Copper Penny

| Posted on in music

I went down to Stillwater last night. Played the Copper Penny with a sick Burgess Mark Hunter and Katie came out. It was good to see both of them again. We hit Willies and the Wormy Dog after we tore down. The lead singer for 12 Pearls was playing an acoustic show at the Dog. […]

Change #1

I’m getting ready to head up north to Frankfort with Burgess and some girls. We’re playing at Goob’s Guzzler tonight. Goob’s 20th Anniversary So the only way that we could figure out how to get all four of us and the equipment up to Frankfort without taking two vehicles was to fire up the Brougham […]

If you can’t make Salina on Wednesday, you should check out Wade Bowen at Shotz. Christopher J. Deines just called. He’s thinking about buying and learning to play a bass guitar. That’d be great. Something is better than nothing, and it’d be nice to get someone I know would be a good addition. We’ll see […]

Lines of code

I’m going to have to hunker down for a while and scrape some cash to pay the wolves. Great shows at Martini’s and Bobby […]

That’s right. We played from 7:00pm until 1:30am. If you add up all the time I was on break, I was off the stage for a grand total of 10 minutes all night. We tried to shut down at the pre-arranged midnight and were immediately mobbed by everyone, including the owner, who informed us that […]

Long time no log entry. Headed to Buster’s, not looking forward to it for some reason. I just hope we can do a good job.
