Rock and Roll Thrives on Halloween at the TLA

TLA Halloween Marquee

We wanted to take a minute and reflect on the absolutely incredible time we had last Saturday, joining our compatriots in Philly rock, Stolen Rhodes, Black Stars, and Kid Felix, for a mind-blowing Halloween party at the TLA.

Together with a an amazing crowd of ghouls, goblins, a couple of Marios, and a gigantic gerbil (thanks Vince), we took part in a testament to the power of rock and roll. Everyone was on their A game, and with the help of some seriously sexy burlesque dancers and some pumping DJ tunes, the night was absolutely unreal.

For us in Cold Roses, the whole thing went by too quickly. We left everything on the stage though, and together we spent the night watching our favorite bands do the same.

Not until the next day did it start to dawn on us that we had just played one of the most iconic stages in the city, with some of our best friends in the scene, in front of the best crowd Philly had to offer.

So I wanted to thank all the people that made that possible; Justin, Vince, Edwin, and the rest of the Dobbs crew. We love you guys. The Chive for doing what you do best. All of the bands; we love playing music with you guys…and Dan and Matt, We Believe In Rock and Roll! And finally, all of our fans and all of the new Cold Roses converts. You’re why we do this, and it wouldn’t have been half as fun playing this show without you guys front row.

Thanks you guys, and see ya’ll Friday the 8th at The Bitter End in NYC.

Whew…that was a long weekend!

Hollystock 2013

Holy shit, are we tired!

This was one hell of a never-ending weekend of gigs folks, and we’re just starting to recover from it.

We started the insanity Friday at Dave and Busters in Philly, opened for The Slim Kings (featuring Liberty Devvito of Billy Joel’s band) and the Nick Clemmons Band. (Nick’s the son of Clarence Clemmons, Bruce’s sax player) It was a rip-roaring good time, and thanks to all our fans out there, we packed the place!

It was cool meeting Liberty Devvito too…that dude is one class act:

The next morning there was no rest for the wicked. We had to be up and at ‘em early to get over to Mt. Holly, NJ for their first annual Hollystock Music Festival!

We had a nice little stage in the shade right next to the beer garden. So needless to say, we were happy campers out there with all the drunks. But we were also among good company, playing alongside incredible bands like Black Stars, The Defused, Kid Felix, and more.

Thanks to Break the Glass Photography for these great shots!

After rocking the stage outside, and hanging with one of our favorite bass players, Stolen Rhodes’ Dan Hass, we packed up the cars and drove north to Puck in Doylestown, PA for a nightcap of a show with our buds The Rivals! The night ended with everyone on stage plowing our way through the Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down,” The Band’s “The Weight,” and eventually “La Bamba.”

I can’t remember much after that one.

Now it’s back to bed. But thanks to all of our friends, fans, and family for coming out to any or all of our shows this weekend! And a big thanks to all the bands we played with. This barrage of gigs was way too much fun.
