I made a tremendous pot of coffee this morning, but I haven’t had any quite yet. I do hope my fellow employees decide to leave just a little bit in there for me. It may end up quite the opposite, in which I hope they get some before I get to the pot. Either way, there should be some coffee.
I’d like to put together a list of open mics and keep up with it, if you or a venue you play at hosts open mic, please let me know. I know they’re generally on Wednesday and Thursday nights so I’d like to get them up here and see where everyone is headed. If you’re an aspiring musician, open mic night should be your favorite night of the week. You get to get out of the house, and play in front of other people, plus share playing tips and tricks, meet good people with similar interests, and you may even find someone you can jam with. It’s one of the best ways for someone to boost their musical vocabulary. I recommend them, and still try to attend new ones all the time.
While I’m somewhat on the subject of local music, check this out:
Nate goes by Elephino, and knowing Mr. McCormick, this was all done by him. No other musicians. Simply amazing. If you get a chance to see Elephino this summer, I highly recommend that as well. It’s good for the soul. Matter of fact, I think I’ll spin this today for my Local Produce Break at 2:30pm.
(I played Snarky Dave and the Prickly Blues-men’s “Caucasian Blues” yesterday, check them out at http://www.snarkydave.com )
Here’s a vidya as to not break from tradition:
