Another night at the Bean

Fun. That’s what it was this evening. Here’s the set List:

  1. You Know
  2. Dogs at the Door
  3. We Get Over
  4. Rehearsing Our Goodbyes
  5. Gravity
  6. Feeling Good
  7. A Jerk’s Lament
  8. Jesus In Chains
  9. Mind This Mind
  10. My Fear of Losing You

Tonight introduced the first ever use of the Animoog in my live shows. In rehearsal I’ve been putting it on my knee to play “You Know” but I failed to account for how smooth my suit is. The damn thing kept slipping off so I had to put it aside. I play it with my toes for “Dogs at the Door” and it went pretty well. Joe even got a picture:
Busker Toes

I capo’d the wrong fret for “Jesus in Chains” and ended up singing it half a step lower than normal but it turned out alright. And then I really needed some water halfway through “Mind This Mind”, but the show must go on, right? Overall I felt good about the evening.

After my set I ran into a lovely woman at the bar who really enjoyed it. It’s always nice to get good feedback from someone you don’t know. Makes you think you might not totally suck.
