Tuesday, July 20, 2010. Thanks to some friends of friends, I was told about an open mic at the Downtown Grill & Brewery. This is no shabby bar! It’s huge, they brew their own beer, and apparently whenever I’m in town, they have $1.50 drafts! AND…open mic performers get a free beer…AND…my friends like to buy me beer…wait…I think I’m getting a little off track…
I did manage to get quite a posse going last night! Old Webb friends, and even a childhood friend from my Sacred Heart days! Scott Hinds slaps bass like no other. Unfortunately, I wasn’t taping when he stood on his bass (swan lake style, that boy’s got panache!) and kept playing without missing a beat!
Then of course when it was my turn, my guitar strap gave out in the middle of a song, and there I was singing “New Disasters,” and it was a complete disaster! Sound guy saved me–slid a large box near me so I could rest my foot on it–but I was already messing it all up…messing it up so good.
Thanks to the hottest gang in TN and Destiny, the host, for being so supportive!
