Also titled: Hot Hands go on a mini-tour Day 2.

After doing some thrifting in Tallahassee we drove over to Jacksonville to do, well, the same thing. We found Lomax Lounge in Little Five Points- where there's some music venues and "pricey" pop culture/antique shops. We drove around randomly because we had time before the show was supposed to get started. I commented to Kristin on how I wondered if the outdoor ice cream shop Dreamette was still around. It's the place Crowsdell named their first album after. Whammo we drove right by it. We were running late so we didn't get to stop. Next time because now I can remember how to get to it.

We were first to arrive at Lomax. There wasn't too much going on and I got a little worried nothing was happening other than a DJ was set up onstage. As soon as I saw guitars and amps start to load in did I relax a little. Soon all the bands were there: Timecat (who we played with last time we came to Jacksonville), Chicken and Whiskey and Hi-V.

I didn't know anything about Hi-V (not relation to Thee Monarchy V) other than they came and did some serious rocking out. They were all over the place- physically and stylistically. High fives all around.

I'm not sure what Timecat did between the last show and this but they seemed like a brand new band hell bent on starting a rock revival. There songs are getting more and more intense and they play with such fever it's hard not to convert. Don't resist! By the end of the set the bassist was totally naked and they trashed the drum set (again).

I wasn't quite how we were going to follow that but we did. Kristin said afterwards I was singing really obnoxious and how funny it was. I was just trying to be louder than normal because I had to turn my amp down. Haha. I hate turning down! Haha. I can only hope our audience can grow more every time we play Jacksonville. This was the third time in the past year we came to this city.

Chicken and Whiskey were last to play and I gotta say they blew me away. They are a trio of drums (Jack Diablo) and two keyboardists (Big Dunn and Chris Williams). Their music is super fun and full of good times. I wasn't expecting how fun they would be live. They give off the kind of like the same vibe Japanther gives off. This is some real good stuff.

After the show we stayed over at Rhett (from Timecat) and Natalia's house (The Lifeforms). It was good to shower before heading out to Athens, Georgia for the next nights show.

Across from the Lighthouse Thrift Store was a small car lot. This is the
