Mini-tour: Hot Hotlanta

Ok, so as I mentioned in the previous post, it was 99 degrees plus 100% humidity when we arrived in Nashville. When we went to Atlanta it was 102 plus the humidity. The lowest it got last night was 85 degrees. Needless to say, it was a little warm…so we played 14 Degrees and hoped that might help the heat.

We played at the Banana Hammock which is a house that has monthly shin-digs. If the show on Friday is any indication of the Atlanta scene, we were super impressed. All the bands were really great: The N.E.C., Johnny Buffalo,In Heaven(from Delaware), Ex Libris(also Delaware). I had heard about Atlanta house shows but wasn’t sure what to expect. Would it live up to the myth? Yes! The place was packed with awesome folks that loved music. Even though there was only smoking outside, almost everyone there would cram inside to watch ALL the bands.

So with all these bodies in the room, 100 degree heat and humidity, needless to say it was a bit warm. I’ve scene bands in some pretty toasty conditions but I have never seen bands sweat like I did last night. It was not a good night to be a drummer. Ok, let’s be honest it wasn’t good to do anything other than sit in a chair and sip a cold one. Reguardless of the heat, the bands gave it their all and played awesome sets.

We (heart) the Banana Hammock and we (heart) Atlanta. Bring on the heat!
