Post Gig Ponder – Londohome – Bucharest, RO

Londohome – June 22, 2019.   Tequila shots.  Sweaty dancing.  Chevy El Dorados.  Smiles.  Sunrises.  What more do you need? I can’t party like I used to, but I still try! When Mitchell brought me those two shots of Tequila, I knew the night was going stretch well into the wee morning hours, and by […]

Post Gig Ponder – St. Louis, MO @ Cafe Piazza

#Postgigponders – Absintheria Sixtina

What a night this was! Absinth, beers, friends, and an unexpected beat-boxing machine of a human named Alin.  This gig went way more incredible than I could have ever imagined.

Boogie Bar – Bucharest

It is 11:49 am on Sunday September 16th.  I have not been this hung-over in an extremely long time.  My head is pounding!  I know I am not alone in this battle though; I have some fellow comrades feeling the same way.   The boys I speak of are my two beer drinking Dutch mates who […]
