Notes Shack Pub (04.30.09)
I really never know what to expect when I play at Krakov Letov's little bar in SL, the Notes Shack Pub. All I can tell you is that I seem to have a fun time every time I play there, and it doesn't seem to matter whether the place is empty or packed. Of course, I tend to prefer the latter, and we scrounged up a nice sized crowd of about 25 today for my 2:00PM show.
By the way: at 11:30AM, I went into the Notes Shack and started getting myself ready to play. That is, until Krakov reminded me that I wasn't scheduled to take the stage until 2:00. Oops. I thought it was noon for some reason. Ah well, no harm done.
So, as you ZakBlog readers know, I've been focusing a lot on my original tunes lately, and I think it's been great playing my own stuff nearly exclusively. But every once in awhile, everyone needs some variety in their lives. I decided that the Notes Shack would be a fun place to go "Old School Zak" and pull out a bunch of covers to mix into the set. I think we all had a great time as a result. I definitely had some good energy coming back at me from the crowd.
Here's the "Old School Zak" set list...

Thanks Anyway (Zak Claxton)
Little Wing (Jimi Hendrix)
