It's been a few years since HALESTORM first came to Greenville opening up for TRAPT and RED at the Handlebar. Since then, the band has done more than just come into their own! Hell, Lzzy Hale is pretty much a household name in the rock world and even has her own weekly segment ("Ask Lzzy") on Harddrive with Lou Brutus. Saturday, they finally returned to the Handlebar bigger than ever with their continued success resulting from their powerful sophomore release The Strange Case of... which has not only successfully followed up their breakthrough self-titled debut but actually topped it! And, despite all of their success, they still remain the ever so gracious and humble bunch that has earned my utmost respect for the band! Well, that and the fact that Lzzy is EFFIN' HOT!!!!
I also hung out with Nine and some friends at the show and even managed to swing by my friend and fellow SLAVEDRIVER bandmate, Moon's birthday party!
On a sad note, I had to say goodbye to one of my beloved record reps as Ali O (now Ali WHOA! since she got married) is leaving Atlantic Records and was out for one last show in the Upstate. We'll miss you Ali WHOA!
In other news, I'm not sure what's been with me lately, but I sure have been sleeping a lot. The day of the HALESTORM show I managed to take in a two hour nap before going despite having had a decent night sleep the night before and even took a nap after church on Sunday. Then last night I went to bed around 11:30 which is early for me and still had a hard time getting going this morning. Maybe I'm getting old but I've always heard the older you get, the less you sleep!
