Last night I went to Davis to catch Not An Airplane at Sophia's in Davis. I really enjoyed the show. I've been friends with Nick (lead singer and creative force behind the band) for a few years now since our days playing Open Mic at the G St Pub.
I hadn't seen this line-up of the band and I was very impressed. Some of my personal favorite aspects of this line-up are the stand up bass, the three part harmonies, the use of the banjo, and their overall cohesive vibe that they give off. Can you believe they actually like each other? It's nice to see a band that is obviously friends with each other and that translates to the audience. Great stuff!
You can check out Not An Airplane at their website HERE.
But why does it have to stop there? My bass player, Dusty Miller, is playing with his old band (The Athens) tonight at Marilyn's. You see, their lead singer Peter Holden is back in town so they are having a reunion show. I'm going to head over and check out the show- it should be a good one.
AND then there is Saturday. I'm playing at the Pyramid Alehouse in Walnut Creek. 7-11pm. Get out there if you're in the area. You can pick up a copy of my new CD, listen to some good tunes, request songs I don't know how to play, request Danzig's "Mother" and I will more than likely play it acoustic, and have any one of Pyramid's awesome beers. It will be a great time!
Other than that, I'll try to catch some baseball and spend some quality time with Mrs. B. I'm guessing it will be a fun weekend... especially if Jay Cutler rains down touchdowns on the Seahawks.
