September passed by so quickly! October might be my favorite month. Actually, November might be better. Wait. December is best, then October, and November is third. Alaska can come too.
Friday night The Honey Badgers braved the Nascar race traffic and went down to perform at 33 West Ale House and Grill in Dover. We arrived a little bit later than expected, but once we were set up things went really well. They have a large selection of delicious craft beers and lots of friends and family came to watch.
I woke up early on Saturday to drive three hours north into Pennsylvania to golf. I picked up my friend/intern Evan on the way. Our foursome played a decent round and the weather was gorgeous. It was relaxing. Evan and I headed back to Delaware around 5:30. Six hours of driving is exhausting and not fun, but we did have Mumford & Sons’ Babel playing on repeat so that lightened the drive a bit.
That night Erin and I loaded my car, picked up Em McKeever, and headed to Kelly’s Logan House in Trolley Square, Wilmington, DE. We weren’t 100% sure that we were performing or what time we were supposed to start or how long we were supposed to play (make sure you tell people those things if you ever book shows -.-). We figured things out and Em played an opening set from 10:30-11:15. She joined us on bass for our set (because she is awesome). We played from 11:30 until a little after 1am. Performing for people who are consuming so much alcohol is always interesting. Some guido-style fist pumping happened during Down (a folk song), and I saw other ridiculous dance moves throughout the night. Overall, things went great and I really enjoyed it. We met Sean, who hopefully might play some hand percussion with us in the future.

The harvest moon was shining bright and this was the fourth weekend in a row that we’ve been so busy doing music shtuff and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are performing this Friday night at the 21st Annual Delmarva Folk Festival [facebook event page]! Delfolk.org has more information. Our set is at 10pm but music starts at 7pm and it’s only $5. I’m excited.
Have a great week!
