Well, Steve's been working a cool day job...Dry Wall in North Tacoma. Well, that explains it all, doesn't it? No more 'holding MY breath' and hoping to get online....oh, that reminds me of these cool SEALECT TUNA/CHICKEN OF THE SEA commecials that I saw one o these online [FACEBOOK] last week and I'll post several of them below, that I found on YOUTUBE today.
And, what's happened musically in the past week, with BARTLETT and in the world? Well, I'm gonna tell ya. In the world...the world is in shock....about the tragic news o ROBIN WILLIAM's death today, go HERE....I will report on this in the next post.
Of course, Steve's played with several cool musicians in this area in the past week....check them all out below. We also met a cool 'Heavy MetaL' band from Spokane, WA. in the past week, called.THIRION X
Thirion X played at UNCLE SAM's BAR AND GRILL in Spanaway, WA. last Friday, August 8th...WOW. They had a gig on Saturday too, the 9th in Fife, WA....then rest up back in Spokane.
I'd never heard a live 'Heavy Metal' before...the music was intense and powerful...what a show...HEAVY METAL fans will be delighted with this!. Everyone at Uncle Sam's were cheering and loving it all....AND we are ...well, 'er' mostly from a diFFerent generation than these young wipersnappers....AND we really enjoyed ourselves, So,. I've posted Thirion X's upcoming shows on the link above AND will tell my family in 'Ol Spokalou'....[Spokane]...go out and support, check out and have a good time with these amazing guys. BARTLETT has never played 'Heavy Metal' and thought it would be lotsa fun, thought, maybe he'd been missing out on something good, after watching the band. We'll be sure to keep an eye on this group of musicians...cool.
Well, you might ask...'why were we at Uncle Sam's last Friday?' Steve BARTLETT ON BASS was honored to play again with JOSEPH PLEMMONS/guitar/vocals, DEB STONE/keys/vocals and DON YOUNG/drums in Plemmon's band called 'STRANGE PLEASURE'.
O.K.,...Let's see, now...What else has been happening?
There was a gig in Olympia, WA, 518 Capital Way S. [check out their location in Yelm too] at 'LA GITANA PIZZA on Saturday, August 9th with THE 'C' NOTES'. That's PAT COLE/guitar/vocals, JOHN CARLETON/lead vocals/guitar , and a wonderul mandolin player named Glen, who sat in. Of course, Steve BARTLETT was ON BASS. tThe place was packed
