The band has had the pleasure of playing with so many rad musicians and they always love to play with friends and other party enthusiasts. Every show is awesome in its own way, from the small hole in the walls with close friends to completely sold out clubs. FOAD’s favorite shows are filled with friends, the ones that come to see them, and the ones they make when they get there. The best times are said to come from the before and after hours of the shows. “ The other day, we played with our great friends Greek Fire. We checked in to a hotel early in the day and partied in the pool, had some beers, and skateboarded in the parking lot all before the show. And have had some crazy after parties as well that have included getting kicked out of upscale clubs, drinking in the venue parking lots, taking everyone from the show to the darkest least crowded dive bar we can find.” laughs Gabe. They have played at strip clubs and brought a skatepark and local crew of heshers to join in the fun, and even brought a PA and lights to the campgrounds of a float trip to throw a giant outdoor campfire party. So they know their grime, but nothing beats the time after a show when a fan told Gabe to slap him. When he did the guy called Gabe a pussy and pulled out his “guitar”, and Gabe held nothing back when “smashing his guitar” in a tribute to The Who. All three members have found the elixir of hijinks, and no it is not in Keith Richards blood like many of you may think. “ We have a song called FUC401K about how partying is a full time job, which it truly is. As in anything you do for a living and love, you have to be all in, and trust me we are all in.” and they have the bar tabs and scars to prove it. Their research proves there is no real secret at all. “When you have fun, like true this is all that matters right now fun, people can see it and it’s contagious.” Through the thick smoke and blurred haze you can see that they just found something that they really enjoy doing, and that’s Party!
