On Friday evening I kicked off the Memorial Day weekend with an acoustic set at the Driftwood. I was joined by, the one and only, Dave Brown.
It’s always a time at the Driftwood. Driftwood is something of a cross between playing a dive bar and playing your friend’s living room. Dave and I caught the tail end of an early birthday show crowd which worked out great for us. We jumped on the bill last second. I should say, on Wednesday I confirmed to play a solo show at the Driftwood. I had asked Liz and she was going out of town. I knew Corey was in Nashville and Beau had to work and Shane was on the fence, but had a friend from Alaska coming into town. By the end of the evening on Thursday, Dave said he’d be available to perform. And I’d say that’s pretty good for a last second Memorial Day weekend show.
We showed up on Friday evening with two days to promote and heard the displeasure of the owner as soon as we walked in. To say the least, we were grateful for the birthday party crowd that stuck around.
We stomped our feet and howled ten songs into the night. It was a great way to start off the long weekend.
For me, the rest of the weekend was filled with bike rides and grilling between sprinkles. All time well spent with family.
Hope your weekend was relaxing! Happy Memorial Day!
Our next full band show is Friday, June 16th at Reverie Café. We’d love to see you there!
