Well the title says it all! This Memorial Day weekend started with a blistering bang and a groundshaking roll of thunder as TRIVIUM came to town to play the Handlebar last Thursday! And, before the show, the band came by the Planet studios to tape an interview and a couple of songs with our own metal guru Diesel! Check out the video here and our pic with the band below.
After I got off the air, I went almost directly to the Handlebar after checking in on Tessa who was unable to make the show because she had strep throat and I got there just in time to greet some folks and introduce SIX AND TWENTY!
Afterwards KELEN HELLER took the stage then it was time for TRIVIUM! It was a great show but I was glad when it was over so I could go home and see my sick lil lady!
By Saturday Tessa was feeling much better so we caught a showing of Men In Black 3. I have to admit that I was rather skeptic about this sequel coming an entire decade after the last installment and missing three of my favorite characters: Jeebs, Zed and Frank. However, I was very pleasantly surprised as I laughed and even cried....but not as much as my girlfriend!
After the movie, I headed to band practice as we are gearing up for our debut show and video shoot at Ground Zero this Friday night!
Sunday was just a day of gorging as I went to my Aunt Pat's and had burgers, dogs, corn and everything in between. Tessa had to leave from my aunt's house and head to work while I went over to my guitarist Moon's stepmom's house to swim....and eat some more!
After all that, I went to my office to work on a few things so I could take it easy on Memorial Day aside from my on-air duties. Glad I did so because it gave me the opportunity to relax a little after such a crazy weekend at the beach! Now bring on Friday and let the enslavement begin!
