Howdy Partisans,

May is over, which means we’re taking a month off! (From playing shows that is).  We recently got some pictures of our Tipitina’s show from a good man named Josh Brasted (he’s the man), so I figured I’d share.

Also, before the pics, we got some press from the show too: , , and .  Thanks for the shoutouts guys!!

Now, back to those pictures…

One of the biggest highlights of the night was Natalie’s take on the Gospel tune, Death Came a-Knockin’, by Ruthie Foster.  She was accompanied by Chris on drums, Rob from The Revivalists on saxophone, and former Blue Party drummer, Ross McIntire on percussion.  It was simple, and it was absolutely awesome.  I’m sure we’ll do it again.  Here’s Natalie singing the tune and playing the floor tom at the same time:

Rob took a solo halfway through that totally rocked.  (BTW, The Revivalists played in Lafayette Square yesterday in NOLA.  Mad Props.)

It was awesome to have Ross back on stage with us again as well.  He is definitely one of the best drummers/percussionists in New Orleans.  Hands down.

In other news, George kept the Thor-mask streak alive and showed the world that he is still the weirdest/coolest member of The Blue Party.  

In other fashion-related news, Alex shaved the mustache and sported “The Lincoln” for the show:

Al and Chris started the night in suits and managed to stealthily change into their “Tampa” outfits while I was talking.  It was the first planned Blue Party costume change and they pulled it off without telling anyone else in the band.  Well done Gents.  Al suited:

Chris dressed for the beach:

And Natalie thinks I need a haircut:

That’s it for now.  I’m going to the library to book our next tour(s).  Unfortunately, my ADD does not allow me to get anything done at my own house.

Until next time,

Reid
