On Tuesday, September 28th, I’ll be playing a 30-minute gig at local haunt The Red Devil Lounge. I’ll be playing at the start of the open mic going on that night. The show starts promptly at 7:30pm. The 28th also happens to be my birthday, so I finally get to fulfill my hedonistic desire to play show on my birthday. Come on down and have a Bourbon.

To Hell And Back

I’m not exactly certain where it all went wrong. Truly, good intentions only got me so far. For now I’ll attribute my absence to the lost summer, and leave it at that.

But now I’m back.

I’ve been frequenting an open mic at the Red Devil Lounge hosted by local music guru KC Turner. It’s quite an impressive pool of talent for a Tuesday evening, and has proven inspirational.

The “The” Demos

I thought it best to start simple. I sat down in my studio with the intention of recording some songs direct to tape, without overdubs or fuss. What emerged that afternoon was a collection five songs, some old, some new, and some in between; The Best Years, The Brighter Side Of You, The Queen Of Alone, The Chain Parade, and The Way It Spins. Funny how things come out sometimes. No, they are not all inspired by a British musical and multimedia group that emerged in the late 1970s. I’ll leave it to you to find the thread.

I have posted to the “music” page two of the five demos that were the result of that afternoon. Sure, each likely has more grandiose visions of what they could be, but for the moment they remain as I intended them: simple.
