War Story Wednesdy: Music Edition
So, as I am prone to do...I decided suddenly last night that I needed to go play at an open mic night. I invited my band's horn and violin player via phone about 1/2 hour before the open mic was set to start, but they didn't get back to me until an hour in to it. Another hour later, I played my set, to a fairly positive reaction. Since everyone is half drunk and clapping for everything, it was probably a better response than the average applause I get when playing at The Peoples' Market. I'd say it was a much better reaction than when I used to play at the open mics around Camp Lejeune. Those were rough times...driving almost an hour off the base and in to town, playing a fairly late set, and then coming back...all in time for platoon PT in the morning at 5:45.
However, the "gig" last night got me all revitalized to work on some music stuff today, so I have broken out the old recording rig and will give it a go or two. Still, my Warhammer 40k projects are languishing unfinished, so I might have to work on that a bit too. Tomorrow I will post pictures of my Command Rhino, which is nearing completion.
