Ah yes it was a steamy day and a hot line up at Middle East UP on Saturday afternoon so we made our way over to check some stuff out.......Red Invasion was getting ready to go as we walked in...and lo and behold...guitarist Ryan shaved off his facial hair and looks absolutely gorgeous.....now Iain on the other hand has dyed his hair a horrid yellow and red on the left side and well, it IS better than the half black half white "do" he had a few months ago.....and since we're speaking of hair Andy has grown his hair long and it looked awful and sweaty and stringy and just not a good choice...and Joey, he's going lighter with a natural brown look....but anyway....they started late coz Andy and Iain ahem, we're not exactly sure why....were very late arriving...we waited and waited and then they ran in and on stage....and started roaring out those Red Invasion tunes....very good...lots of fun....these guys are great to watch and great to hear as well...I just luvs 'em.
OH! And I will never ever complain about a heat wave again...Ryan and Joey ripped off their shirts and played topless and sweaty...it was fun to watch that too..ya ok so I can be leacherous ...ain't so much wrong with that!
Unfortunately we were not able to stay for the Midnight Creeps, one of
my favorite bands but I did snap a pic of the always and ever hot and interesting
Jenny Hurricane watching Red Invasion.....then BeatGirl kept on
partying later on in the evening and went to Nancy Neon's Birthday Party
at The Cantab and the birthday Girl was up on stage playing the tambourine
and have a great old time...And she looks fab too!!
Happy Birthday Nancy!!
