The Hives just played Sacramento and the locals loved it. So much infact that they wanted The Hives to join their professional basket ball team Sacramento Kings. The Hives can relate to being called Kings and happily accepted. Here we are with our new shirts.

Yesterday me Chris and Pelle flew to NY to see the almighty Sonics reunite. They were to do so at the cavestomp festival. A garagerockers wet dream. We flew in the morning from Tacoma International airport in a wierd garagerock coincidence (as The Sonics hail from Tacoma).
We got in to NY at around 5 or 6 or something like that and went straight to Brooklyn to hang out with some friends.
After food and drinks we left for Warzaw in Brooklyn where the Cavestomp festival was to be held.
We started drinking a bit and mingeled around with all garage rockers saying hi to some friends who had all come for the magic event.
After that time had come to see The Lyres play, another one of our favourite bands. They were amazing and Jeff Conolly was in good form throwing his tambourine around.
More drinks, watch the Fleshtones play, more drinks and BOOM!
The curtain opened and the Sonics went straight into He's waiting. Woo haa what a beginning and then it all got even better from there. I was in heaven and we even got to meet them afterwards.
Hung around for a short while and then went to our hotel for an hour of sleep before heading off to Sacramento on the plane for todays show.
Story round up:
It was a magic night well worth the trip!!!
