As I mentioned in my last post, I’m trying to shake up the set list a bit. Last night in SF it got shook up a bit too much – I blanked on The Presidents lyrics and had to bail out TWICE. you know that I make mistakes constantly at live shows, and I’ve gotten pretty good at ignoring them. For whatever reason this one really rattled me. I was off my game for quite a few songs, sort of hanging suspended over the deep black hole of total think shutdown. Of course the audience was very supportive despite my rough edges, and as usual, seemed to take particular delight in getting to see such a spectacular meltdown in person – that’s what live music is about after all. I forced myself to come back to it later in the set and got through it, which felt great. Take that you stupid song.
SF again tonight, some tickets still available last I checked. I promise I’ll make some big mistakes tonight too.
