ears and cellos

I wrote this a few days before my post on changing strings and before I had uploaded videos of this show at World Cafe Live at the Queen, but I didn’t want to post this until I had uploaded that other content. It is from somewhere around June 13th, 2011 ^_^

You know the bands were too loud last night when your ears are too tired to hear that you’re out of tune during the next day’s lunchtime set ):

Played an awesome Palk Basement Show two Thursdays ago. We (Battleshy Youths) played and also ran sound collaboratively. So. Much. Loudness. Kids drum so hard and we had to push the PA system to match vocals and half stack guitar amplifiers.

It was my first week of work in my new department which meant I was exhausted from adjusting to full time work again. Luckily my supervisor let me go for an extended lunch Friday to play at the World Cafe Live at the Queen Theater in Wilmington with Kelsey on cello. It was so much fun. Videos!

…And I think that is all that I had written >.< It’s nice to have a community of musicians that I can depend on and play shows with and to write music with. So much has changed in the past year.

new songs!

So… I got the amazing opportunity to play at the World Cafe Live at the Queen Theater‘s Friday lunchtime series two weeks ago. My awesome friend Kelsey joined me on cello (she played on the album as well). We played an hour long set of new originals, album originals, old originals, and some covers. Lots of songs that I had never performed live before; most songs that she had never heard before >.< Kels is amazing though and played so well and here are videos yay:
