FU = Champions - Sept. Wrap-Up - October Primer

FU's Picks:  
You Can't Pick Just One!

FU Wins!***FU Wins Best Local Band in DC 2006***
The votes are in and, thanks to you, we won the "A List" poll for best band in DC

We were in a dogfight with over 50 of DC's most popular groups including our nemesis: 
Ted G-to-the-arber.  Thanks for putting FU over the top!                                                rock

Limo Rides all around!
Check out our awesome trophy!

Sunford***Sunny Celebration at Kpax!***
Big congratulations to Sunny and Kevin!  Baby number three is on the way!  Be at Kirkpatrick's on Oct 14 to celebrate Sunny before she goes on maternity leave!

We're in the process of auditioning singers, so if you know anyone who can fill Sunny's leopard-colored sneakers as a FU frontperson
please let us know.

 ***Shebeen & Broadlands Wrap-Up***

Big thank FUs to everyone who showed up at Auld Shebeen in Sept.  The place was packed all night and we saw many FU friends from times past!  Good times! 

Special thanks to Amy & JillC,  Sarah, Mike from Sully's, the Bandbo Crew, the GNO ladies, Kevin, and Rich "Big Tuna."

We also want to give props to all those who danced it up in the rain at Broadlands Live.  Who cares about a little lightning?

CGrill***FU Back for the Attack in Arlington***
We have two big Arlington-area gigs coming up this month.  On the 26th (Thursday) we make our first appearance at the Clarendon Grill opening for Scott's New Band (formerly LRS) (Chris also on drums).     


We need a big FU Army presence to ensure future Cgrill dates!

On Sunday the 29th, FU returns to the Final Mile Stage at the Marine Corps Marathon.  If you are running, let us know and we will give you a shout from the stage!

pickelsChris just loves Vlasic pickles.  He eats them with everything:  Sandwiches, pizza, cereal, ice cream, other pickles.

Ok, so he might have a little problem...
obi wanSunny suggests that you learn to draw Star Wars characters.  Her anatomically-correct rendering of Obi Wan is to the left. 

The site has easy-to-follow instructions for drawing each character. 

Our favorite = Porkins.
night songsRob says get your 80's on with Cinderella's Night Songs.  A band we saw live way too many times in the 80's. 

We definitely appreciate their wailing now.  Who doesn't shed a tear to Nobody's Fool?  Rob cranks it up to "Shake me!"

englishGreg G likes to eat.  So, he recommends you pick up the Olive's Table by Todd English. 

Every recipe includes at least 10 garlic cloves and one stick of butter.  That's good eatin'!

5150Greg Y recommends the Ford F150.  He pimped one of these out to create the FU Mobile and it has been like a rock ever since!
FU Fans of the Month:  Amy and Jill C! Greg G says:   guacamole!
C sisterzAmy and Jill C. make the cut for FU fans o' the month.  You want good pics, they will take em'.  You want good times, they will bring em'.  They have logged more FU hours than other FU-related individuals!

Give them four thumbs up when you seem them at a FU gig!

Mix this up in a bowl for dipping delight:

2 avocados
1/4 red onion
1 clove garlic
1 small ripe tomato
juice from 1 lemon
black pepper, salt, chili powder to taste.

Greg Y would add some jalapeños.
