A Word from Frankie:
Destination: Spikeís / Location: Faribault, MN / Miles: Approximately 385

Iím going to be the first to say people that The Trash is not a fan of traveling in vehicles for long periods of time. This drive is somewhere in between 5 and 7+ hours depending on if itís storming or snowing. Luckily for Cherry Pie, bad weather follows us to every gig. Weíve been looking into sponsorships as of late... I think Iím going to hit up weather.com to see if theyíre interested in teaming up with us. I guess the drive seemed to go fast because A: I usually sleep while Captain Dave, and Commander Vetter steer the ship, and B: The excitement of playing at such a kick ass venue, with great employees, a killer light show, a rocking sound system, and people who are ready to party seems to make time fly. But hold up. HEY! Lets not forget to recap a little of the getting there part. Some great conversation, with topics that wouldnít be appropriate to write about, was had by four grown men. Well three... I stopped growing around 14. I may be 5í 6" with the help of some great Harley boots, but this stallion rides like no other. A heated game of Yahtzee was dominated by, as Mr. Miyagi would say, "New beginner luck." Josh, congrats on your victory, and no need to clean my bananas dude! :) Another exciting moment, straight out of Seinfeld I might add, happened when our transportation gas reader hit zero miles. It has never really been tested before, but weíre now confident we can go about 5-8 miles on empty and still drive in to a gas station. For more details on this please read Dairy of a roadie below. So we finally arrive at Spikeís... Unloading gear, I hate this part. We got set up, sound checked and had a bunch of down time to partake in some more friendly band competition. Darts & drinks, which is always a good time. Itís exactly 45 minutes before we take stage, so Vetter starts rolling the NEW video segment with added surprises, but I wonít give that away. Come to a show people! We open the night with Welcome to the Jungle, the song that put GNR on the map. Not a home run, but definitely a fun way to start the night. First sets goes off well, so Vetter and I celebrate with Jaeger Bomb. I was really looking forward to the second set because there was a new song in the set list tonight. The Shaner decided he wanted to add some more AC/DC to the CP catalog, so we rocked out Dirty Deeds! Show is over and itís DONE, DONE, cheap! Load out, stop for gas (twice), get home safe. Super awesome time Spikeís! Thanks so much to everyone who came out... Canít wait to do it again!     --The Trash

"Diary of a Roadie"
By Kevin
Every now and then we like to do a little something different, and play at a place far away from home (well most of our homes). Tonight, we make our second trip back to Spikes after a fairly successful debut back in February. Hopefully no snow this time, but you never know. Lets roll... [more]

Were you at this show?
Would you like to comment on it?

"There was something in the air this night. I don't know if it was the tumultuous weather or the changing of the seasons, but no matter what it was, it sure unleashed the inhibitions in some of the patrons. CherryPie supplied the electricity and spark to ignite the wildness of the night. And John, who's a live wire and emanates a glow of hot energy from within his very soul, put on a performance that surged enough energy through all of us to keep us rocking and having fun at the same time. This show was a great way to spend a night inside before we stepped outside and face nature's own entertainment."
