Tomorrow is my last day off until Christmas Day.
Well shoot. Now that's a lot of pressure to make it a good one, right?
For starters, I think there will be some tree-trimming involved, for sure. Oh, also I will be practicing with the awesome guys who are playing with me on December 28th, at the Tritone Bar in Philadelphia.
And yes, that was a shameless plug, in case you were wondering...But really, If you are anywhere near Philly on December 28th, come hang out and listen to some music, starting at 9:30. Another ACL cast member, Clyde Alves will be playing a set, and then I will be playing with Drew, my good friend, Christian, and my brother, Josh. And it's only a $5 cover charge--that's like two lattes from Starbucks. Or the toll for the tunnel into Baltimore. I should know, since I just paid it everyday for like two weeks.
But anyway, it will mostly be original music. However, I will be covering one of Boysetsfire's great songs, The Misery Index. Crazy, beloved Drew is always itching to take something and make it
difficult different, and has convinced me to take it from the 6/8 meter it's already in and play it in 4/4.
He's quite the music nerd. And I love him for it.
Yes, so I am wishing everyone a lovely Monday and greatly anticipating mine.
Oh, and ACL is also opening in Philly on Tuesday. We will be at the Forrest Theater for the next three weeks and if you can, I'd love for you to come see the show. It's kind of what's been keeping me far from home for these past seven month. And kind of a dream fulfilled.
Okay, enough with the shameless plugs, right? Sheesh.
