Car Vs. Driver – Without A Day
Under The Couch
I saw Car Vs. Driver play a show at Extreme Noise in Minneapolis. They played right after Satisfact, and consequently I didn’t give them the attention they deserved since my desire to see Satifact was bordering on rabid. Unfortunately I never had another opportunity to see them again. This song was recorded at a one-off “reunion” show almost 2+ years after they broke up.
Update: James from Car Vs. Driver just posted the entire audio set from this show over on his blog. Get it here.
Update 2: Pretty much forget everything I said in the above post. I must have been smokin’ crack when writing it because I did see them a “second” time and totally confused them with Cars Get Crushed at the Satisfact show. My indie cred is now all gone. When thinking about it, I think I remember hanging outside The Fireside Bowl with some of the members of CVD waiting for show to start. There was some Mexican grocery store close by which had some very amusing key chains nearby that we all had a laugh about. Thanks James for the correction…

I am not sure what band that was after Satisfact at the show in Minneapolis, but I know we never played there. I wonder what band that was? The closest we came was playing that Fireside show with Slant 6, Make-Up and Cap’n Jazz, which I know you attended. We could only go out for a few days at a stretch due to our singer having a young child at the time, so our main mode of touring was long weekends and playing regionally. Unfortunately we never did a proper US tour.
Hummm. I wonder who I’m thinking of then. But now that you say it, there was that Slant 6 show in Chicago. Man, I’m starting to forget stuff. 🙂
