Being here, (albeit staying in a cheap hotel) has also given me a chance to get on my computer without losing a connection to the internet every couple of minutes (like I do in Boulder) and get some of the work done that I have been remiss to do. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing 'Bohemian Cowboy' in San Francisco in September for three shows, its all locked except for the details. Its interesting as I've been trying to put 'this gig' together that I got a message from both my cousin Scott and Aunt Linda about doing the show at 'The Beat Museum' there as well. Perhaps I could do both of them. I'm also looking at trying to get a couple of shows set up in Santa Cruz, as someone there has offered to help with the details there. Summer is sometimes a hard time to connect with folks who have and promote theatre, as many of them go awol it seems, so one has to be very patient.
In the meantime, I'm still working on the music, writing some more songs and 'keeping up my chops', as I instinctually know that this music vision will eventually payoff. I had a very satisfying experience last Friday, in a concert series at a place called 'The Burr Trail Outpost' which ironically used to be a motel that belonged to my Grandfather. I got to play with three of my favorite musicians, Eric, Rob, and Billy, and I believe we put on quite a show, playing for just over two hours. The audience that showed seemed appreciative and attentive, and as musicians, we had one of those 'experiences' where we all seemed to be of one mind and spirit. I've been playing enough this summer to feel fairly confident with what I'm playing, and felt very satisfied. Once again, the magical aura of Boulder, Utah.
Well, its almost six o'clock in the morning, and I still should get a couple of hours sleep before the journey back to paradise, so I'll close by telling you that as the machine prepares for the next level of 'Bohemian Cowboy', I'll begin to share the experience of the next part of the journey. I'm excited, a little frightened, and more than willing to continue this theatre lifestyle experiment, and as I've said before, "I'm still living like I have nothing to lose, still shuffling my feet forward towards the prize..."
