Dr. Michelle Party

My bandmate in Gutter & Spine, Michelle Leona celebrated the completion of her dissertation last night at Lolita Bar. There were a lot of excellent performances from the rest of the bandmates and several other pals. I played two songs: video evidence below.

The video was taken by Marie using my blackberry. Not bad for a cell phone video.

Congratulations, Michelle!


Uzi’s Open

I attended Amy Uzi’s open mic last night at Tribes Gallery in the East Village (every Thursday at 8–cover charge is by donation). It was an interesting mix of the usual art star open mic crowd and some poets, some of whom were actually pretty good. I read a new short story. I took this video on my blackberry.

Then I had time leftover, so I sat at the piano and fumbled my way through one of my songs. If you listen carefully, you can hear Brer Brian playing guitar and singing from the audience.
