Soda Shop’s first gig was on this day (May 20th, 2011) at NYC Popfest 10 years ago (!!!) at the now defunct Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.

So here’s a funny anecdote… we totally put off any formal practice for this set. At the last minute, I mean maybe 30 minutes before showtime, I was backstage with Maria’s drummer friend meeting him for the first time while explaining and practicing the songs for the first time. Let’s not forget poor Brian, I roped him in a week before to get through the bass parts.

The show wasn’t terrible, but yea…
