4-7-2006: Scolari's Office
w/ Red Pony Clock, Ryan McPhun and the Ruby Suns, Invisible Airplanes
Ryan McPhun and the Ruby Suns played next, and they are from New Zealand, and their van caught fire and all their instruments burned up, but they still made it out to San Diego and played a great set. Apparently one of the guitars only partially burned, as the guitarist was still able to play this piece of charred-up guitar-shaped firewood. Now THAT my friends is TOTAL ROCK!
Secret Apollo played next, and not everyone ran for the hills. Our set was rated as our "second best show" from Secret Apollo critic and connoisseur Bryan.
Invisible Airplanes / Earnest Rapture closed the set, choosing to rock it electronic-style. Ever the trooper, singer Cara braved sickness and missing firewire cables to make it happen.
PS Much thanks to our friends in Swim Party for the support!

The only other interesting haps was that I survived a stare-down with a freaked-out 72 pound tweeker in girl jeans (yes, Tweeky was a boy). Despite this victory, I must have looked pretty pathetic to people this night because I had no less than 3 offers to help me with my amp. I thought having wheels was supposed to make it easier to move! Lies! I was able to convice two of them I could do it myself, but the last guy moved me aside and played roadie. Thanks, dude. And thanks to Swim Party for taking a band outing =)
