We had a show on Thursday, July 15th at the Way Out Club with Marz 88 and others, but we never got to even bring our equipment inside. Apparently the club double booked us with an out-of-town touring act and since we are the locals, we get bumped.
When we showed up we didn’t recognize any of the other bands, so we decided to head inside before unload our stuff. I saw Bob (the owner) moving some chairs around, so I went to him to say hello and to see if he needed any help.
We started chatting about how long it had been since we played the Way Out Club, and I mentioned that the last time we were there was with Marz 88. When he told me they were playing there next week I knew something was wrong.
After a minute of confusion Bob and I headed off to his computer to find out what his schedule said. And the Marz 88 show was on the books. So who were these other guys?
Apparently, they booked their show the same night, and since they are a touring act they got to keep the show. Not that big of a deal, other than scrambling to let everyone we knew that we were not playing, we got the night off.
I felt bad for Marz 88, they apparently had a show booked for that evening at the Library, but since it shut down a few weeks before they rescheduled for the Way Out Club. Two canceled shows in one evening, someone is telling you something.
We are in the process of booking our next batch of local shows, so stay tuned and we hope to see you there.
