The Day We Rocked Dubai

In 2008, our band The Lounging Criminals submitted a few original songs to compete for the Shamal Battle of the Bands.  The winning band would open the 2008 Dubai Desert Rock Festival, that year being headlined by Muse and Korn.

We got the call that we were chosen to compete. It was a great trip with the guys (Aziz, Fawaz, Yousef, and myself), rented a villa, did all kinds of crazy stuff; and most importantly, on March 6, we rocked the house with our original music.

 At the end of the day, we didn't pull off the win (we got 3rd place, out of 11 regional bands), but we did get to see Velvet Revolver and attend the show.

 Here are a few pics of that night, and of course I was repping the Blues!
