Shows

Scary stuff, in the last week or two things have been happening.

I went to Bali Satay's open mike for the first time in ages and found that they were doing their open mike fight night. I entered and won. I will be in the finals next week.

I spotted an article in the local newspaper about the Pickers Circle. I hadn't seen these folks in ages but I used to go and jam with them once a month at a place in Des Moines. The place closed down and I lost contact with them. I went last night and had a blast. It's a lot of old time music and newer music with an old time feel. There were 4 or 5 guitar players, a guy with a banjo (and he's a monster) and a resonator set up for slide, another guy with a resonator set up for slide, a guy who plays fiddle and mandolin, a really young girl who plays old fiddle tunes (who it turns out has been playing since Xmas, I told her that I officially hated her, she giggled) and a 15-something year old guy who wants to be Buddy Holly.

I got to play guitar for two solid ours. Playing with these folks is a lot of what got me going originally. They do wonders for my hands and ears.

And I will be appearing in their Pickers Showcase on the 27th.

So, two shows (albiet it short ones) in a week. Weird.
