celebrity spotting at my gig

Last night was a great gig..first full gig with the new band and it sounded great! I was definitely feeling good on stage (despite sweating off about 5 pounds), and the crowd seemed to be into it too, which always helps. When I finished, my friends informed me that Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were at the end of the bar (and rumored to have liked the set). So I politely introduced myself (to which Scarlett Jo said “You were great”). I’m not normally into all that admiration of the stars and such, but something about that, and giving them both a cope of my new EP just felt really good. After that it was just a great night of meeting other musicians (some fellow Californians), and talking with folks who enjoyed the set. Really just a positive vibe all around. My kind of night!

a promising end to a stressful day

I don’t like it when things don’t go my way. Well more specifially, it seems so unnatural to who I am. I have always considered myself lucky in that seems thing to generally work out for me. So when I learned both shows I had booked in CA fell through, it came as a bit of shock. Followed by a few days of scrambling to find alternative venues to play. But today it seems promising again! Thanks to finding a booker in SF who seems mad cool (and actually responds quickly!), and luckily getting the booker in Sacramento on the phone tonight, it seems all may not indeed be lost. And I dont know for sure yet, but both seem promising that I will be back to having 2 shows to look forward to while out in California..which is good, cause the show in SF is a week away, and I’d like to be able to tell people about it!!! Now I’m just hoping tomorrow wraps these up and I can focus on what I want to instead of stressing..getting people out to the show(s) and playing!

I love good email days!

Had a show tonight and hung out with some friends afterward. Got back and had an email asking about me playing a proposal, a confirmation for a show in CA, an email from a restaurant about playing there regularly, and a confirmation for a wedding! All in all, a great group of emails! Here’s to staying busy!
