Back to the grind

I had a great trip to Colorado over Christmas. Not only did I get to see everybody I was missing like crazy, but I also missed the snow by about 12 hours (woo hoo!). I got to play my harp quite a bit, and since I was so excited to be going to the Dresden Dolls show, I figured out quite a few of their songs on it. I really need to figure out how to get that thing out here. I sold a lot of my stuff before coming out here - the only instruments I have are my bass guitars, but I sold my amp and my cello. I miss having something to play. I found a store in Pasadena that specializes in upright basses that I would love to go check out, but that seems like it could be a bit dangerous. I don't think I could go there and "just look."

The Dresden Doll's show was fun. It's not a genre of music that I've been to a show of before, and it took quite a bit of getting used to the audience singing along to every song and all of the screaming, but Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione are amazing performers.

  1. Agh, wish I would have been there! Weird to hear all those people talking during the performance though. It's like a constant hum of conversation behind the music. Maybe I'm just so used to metal covering everything.
