piano

open mike

As threatened a couple of days ago, I went to the open mike at the Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River tonight. Chris and I both went but played separately.

There weren't very many people there, but I liked pretty much all of the musicians, and the fact that there weren't that many of them ensured that I actually got to play (unlike last time I went to an open mike).

I had planned to play guitar pieces, but the soundman offered to set up a keyboard for me, so I ended up doing three piano pieces: Leadbelly's "Bourgeois Blues', my own 'Hybrid Car' (which I did in the wrong key unfortunately), and Ray Charles's 'I Believe To My Soul'.

I also got some knitting done, so I think that at the knitting party I'm throwing on Friday I actually have a shot at finishing, or mostly finishing, the slippers I'm making.

Anyway, the open mike was pretty good, so if there are any musicians in the Providence/Boston area are looking for one I would say that it's worth checking out. There's a $3 cover. [more info] [calendar] Next week I'll be busy going to a knitdrinkprov thing but hopefully I'll make it out to Fall River again sometime soon.
