Had a good couple of sets at the Rye tonight. They've been promoting the open mike night and it's really catching on, so most nights I go I'm likely only able to get up for a three song set.
It was a *little* less busy tonight, likely due to many people either being away for the March Break or headed to licensed establishments for the night.
QUick breakdown of my setlist:
Lame - Seven Mary Three
Stay - Lisa Loeb (takes me back to a time when I wished I could pull off a pixie cut and distressed jeans like Wynona Ryder. I still can't pull off a pixie cut or distressed jeans, but then again I have a clean criminal record. The lesson here? You win some, you lose some)
Never Had Nobody Like You - M. Ward
July July - Decemberists
This Year - The Mountain Goats
Dog Problems - The Format (was so nervous about this one!)
Piazza New York Catcher - Belle & Sebastian
Ghosts - Laura Marling
All went well considering my throat has been subpar the last few weeks. Gradually getting more comfortable playing in public. Getting good feedback from people.
They're switching from bi-weekly to weekly jams, so you know what this means? I'm putting out a shitload in babysitting money.
