Sarah and I played our featured spot at the Anodyne Open Mic on Friday, focusing on some of the quieter songs.
- Wandering On
- On the Edge
Aside from the laid back cafe performance, it was a loud weekend of fun shows.Â Thursday I went to the Nomad for Military Special’s CD release show.Â I worked out a sweet deal with Joe, their singer/guitarist, traded CDs and got a screenprinted poster.
Friday after the Anodyne gig, I went to the Entry to see Skoal Kodiak.Â The theme: bands I’ve lost my glasses to.Â Skoal Kodiak was insane.Â I had a feeling the Entry would be a good place to see them.Â Both shows were pretty tiring.Â I don’t usually get that much energy out.
We had practice today, getting ready for the Beat show.Â I just bought a Memory Man digital delay pedal, which was giving me buyer’s remorse until I changed my strings.Â The delay makes everything sound bigger, so the crappy tone of old strings just sounded like mud.Â Now I can tap in the tempo to fake dual harmonizing guitars, which worked out really well today.
