Last week was the Week of Too Many Shows, which came about quickly and was totally exhausting, but also a lot of fun. Months ago, I booked myself into a show called Muffins in the Window for 9/16. Then, I was informed in August that I was invited to perform at Bartini Ultralounge on 9/14. Then a friend called me on 9/10 and asked me to play a set at The Trash Bar on 9/15. So I played for an hour on Tuesday, an hour on Wednesday, and, mercifully, 15 minutes on Thursday, when my voice was almost gone, anyway. Didn’t realize that was going to happen, so I’m glad it was only a short set on the last night!
Tuesday’s show at Bartini was lots of fun because it was hosted by the fabulous Emily McNamara, and although the crowd was relatively small, it was quite strong, attentive and loud at the end of each of my songs. A professional photographer/paparazzo (seriously! self-proclaimed!) was there to take photos, and I hear there’s a video somewhere as well, so we’ll see if that surfaces. I also asked my friend, JJ Japanime, to join me on stage to close the show with our song we wrote together, “Icedick,” which we know is going to be an enormous hit, and which people all over Brooklyn have stuck in their heads already. We REALLY need to hurry up and release it already because all our friends are dying to own a copy. 🙂
