It’s now 5 days after our show at Crusens in Peoria, which means all motor skills have finally returned to normal. Almost. Geesh.
OK so, yeah, we’ve got a couple extra dope shows ahead of us this weekend. Friday, we’re back at NIU for the only time this semester. It’s always extra speshial for half of our band too, cuz C-note, Woodsy Fresh and Cornbread are all Huskies, so it’s our own little homecoming. Plus, beer nuggets. NIU, you know what I’m talkin’ bout. We hit at Rosy’s Roadhouse at 10:00.
Saturday we’re at HOME Bar in Arlington Heights. Even if 1000 people bum rush this room, you can still find a place to swing a cat so if you wanna shake your money maker at a TWC show, this is the place to do it without accidentally bumpin’ uglies with your neighbor.
Now here’s a lil suhin’ suhin to put in your pipe. It’s our sound engineer Sam On It, proving why you’ll be seeing more of him on the mic at TWC shows. Oh yeah, and we’re bonusing a P.Tugz freestyle at the end. Special credit to T-Wreckx on the guitar. And Woodsy Fresh for a most excellent cameo.
There’s alotta shit going on at 115 Bourbon Street this Friday but the phat beats will be coming from the new front stage after the Blackhawks game. If you wanna roam around doe, the country room is having “Crossover Night” with Hillbilly Rockstarz and Libido Funk Circus. And in the Big Room, they’re having live MMA fighting. Basically, a lil suhin suhin fer erryone.
As we crip walk our way into the new year, TWC is in a great place. We ended 2014 with a massively fun show in Indy, a little N64 Golden Eye in the hotel room followed by an after party that got shut down by the po-po. Here’s a little Before & After collage…
Then 2015 began with a Podcast interview focusing on the history of the band (check it out!)…how far TWC has come…how hard it was…and some of our milestone accomplishments over our 12 years together. It gave me a chance to spend some time thinking about all the former band members & Fly Girls over the year who got us where we are. “What a long, strange trip it’s been!” This band owes so much to all the players along the way. I’m honestly lucky as hell to be able to look back on each lineup over the years and have such great memories. There was never a time when I considered this “work”. It’s truly been a great ride. But I digress.
Last Saturday we had a show at Joe’s Bar which is where we started back in 2002. We always look forward to Joe’s shows because it’s such a great venue and we have such history there. We weren’t let down. It was an awesome crowd, a great time we even had a booty shake contest that was so lopsided that in the middle of the contest we dropped the mic and called it off before some of the contestants could even go. This girl straight up crushed it. It was over before it even began.
As if starting the year at Joe’s Bar isn’t “comin’ out of the gate swingin’” enough, we’re at two of our other favorite northern Illinois joints this weekend – Giovanni’s in Rockford this Friday and Austin’s Fuel Room this Saturday.
Start your year with some mad booty poopin’!
If you’ve always wanted to be a Fly Girl, and you’ve got the skills to back that thang up, Too White Crew’s new “Guest Fly Girl” nights are for you! And the next one is at Joe’s on Weed St. this Sat., 1/3!!
