Days 3-4/365 Rocks, Water and Clouds

I meant to post day 3 yesterday, but our internet decided to stop working for the day so I couldn't.  

Day 3:

Yesterday Brook and I went to the Big Dam Bridge in Little Rock and I caught this shot before we left...we didn't get to stay long, it was too cold.

Every time I look at this photo it somehow reminds me of Hawthorne Heights album cover for "Fragile Future"

Speaking of Hawthorne Heights...JT Woodruff is going to be at Juanita's this Sunday as part of his first solo tour supporting his albums "Heavy Heavy Heavy Heavy Heart" and his newest "Ghost Coastal."

I have been wanting to see him solo for a long time now and am really hoping I find a way to make it to the show; for more then just that reason.  Boom The Wheel is going to be on the bill for that show.  I just found out a few days ago that Natalia is leaving Boom The Wheel, and this will be her last show them.  I am really sad about her leaving, she is an amazing singer with such a beautiful voice; a great person.and friend. I really hope I get to be there to see her perform with them one last time.

The Young Rapscallions are going to be on the bill as well.  I had never heard of them until a few days ago.  From what I have heard of theirs so far though has been really good and you may know their drummer, Christopher Mintz-Plasse known for playing the roles of McLovin' in the film Superbad, Isaac in the film Year One, Chris D'Amico/Red Mist in the film Kick-Ass, and Tommy in the film Pitch Perfect.

Actually The Young Rapscallions are going to be at Juanita's two nights in a row...tomorrow night as headliners with The Supporting Cast and The Revolutioners.  First off I would like to take a second to change my previous opinion of The Supporting Cast which I told you about in this post from 2010.  Where I basically said they suck. They don't. I was wrong.  I have seen them 4 or 5 times since then and they don't scream through the entire set.  They are good.  I don't know what was wrong me that day, maybe I was in a bad mood or had a headache or something.  I did say in that post that I was talking to Anthony Evans of School Boy Humor the whole time, so maybe I wasn't paying them enough attention.

The Revolutioners is another local band that is fronted by Phil Houston, who is also the lead singer of Se7en Sharp and was even the former frontman of one of Arkansas' well known cover bands The Gettys for a while.

I have been listening to Se7en Sharp for almost a year now and I try to see them as often as possible, for some reason I just decided a few weeks ago to start listening to The Revolutioners; I don't know why it took me so long...To be honest I think I just may like them a little more than Se7en Sharp; shh...don't tell Phil I said that.  Just kidding, he's probably going to read this anyway...he tends to Google himself and winds up here at Rockstars and Randomness.

I haven't had the chance to see The Revolutioners live yet, I was hoping to get the chance tomorrow, but as of right now that doesn't look like it is going to happen.

Day 4:

The clouds looked awesome on the way to the mall tonight.
