After sleeping off the effects of their first night in New York, Bow Wow Wow and their trusty tech Owen headed out to Long Island for the first gig of their summer tour – and their first show on the East Coast for six years. The folks at the Downtown rocked. They looked after us soooooooo well.
Adrian did a meet and greet for Zildjian, giving out his signature sticks and drum bags to the line of aspiring drummers who’d come out to meet him. Meanwhile Leigh and Annabella reconnected with some old fans and made some new friends before the show.
In honor of this first gig, Adrian busted out a brand new eyeliner and a fresh pair of Argyle socks. He bounded on stage wearing very little in between to the delight of DJ Malibu Sue, who had been promoting the hell out of the gig all week on her radio show and who was kind enough to introduce the band.
The crowd were awesome, giving it up for the newer songs like "Eastern Promise" as if they were old favorites. Phil was very pleased to see a gaggle of very cute girls at his side of the stage, while Annabella was looking for a real “Cowboy” in the crowd.
After an encore, the band chatted to the fans that had stayed behind until well past 1 a.m., before heading back into Manhattan for some shut-eye.
Adrian’s Tip of the day: “When going though a toll booth on the 495, if you accidentally got in the wrong ezeepass-instead-of-cash lane, don’t get out of the car, otherwise they’ll majorly fine your ass.”
