Might As Well Hang Em Up

Friday, February 1st, 2008

I can’t imagine ever having more fun at a show than I did at Wednesday’s CD release. To everyone who came out, I can’t thank you enough. The crowd totally blew me away. I’m still geeked about it.

It was especially great to play with both of my brothers, Brian and Aric, not to mention all the other very special guests: Jon, Thea, Kelly, Chris, Dan, Matt and Gordon. When it comes to music, I don’t play well with others. I unexpectedly add in extra measures, repeat verses, and leave out choruses. I play songs at different speeds and sometimes stop in the middle to talk about peanut butter. These folks not only navigated my shenanigans, but they sounded fantastic.

It seems I don’t really have a point here. I guess I just want to say thanks. Thanks to my family. Thanks to everyone who came out to the show. Thanks to everyone who bought the CD. Thanks to the people who read this garbage. I don’t expect to make it big as a musician. I don’t even think I’m very good. I just do this because it’s a tremendous amount of fun, and it wouldn’t be without all y’all.

It’s a little self-indulgent for me to post these, but some friends of mine took it upon themselves to write about the show.  And while I’m ridiculously flattered by what they wrote, I’m mostly using this as an excuse to direct my meager audience to websites of three wicked-good writers: Arnie, Lacy, Shama.

Thea: Here are more photos from that night. Most of them were taken by Gordon. Some, mysteriously, were taken by Gordon while he was on the stage.
