Music and Musings

Montreal Musicians meetup in 3 more sleeps.

A few days left before the long drive to Montreal to meet up with friends and strangers that I’ve come to know over the past couple of years through playing music in SL.

I’m excited, yet anxious at the same time.  Excited to meet with all these people, and hopefully be able to make some music with some of them.  Anxious cause.. well it’s very different than playing in the comfort of a 8 X 10 room in the basement.  It somehow seems ‘more real’.  I know how silly that sounds, but it’s just the best way i have of describing it.

Other thing that is making me a bit anxious is getting ready, loading up the car.  When i play here, all the songs are on the computer, and I load up the lyrics on-screen to use as cheat sheets.  Got to print those off and make a songbook i guess.  Also need to tear apart the setup to make sure I bring everything i need.  Guitar cables, laptop, picks, capos, tuners, extra strings, string winder, wire cutter, mics, mic cables, guitar stands, mic-stands, bottles of wine… d’oh..just remembered that I have a batch that needs to be bottled before friday morning.  Hmmm… .

Got the oil changed in the car, put in new sparkplugs and air-filter yesterday.  Will check tire pressure today.  So yeah… stuff like that makin’ me a bit anxious.  lol

So far I’m planning on doing a few songs with Shannon Ohurlihy, Mimi Carpenter, Max Kleene, and hopefully I’ll be able to get a few songs in with Montian Gilruth, Funky Freddy, Jase Branner, Mash Rode and all the others depending on how things work out.   I hope that at some point during the weekend i’ll be able to do a few songs with everyone there.

Here is a list of all the shows, locations in SL, and streams for the shows being played on June 25th.
