It was packed this past Thursday. The Thirsty Soul Open Mic Night is picking up. Speaking of picking, here I am picking out a few tunes. I’m digging the cryptic introduction.
I streamed this entire event, with all of the performers, live on 11/1/2018 on Facebook, draining my battery down to 7%. Looks like I should grab a portable charger if I’m going to make this a habit. I present my set in this video.
This open mic night is relatively new (3 weeks old), and so far it’s great. The guy who hosts it, Phil Romeo, shreds the guitar, and joins me on percussion during a couple of these tunes.
A good description and an even better homophone. Mixed with ham, it is priceless. #bukowski
In this penultimate liner notes episode for my 2011 album, Deader Than Me, I feature “Other Half” and “Spirals.” Both thematic, “Other Half” pontificates about those cropped Facebook photos with disembodied arms; and “Spirals” is a mantra about relaxing into the imperfection of life.
