What can I say? I feel way less 50% today. In fact, I called in sick to work because I feel- well, sick. I got after it the last four days and played five shows. Each show was at least 2 hours long, and the average was probably more like 3 or 3.5 hours. All the shows went very well, and I'm pleased to say my voice was still in fine shape last night. This morning, however, was a different story as I sounded like a 60 year old woman who has been smoking for 40 years. My body is simply worn out and needed a day to recover.
I honestly don't have the brain power to dissect each show or even remember the details at this point, but I had lots of fun, and can tell that my performance style is getting better at adapting to each new crowd.
I know this isn't much of a blog, so let's quickly get through some other things from this weekend:
The Cubs - atrocious.
Vacaville Farmer's Market - FREE CORN!
Future Mrs. B's niece's birthday party - fun, but I fell asleep on the couch.
The Boxing Donkey in Roseville - people should really come up to my next show- that place is sweet!
Pool Party in Woodland on Sunday - awesome!
The G St Pub in Davis - someone I 100% did not know requested my song "Box of Photographs." I'm fairly certain I botched my own lyrics in the third verse, and she was singing the correct lyrics at the bar... oh the irony!
Weekend overall - great! But I'm still really tired.
