The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
So last night's May 2nd show at The Spectrum was my first show ever. My girlfriend and I went down Friday night to hang in Shakedown, and Saturday night for Shakedown and the show. The show was absolutely amazing, and I'm extremely glad I got to see them play their very last show at The Spectrum. I would have to say the only real downside was the chocolates we got off Snodgrass were way weak, and it kinda of brought my night down a bit. But no worries, I still enjoyed seeing them tear the Spectrum down regardless...I just hope they tour again sometime and I get a chance to REALLY experience the show. The Philly cops were a major downer post-show, shutting down Shakedown even earlier on Night 2 than on Night 1....From everything I heard it was because of some dumbass (not even there FOR THE DEAD) hit some security dude over the head over a nitrous tank....and in my opinion, the nitrous guys were the bane of Shakedown...the people with those tanks weren't there for The Dead they were just there making money off people and attracting negative attention from security and the cops...but other than that, Shakedown Street was extremely cool. My girlfriend and I will definitely be setting up our own little shop next time The Dead come into town :)
