Los Angeles, October 31st 2009 – It was 10:00PM on Halloween night, as patrons, free-loaders, fans of Shiloe, and people dressed in a variety of costumes (our favorite being the guy in the full Gumby suit), stood in line halfway down the side of the canyon surrounding our mansion.
They had come for the party of a lifetime – a chance to see Shiloe streamed live over the internet for CWG Magazine’s first-ever live concert series, and of course the opportunity to party until 4AM in a secluded mansion in the Hollywood Hills. After half of the people in line funneled in, the mansion was over capacity and people were turned away.
Party-goers as far as the eye could see funneled through the mansion’s front door, down three flights of stairs, and out onto the lower balcony (our mansion had 4) for the kegs, full bar, and scheduled performance.
Anticipation grew, as the sound engineer running the live stream fussed over the sound check; he wanted everything to sound perfect, and it did. The audience was half-lit, as the band finally ripped into their opening song; an hour later than scheduled. The stream went off without a hitch, and the crowd exploded, dancing through Shiloe’s whole set. As Shiloe attempted to put their instruments down, a guy dressed in a full Gumby suit grabbed the microphone and demanded the band do an encore. The crown roared in approval. Shiloe put their instruments back on and rocked the crowd for the rowdiest encore in Halloween history.
After a short meet-and-greet with fans, Shiloe packed up, and the crown funneled back into the mansion for drinks and all-night music from three of L.A.’s best local DJs.
Apologies to the over-flow crowd that couldn’t get in, feel free to come to our next event.
