Headline: State Of The Union
Greetings and Salutations!
In going through the process of straightening out the kinks in this
Notes archive and then re-establishing all the
linkage, it occurred to me from re-reading much of my previous writing
that I used to have a lot more to say. About the band, music, life in
general. Or rather, it used to be easier to muster up the energy to
get my pithy little scribblings on line for y'all to peruse. As it is,
I've let three gigs go by with nary a mention, and gigs are often the
least of it all.
Well, I'm going to make myself a....er, um...Pioneer Day
Resolution (good thing I live in Utah or I'd have to wait
until September to motivate myself) to keep more current in this part
of the site. No, I'm still not going to talk about the last few gigs,
but I am going to give you the State Of The Union and let you know
what lies ahead, as near as I can make out through the heat haze.
First of all, we're very excited for this upcoming concert at
Getty's. Matt Meldrum and Jason Savelsberg from the FloydShow band will be joining us
for a few numbers, we're going to be showcasing some new material
(including one semi-theatrical piece that is unlike anything we have
ever attempted before) and bringing out a few songs that haven't been
played since last year. FREE TICKETS are still
available for those of you who don't feel like paying for this
show - which is most likely all of you, so order yours today!
Secondly, we've recently been offered the opportunity to play at
the grand re-opening of Alternative Grounds, a lo
indie cinema owned and operated by our friend John Woodhouse. There
will be improv comedy, there will be rock'n'roll (same difference, really) and there will be the Utah
premiere of Scranton, so come on down and
check it out.
Finally, for those of you pining away for another FloydShow (and believe me, I know
you're out there...the e-mails just keep on coming), do
not despair. We are still holding out hope for some festival dates
during August, but should that fall through we will definitely be
putting all the bells & whistles together again in early September for
a re-match at Getty's (nope, they're not sick of us yet). And next
Thursday's gig will feature some old-old-old school Floyd tunes which
we weren't able to fit into the May 10 performance.
That's all for now. I'll be back sooner than later.
