The Blind KingĀ® - obscurer than thou

"Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world." - Annie Lenox


Thursday Night

The show at Zuzu went well. Still our favorite place to play. The Kent 100s had to cancel due to illness, but Mark Kraus of Jr. Courdoroy agreed to fill in. We played our quieter stuff for the first set. Then Mark played some of his great songs.

I was into my 4th free beer by the second set, and pretty relaxed. We kinda rocked out, and jumped around a bit, which was fun. Maybe I'm getting a little tired of all the moody quiet material. It felt good to play loud and move around. Easier to get into it and the band locks in much tighter. Maybe we'll start moving more in that direction for our live shows.

The crowd by that point consisted mostly of our friends, who were busy catching up with each other, and not paying strict attention. This made it more fun to just let go and have fun. We were the background music, setting the vibe. Personally I thought it was one of our best shows, even though it was a small crowd.
