Those that know me pretty well, know I have problems sleeping. So here I am @ 2am reviewing lyrics for tomorrow night’s show @ Whiskey Dix w/ Lovehog. By the way, we’re pulling out 15 songs for this show. 8 originals & 7 covers.
5 of these songs are spankin’ new, including one original – Radio Transmission Song. This makes me happy like a school kid when the bell rings to start summer vacation. Check the SONG CHRONOLOGY PAGE for more info on this lovely number. You can also hit up the MYSPACE PAGE to hear an early version of it.
Anyhow, if you did take a look at that song page, you might have a desire to ask, “Why so many covers, Scott?” Well, the reason is that we have a big 4 hour show on August 21st and want to try out some of these new covers on all of you wonderful humans that are awesome enough to give us your time and ears.
Of course, I ramble – as it is my nature; and with that in mind, here’s more. Rory let me know about a post-show blog post that our pals, The War Office posted about the show we did with them & Jak Locke back on the 24th of July. Here’s what they thought of our 9 song show.
“City Zoo (that’s a pretty good name for a band) started the evening. Goodness, this band has a serious following. They managed to pack the place with their friends, family, and fans. That’s pretty cool if you can get this many people to a gig. After the first couple of songs, these guys were really warmed up and started to really kick it in. Me, Kelly, and Dale are really digging what they’re playing. Suddenly, it hits me: City Zoo sounds like a pissed off Weezer. I totally mean that as a complement. These guys fill in what is missing with Weezer. Good stuff!”

Don’t forget to show up to WHISKEY DIX’S on Friday August 7th @ 9pm and make your own assumptions/judgments. Weather we’re too loud or too angry or too drunk, we’re always going to have a blast and want all of you that come to this FREE show to have a damn good time!
I guess that’s it for now. Nighty, night, NOLA.
