The Rocketboys Are On Tour (part 5)

You know those old Southern houses? The ones with the the really big front porches with columns, and really high ceilings? Well, I’m sitting in one of those houses right now in (The Red Stick, thanks James) Baton Rouge, LA.

So far this tour has been going really well. We had a really surprisingly good show in Hot Springs, AR. Let’s talk about it.

We played once in Hot Springs a couple of years ago, and it’s gone in the record books as one of the worst shows ever. We played at this place called The Attic, in the middle of the dirty ghetto of Hot Springs. We show up and the owner makes perfectly clear that there will be nothing provided to the bands (including  water. really? Not even free water? Come on!).  The show starts and there are about 16 people there. But, that is including the bands. I think there was 1 person there that wasn’t in a band. At one point The Rocketboys went onstage to sing with our friends Ethan Durelle and there were more people on stage than there were in the crowd (if you can call it a crowd). The whole night was just really strange and awkward and dumb.

But, this latest time we played there, we had a great time. There was a great crowd, the owners were super nice and treated us really well. They actually bought one of our Vinyls for their son’s 12th birthday (which is in 8 years. they’re building up a pretty sweet collection for him).

Anyway, I’m going to start eating this delicious Cajun food.

I’ll leave you with this picture of The Rocketboys delivering the news in Topeka, KS several months ago.

Stay classy everybody . . .

  1. We had that exact same experience at the Attic. Did he also tell you that no one could smoke anywhere near the place and that all the bands HAD to watch all the other bands?

  2. Someone once told me that they banned that Attic from their life. It was pretty sad, but what’s a rock kid in Arkansas to do? 🙂

    Thanks for coming back to see us. It was a great show, and I hope to see you all soon!

  3. I feel a lot more men and women require to read this, very excellent info.
