This is How It Goes

Scott played his last show for a few weeks last night at Inman Perk, a coffeehouse in the Inman Park neighborhood. His show was great; he played two songs he hadn't played live in 10 years and sounded great. His harmonica playing was fantastic. The only issue was the actual space. It's not entirely conducive to good listening, the floor space was weird. I don't know. I guess I need to figure out what I'm doing in terms of booking for the next round of shows and check places out a little more thoroughly. The next show is a house concert and I'm looking forward to that one. But, as far as last night goes I'll just chalk it up to a learning experience.

It just had the feeling of a weird night for me. Or rather, it was a weird night.

The group of friends who came out to see Scott play was interesting. Scott's cousin and her husband; an old co-worker of Scott's and his wife; a former bandmate and wife; plus two of Scott's current friends from work. Oh, and Scott's friend Mark. It was pretty cool to have such an interesting mix of people brought together. As always, it was great to see folks we haven't seen in a while. But it was also a little stressful bringing such a diverse crowd together. You never know if people will click or if it will be silent and awkward. Fortunately, no fist fights erupted and everyone seemed to enjoy his or herself.

Today was rough. I was tired and weepy for no obvious reason. I guess it's hormones. I don't know what else it could be.

Oh, but tomorrow is another day. Let's just see how it goes.
