F.P.O - Did You Know?
Posted on February 12, 2008Five Pointe O Did you know? Yes, it's random birthday fact time. Did you know that Casey (keyboards) and Eric (guitar) have the same birthday but a year apart? Both born on September 6th - Casey in 1975, Eric in 1974. Did you know that besides having the same birthday, Casey and Eric are related? They are cousins. All true. Something even more random? Sean (bass) was born 2 years, 2 months, and 2 days before Tony (drums). Sean's birthday: May 26, 1980 Tony's birthday: July 28, 1982. Which brings us to Sharon (guitar) and Daniel (vocals). Rivalling Casey & Eric, did you know that Daniel was born almost exactly a year after Sharon? There's only 5 days in it. August 15 (Daniel) vs. August 20 (Sharon). And Sharon has the same birthday as yours truly. We shit you not. With timing like that, we bet their live set is t-i-g-h-t.
"Unbelievable"..."Insane"..."Biggest in-store ever at Crows Nest"...just a few words heard during Five Pointe O's in-store appearance/performance at the Crows Nest in Crest Hill, Illinois this past Friday (June 7). Roadrunner US sales regional Scott tells that over 1,000 people came out to meet and welcome back the band from their past few months on the road with Mushroomhead (see, this is what you would call a hometown appearance for the band). "If you've ever seen the Minor Threat home video of their live show at the 9:30 Club, then you'll have an idea of what the crowd was like at this show," explains Scot. After signing goods and what not for a couple hours, Five Pointe O took the stage (actually, out back in the car park) at 8:15pm, just as the sun was going down. Scott tells, "it made for an amazing backdrop to a set that was the tightest, most out of control, rocking effort I've ever seen them give...all you could see was bodies, sweat, and more bodies." Five Pointe O, welcome home. Now don't get too comfortable, ya hear...your upcoming summer US tour run with Coal Chamber starts July 5th.
