Virgin Megastore Union Square - One Third Gone.


Nordstrom-Rack has utilized half of the space that was the lower level of the Virgin Megastore USQ, The ghost of a few CDs linger at checkout but the Vibe is Non-Existent compared to what once was.

Sweethook - CD Release Party 5/13/10 Fontana's Bar,New York City


A plethora of well wishers came down to show us their well wishing at Fontana's bar on the edge of Chinatown in Downtown Manhattan. The band played very well and we even ran ahead of schedule for the first time allowing us a Rocking version of "Hit The Ground Running" to end our set, I also made the right hand drumming adjustment to the "Singer-friendly/Drummer-Friendly" version of said song on this evening. Abuelito the MAN himself attended the show but I was not made aware of this until he was exiting.

I appreciated all of the drinks offered me and enjoyed some Manic dancing with a WHO fan or two upstairs, A little later in the evening and they were blaring the KINKS upstairs at the bar as well. Chinatown Won Ton soup was purchased to top the evening off but it was Too Soggy.

The Rockingham's - Greenhouse Cafe 4/30/10 Brooklyn,New York


This was one of those rare instances that just "happened" but I was enjoying a Cheeseburger Deluxe with Jamie and her family right next door in the Dining/Catering portion of the Greenhouse Cafe when I needed to use the facilities and spotted a few "neighborhood band" posters, Upon further inspection I noticed my friends band The Rockingham's were performing next door in the bar just twenty minutes previous to the current hour and on that very evening so we went in to check them out.

A nice selection of Sixties classics were performed and I was asked to come up and end the first set to perform a cover of the Eddie Cochran tune Summertime Blues/The WHO version. So it was a Drummer from a different cover band sitting in with The Rockinghams who also cover The Who that cover Blue Cheer who cover Eddie Cochran's Summertime Blues.

I had a Blast and it was all a Blur that was over before it began but it was Great to finally get to jam with my former co-worker Bruce.
