Just a few hours before Hail the Titans got in our van (Ragnarok) to head to a show in Atlanta on Friday, the Atlanta-based blog Latest Disgrace published a story on us. Read: NOW HEAR THIS: Hail the Titans.
We played the Rock Science Revival at Picaflor Studio Friday night with Jon Von Panther and PlanetRAWK. It was a very fun show, and we are grateful for the hospitality shown to us by Tracey w/ Rock Science, Kathryn w/ Picaflor, Billy from Ricer, and the other bands.
(Also, the nearby Arizona Pub has a very good Philly cheesesteak and Fat Tire on tap. They also have fried artichoke hearts. Good stuff.)
After the show, Tracey took us to Star Bar (it was my first time there). They have an Elvis vault, complete with toilet and guitar. They also have a window with a stuffed fox… you know, random stuff that you expect to see at a good rock club. Then we visited he Majestic Diner, a 24-hour diner that has been around since 1929 and has a “Happy Days” kind of feel to it.
Saturday, we returned to the Alley Cat in Carrollton, Ga. with our friends in MeeN. First of all, if you haven’t been to the Alley Cat, you’re missing out. It’s one of those places that just has a cool vibe from the moment you walk in the door… and the food is great. (Their Philly cheesesteak is really good, too, and they have sweet potato fries.)
So we played our set, then MeeN rocked out. Then, once everyone had time to breathe for a minute, all of Hail the Titans and MeeN got back up there at the same time for a huge improv jam session. People from the crowd were playing floor toms, joining in on theremin, and our friend TC from Johnny’s in the Basement got on drums for a bit as well.
Big thanks to Josh and Casey from MeeN for their hospitality.
Coming up this weekend, we’re heading back to Mobile to play The Blind Mule with The Handsome Scoundrels. That show is Friday. On Saturday, we’re returning to The Squeaky Lizard in Ocean Springs, Miss. for Lance’s birthday weekend o’ rock. See you then!
