Well, another live show is now behind us. We played outside of The Lost Leaf in the middle of the First Friday art walk, which is quite a spectacle these days. As exhausted (physically and emotionally) as I was, I felt really good about the show (both during and afterward). I want to send out a big thank you to all of you who came down and played a part – whether in the audience, on the stage, or behind it. I apologize for not being more available to talk to you all after the show.
Here’s a specific list of people I want to thank:
Karina – for putting up with such an eccentric, focused and stubborn aries. (me)
Blain – for being such a good drummer, but more importantly, for being a great friend.
Mike – for having patience with me and these live shows, and knowing you’re a big part of this project even when you’re not such a big part on stage
Rick – for doing such an amazing job playing the pedal steel with us – it sounded like heaven on stage, seriously.
Dan – for flying all the way from Ohio to work so hard in so many ways, and for almost making me kill myself
James – for being so supportive and loyal and hard-working and generally awesome
Jim – for helping us set up that giant projection screen in the nick of time and for screaming loudly during the set
Kim – for tearing that walrus into pieces like only you could
Jen – for making all of our dreams come true
Dave – for all your help with sound and for that DVI-to-VGA adapter
Bela – for bringing and setting up your amazing subs, you made everything SO much better
Chad – for bringing over and setting up one of your projectors
Mickey – for helping out and keeping things moving
Nelson – for the video accessories
Ryan – for your speakers and for helping us move that bitch ass stage
Tato – for letting us keep our gear in your house (we still have some in there?)
ALSO, I would love for any of you who saw our show to review it here in the form of a comment. Yeah, I know, that means you have to register, but I really would like to hear from you. (and i’m sure those who couldn’t make it will be just as interested) I think you can post pictures in comments? (did any of you get a good picture of Kim tearing apart the walrus??)
