I’m the featured artist this week at Studio Luloo’s open mic night. If you’ve never been to their weekly event, use this as a good excuse to check it out. It’s at 916 white horse pike in Oaklyn, NJ across from Froggies liquor. It’s BYOB and has tons of great musicians, poets, and performers.
I’ll be the featured artist on March 10th at Studio Luloo’s open mic. Studio Luloo is on the white horse pike in Oaklyn, NJ. Be there!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support the Studio Luloo show last week.? I had more fun than I have had at a show in forever.? Let’s hope we’re able to do it again soon.

Last night I stopped by Studio LuLoo’s open mic again and had a nice time. Mark Rice was the featured artist and he had a nice mellow sound. So mellow a guy near me passed out on the couch. Hah. A guy named Pat rocked a version of Mayonnaise by Smashing Pumpkins and I think my favorite new artists I’ve heard there is Jerry, who strongly resembles the coroner on CSI. Sara O’Brien let me play three songs near the end of the night, so I pulled out 99%, I Hope I Die on the Moon, and the Cut in Half Blues.
I went outside before my set to tune up and froze my ass off. I was so cold I swear I could feel my heart beating. The guitar didn’t stay in tune anyway, so it was a waste. The set went ok, and of course I had to make a joke about the guy sleeping on the couch. I hope he woke up the next day to a bunch of kids doing a music class.
John Shaughnessy suggested I check out the open mic at Studio Luloo so last Tuesday I did. Singer/songwriter/fire escaper Sara O’Brien owns the studio and she’s making a great effort in turning it into a successful business. She holds music events at night and other times has art classes and workshops for kids. I can imagine how difficult it must be to keep a place like that open, but I have to say my first experience there was a blast. My daughter has taken a high priority in my life and my knowledge of the local music scene isn’t what it was, but I didn’t expect to see so many talented performers I’d never heard before. I knew some of the artists, but only two or three. A woman recited The Raven from memory, hip hop artists spun records and rhymed, and a slew of songwriters played to a crowd of about 25.
