Haha yeah! I'm glad to be done with this live performance at last. Those costumes brought me down, I was sure I couldn't handle it. But some miracles just happened in my time of need!
My hubby talked about my misery at his job, and he found someone willing to lend me his sewing machine to help me out! And even my brother, his girlfriend and my man helped me as they could. Aren't they the sweetest?
You just gotta love having such a nice family!
So, last Sunday, we packed our stuff (instruments, amps, costumes, etc.) in our car, and we departed from Chicoutimi, driving all the way to Québec city (a 2 hours and a half long roadtrip). That was quite cool actually
I wish the band could have made this trip altogether, but we needed to split in three cars (we had roadies and friends too)(Si vous habitez à Québec, ou si vous y êtes des habitués, vous saurez de quel resto je parle. Sérieusement.)
Around 20 minutes before we reached Québec, we were kind of starving, so we took a rest at Stoneham's McDonald's to fill up our growling bellies. I swear this is the worst place EVER. When I entered said restaurant, I stood right behind Rémi (one of our three guitarist). He looked back at me and said "I've already been waiting for 10 minutes". We waited for ten more minutes before the cashier next to us says "Sorry, there's no employee working at this cash register today. You'll have to wait in my line." ... ... MAN!! Why didn't you tell us before!? So we had no choice but to move. As soon as we got in our new and freakishly way too long line... she called a dude to operate "our" cash register, and that stupid slut just took our place as we were a bunch of 8 "looking-like-murderers" starving group waiting and getting impatient.
Guys, you may live in France, England, Japan, United States, Cambodge, WHATEVER! If you ever come to Québec, never ever eat at Stoneham's McDo. I'm serious. You'll hate it.
Finally in Québec city. The gardens are beautiful, the skyscrapers are impressive as hell, the streets are... wait. What the fuck is wrong with those streets!? "One Ways" all over the place! It definitely is damn dangerous when you're not too familiar with that stupid city. As we were driving, we stopped at a red light. There were One Ways at both sides. When the light turned green, my man went straight forward and stopped as soon as he crossed the street and rolled back, saying "Gosh! Is it another damn One Way!?" (which wasn't, of course, or else we'd be fucked XDD) That asian guy in the car next to us sure thought we were funny looking xD Operation "Do Not Look Like Tourists" = EPIC FAIL XD
After getting lost in that huge city (oui, quand vous vivez à Chicoutimi, Québec semble terriblement IMMENSE u_u)
, we finally managed to reach the place we were supposed to attend. What a relief it was! We set up our stuff, tuned our guitars, and got prepared for the show. We dressed as vikings and put some war paint in our faces and just cooled down for the last 10 minutes we had before getting on stage. Here's a nice pic of my man and I during that 10 minutes break!
The face people have when they see me with my bass! It's always the best part of any performances
"OMG look! The bassist is a girl!!" then I start playing. "OMG look! She sure KNOWS how to play!!" Hahaha XDD
And here's a last shot of my brother and I while we played
Concentration at its best!
So that's about it. We're all back home, safe and sound. Let's get back at drawing chibis now.Some more shots of us live!

But please tell me! What did you guys have been doing for Easter?
