For The Locals

Toast @ Rail House
------------------------------------------------------------
Friday, July 12, 7:00 - 11:30
------------------------------------------------------------

Usually they want to ride us out of town on a rail, but this time Toast! is in the Rail House in Glendale. We'll be playing all the railroad songs we know, like... um... oh yeah!, "I'll Be Working On The Railroad," and, uh... well, if we can think of any others, we'll be doing those too.

Otherwise, come on out and hear our usual mix of tunes and our usual assortment of mistakes. In fact, we'll probably make some new mistakes just for you! That's right, it's "Mistakes By Request" night. Tell us what mistake you'd like to hear, and we'll perform it just for you! Want Steve to utterly forget the chords to "Pretzel Logic" -- just ask! Want Tom to be unable to recall the words to "Hotel California?" -- just ask! Want Dale to break a string?--just ask! Want SG to feedback?--just ask! Want Rick to add barking dogs to a tune?--just ask! Want Mike to play the gong in every single song?--just ask! Want TV to drop his drumsticks -- heck, you don't even have to ask; just watch!

The Rail House is at 40 Village Square in Glendale Ohio. It's a lovely restaurant, too, so come early and eat!

Railroad songs, you say?

"Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe"

"City of New Orleans" (cmon, you gotta know that one)

"Nobody Rides A Train" (Dick Feller)

"Indian Pacific" (Slim Dusty)

"John Henry" (kinda sorta)

"Wabash Cannonball"

And "Teen Angel!" She gets run over by a train...

George, you're indeed the master! Yeah, I _do_ actually know "City of New Orleans" (I do that as a solo/duo song, though the full band doesn't do it.) And I forgot that "Teen Angel"'s tragic death involves a train. "Atchinson...", "John Henry" and "Wabash Cannonball"--yeah, those are familiar but I don't know I could fake 'em. The other two... I'm drawing a blank. I guess I should hit iTunes and see if they're there. :-)
