Tales from the road (part 4)
It was a close call, but Private Sector actually completed their first performance of their 2008 "Two in the Pink, One in the Stink tour" last night- fire postponed the North Dakota show and weather cut the gig in Ohio short.
However, it was touch and go at Yeunglings's in Ypsilanti Michigan, as drummer Brian Christopher made an ill timed comment over the microphone congratulating "the new Stanley Cup champion Detroit Penguins". The announcement did not sit well with the pro Red Wing crowd.
Private Sector plugged on through the downpour of boos and managed to finish strong winning the crowd back. By the time the final notes of "Subliminal messages" had finished in the encore, the band had completed their first performance.
Bassist Don Barley joked, "I was beginning to think we should call this tour 'Two in the stink, one in the pink.'"
The band moves on to New York for dates next week.
