The Bump and (Gourmet) Grind

So went to an open mike that I hadn't been to before. A place called The Gourmet Grind. A little place in Johnston. Talked to the young woman at the counter for a bit. Turns out that I am the only person to show up to play in awhile. And may be the only person to be in the shop all evening if things go normally. Seems that the evenings are not strong for this place. I start playing for the young woman behind the counter and get through two songs before anyone comes in (a very nice couple who I think I have met before). I play the rest of the set for them and they go just before the last two songs. I decided to not use the house PA since it's a small room. I sang wonderfully (IMNSHO) and played very well. Pity that there were not more folks there to hear it.

Here is what I think I played. The order might be different and I might have done one more song but I was calling them as I went along.

Low Self Esteem
Color Of Your Eyes
Product Might Be Hot
Almost Beautiful
Rockaway Beach (my slow motion version of a Ramones song)
Don't Go Home
Golden Age Of Silicon
Bang My Bald Spot
