What a show tonight!

I just played a show with my cover band, Hit Me With It at a great bar/restaurant called the Dugout pub.  I wasn't really expecting the show to be anything special for various reasons, but the show ended up being extraordinary.  I thought the band sounded very good, but it was the audience who made the show great.  We had great guests come up and jam, plus a lot of dancers in the audience.  We also had a super cool group of people from Tokyo tear it up on some Stray Cats.  It was freakin' awesome.  I had so much fun tonight, I almost forgot that it was a gig!

Thanks to everyone who showed up!

Now on another note, these are my current favorite things:

Dragon Age Origins
Arizona Arnold Palmer Lite
Pandora Radio
Paul Gilbert Intense Rock
Ninja Assassin
John Woo's Red Cliff
The Big Bang Theory

Hit Me With It and Klingons.

We had Hit Me With It rehearsal today. As usual it was a marathon rehearsal where we went over 30+ songs. We're playing at the dugout pub on saturday night in Staten Island. If you haven't seen us recently, we're playing with Rob Kipp on keys and Phil Magallanes on bass. Phil is moving to Florida soon so this will be his last show with us. If you've never heard Phil play, make sure you get to hear this amazing musician live in person while you still can!

In other news, I must clear up something that my friend Damian brought up today while watching the new Star Trek movie. He made a comment about how all alien races in Star Trek look like humans with only minor variations. I feel the need to explain this for all the non- trekkies who are curious...

In Star Trek lore, all of the humanoid races are decendants of one race. This ancient race of people developed space travel long before the dawn of 'istory and populated various planets. Through evolution, each group adapted to its planet's conditions over the millenia. This is why all humanoid species look slightly different.

I hope that this clears up this very important matter for you.

Testing out the new blog

I'm trying to see how this works from the phone.


New Blog, New Calendar

In my onging effort to get better at the internet, I've been making a few changes on my site.  I hope these changes are for the better.

First, I switched to a google calendar.  This allows me to change all my dates from one place.  I can change gig information on my phone and it automatically changes on my website and on facebook.  This is a huge time saver and is far less tedious than the previous method I was using.

I'm also trying to find away to make blogging a little easier.  This is my first attempt, and hopefully it shows up in all the right places.
