Upcoming Schedule:

Tuesday, 1/20/04, Smash Studio A

  
It was a night that Rich Brotman couldn't attend as his leg is still on the mend.  Bill Siegel of www.Everlounge.com fame was gracious enough to sit in for him on keys as well as singing a few songs.  It was a night where there were no guests in the newly improved Studio A at Smash so it was just us five freaks to play the music to ourselves.  It seemed pretty special from the outset as most of the songs we were playing were tighter than usual.  Trister had his Gentleman Jack out for all to sip on but it didn't seem to make too much of an impact on our sloppiness.  Almost everything we played seemed better than usual.

Kev, Coffee and I worked on Slipknot before the jam and Bill and I worked on it the night before at Carpetsteen, another in the long list of Deadstein cover bands.  In any case, the practice seemed to have a positive result in the Help --> Slip Franklins was much better than usual.  While not perfect it was close, especially the second portion of the Slipknot riffing that came after the Slipknot jam.  Good stuff to be a part of.  Rhapsody in Red was excellent until Trister broke his string during the end jam and wouldn't be there to bail us on the Rhapsody riff.  Nevertheless, it was smokin!  We played right up to the red light at 11:00 p.m. when I called a halt to the Sugar Magnolia due to red light conditions.  Smash was also kind enough to respect the $47 credit they owed us from last week so the very nice sounding Studio A even seemed like a bargain.  It won't feel that way next week when we are back to $47/hour.  We also get through our first Hava Nagila which was a bit of a lark but with a bit of practice could turn into a real fun little jam.  Shakedown was really good even the jam at the end that we used to be so bad at.  It's hard to be more positive about a jam so I will contain it but it was a good one.  Hopefully Coffee got the kind tape of it all.

Kevin, Coffee-Bro and I met at the Fresco Taco where I had my typical C-5.  Almost as good as the Rhapsody.  There was little traffic getting in but the temperature was frigid..

Thanks again to all for having me down. I know I've seen you fellows many times now and I have to say that was one of the tightest and most powerful I've ever heard y'all. So glad to have been a part of that night. Also thanks Brotman for letting me sit in your chair for the night, anytime you need a fill-in-give me a call. Mitch, Send me the CD...thanks.

I have a potential problem with Tuesday's jam. I hit something bad on 95 yesterday....bent a rim. I refuse to give a dealer 400+ for a new one, just bought a used rim on ebay. I doubt it will get to me by Tues and I'm not driving in on a donut. The only other solution is the train but that means no pedalboard cause I ain't luggin that thing around mid-town!

I vote your presence is more important than the pedal board. We'll manage.

False alarm, rim was not bent after all. I got bad info from the jerk off kids at the Gulf station. I should make them buy the rim I won on ebay. See you guys at seven.
