Ivar was setting it up because our friend Jay was involved with the event and had directed him to the coordinator, but then he started driving the cab and I think he let it slide. Jay had suggested though that I might also play, so at the last minute tonight I drove down to Backspace and, finding a guy I had met a few months ago (right after I stopped drinking) who introduced me to Ogo, the coordinator. Ogo said it was possible that I might play later on in the night and then around midnight he let me know the 2:00 show had cancelled and I was able to set up and play.
Some other guys were kind of setting up and playing after I had played solo for a bit and we jammed until I realized that when I stopped the dynamicism died entirely, so I started packing up.
There was a photographer so hopefully I will soon have some photos of the live show, and I will be sure to post a link.
For now I'm tired and I'm going to go to cuddly sleepishness.
