Animial Heads, Bees, Assistanting and ROCK!
Since I have no cool new pics today for you, I am using some of Nathilie's (Spacedlawyer here, @spacedlawyer on Twitter)that she took while she was here a few weeks ago. A Series I like to call "Our Animal Heads" Lots of bits and pieces today, so....
If you are reading this on Saturday, I have a gig tonight in Stillwater, at Charlie's Pub, which I think is really going to rock. 7:30 to 11:30. There is a crazed Wedding in the Hotel tonight and they all came in last night and we fell in love. Total Irish Music Fans who seem to think we are the best thing ever. Clearly, they have taste. If you are around, come down, because it will be some fun. And I'd love to see you!
If you are reading this on Sunday, you missed a REALLY great gig.
I've been doing this Stupid Fiddle Player trick using two bows lately, which started the Fiend weekend, and which I thought would end badly when I tried it, but turned out to ROCK. Tonight, I will try THREE Bows! Can you say "Wall of Sound?"
Really fun Bee Blog up by the Birdchick. She talks about our Bee Interview with MPR the other day. It hasn't aired yet, and of course I will be mentioning it when it does, but you can read about the Adventure of it now on The Birdchick Blog, and see cool pics of Beth (AFP's Really Cool Assistant, who was out last week)
It was great to meet Beth last week. We've, as you can imagine, been working a lot together lately. We talked us some Assistanting we did, which is not something we get to do with many people. If you aren't doing the job, you can't know what it is like, and if you are doing it, you KNOW what it is like. (It's a lot of things and I wouldn't trade it for all the tea in China) We traded a lot of Secret Assistant Knowledge, back and forth, and I learned a lot. Like "How to set up and share a Google Calendar" If that isn't the coolest idea ever, I don't know what IS.
I was suspicious at first, as the first time I tried it a couple years ago, it did nothing but confuse the HECK out of me, but it seems to have been streamlined somewhat. Thanks Beth!
If you can't COME to the gig tonight, send me lots of messages to read on break, I like it when you are with me! Remember, due to my current tech set up, I can READ comments posted here on the blog, but can't post. I can post on Twitter, tho I can't READ replies I get there.
Love and Animal Heads,
