I'm baaaack! Zak at NYA Stage (01.24.09)
Well, it sure felt great to start playing in SL again. As you loyal blog readers know, I had my annual forced hiatus from performing in SL (or anywhere else for that matter) while I took care of a large business event. So that took me out of commission for almost three whole weeks.
So, Saturday, I made a relatively quick decision to do an informal show at one of my own venues, the Neil Young Archive stage in SL. It's basically a small stage and dance floor attached to the entrance of my Neil Young Archives, and I wasn't expecting a huge crowd. We announced the event and at the last minute sent out some invites, and I was happy to get a small but cool crowd there on Saturday.
I kept the set list pretty simple, and since we were at the NYA Stage, I threw in more Neil tunes than I normally would have (and did a few tunes I haven't done in ages). But all in all, it was a good time, and now I feel more warmed up to get back to my shows at other venues.
