The Richter Scales: Men Who Blog

Tuesday, January 25, 2005

Another non-stop weekend for the Richter Scales. Saturday night was spent entertaining a suite filled with the crazed attendees of a wild bachelorette party. Fortunately, things were kept from getting too far out of hand, mostly because the groom of said bachelorette is none other than our very own too-sexy-for-this-bachelorette-party stud Curtis. So we were all on our best behavior. Although housekeeping is going to have a fit when they see what Curtis did to the sofa.

And then, a mere twelve hours after finishing up that gig, we showed up at the loading dock of Chabot College to start our sound check for the first of two a cappella benefits for the victims of the tsunami. They were great concerts, filled with some fantastic a cappella talent. It was great to see Clockwork again (we sang with them in the Harmony Sweepstakes last year, very nice guys and great singers) and we got to meet some other groups from the area. The crowd was a little bit older than many of our previous audiences, and I was worried that they wouldn't appreciate some of my...ummm...humor, but based upon the warm response in the lobby after the show, they seemed to like us just fine.

Some other things we discovered:

James Currier did not own a pair of jeans prior to this gig.
Mark Casey can catch grapes in his mouth with astounding accuracy.
Having your dressing room in the men's bathroom isn't too bad.
La Salsa makes great Wahoo.
Loren Cheng is capable of eating an entire bag of Mother's animal crackers.
Janus funds did some really messed up things back during the boom.

There is nothing like a group of bachelorette party girls to hang out with! Makes life much more interesting :)
