Lucky Friday

Not that I'm superstitious, but playing a show on Friday the 13th gave me a bit of trepidation. (Two shows, actually, since I also played the opening set with We are Golden.) But as far as I could tell, my lack of luck only manifested itself in forgetting to wear my green "I got Lucky" shirt under my suit, for the pre-planned encore reveal. A small price to pay, I suppose, considering how lucky I am to have such a great group of friends to play music with, and even more friends who seem to enjoy seeing us perform. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped celebrate our 5th birthday!

Now, where's that shirt...

That's just great. Now what are we going to do?

"The musical selections are eclectic and inspired"

That's what Paste magazine says about our musical score in David Russo's gloriously weird and unexpectedly poignant feature film, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle.

Is there an emoticon that means "self-congratulatory"?
If so, please insert here:

John Cage's 4'33" on Banjo

Last week in my Music & Philosophy class we were trying to answer the question, "What is music?" We talked a lot about John Cage. And I performed John Cage's piece 4'33" on the banjo for my students.

HERE is the recording of it.

It sounds like I might have played a little too long, but I think maybe I didn't start right away. Other than that, I think I performed it flawlessly.
