Well, i survived a small portion of the bike ride only to be sent packing by the boys and their quick pace and constant pedalling.
Many interesting events occured in the intervening week, the least of which was a tonight’s very positive open mic outing at The Sidecar (and the most of which i can’t really go into. yet). Their open mic is the first Sunday of every month, and they have a fun house combo that churns out funky fill-in music and some outrageous covers. If you’re in town on Monday you can see the sequel, my debut at XPN World Cafe’s Philly Rising open mic. I seem to have re-discovered my confidence, but i’m still a little nervous about doing my own songs. We’ll see how it goes.
Meanwhile, i must link to the utterly fantastic Skyline Online, an engaging architecture blog penned by Inquirer critic Inga Saffron. Also, a re-plug for the sidebar-linked The BM Rant, who i really need to engineer a run-in with at a Philly show, eventually.
At least in this instance of an absentee-week from blogging i can truly claim that i was busy ;)
