And I’ve completely lost my voice. From a cold. Right before a show. As usual. God. Dammit. So I’m on vocal rest and drinking brown smoothies made of banana, orange juice, spinach and beets (trying to maximize the natural vitamin intake), as much straight orange juice as possible, sleeping as much as possible, and apparently, blogging as much as possible. Ha. But anyway, thank god the gig is 48 hrs away and not 24, because I think 48 is doable for getting my voice back.
Anyway, in case you’re not one of the 1,333 people I’ve already reminded 100 times about the show, here’re the deets:
JC Cassis live! (with Emily Stern and The Spanish Channel opening)
JC takes the stage at 8:40pm
70 North 6th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY
L train to the Bedford stop
Hope to see you there! The band has been kicking ass musically and we’re also really having fun together which is amazing. They’re such sweet, talented, dependable people and I feel so lucky to be working with them. Last night at rehearsal was hilarious. We had two members who were deathly ill with colds, one of whom later got a horrendous nosebleed, the practice room was too cold, then too hot, and always too loud, and yet we still couldn’t hear each other, someone fell off a heater and bruised his butt, one guitarist had carpel tunnel syndrome, I was so sick I had to do some songs lying down, and we ran through Oasis’ “Wonderwall” and Weezer’s “Undone (The Sweater Song)”–my favorite song in 5th grade!– totally spontaneously and told funny stories about Rivers Cuomo going to Harvard with two of us (me and our bassist, John Ames.)
It is sooooooooooooo good to be in a band again I can’t even tell you.
Also, you will need to prepare yourselves for the hilarity that happens when we all dance while we’re playing songs. Watch Lee-Sean, our keyboardist, especially. Dude is funny. I can’t think about it when I’m singing because I start laughing uncontrollably. I will have to steal some blinders from a carriage horse and do the show with those on. Ooh, that’s a good idea for a gimmick.
Ok, whatever. Go to the show, ok?
