So Saturday night, after dinner and a couple of games of pool, we headed to the Gothic Theatre, just as the doors were opening. Altough there was a line to get in, the guys managed to get right in. Because we had to be patted down before entering my sister and I had to go to the back of the line and wait for a woman. But the guys were in and secured good seats and we didnt’ have to wait long.
I can not tell you how much I love this band. I was first introduced to them when I moved to Arizona in 1999. The lead singer, Roger Clyne and the drummer, P.H. Naffah used to be part of a band called The Refreshments, which had one song on the radio that you may have heard. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen RCPM preform, but they are always great. Their sound is tight, they are so into the music and their fans. I think you’d be hard pressed to find a band who loves their fans as much and who’s fans are so rabidly loyal to them.
Last Saturday night, I was not dissapointed. After two opening bands (Chocolate Fountain and As Fast As, who were great) RCPM took the stage to play for two hours. They did it with enthusiam and appreciation for everyone there, of course the usual tequila shots were passed to Roger during the show, I swear I don’t know how that man continues to play let alone walk off the stage.
The pictures aren’t great, but we were lucky enough to get some great seats on the balcony for the show (thanks Kevin!).
I also managed to get some video of the band, but WordPress does not like Youtube so here are the links. The sound isn’t great as it was very loud in there and my digital camera couldn’t handle it so it’s distorted. But I’m proud of them and I did manage to get song from their new, not yet released album. Dont’ Wanna Know, Teenage Wasteland – Who cover, Undelae (spelling?) their new song. If you’ve never heard them or of them, I highly recommend them, one of their cds now!
