Islands of New England (06.05.13)

I performed Wednesday night at the Islands of New England in Second Life. I usually post a blog about each show on the following day if I can, but I have two rather reasonable excuses for my tardiness: first, I had a ridiculously long work day on Thursday, and second, it was my birthday. But wait! It was also my darling Kat's birthday. Yes, we share a birthday. Yes, it's awesome.

So, due to the aforementioned workday from hell (and the fact that our birthdays fell on a mundane Thursday this year), we didn't do much celebrating. We're going to instead go out for a nice dinner tomorrow night. Meanwhile, since I have roughly three seconds to spare, we'll make this a quick post about my show at the IONE.

As I've mentioned many times, the venue is run by my great friend Christine Haiku, and every time I perform there, the crowd mostly consists of the many crazy and wonderful people I call friends in the virtual world. I got onstage after my buddy Taunter Goodnight, whose shows always put me in a good mood. However, it wasn't a list of happy songs I'd prepared for the night. Instead, my musical theme was "weird", so my tunes leaned toward the odd side of my repertoire, and included a song I'd nevr played before as well as some that are pretty rare for me.
