Out Of Control

So check this. I am pretty much a homebody. I don’t typically prefer to go out. But…

Wednesday: Date with Em at Brewer’s Art – Show with David Byrne – Drinks with Mark after

Thursday: Baltimore City Paper’s Best of Baltimore Party with Al (holy Smaltimore. Could I have seen more people I knew there?!)

Friday: Panelist at the BMC (bmcon.org) on Recording Techniques – See our neighbor read her poetry at Entangled: Art & Love and view art – Dinner after with Al.

Saturday: Panelist at the BMC on Recording with a Shoestring Budget – Hip Hop Showcase with Al is on the table.

What’s amazing about this is that I, for the past 4 days did things outside of the studio or my house. It’s uncanny. I can’t remember the last time in 2 years doing this much! It’s tiring, but exciting. Not to mention I’ve put my business card in so many people’s pockets. And better yet, I’ve actually heard from a bunch of them.

David Byrne @ The Lyric

I don’t have too much to say about this, other than: GO SEE DAVID BYRNE.

In college my friends all went to see David Byrne. I didn’t have the cash to shell out for it. Everyone came back a changed man. I finally got to see David Byrne a few years back at 930 Club. Sadly it didn’t speak to me.

I got an email from my friend (who plays keyboards) who was getting ready for 3 weeks of rehearsals with David and then a 4 month tour. Turns out they were going to start the tour off in Baltimore, his hometown, and he invited us to the show.

Anyways. Long story short. The show was phenomenal. The drummer ruled. The bassist was solid. The backup singers hit it. There were interpretive dancers that totally saw Stop Making Sense and stole moves from David here and there. Lots of Eno produced Talking Heads. Great new songs from the new Eno/Byrne record, which by the way is awesome. Think James when Eno produced them in the early to mid 90s. And one track from the first Eno/Byrne record which kept Mark busy!

I can’t really think of much else to say. I am pretty fried. But check out the tour schedule and see them in a town near you.

PS. He’s not as tall as those suits made him appear.

 

 

PPS. Thanks Al & JG! You are the bestest Lilysitters!

PPPS. And here are some photos someone else took.
