Tour Diary: Hot Toddies #3

Catch the first part of the The Hot Toddies’ Tour Diary here, and the second part here.

Fuck yeah, Liverpool! One the most lively crowds we have encountered. We were surprised to be greeted by Abraham Lincoln, Bono, and a plethora of sexy secretaries. The theme of the show was “politics” in honor of a friend’s birthday. We were excited to play with the host bands, Hilary & the Democrats and Town Bike, both incredibly fun and high energy, we couldn’t ask for more!

It was incredible to have the whole crowd singing and dancing along to our set. Foxes! were dancing up a storm and falling all over themselves. When the set was done, a chant began…”MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!” and we had no idea what to do. Apparently, the crowd was demanding an encore, and we had no clue what to play. Sooooo . . . we rocked on with “Please, please me” by the Beatles, slightly scared that it might no go over so well. We were wrong! The conga line started and everyone was screaming along. We felt like true rockstars and can now claim that we played the fuckin’ Beatles in Liverpool!

After the show was done, we were escorted to a pub that happened to be having an open mic night. There was a dude playing Tom Petty covers that we felt needed to take a break. Jessica and Heidi requested that we play a song the end the night, so a large portion of “The Fox Toddies” took stage and sang a guilty pleasure that we had been enjoying in the van since we arrived in England. Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic” was the perfect song to end the night. Half of us were singing, the other half just drinking and enjoying ourselves on stage. The rest of the pub was yelling right along. Who knew that we all remembered the words to that song?!

We took the party to Jim’s house, where we spent the rest of the night singing and drinking Jameson (not a huge surprise). Around 3 PM the next day, the Toddies were all showers and finally ready to take the daylight hours. We hit up a few awesome vintage stores before getting on the road to Preston.
