Sunday, June 16th 2002 @ James O'Looney's Graduation Party!
   With James O'Looney on second guitar.
   We went on a little past 5:30
Notes: This was a blast. We played outdoors with James switching between rythem and lead parts. Summer is just starting for us and playing surf outdoors on such a hot day just felt right. We tried a to play little more mellow/more trad and it sounded great, especially on songs like Voo Doo Juice and Walk Don't Run.

   With some cover band. Two sets.
   Arrived at 1:45 PM, played later.
Notes: Another fun outdoors-in-the-sun party. I've decided that this is the way surf should be. The people loved it, it was a blast for everybody. I'm not sure the exact order of the songs in the setlists, especially the first one.

   $5 at the door
   Starts at 8pm, All-ages
   Flyer
Notes: It was fun playing with the Volcanics and the Surf Kings, both great bands in their own ways. It was also cool to finally play at the Che Cafe.

Sunday, Dec. 8th 2002 @ The Xanth!
    7PM - 11PM $7
    "ROCK/PUNK"
    DEVOTCHKA(DENVER)
    SAVING FACE, BLUNTSIDE
Notes: Saving Face didn't play, their friends did. Doesn't matter, they sucked, as did Bluntside. Devotchka was AWESOME! I was kind of skeptical because I had listenned to their MP3s and I didn't really like the production on their vocal tracks. Lets just say that live everything was awesome about them. In ode to them we've changed the title of Boris Biohazard to Hey Devotchka. Amanda Woodruff played synth with us. We sounded pretty damn good, too bad there was such a small crowd. Setlist: Voo Doo Juice, Coated In Oil, Devotchka Rocks (aka Hey Devotchka aka Boris Biohazard), Well Trained to Play Catch, Coca-Cola Death Squad, My Barometer Collection, Walk Don't Run, Avanti, Filibuster on the Dance Floor, Surfari, Popcorn, It Came From Red Alert, The Wedge, The Long Ride Home (spaghetti western), Happy in a Cage.

Friday, December 27th @ Soma!
    $6 at the door
    7:30 PM
    MONSTERS FROM MARS
    DEKOYS
    NOWHERESVILLE
    TEN TO NONE
    ALTAIRE 6
    OBLIGERANT
Notes: It was awesome to finally play with Altaire 6. Those guys are rad. Things were hectic with all the extra members. Amanda Woodruff on keys, Alex Jones on rhythm guitar, and a surpise (even to us) appearance by Chris Hampton on saxaphone. We tried some new songs which didn't turn out that great, mainly because there was nothing in the monitors and the sound guys had all the levels way off. We were tired and things were unorganized, but the place was packed and the crowd was dancing like crazy. Mission: SUCCESS! Setlist: Happy In a Cage, The Wedge, Well Trained to Play Catch, Voo Doo Juice, You Better Tell Me Now, Hey Devotchka, My Barometer Collection, Give Him a Great Big Kiss, Telstar

Sunday, March 23th 2003 @ Che Cafe!
   with Train Vs. Auto, The Altaire 6, the Creepy Creeps!
   8pm - $5 - All Ages
Notes: What an amazing show. This was our first show with our new drummer Paul. We didn't even ever get a chance to practice with him as a full band. Lets just say that besides on Voo Doo Juice, you couldn't tell. This was one our best shows ever. Amanda (Agent Beta) played the Farfisa and Scott played the theremin for part of Telstar (the monitors were busted though, so he couldn't really hear himself that well). There was lots of dancing going on and the crowd demanded an enore of Misirlou. I (1460) passed out during the middle of it, we went nuts, and we kept going! The other bands were amazing as well. We hope to do it again at the end of June. Setlist: Happy in a Cage, Voo Doo Juice, Hey Devotchka, Well Trained to Play Catch, Yozora No Hoshi, My Barometer Collection, The Long Ride Home, Filibuster on the Dance Floor, Popcorn, Pollution in the Ocean, You Better Tell Me Now, The Wedge, Coca-Cola Death Squad, It Came From Red Alert, Telstar. Encore: Misirlou into Hava Nagila!

Notes: Skateboard Heaven is a rad place for shows! It had a definate footclan feel to it. This was an all day thing with bands and skateboarding going on simultaneously. Before us the MiGs played. They are a surf band of amazingly talented musicians. Visit their website. Their rendition of Immigrant Song was very entertaining. We closed up the show.

Thursday, September 18th 2003 @ The Muse

w/ the Lowest Common Denominators and somebody else
All Ages, Free
Notes: Ok, so Amanda, Paul, and I show up and none of the other bands are there yet. We're told that the show is supposed to start at 9PM. We wait around. Rad kids show up and hang out outside.. 10PM rolls around, no sign of any of the other bands, no sign of Scott (with all our stuff).. The guy in the Muse says that since nobody's here he's just going close up! We ask him to wait a little bit. Scott shows up soon after--his Scooter had died on the way home from school. We then packed all our stuff into the back of this record shop and played a very fun set. It was a lot of fun! As we kept playing more and more people started coming in. There was dancing. I am very thankful to the guy working there for staying open and letting us play. Thanks to everybody who came out for coming out!
