OK, so my show went GREAT and I had so much fun that I actually can't wait to do it again.
Usually when I know I have a show coming up I get all stressed out and I suddenly realize that my songs are total crap and no one will want to hear them. By the time my show rolls around, I have no confidence in myself and I just want to get my set over with ASAP so that the people who came to hear good music won't have to suffer at my hands (and vocal chords) for too long.
But this time, it was different. I had lots of fun and felt good about the songs I played. A huge part of this, I think, was knowing that the band really liked the songs too and had fun playing them with me. My next show with Shannon is on October 13th at a little bar/grill place called Galileo's, and I am PUMPED.
And, since you asked, here is the outfit that took ridiculous amounts of time to pick out even though it really is nothing special and it looks more like an outfit I pulled out of the bottom of the laundry hamper (in the dark) 30 seconds after I stumbled out of bed at 7AM after a long night of wasting away in Margaritaville... or something:
Chris' gray tank top.
Little black shorts.
As fancy as a trash bag.
In other news, today is Chris' 26th birthday! Woo woo! There is a gooshy, lovey post in the works in honor of my main squeeze, so consider yourselves warned.
