I've especially enjoyed my last three gigs. The Gov, SCALA, and the Burnside Library have made me feel that 2011 could be a good year for making music. All the shows have been different, each posing their own challenges, and all ultimately proving worthwhile.
Tonight I am at The Metro. Six songs; three of mine, and three old blues songs. It goes OK, but something is missing. Technically all the bits are in the right place, but I fail to inspire or impress myself. Understandably, no-one else seems particularly interested either. I sound like mud. Maybe it's just a flat spot. These things happen.
