Bridge Over Troubled Water, part IV: Opening Night

on Thursday, March 13, 2008

It went very well tonight! It wasn't perfect, there are some chords in Only Living Boy in New York that I have to go to school on, but on the whole it was a GREAT concert!!

I have to say, I was amazed at the response that my song, Sky, got. Several people marked it as their favorite original song of the night and that just blows my mind, especially next to Nature's new one and Jeffy's Dark Days of Rain -- both of which totally fucking rock! I guess simplicity has its place. (It one of what I call my "Taoist" folk songs.)

I wish this could be my 40-hour-a-week job -- well, this mixed with the Shake a Hamster Band. The projects we do are by far the most rewarding experiences I've ever had, from Abbey Road to Pet Sounds to BOTW. Each one is a unique experience and a lesson in songwriting.

I am looking forward to the rest of the run very much, and I will be sad to see it end.

It was UNBELIEVABLE.... best 2.5 hrs of music I've enjoyed in a long time.

I'm really glad you guys started off with some originals, it was great how you all got to showcase your writing talents.

I'm so impressed that I don't even have the energy to be witty. :)
