Last weekend was phenomenal. We hit up Bacchus in New Paltz Friday night hoping to catch the graduation crowd. The turnout was a little lighter than we had hoped but we got an amazing response from the people that did show up. We made some new friends and hopefully some new fans.
Saturday we lucked out and missed the rain at Gardiner Cupcake Festival. This is the third year we’ve played the GCF and it’s turned into one of our favorite shows. The crowd is always so responsive and upbeat. The Big Takeover played before us and got everybody into the groove with their soulful ska music. We had everyone rockin’ along including some very excited babies and puppies. Of course we got to eat tons of cupcakes. Bear’s birthday is coming up so Aunt Lilly put together a cupcake celebration and we all sang. We even found a vendor selling spicy cupcakes made with hot sauce, which were surprisingly delicious!
Saturday night we headed to Bennington VT to catch the SVC graduation crowd at JC’s Tavern. It was our first time there and the locals were very accommodating. We were a little nervous with all the new faces but after the first song the room erupted in applause and the good vibes kept up throughout the night. We made some new friends, got some good videos and found our new favorite venue in Bennington.
