Hope you guys are enjoying the holidays. We've had some great some time off from shows and we've started working on some new music that we'll hopefully be debuting at shows next month. We're also very happy to announce that Christmas has come a little early for us this year and we recently found out that our first show of 2006 will be in our hometown of St. Louis, opening for one of heros, the man who invented Rock n' Roll: Chuck Berry. This is a dream come true for us and we'd like to share it with as many Ludo fans as possible! The show is Wednesday, January 18th at Blueberry Hill on the U City Loop. Everyone should see Chuck Berry at least once in their life. This show WILL sell out and tickets for this show make great Christmas presents for friends, family, parents, grandparents ...everybody!
Broken Bride is way more ambitious. It's a rock opera first of all, that tells a story from beginning to end, so that's a big difference. Musically, there's just more going on. We really tried to tell the story w/ the music as well as the lyrics and it makes for a different sound for us. But what I do think the two albums have on common is the story-telling and the sense of adventure. Both are supposed to leave you somewhere different that where you were when it began.
This only our second year, but I think we're pretty committed to keeping it going. Last time it was just a real special night - bands that we loved, Christmas songs, ridiculous outfits, and the stage was covered with trees, presents, holly, poinsettias, and animatronic angels for good measure. This year, if we pull off half of what we've been talking about it should be quite a spectacle.
