Two Nights, Three Open Mics, Unusual Performers, No Time

February 6, 2013

Oh no! Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin, into the future! Or is it trippin? In any case, I’ve been back against the wall with time problems concerning this blog and my life in general in the last few days. Oh, my priorities have been there, like I DID do two open mics on Monday and one last night, and I’m running out now to do however many….

But the result is the slowdown on the blog and the inability to lay down more words on this page than what I will leave you with this time. Again, as I have very occasionally done in the past, I must simply leave the videos to do the talking about these adventures.

Oh, I must however mention that after a great night at the Coolin open mic, where I sang backup vocals on a Steve Forbert song with Jake Weinsoff, who had backed me up on violin on Crazy Love, I went on to do a fun Galway open mic…. and then last night, the Ptit Bonheur la Chance. And there, I heard so many great musicians, but with two or three real high points. One of the real high points I wanted to mention, as that was from Carly, who had a unique sound that seemed to be a mixture of Tom Waits, Marianne Faithful and Janis Joplin.
