Support Local Music EVERYWHERE!

I love going to big concerts and will always do so, but it seems like the more popular or famous an artist, the more it costs! They’re really raking in the money these days with VIP packages and premium seating not to mention artists like Maynard James Keenan and Geoff Tate who do wine tastings – Maynard actually makes his own wine which I do admire and enjoy – excellent juice he makes! But my point is that maybe from time to time you could skip the bigger shows and see some local acts – maybe even if you don’t skip the shows, go see a local lesser known artist which a lot of the times tend to be free. I know not every part of the country is the same but here in the bay area it’s amazing how much music you can see for next to nothing and you can support the local scene and businesses that host these events as well. It’s economics and it helps both artists and business and local economies.

I managed to move to a much smaller and cheaper apartment directly across from my work – which is surprisingly pleasant and makes giving my cats medication much easier 🙂 I do have to say that being so close to the office has been better than I imagined and I do love the commute! Now that I’m moved, I still have a few small lingering items to deal with like a car to sell, and my washer and dryer I no longer have a place to hook-up, and then finalizing my unpacking and organization but it’s coming along nicely and by the end of the month I should be able to relax and record – which leads to the reason for this post.

UK Vacation and Open Mics!

I just back from my first trip to the UK and had an amazing time! So much history and so much to see – I love visiting new places for the first time and how it just opens up your senses and your brain. To me it feels like an indoor cat looks when you they go outside for the first time – peaked and intrigued!
