Not British play various venues around town, including the 710 Beach Club and Canes, but they say it’s the private parties where they tend to run into trouble.
“At the end of our sets,” says guitarist Sal Filipelli, “sometimes we start messing around with sound effects, and we turn amps up a little louder. We sometimes play a song called ‘I Miss the Giggles’… At shows, we’ll let certain rap artists come freestyle on the song. On this Friday night, the song went on for about 15 minutes, with extended solos and various performers singing. It was getting late, probably close to midnight, and it was getting loud. The lady that lives next door – who must be in her 80s – yelled out the window from upstairs. We knew she’d be trouble when she said she called the cops, when we were just setting up our equipment at five o’clock!
“In what I guess was an attempt to ask us to turn the music down, she fell down the stairs on her porch and broke her hip. The ambulance and the police came and the party ended, but not before they arrested one partygoer who was drunk and kept laughing and pointing toward the lady on the stretcher and saying, ‘I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.’ ”
In late 2011, someone broke into guitarist Sal Filipelli’s house and stole three guitars, a bass, two computers, two recording microphones, a car stereo, piano tuning tools, and an iPod. Photos of the stolen gear were posted on his Facebook page.
