Tater Tots, Double Downs, Beer, and a Fantastic Evening of Music with Admiral Fallow 
(Sponsored by Speakers in Code)

Presenting a show isn't as easy as it looks - in fact, it's hard work. We learned quite a few lessons in our efforts to bring Admiral Fallow to Durham, North Carolina the weekend of March 19th. Like, how taxing the business of concert promotion can be, but just how rewarding it is when that work results in a sold-out sign posted on the venue's door. Or how American food, be it the salty simplicity of childhood favorite, the tater tot, or the gut-busting KFC Double Down, is glorious no matter how many arteries it clogs.

We were all fortunate enough to have an insanely talented, and fast on-the-rise band from Chapel Hill along for the ride with Wylie Hunter and the Cazadores. Who, as much as anyone else involved, promoted the shit out of this show to ensure a positive evening for all. We cannot thank them enough.

But learning really doesn't mean that much without experiences, and the low-key day and climactic evening were full of them. The below photos represent a whirlwind of a weekend, that was bookended by two caravan-like trips to the airport transporting seven fine Scotsmen (and one Scotswoman), to and fro gigs from Austin to New York.

Thanks to all that helped make this a magical evening. You know who you are.

Bassist Joe Rattray fuels up before the show by attempting to down a Double Down. We can attest he was only able to stomach a few bites.
