First off, FINER made it the next round of the battle of birdy’s! We had a great night, met new people and as I was swing my guitar over my head in the air I almost hit Ethan in the face. He matrix styled his way out of it. Thank you Mr. Reeves! So thanks to those who came out and we hope to see more of you in October. Also we’ll be at the Melody Inn next week on the 25th and we have a great night of music before we hit the stage. Glass Halo and The Post Script are two rocking Indianapolis bands who always light it up. Josh Eagle and Harvest City out of Ohio and Purgatory Hill will start off the night. Purgatory hill is getting press on The Onion’s website. Very cool!
Okay, enough promotion… I have had a crazy few weeks. Every once and awhile I leave my lair of songwriting to head out into the real world. Well, I was on the plane coming back from NY and I was lucky enough to sit next to Sandeep from the web sensation The Guild. Check out www.watchtheguild.com. So first off he was very smart and super cool. Second, this show is so funny, I almost died laughing. The premise is about a bunch of online gamers of a World of War craft style game who meet in real life and drama and fun ensues. I lived in LA where everyone is an actor and I hung out with a dungeons and dragons improv group so this show hits very close to home. Everyone is quirky and hysterical and your neighbor is the stunt guy for every random kung fu movie on the back shelves of Blockbuster. So, I got invited to meet the cast at Gen-Con. AWESOME! I could not believe how many people where there and how many new games were being developed and how many guys look good dressed as the Riddler. The Guild had a huge line and I got to cut the line…not cool I know, but I was running to help a friend with a video shoot in Muncie so I had an excuse. The show was created and stars Felicia Day from Dr. Horrible’s sing-along who is way too hot and way too talented. The cast was so friendly. Now, when I meet famous people, I get very amped up and excited so I was running my mouth and talking to everyone around me. I offered to take pictures for several fans waiting in line…their loss as I could hardly keep my hand straight. And offered several antidotes to those who were deciding what to buy. “Oh, get the one that matches your desktop.” Or “Everyone needs three copies of season 1 on DVD!” I was down with the cause… and why shouldn’t I be. The show is funny and I got everyone’s autograph. I now have a personal connection and will tell everyone about the show. I also got Keith Richards autograph when I was a teenager and look how that has helped the Rolling Stones!
Be at the Melody Inn Wednesday August 25th. We go on late around 11:30 or 12 but the whole night will be Incredible!
