First Gig in North Carolina

I was very surprised that a friend of mine from the local band Early Morning Swim asked me if I would like to play The Cat’s Cradle. I thought about it for one second and said yes. The Cat’s Cradle is after all one of the best clubs in the area. I couldn't believe that I get to play music on the same stage as Gillian Welch, Cat Power, Kristin Hersh, Tortoise, and Neko Case,

It’s called The Sunday Showcase and the only promotion is what the bands tell their friends. They sent us about 50 tickets color coded so they will know exactly who you came to see. The only local bands that play there are pretty big nationally. Like bands on Merge records, Southern Culture On The Skids and Trailer Bride. I think they want to see who you are and what you have to offer.

I will not bring in a lot of people but all of my close friends will be there and that’s enough for me. If the weather permits it should be a good time, and I’ll post my review of how it went and the great acts I get to see.

I'm so jealous! And so sad that I can't be there. I played Naked Man Pen for G this morning. You continue to inspire me.
