X Factor (05.31.09)

When I got into Facebook awhile back, one of the more interesting and fun people I met there was Diana Renoir. She checked out a show of mine at some point (probably after shameless self-promotion on my behalf) and has come to a bunch of shows since then. When she threw out the idea of having me play at the grand reopening of X Factor, the store she owns with her hubby Xerxes Ninetails, I was happy to accept. Plus, I just happened to be looking for a show to play this weekend, so it couldn't have worked out better.

Started off with a light crowd, but then as tends to happen in SL shows, people drifted in over the course of the hour. By the end, we had 20+ there and folks seemed to be enjoying themselves. I had fun, so I can't complain either. Oh, and to liven things up, I threw in a new cover... of Depeche Mode on acoustic guitar. Hey, you only live once.
