Old Platform 6 – gig review

cropped-blq-icon2.jpg Well Kittens last Friday night we played at  Old Platform 6 (20 Main St, Bldg 3, Oakville, Connecticut 06779). This was our first show at this venue, and was a bit of an experiment, in that it was a last minute thing with almost no promotion. We are certain it will not be our last though.
Kittens, we love this place! I want to live there. I said to the guys “I’m calling my husband now to pack up the dog because we are moving in here!”.

So lets back-up and go over the night. Old Platform 6 is in an old brick industrial building right behind Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes…… we got some cupcakes on arrival, because 1. we had miraculously not been stuck in traffic on the way and so arrived almost a half hour before we meant to, and 2. because cupcakes. Once our lovely host, venue owner Caroline, arrived and let us inside it was love at first sight. The space is beautiful. High ceilings, old wood floors, exposed brick walls, HUGE windows, pillars and such lovely furniture. There are many elegant antique sofas and chairs arranged in inviting groups as well as some long ‘family style’ dining tables. It really has the feel of a Parisian jazz club, especially as there is no sign outside just an open door where music is always flowing out!. If I lived closer I would take a membership for sure.

When setting up we found that the room has wonderful acoustics so we hardly needed any amplification at all. It sounded great. AND we were able to get a photo of Drummer Paul! So I can finally change his pic on the Introducing the band… page from just his drum kit to actually include his face!!

We played two 40-50 minute sets with a short 15 minute break between. And tried out  a new addition to the set that had never been played live before. Look out for more info on that here soon!.
We had the best time at OP6 and were happily surprized how many of you came out despite the last minute status. We were so glad to see you, and so very glad you all had such a good time. We hope to see many more of you next time.

Blq At Scottish Daves April 19th 2018

cropped-blq-icon2.jpg  Black Lodge Quartet will be playing at one of our all time favorite venues in the state, Scottish Dave’s Pub in Clinton CT On Thursday 19th of April 2018.
Scottish Dave’s is CT’s only Scottish pub, this place is the real thing! They even serve haggis. Yes lovely people you read that right, the menu includes what we in Scotland call a “Haggis supper” which is haggis coated in batter and deep fried and served with thick cut fries. Brave enough for it? if not then not to worry the food here is fantastic and there is PLENTY of it.
This is one of the friendliest places in New England. You will feel like family.
No cover, over 21 or with a parent. The band should be on stage by 7pm for two 45 to 50 minute sets with a small intermission.
