Hesperia of Templemore (09.14.14)
With the recent unveiling of my band They Stole My Crayon's song and lyric video for "Things Under Trees", perhaps I've been in a mood for dreamy, ethereal music lately. Or, equally possible, the coming of Fall has me in a mood for more introspective songs (even though we're in our typical late summer heat wave here in Southern California). In any case, when I put my set list together for today's show at Hesperia of Templemore in Second Life, I found that I was leaning toward the more serious, writerly kind of tunes, so today's show ended up having a "dream theme" which went very well.

I also found myself needing to add some new stuff to my repertoire, so I did, with four songs that I'd previously not played before. Adding to the fun, my set at Templemore was wedged in between two SL musicians whose vibe and performance goes very well with my own: FrankLee Anatra and Lyndon Heart. The show then falling on a Sunday afternoon made it perfect for the songs I ended up choosing.
