    Hey Y'all!

    I'm Peter, ya may have seen me at a few of the Maidens' shows over the last six years or so. But I've been a Phantom Blue fan since back in the day.

    When I saw Michelle play with the Maidens at McMurphys a couple of years ago, it brought back a few memories. We got to chat very briefly then and got reacquainted. I will always remember what a sweet person she was.

    Peace.

    :cry: I t doesn't look like I'm going to make it after all. I got an e-mail from Dawn who is one of the organizers and she told me the Whiskey said no cameras allowed at all. As much as I'd like to be there anyways. It's not worth the expense to travel all the way down there if we can't film and do interviews.:cry:

    :cry: Sorry we won't see you there Danny. :cry: You will be there in spirit tho, and Michelle will know it! Remember how we got you and your camera into the Roxy? :cool: :lol:

    Sara and Courtney will be joining Phantom Blue along with Tina Wood in the guitarist positions! This will be so fun.

    The Maidens are also having a guest singer sit in (Kirsten does not live in Los Angeles yet - wah!) for a couple tunes, and maybe a second guest too but not confirmed yet.

    No cameras? Ahh, I hate that! Oh well, that means I can focus more on the show than taking pictures then.

    So looking forward to this and FINALLY seeing the Maidens perform after being a fan for about 5-6 years!

    That's great, Danny!! No Effen and Neon - see ya there!

    Just a note:

    The Maidens are kicking in all off at 8:30 and Phantom Blue goes on at 9:10

    Short sets, but it all starts very early that night so try to get there around 8:00pm and enjoy the tunes from KNAC's DJ Will to get warmed up. :hotjump:

    Looking forward to this!

    It's still up in the air for me. Friday night me & Huge from Reality Check TV went and saw Jane's addiction & 9 Inch Nails. On the way back his transmission blew and we had to get towed. The tow cost him $225.
    He has a back up car but after that ordeal he's having second thoughts about taking the trek down there. We're filming the New York Dolls tonight so we'll see if tomorrow or even Tuesday if we're heading out.
