pourhouse, philadelphia, pa 12/1/07

the night we rocked so hard the pa couldn’t take it; what was supposed to be a fun night playing a few sets at the pourhouse kept getting interrupted by our borrowed pa head blowing it’s fuse. we made it through the first set unscathed but halfway through the second the pa blew mid-song which caused the vocals to completely drop out. becker ran to a local auto garage and bought new fuses so we were able to replace it and start up again but after it happened two more times we ended the show a little early. everyone left and we sat at the bar to drown our sorrows. then, around 1:30 am, two of our friends showed up so we played two more songs just for them that they requested.
