live show summary
Date: December 12, 2002 (Thursday)
How can you not love Club Bohemia at the Kirkland Cafe? Scamper treated a full house to a year-end greatest hits show, promptly erasing memories of the prior night's less-than-stellar rock show up in Lowell. A happy and drunk crowd sang along with every word, Doug got treated to a slow dance with Mike Guerriero during "Longshot 98," and Keith jumped over the railing into the crowd for the encore of "Boom." Tonight also marked the first appearance of the self-proclaimed Scamper Bunnies, dressed in Santa suits and dancing around with big promotional Scamper signs outside the windows of the Kirkland. Where were they last night when we had cages on the sides of the stage?
Scamper fans who arrived early were treated to awesome opening sets by The Complaints and a tight new band on the scene called Polyethylene. Scamper fans who stayed late were treated to an after-party downtown, with much camaraderie and bonding. Not a bad way to close out 2002, eh? Forgetting, for now, the poor Scamper Bunny who got disastrously ill and the poor Scamper bassist who got a flat tire on the way home. Oh well.
