Fibber Magees (09.09.09)

Why was today's show at Fibber Magees one of my best ever in 2-1/2 years of doing shows in SL? I can tell you right away, it wasn't because of anything special about my own performance. I know I played well, but I generally do, all modesty aside. No, today's show was great because we had a large and boisterous crowd of really fun people and good friends. It really comes down to that. The audiences never realize how important they are to inspiring a musician who's playing live in front of them.

Anyway, we had some 30 people at the club, and a number more who were listening in on the stream, so I enjoyed the opportunity to showcase my original songs. Today being not only 9/9/09 but also the day that the Beatles have released their remastered albums, I made sure to include a few Beatles covers in the set list. The show was so fun today, in fact, that I've decided to give you the entire hour-long performance to listen to here if you want.
