Waking up bright and early at 10:30 a.m.


Breakfast Bar. Tea.


At Music Makers coaching the adult band – today kicks off the fall band session.


Peanut Butter and Crackers. Apple. Coffee.


Then, immediately after we kick off the Broadway rehearsal also! While the parent meeting is going on they’re doing auditions in the other space. At some point we all gather and do a full reading of the show as a cast.


After all that I have to hightail it to Back Bay for a show tonight. Captive Birds. Obscure Son. Babe Club. And Josiah and I are doing a rare duo performance with me on the drums. Long story but Josh, our drummer, is stuck in jail for the time being. And I’ve managed to learn the set on drums since Thursday. Even though I’ve performed on drums at Music Makers this is a little different – a style I know from behind the bass and guitar but completely new to me behind the kit. I put forth all the energy I can muster. As Elliott states post show “You are a literal drummer – everything you play is literal.”



It’s a good time hanging with all my friends and supporting music. Babe Club does a supreme job – lush and pop sensible with a charismatic female lead.


Afterwards, we all corral at The Shack – lounging around the fire pit with Shannon, Jordan Trotter, Josh Coplon, and the Babe Club cats. Sipping on Orange Crushes and enjoying the social stimuli.


I offered to let the band spend the night at my house – it’s just the three of them in the living room – glad I could help.
