- Countdown Entry #44
- 7:17 PM, Thurday, July 6th,
- Booked a gig
booked a gig booked a gig. Happy happy joy-joy. Friday
July 30th at the Powell "Brian Boru's" bar. That's
like a testing ground for the other place. I don't
care what it is. It's a paid gig and I can prove
myself. Chris was very cool. He runs 5 places and
knows the entertainment business. THANK GOD. Thought
it might be cool for me to play the patio on gallery
hop nights. That's perfect. Lots of exposure, and
people will flock to it. Also, it's on the same patio
that CD101 is on! HA. How awesome would that be. To be

duties with CD101. Very cool. I'm very

to play 9-1. That's 4 hours. That's at LEAST 12 sets.
I'll have 9 by the 18th

be happening in the coming days.
- Still just floored
at how positive even the denials are. Everyone
loves it, it's just not for every club. And
I realize that, although Columbus is a big
city...it's filled with LOTSA rednecks. The guy at
"Vinny's Pub" said: "That's too high brow
for us." Heh. You can't be mad at that.
- So it looks like
we'll have 3 shows in July, Andyman's, Shorty's and
Brian Boru's. Man I need to have a lot of sets ready
by the end of this month...

time I'm liable to play nothin' but love
