Another case of the Mondays

Yes, it's that time again. Anyone out there feeling it, too?

The weekend was fun. Saturday's show at Prospero's Books was a blast. We were silly and loose and sloppy, but it was a great time. We were having so much fun, in fact, that we did something I just about never do. We played songs that we haven't even gotten "down" yet!

We whipped out our cover of Billy Joel's Uptown Girl, and it went over really well. I forgot one of the verses and had to "doo doo doo" my way through it, and it didn't sound right without Chad (our new guitarist), but it was still great. Then to add to the nonsense we tried to play "I just need my car" at the end of the night. Pat wasn't even at our last practice when we worked it through, and again, it didn't sound right without Chad, but I wanted to see what it would feel like to play it live. It held up well. It's not a set-closer, though we did close this set with it, but it's a great song and I can't wait to fill it out completely.

On Sunday I introduced two very non-Monty Python friends from work to the Holy Grail. That was cool.

I'm eager to hit the studio again. I want to get Uptown Girl to tape as soon as possible. But I'm honoring the pact I made before we recorded Kinda Like Fireworks and thus I will not be borrowing any money to record, this time. So buy some stuff from us! It'll help us get our new tunes to tape. Only $5K to go. :)
