Todd and I were both saddened that Lara Michell cancelled. She is not feeling well, and we are gonna reschedule something for 2005. Which is good, because it looks like the singer/songwriter showcase night over at White Eagle will be ending as of January (and with it the steady stream of guests on the program). That is another bummer. It makes me feel guilty — I should’ve supported that night better — bought more food and gotten all liquored up. Crap – what a good night this has been in such a great venue.
*Sniff sniff* Moving on, it has been awhile since we’ve done a REGULAR show (regular meaning a show where we just play songs off cds) so it felt good to do one tonight. Todd ran the whole thing tonight, I got to kick back and play co-host and that felt good too.
Make sure you call Todd during the next two shows and give him some love! Or cookies! Lord knows he will be rocking out harder than I’m physically able to (I’m getting old and crotchety — the first signs of aging were apparent when I listened to a Neil Young album and liked it).
