The birth of Yerrypalooza


(The Bleeding Hearts)

OK, so last night's post and myspace bulletin about my dream line-up wasn't entirely accurate, but it also wasn't a joke. It turns out that Richard Bacchus and The Bleeding Hearts were both supposed to practice last night. Over dinner, members of both bands and of The T's decided to just practice at Slim's. Unfortunately not everyone in The T's or Suburban Sweethearts could actually make it to such a last-minute show.

That ended up being OK, because Richard Bacchus and The Bleeding Hearts both played, and various members guest-starred in each other's bands. Totally low-key, even though a surprising number of people made it out. It really was pretty much like hanging out at someone's house, drinking beer and watching their band practice. That's a good thing.

At some point someone started calling the event Yerrypalooza in honor of Bleeding Hearts guitarist Joe Yerry. Maybe that means it'll be an ongoing event. Sunday night practice sessions at Slim's.

Check out the videos below, and the photos I took on Flickr.
