August 25, 2003 - Fat City Reprise plays their first show ever at Doc Watson's in Philadelphia, opening for a band called Hilliard. It was a Monday night.
Sixteen years is a long time, a lot of people born and dead in that time period. It's pretty trippy to even think about, we were mostly 21 at the time, sixteen years before that we were 5.
In recognition of spending the day struggling with my own mortality, I just dropped a massive photo bomb. There are 183 new pictures in the Random 2004 album, 56 in 2005, 5 in the Press Pictures, and a NEW album with 93 Halloween pictures. I spent the other night hanging out with Trov and he gave me the mother load. Still no new audio, I'm thinking we'll have to take a trip to New York for that. Maybe when Frankie gets back from Kentucky.
I also got the right artwork up for the Black CD Demo and the Monkey EP, again thanks to Trov. Artwork on the Monkey Demo by Johnny Zito.
Another anniversary treat, on the Apparel Page, the original Fat City Reprise Sound Wave shirt is back up and for sale. Before Al Bruno's famous classic logo, we used this guy. Artwork by Johnny Zito, font by Microsoft Word.
One last Easter Egg, in the first blog we ever posted back in 2004, we detailed the story behind a bet between Trov and I about whether or not I could run a mile in less than ten minutes. I ran it in 7:20, at 1AM. We posted pictures that I thought were lost but BOOM SON!
