A quick one while he's away

Short and sweet. That's the way to describe that Beachcomber show. Well, and this entire holiday weekend, filled with BBQs and travel. But we're talking music today, and music is what happened on Saturday. Albeit briefly.

The show was running overtime, and somehow a band before us did an encore, so the sound guy asked us to cut our set in half. The room was packed, but with five bands to pay, Ward said money was tight. Either way, these things don't matter until later -- when you're having fun playing music, what does money matter? And fun we did have, even if Matt was a bit perturbed at first (though he lightened up and put some shades on later). We got to play a fast and fun set, and got the crowd up on the Beachcomber's raised dancefloor. People were feeling the grooves of the beach, and probably feeling the summer slipping away. So what a sendoff!







SET LIST: Don't Get Me Wrong / Carolyn, Don't Leave Like This / Madeline / Lights On / On the Lam / Shotgun Wedding / Shine A Light

Just found out our DC show might be canceled because the club reportedly went under. Hmm. Either way, this weekend we're in for some serious travel with dates in Portland and New London, Ct. Should be awesome -- but remind me to change my oil first (we've got 11,000 miles since an oil change... in just five months!).

Then a Ryan Adams show on Sunday. I've got tickets if anyone wants in, I think we may have extra.
