First an Elephant, now a Tortoise? (the Scottsdale Gig)

2010-02-13 Scottsdale, AZ - Spokanites Hitched 2010 World Tour 022First, a big thanks to J. and Lisa Sandoval for letting us use their palatial estate to host our Scottsdale gig.  It felt a bit like U2 at Slane Castle, but with fewer people.

We were still coming off of the Spokanites Asia tour so the jet lag was running high and the brain cells were running low.  Sorry if we seemed a bit off our game (at least Sonya’s voice had started to return).

2010-02-13 Scottsdale, AZ - Spokanites Hitched 2010 World Tour 026Highlights for this party included some  of the following:

  • Our very own red velvet rope and a bouncer (awesome)
  • Some “long time no see” guests like Audrey/Barry, Robin Sly, Mike Varley, etc.  Thanks to everyone! 
  • Tasty Mexican food, Sangria and margaritas! 
  • Staying in the guest house (no need to leave)

Lastly, we had a great time hanging out with J., Lisa, the family and the miniature zoo they have created.  This included a German Sheppard, an aviary with 6 love birds, and a spotted tortoise (which was just cruising around the back yard and occasionally having its shell licked by the dog.  Very entertaining, and surprisingly fast.

All in all it was a great time.  Thanks again to all who joined us!!
