Greetings and Happy New Years Attacked by Gorillas. I know it's been a while since I posted anything but I'm hoping to change that (New Year’s Resolution). Anyway, Psycho, a few other guys, and myself decided to head to the Norva last night to see an up and coming local band the Fighting Jamesons. The Front man and lead guitar is Mike Powers from the Mike and Bob Show. I work with the Bass Player and pretty much everyone is pretty down to Earth. They have an amazing fiddle player also.
They are a self described Irish Metal band and mostly play covers of Flogging Molly and Drop Kick Murphys. From what I saw yesterday they have a lot of talent. I'm hoping to see a couple more of their shows coming up, especially when they start writing their own stuff.
The whole night was pretty awesome with the exception of having to pay $6 for a plastic cup of beer. Even with the insane prices in Japan, $8 still got me an entire bottle.
Again, happy New Years everyone. If you are interested check out their website: http://www.thefightingjamesons.com
