It is Sunday at 2pm and for all intents and purposes i have just now truly become awake.
If this is not your first visit you may have noticed that i’ve put a logo of sorts at the top of the page. I typically eschew such fancy graphic affairs, but i’m rationalizing it because there are honest to goodness strangers arriving here for the first time and i need some sort of branding to greet them. The wonderfully messy font is called chic decay, and it is free. I had to do some major kerning and minor undecaying in photoshop to get it to my liking.
If this is your first visit: hello. I made a logo just for you!
In less than seven hours I am due to make my monthly appearance at The Sidecar Bar for their monthly open mic night, hosted by the Sidecar All-Stars, an affable jazz trio that plays between sets.
After my meant-to-be-one-but-turned-out-to-be-two year hiatus from playing original music, an outing to the Sidebar open mic over the summer was the first time i played in front of anyone but a captive audience of friends. Much to my shock, the crowd wound up liking me a bit. Subsequently, i’ve been trying to attend every month.
Seven hours doesn’t feel like enough time between barely awake me and rocking the mic me, especially since I am completely unclear on what i’ll be playing. That’s what i get for sleeping in.
