Eric Fifteene of Party of One kicked off the night with a solo set. I've known Eric and his band for 17 years (I think). This was the first time we shared a stage. There are so many of these bands from back in the early 00s that I loved that I'm now finally getting to play with. It's weird.
Eric played one of my favorite songs of his, "Skydiver" - which he never plays. So I was quite happy. Also, I learned that it's really called "Sky Dive"....but whatever.
Davis III played second. You may recognize the guy on guitar as Shawn, who also plays guitar in my band. Davis III is Shawn's band. They're entirely instrumental and very very good. It was nice to spread the band love around a bit and highlight this group.
And then there was us!
I already felt lost this Tuesday without a show to play. I even stayed up late because, I think it just felt natural.
I broke another string on stage on my new guitar. It was during the last song this time, so not too terrible. I did change all of the strings on the guitar this week and it was a nightmare. It has these weird tuning pegs that I didn't notice when I bought it. I seriously had a breakdown changing them. Here's hoping I did it right and they stay together for our next show this Saturday!
