stellar kart plays basketball

in one of the most hilarious weekends in our bands history, we had more fun than we've had in a long time in richmond, virginia yesterday. sure we were there to play a show and rock like we've never rocked before, but this day was different. this particular promoter and his family have been to several sk shows and we were chatting after one of the shows about how i like to play basketball when i'm home. they just so happen to run the annual basketball tournament for the Christian high schools in their area. i jokingly said, "hey, maybe our band could be one of the teams in the tournament." he said he'd figure something out.

and then it actually happened...

we wound up teaming up with the band eleventyseven (who opened up the show that night) and challenging the american family radio station staff and some contest winners. it was amazing. our team was bad...but they were worse. our strategy for victory was to run, run, run. :) we came away victorious and got an invite back to possibly play a real high school team next time.

thanks so much to all the afr staff and listeners for such a fun experience that we'll never forget!

happy thanksgiving,
adam

you know, the first time I met you boys (when you jumped on the bill last minute for that free show in South Florida) you spent a good couple hours playing basket ball in the gym.

Glad to see you're still having fun.
