Waking up around noon.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. Breakfast Tea.


Time to load up the vehicles with all the music gear.


Driving out to Smartmouth in Norfolk for a Musicplayer gig. They’re celebrating their 8th anniversary with a Magic 8 IPA. Nate Sacks performs just outside while we set up.


I’m out of practice doing all this setting up. Not since last February have we played a real gig. Trying to remember our system of which cords go where and everything.


We do 3 sets of all our familiar tunes with a few fresh ones. Tristan Stewart’s here in support as usual. And more of our friends show up later. This little girl about 5 years old, Beatrice, isn’t afraid to dance and get on the stage with a shaker. We corral this drunk frat guy to play drums on Rebel Rebel but he has a hard time keeping the rhythm. Later on, we get Stacey to jam out on Satisfaction, which goes much smoother. Anthony and Miah’s birthdays are this weekend also. He comes up and we play that Sugar Ray song.


Afterwards, everybody helps load out the gear to the cars.


Meeting up at Anthony and Miah’s apartment down the street for a party. It’s nice to see all the old 1623/1435 crew.
