Well, I have to admit it's been a busy week. I'm not asking for sympathy, but here's my schedule from last Wednesday:
In the studio from 12:30 to 7pm. Worked on a lot of guitar parts for two different songs ("What's the Past Got In Store?" and "You're Not Just Another Girl.") It was quite the productive day in the studio. I now have at least a skeleton of every song from my next album on my iPod. I'm really excited about it- I think it will be good!
Regular work 'til 5pm, then I played from 6:30-8:30 at Pyramid in Sacramento. I'll be playing there every Thursday from now on (or at least until further notice.) It was a really good start to my residency. Come on out if you're in the area!
Regular work 'til 5pm, then I opened for Honeyspot at the G St Pub in Davis. What an awesome band! I've played with them a number of times and love their music, and more importantly, they are awesome guys. It was an ideal show to play.
Worked out in the morning, then played in Vacaville from 5-6pm, drove to Walnut Creek and played at the Pyramid in WC from 7pm-11pm. A long day of music, but to be honest, I jammed with my brother Chris after that so I guess 5 hours worth of public shows just isn't enough for me! (Note: realistically 4 hour shows are really difficult, but I'm getting better at them. Saturday's was one of my more successful 4 hour gigs.)
Played basketball with my brother Matt in the morning and got sun-burnt. Went to lunch with my brother Chris, then drove back to Sacramento. Went to dinner with my girlfriend, stopped at the local vinyl record shop to pick up Crowded House's "Temple of Lowmen" and then played at the G St Pub in Davis that night.
It's been busy, but don't ever accuse me of not being a "working" musician. I also found time to catch a little bit of the NBA Finals and the Cubs' game. Both were really entertaining. And here we go again...
