A little bit about Archon

Ok, I did a show, which didn't seem like it was going to happen ... and then it did, and then it didn't, and then it happened. I'm glad it did, it was a fun show. I managed to get through 9 songs in an hour, yeah I digressed a little.

Trophy Wife
Woman I Want
Jordan Cochran
Hey Dad
How Can I Miss You?
Nice Guys
Hides (the "so abysmal I should quit playing solo shows" version, I wish I had finished with a good version, Hides is very dear to me)

Other than that, I think I only played two other songs of mine all weekend, oddly enough the last two on the above list.

And with that I am done. Thank you everyone who has come to a show, bought a CD, talked back to when I was on stage (even the Osmond lady), laughed at my jokes, or spoke nicely of my serious songs. You have made the last 8 years the best of my life. My intention is to record one more CD, I have about 8 or 9 songs toward it. I want decent recordings, especially, of Ghosts and Pine City Motel Blues. We'll see if I get it done.

But, now Toyboat is the focus. And more about the weekend from that point of view in a bit.
