New Year Rock in San Diego (01.04.08)
There's something about playing at San Diego in SL. Maybe it's the fact that in the open-air courtyard, I feel like I'm busking in the city on a busy day, free as a bird. Maybe it's my RL connection with San Diego, having partied- er, gone to school at SDSU back in the '80s. Whatever it is, I feel I've I've been doing some of my best performances there. Today, despite the absence of main San Diego music queen Cher Harrington, was a terrific show and we had a fun and lively crowd that was really cool.
We had a pretty fun mix of original Zak songs and covers today (see set list below). Also, I got to once again break out the brand new tune "Lines On Your Eyes" for the second day in a row. That went so well that I'm using the recording of it (also below) as my official demo for the tune, which has yet to be recorded in the studio. I also did the extremely-rarely-performed "She's Leaving Home" by the Beatles. That was a fun one too.
