i am almost finished mixing the new EP. expect to see it uploaded to my homepage soon.
eight days until i step on the stage again. eight days! can you believe that?! it's so close, i feel a tiny bit anxious and nervous. but also very excited. i have been rehearsing rigourously, daily, to hone my performance.
and i bought a new amp yesterday! it's only a little 16w kustom, but it has a tube pre-amp, and some pretty cool built-in reverb and delay effects (i especially like the rotary setting, and the ability to adjust the effects level independently of the volume and gain. i get some pretty cool sounds when i plug in my acoustic. this will help me hone an awesome live tone just in time for the show. :)
what else is new? i went out to zaphod's last thursday to see jesse dangerously, kool krys, and owel five. that was an awesome show. ended up talking with owel five, and i'm going to do a remix or two for him, which should be loads of fun.
ALSO, on friday night, i went to see The Herbaliser at babylon with littlegirltoast. Grand Analog opened. what an amazing show. some seriously amazing musicianship, and a great flare for performance. i even managed to get some good pics (slowly getting used to the new camera in low light; using it in manual mode now, and relying mostly on local lighting, not using the flash).
my tattoo is mostly all healed. it just itches a little. i'm all psyched to go back on the 29th and get it coloured...
