My band played last night at a great venue in Grapevine, Tx. called Tolbert's. We were scheduled for 9:00 - 12:00 and they requested that we play an additional hour! So that means after teardown I got home around 3:00 - 3:15, asleep around 4:30. As usual, being "age-challenged" I find it difficult to sleep late, so I was up around 9:00am.
The gig was cool - we "introduced" several "new" tunes we've never played in front of "real people"; Reeling in the Years, Running on Empty, Summer in the City, and Galway Girl. We played Maybe I'm Amazed and Touch of Grey for the second time. I'm pleased to say they didn't suck! The new songs weren't great - but we didn't embarrass ourselves - and everyone loved them! Hard to beat that!
Broke a string on my acoustic during Story in your Eyes - that was inconvenient.
And, we got fed. Tolbert's offers *great* food! If you live in the Metroplex make sure you drop in.
