Well, a little over 4 months later, I am hereby submitting my second “weekly” blog entry! As some of you know, I often get perfectionistically bogged down in how I’m going to do something (write a blog post, compose a piece, make a sandwich) just right, and, as more time passes and the pressure to do it even righter grows and grows, I often just give up and don’t start.
Well, not this time! I am going to write this damn blog entry, by golly, even if it’s just a semi-stream-of-consciousness bullet-point list. A lot really has been going on in my world here in Philly, and I do want to share it with all of you.
Free show Friday night
First and foremost: I’m playing a show this Friday, 3/23! (Yes, that’s tomorrow -- no, I’m not going to let my perfectionistic shame stop me from writing this for that reason.) I’ll be performing some of my original songs at the intimate Candelit Series in West Philly. This will be my first such show since moving to Philadelphia last August (and, incidentally, my first show in Philly since my Northeast tour back in 2012). As the name implies, this is an intimate series of concerts with...candles! It seemed like the perfect venue for my music, and a perfect way to light a fire under me to brush up some of my songs and get back into performing in this vein.
The show is free/donation, but because space is limited, you need to reserve a ticket through the Eventbrite. Doors open at 7:30 PM, music starts around 8:00 PM. I’m up first, followed by Philly band Black Horse Motel -- I don’t know them personally, but I’m looking forward to hearing ‘em! Check out the Eventbrite page for all the details. There's also a Facebook event if you want to RSVP and share that way.
OK, I’m already rapidly running out of words here in my 700-word-count goal, so here goes a rapid-fire list of recent highlights:
OK, I’m already well over that 700-word limit, even after lots of cutting, but, oh well. Believe it or not, there is more exciting news to share, but I will have to save that for my next blog entry. Till then, happy spring from snowy Philadelphia!
