Good morning! It's about 20 after 8 on this rainy Saturday. Much better rested than I've been in a short while. Coming to the end of a busy patch as far as gigs and activities. Anyone who reads my more-or-less daily drivel knows I like to alternate busy with idle. I welcome these busy patches and then bid them adieu.
Music news. A successful gig last night at Anchors Away. It really helped, I think, to have a rehearsal in there, as we had some nice tight endings. So that's now a resolution of mine: get together before the gig and run stuff. I love to play, and I love to practice, but I don't love rehearsing- so my rehearsals are short and sweet. Remembering band practices that had to wait until someone drove around the block and got high, and then dragged on forever. No mas on that!
We had a fairly good crowd, at least for awhile. Some friends came down, one of whom I hadn't seen in 15 years. And after the gig, went down with another guitar player and heard a band playing outside near the square. So it was a good social night as well. Social is good. It's something I could stand to do more of.
This afternoon I have something with the Samba Llamas, at the Art Fair on north 4th. 3 to 5. Supposed to be an outdoor event, including us. It's starting to rain now, so we'll see how it plays out.
Next week is nice and boring. Looking forward to resuming my workouts(Cardio or weights), doing some more practicing, and putting new stuff up on YouTube. Wish I'd brought my camera last night, but there's always next time. And it looks like we'll have a next time at Anchors Away.
That's all the news I can muster at this early hour. Thanks as ever for reading. Happy Saturday to you! I'm gone. More later.
