Quick stylee post today. I'm off to drive through the rain to see Daedalus and Jogger at the Echoplex. I'm ashamed to admit that this is my first show at the Echoplex, and I'm very excited to finally go!!
Thanks to KCRW for the tickets. I was lucky enough to win a Twitter giveaway yesterday for my response to the question "Why do you want to go?" And I quote, "@kcrw In HB.Never been to Echoplex. It would be a great early V-Day gift for my girlfriend! We had a son on 11/11/09. She deserves a break!" So off I go with Ms. Rachel Pupa to the Echoplex for a fun date night!! If you're on Twitter, follow @kcrw!!
I've got a little more time, so I will say that going to live shows always motivates me to get out and play live myself. There's something intoxicating about performing your material in front of an audience. If you've ever performed, you know exactly what I'm talking about, and if you haven't, I urge you to go to an open mic and play the guitar and sing or read a poem or tell jokes or wax political on the inanity of bi-partisanship. You won't be sorry that you did.
