Last time Blue October was in Atlanta, they played to a SOLD OUT crowd! They are back, playing the Buckhead Theater THIS THURSDAY with rockers, Plain Jane Automobile. If you haven’t heard of PJA (as their fans so cleverly refer to them as), then read below. PJA’s lead singer joined us for our 5GB series before their show with Blue October this Thursday. Make sure and enter below for a chance to win a pair of tix to the show!
What was the first gig you ever went to?
Pixies, Beacham Theater. I skipped school to see this show. I was 16, it was amazing! My ears are still ringing.
What is the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Elbow at Terminal 5 in NYC. Best show I have ever seen. They just make me swoon.
What is the best gig you’ve ever played/performed at?
Have to be The Roxy in LA. It was exactly like I imagined it and it was a sold out show with Ours. We met Ron Jeremy afterwards and some guys from Jackass. Instead of partying with them we went to a diner and saw MC Hammer having a conversation with Suge Night (spelling?) It was like being shoved into a television that someone vomited all over.
What gig would you most like to play? (festival or event or a location or a venue)
We would love to play T- in the Park in Paul’s native Scotland. Always an amazing lineup and we probably would have to wear wellies. Who doesn’t want to wear rain boots in stage I say!
What would the line-up be at your dream gig? Who would you play with?
I would have love to play a show with Elbow and Doves. I would have to run on stage and sing backing vocals on The Everthere, then run backstage and weep because that song crushes me!
