…was awesome. At least, the 20 people or so who showed up seemed to think so. I rocked out and debuted a new feature, in which I picked a random member of the audience to play drums with a Wiimote on a cover of the Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Just Like Honey”. It actually worked perfectly! And then — as the audience wanted an encore — my occasional bandmate and buddy Aaron Archer came up and used the Wii to back me up on a cover of the Velvets’ “Heroin”. Which was so tasty — the drums were all reverby for “JLH” and I ran my acoustic guitar through my Vox ToneLab, so it was all noisy and feedbacked and it sounded beautiful. Everyone also enjoyed my cover of “Northern Sky” by Nick Drake; the rest and majority of the set were originals, including some new stuff I haven’t played or recorded yet.
In fact, you’ll be able to hear it, I think: I recorded the show on video. If the sound’s not too awful, I’ll put the songs up on YouTube.
Thanks so much to those of you who attended. Maybe next show we’ll get a bigger crowd.
