Long-winded


My apologies for the brevity earlier. As I wait for Matt to pick me up from work to head to practice, I can fill in the details of recent days and weeks.

New York was a blast. A surprisingly good time. We played a tiny place called John Street Grill, we didn't promote it, and no one was really there. It's part of the Original Sessions competition, which I'm still not sure what the pot of gold is at the end of that rainbow. Either way, we've been doing well in the competition and this night was no exception. Our set sounded great, everyone had the right mood, and the few people who were there seemed to dig it (meaning friends and family, and other bands' family and friends).

One of the many perks of Scott, Tara, Chris, and I's recent move to Somerville is the possibility of a practice room in the basement (it'd be cheap... if we insulate properly) and the current acoustic jam room that Scott and I have been utilizing. We're filling out some tunes really nicely, as we've worked together on "Withering On The Vine," "It's Gonna Take Time," "Hands," and a couple others. I'm loving it. Plus, rumor has it that Matt, Mike, Julie, and Melanie are all looking at places in Somerville. Could be a total partytown! Meanwhile, I'm pumped to be doing new stuff in practice, and in small doses. We're really starting to refine some of these tunes. Delicious.

Class starts tomorrow. Bummer. But this semester has cool classes. Cool.

the four of us should stage a raid and take over the apartment above you guys, then we will have one totally kick-ass rockin' party jam house! we will never even have to leave because it will be non-stop hangin' out between those four walls of love. you dig?
