for the first time.


The cherry on top of it all is that Roi and Dave and (hopefully) Brittney* will be there as well so it has all the potential of a historic "becky meets the vibemerchants" moment. (See, the short term vibemerchant goal is to open for becky. Long term is them opening for us.) I've tried to subtley suggest that Roi seek Keanu out and thank him for inspiring me to play bass, but I'm pretty sure he's going to be too distracted by Rebecca. I can't wait to see what 6-string virtuoso-Dave thinks of Paulie's shredding, and I'm hoping to get Brittney to absorb some of Rob's greatness by osmisis.

By the way, big bold print on the tickets says NO CAMERAS so don't hold your breath for shots from the show, but I will have the camfone just in case.

Of course there will be drunken audblogging.

*OK, Brittney is the girl drummer that we audtioned the night I came back from the last becky show and she isn't actually a Vibemerchant, yet. But I'm going to work on it. It seems to me that even though she's a beginnner (drum-wise anyway. She's a freaking jazz guitarist so I KNOW she's got musical talent), if we had spent the month of waiting for drummers to SHOW UP working with her and teaching her the songs we'd be done with drummerquest. And frankly, I like her a lot and want to work with her in some capacity. Maybe an all-girl Dogstar cover band?

Gotta admit I'm digging the sound of an all girl Dogstar cover band. Would love to join but I can't sing, I don't play any instruments and I'm as talented as a grape. Probably less so, at least you can peel a grape and they do turn into some fine wine. Oh well, I am good at shaking my ass if you ever need back up dancers. ;-)

Already counting the minutes, Krix?
The waves of excitement have swept over the East Coast already, Nudel, over the Atlantic all the way to Europe, right, Julie!?

Hey Krix!
Have a great time at the show tonight! Hopefully they'll do something special for your birthday....like...pull you up on stage and let Keanu play his bass for you...or let you play bass for Keanu...either way it works ;)

in your own backyard? u don't mean ACTUALLY do u? wow. That'd be pleasant though...
Although unsafe for keanu since I probably wouldn't be able to restrain myself from kidnapping him, whether he knows kung-fu or not!lol :)

Posted by: Cornflakes on April 16, 2004 03:45 PM

AIEEEEE! Can't wait to hear the drunken audblogs and see the illegal camfone photos! :) Have fun with all the friends and fans and, of course, Keanu! Work your magic and get Keanu to say something on the audblog! That would be sweet!

Posted by: sta-cie on April 16, 2004 03:52 PM

yes, "backyard" is a figure of speech. Green Valley is on the WAY opposite side of the valley from me.

OK, I'm freaking READY and sitting in my office waiting for someone to come before I can leave. Grrrr...

As cool as it would be, I could never ask Keanu to audblog. Once I explained what the heck it was (recording instantly posted to the web) I bet that would turn him right off, or I'd have to sign something.

Posted by: krix on April 16, 2004 03:55 PM

LOL, yes, I felt *some* waves here, Niobe :-)
*cough* ;-)

Oh & Nudel, that's sooooo sweet! :-D
Listen, I don't know how others *without* sound feel, but please don't spend your whole night typing for my sake, OK? I don't want you to get blue fingers!
Just write down the *important* parts (like when something 'extra' exciting happens), and only if you really want too/if you're able! I'm the dork that doesn't have sound, it shouldn't have an effect on the way you spend your evening, LOL! *smooooooch*

*sigh* Oi! Krix!!!! All I can say to you is 'Eeeee'!!!! And, please drive carefully & remember to breath and stuff!

I've been in a "I Lust Robbie" mood all day after seeing these new becky pics - especially the b&w one.

I hope Brittney works out in spite of her name. I mean, her mother just couldn't have known.

Have a great time!

Posted by: Chianti on April 16, 2004 06:20 PM

yea, i know it's not in your backyard lol. I was just going off on a crazy day dream............. sigh

Posted by: Cornflakes on April 16, 2004 06:39 PM

Hey! I like Britney.
