Open Mic Recap @ The Living Room

Monday night was a dead night at the Living Rooom although I heard some good performances by Roz King & co., a guy named Vinnie, and an instrumentalist I believe to be named John Marquis. I could be dead wrong about that like I was last week when I incorrectly referred to Dave and Miria’s song “Let Me Be” as “Let it Be.” Let’s hope they aren’t still mad at me. Thanks to Vinnie I remembered to remind myself I was thinking about possibly buying the new Flaming Lips CD. We’ll see. He played the Lips song, “Realize,” which sounded great live last summer at the Unlimited Sunshine concert.

I played “Headstart”, “The Genius of it All”, “16-18” and Beck’s “Cut in Half Blues.” I felt like Uncle Nutzy from UHF trying to get the kids to like the show. Nah, it wasn’t that bad, but I don’t think too many people were into it.

Roz mentioned to me that he gets some sort of strange pleasure watching other people play his guitar. I’m not surprised.
