For some reason not a lot of musicians turned up for the open mike, so everyone got to play longer than usual, 3-4 songs instead of the usual 2. I liked everyone who played and bought a CD by one of the featured artists, Emilia Dahlin. (I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.)
A couple of unexpected folks were there (not to see us): Steve, who comes to a lot of the Nick-a-Nees shows, and saucypunk's Jesse, who's a friend of one of the featured artists (whose name I unfortunately don't remember -- I believe her last name was Hecht).
Chris and I played after Dahlin and Hecht. Our plan was to concentrate on songs that featured some harmonizing, so we did 'Tear My Stillhouse Down' and 'The Dire Wolf'. Then Becky Chace, who organizes the open mike, told us to do a couple more, so we also did 'Stealing' and 'Lady Luck'. People seemed to like us and applauded after Chris's guitar solos, and Becky was very complimentary, which was very nice!
Hopefully some of the folks who were there last night will also come to Nick-a-Nees tonight. We'll see!
Oh, and I finally got to hear the famous a capella rendition of 'Rocketman'.
