Marching towards the end of summer when the blackberries begin to appear.
My band played our first show today and it went really really well! It was kind of out quite far at this art fair thing. We were supposed to just be playing for free but ended up making $112 just from tips. Now we’re all ready to start booking some shows at venues around the city and I couldn’t be more excited.
Couldn’t find my way into the Andrew Jackson Jihad show tonight, but ended up hanging around the venue and talking with someone for 2 hours who was also trying to get into the show. A new friends makes up for the lack live music tonight.
Today has been no good on me :(
This was from that one perfect day when me and derek were exploring the secret tree tunnel by my house and it was sunny then all of the sudden it started raining but the trees protected us. Why does life have to kill me sometimes?
My band’s drummer finally got back from France, so we had our first practice since the beginning of June today! We also have our first show ever this weekend. PRetty pretty stoked. The new songs are coming along nicely as well!
Successfully made it to all three nights of PDX Pop Now! I had such a blast. Ended up going by myself each night, but that’s the best because I love dancing like a fool by myself, and I ran into people I know and met some cool people. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sad that it’s all over. I mean what can beat a free music outdoor festival with some really rad local bands!?
quick recording of a song I wrote like 20 minutes ago..
I went by myself to an open mic night at a hostel in portland, ended up playing two of my own songs. It was quite a wonderful time. And performing is literally all I care about.
