Is KK&BBQ ever coming to Miami? The weather is really nice down here (especially around this time of year, when the humidity dies down) and we have very tasty food (the near-tropical climate is ideal for exotic fruit fare like biriba and sapodilla, which I can whip up into a pretty mean sorbet). I can think of lots of people who would be more than happy to put you guys up for the night (or for the month, or whatever).
All of my friends and I were really looking forward to tonight's show, and we're pretty bummed that it's cancelled. Not to be rude or slanderous, but the Detroit Cobras were rather boring when they played in Ft. Lauderdale last year (Reigning Sound were great, though), and most of the crowd (myself included) walked out after the second song; I don't think any of us were interested in seeing a repeat performance. Everyone I know who was going out tonight was going to see KK&BBQ.
Dominic from New Art School can set up club shows pretty quickly, even if he isn't the best looking guy in the world (somebody should really tell him to lose a few pounds - he just doesn't look healthy). If you'd rather do an outdoors kind of thing, I can always break out the generator and do an Everglades show. Of course, there always seems to be a problem with animal corpses on the site we use when we do that - last time there were several large garbage bags full of disemboweled pigs rotting away, surrounded (ironically enough) by scattered bottles of Wild Boar. Before that there were a couple of mummified dogs (dobermans, I think, but there's fairly widespread disagreement on that point), and before that there was a dead horse (which everyone pretty much agrees was a palomino). You also have to worry about the alligators, mostly because drunk showgoers will try to hit them with rocks (by the way, that stuff you hear about running in a zig-zag line to escape an alligator isn't true - if they want you, they'll catch you). Anyway, you should come to Miami.
