Birthday Party Aftermath and a Big Thank YouMay 31, 2012
I cannot even begin to thank all of you who came out to the birthday party last night. I honestly thought it was going to be a few fans of the bands and the friends that I had browbeaten into coming. I couldn’t have been prepared by the sheer amount of people who showed up. The place was packed with people enjoying music and I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd.
Major thanks go out to the Camel for hosting the event.
Thank you to Matt Klimas for the amazing poster.
Thank you to Kim Shook for making the delicious cake. It went fast.
Thank you to The Cheats Movement for taking photos (His photos were much better than my crappy camera ones).
Thank you to all the bloggers and music sites including You Hear That, One Way Richmond, Sounds of RVA, Handful of Brains, Chris Bopst, River City Rapids, The Richmond Scene and Style Weekly for all the promotion and getting the word out.
And finally, I want to thank all of you who retweeted links, spammed your friends on Facebook, drew Scott Pilgrim-inspired pictures, made a surprise show banner, sent me messages about how excited you were and everyone who showed up for a show when they could have been doing something else that evening. It seriously meant the world to me and none of it went unnoticed.
If I had planned a speech to give, it would have gone EXACTLY like this.
I’ve been told that I must throw another birthday party next year and after this night, I’m happy to do so. Also, I will be on Radio Rubber Room tonight at 10 p.m. on 102.9 FM with members of the RVA Beard League to talk about the party and music in general. Make sure to tune in.
