A Legendary Weekend: Part II, or, TLG and The Benevolent and Protective Order of The Elks

Fuzzy memories:  The Legendary Goodtimes @ The Elks Lodge in Medford

The Legend continues at a blinding pace!  The blog, on the other hand, is a way behind schedule.  Womp womp.   Obligatory tongue-in-cheek blog post for a gig that happened over a week ago, commencing now....

TLG on the marquee!  Yeah baby!

For the very first time, The Legendary Goodtimes were honored to play Medford's Elks Lodge.  It was also a rare opportunity for the band to play an all-ages event (and to haul all their gear up two flights of stairs to the most excellent Elks ballroom).

Taxidermy + local sponsors + Mark Anderson = TLG back with those block rockin' beats!

The festivities that evening were in support of The Maslow Project, a local outreach program for homeless youth and their families.  The Goodtimes believe in doing Good Things, and were delighted to offer their music in support of those in need.

 When I say "Legend," you say "Dairy!"


TLG played a quick and dirty opening set.  Oh snap!  The Goodtimes love a 45 minute set.  It requires the same amount of energy as a 2 1/2 hour set, but without the need to ration one's strength.  Go wild, baby!

 Survive In Peace!

Benjamin of SIP getting crazy with his bad self!

Up next was Southern Oregon's rock trio, Survive In Peace aka SIP!  This was Goodtimes' first show with SIP, which the band found to be an agreeable and groovy experience.  Lucky for everyone, TLG and SIP have another bill to share this very weekend.

 Black Ink Breakdown!

BIB rockin the Elks!

The final band of the evening hardly needs an intro on this page.  The Legendary Goodtimes and Black Ink Breakdown have played many shows together over the last year; TLG considers these fellas Brothers In Rock, not to mention bonafide Southern Oregon Rock Royalty.

Keep Calm and Chive On.

The gigging season just wont quit!  Check back later for the highlights of The Second Annual Unofficial Chive Meetup @ The Rockytonk Grill and Saloon in Medford!  It was an EPIC night.  You want to see the pics.  You want to read the bad jokes.  Come back soon...

Chive on, Goodtimers!
