Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

last night

there was a message on the answering machine when the wife got home ... I had mentioned my friend Tera a day or so ago ... she had been in a car accident a month ago ... she left a very funny message on the machine tuesday about her benefit concert (regardless that we have known each other for 4 years she still feels the need to explain who she is when she leaves a message ... not just "Hi this is Tera") ... so last night (but I digress) ... there is a message from the music pimp at Peoples (the place where the benefit is going on) saying that the opening act has cancelled (who the FUCK would cancel on a benefit concert ... geeze) ... and asking if I wanted to open the show ... The wife called back as soon as she heard the message and said "yes he would" ... I found this out when I got home ...

so I changed clothes and headed out for the sound check ... the entire evening was a mess ... no one there knew who was going to play that evening ... the order ... anything ... I did my sound check about half an hour after the show was originally supposed to start ... and went onstage 2 hours after the show was originally supposed to start ... ack ... still ... it looks like Tera raised some cash ... she played for awhile (and very well considering that she is in a full body brace)

I played a great set ... about an hour ... I have no idea what I played now except it was the usual stuff ... mostly funny stuff ... and I closed with a thunderous version of Alex Harvey's Shake That Thing ... the audience seemed to get into it ... so I didnt lose her any cash ...

and MAN was I up too damn late ... I watched her set ... it was VERY funny ... she has this breather thing that checks her lung capacity ... and there was a contest to see who could do it best ... everyone paid 5 bucks for the priviledge ...

The evening ended up being a success over all ... IMNSHO ...
