Our long delayed appearance at this monthly art/goth/industrial performance event finally came together.
Downtown producer Jonathan caught a set by Makeshift at an open mic last fall, and shared his vision for this monthly event, and invited us to take part. We had our reservations, and some schedule conflicts with initial booking dates, but we made it for a 10pm set on sunday 3/26 at a heavy metal bar in a strip mall.
We did a short set starting out with classic barbershop and segueing through some of our popular doo-wop and concluding with Bohemian Rhapsody and Zombie. The crowd went nuts. We were amplified louder than we’ve ever been. The occasional screaming feedback only adding to the ambience. The crowd danced, they sang along, they rushed the stage. Here’s Pete’s pithy assessment:

I will have to say that I was a bit of a skeptic regarding our gig last night….I will say it may have been one of the best audiences we have sang in front of. I was especially proud of our group and that we could sing through 2 women kissing, a guy with no shirt on but black wings on his back and another girl hitting a girl on the backside with a whip! Did I mention the guy with the rope around his neck! What a RIOT!!!!!!
