Open Mic Recap: The Living Room

The Living Room’s open mic was a lot of fun tonight. Jason Wheatly, Roz King, Keith Lewis, and Willie Tapps all put on great performances. Adrien and John blew everyone away with two originals and I’m sure they’ll be playing around a lot. I also enjoyed the guy who went right before me, John Romeo, ...

Guitar Images

I added pictures of my guitars to the image page. They came out pretty nice and I should have a few more when Jake finds the time to send them to me. I also changed the color scheme of the site from green to blue and removed the 3D shadowing from the boxes. I got ...

Open Mic Recap: Ended Up in the ER

Thankfully the smoke has started to clear from all the Canadian fires. This week has been like living in the Denny’s smoking section. I couldn’t even see the city yesterday while driving over the Walt Whitman Bridge. I figured I’d be waiting by myself for a long time for Grape Street to open so I ...

Open Mic: Grape Street Tonight

I’ll be heading out to Manayunk tonight for the Grape Street Open Mic. I haven’t been there in a while, but it should be a good time. The sign up starts when they open at 7:30PM and from recent experience I’ve found that if you aren’t there before 8:00PM you’ll be falling asleep by the ...

Flea Market Find

Yesterday I visited the world famous Berlin Flea Market with my siblings to find a few odd items for my brother’s new apartment. Along the way I picked up a crummy electric guitar for $45 from a guy named Milton. It’s missing a pickup, has holes all over it, and “Grunge Sucks” is scratched into ...

Added Chicken Head Flyer

I added the famous chicken head flyer from my June 21, 2002 Grape Street show to the images page Most people seemed to enjoy the humor of putting a fried chicken head over my face despite the corny jokes I made about it (“I’m not very photogenic,” etc.). I hope I’ll be able to track ...

Open Mic Recap

The night started out pretty dead, but picked up later on. Unfortunately, my set was during the dead period. Despite sweaty palms and near heat exahaustion, I ripped out decent versions of Why Now Satan?, All My Dreams are in Cartoon, and the Genius of it All. “Chasin” Jason was great as always and Roz ...

Open Mic: The Living Room

I’ll probably check out the new Monday night open mics over at the Living Room in Collingswood, NJ (corner of Haddon and Collings Ave). I’m not sure if it’s just me, but their coffee seems a lot better than it used to be. This site seems almost ready to go live now.
