i wanted to stop by in my busy schedule *cough* to let you know about tuesday night and what an incredible night it was for me.

tuesday night is, of course, open mic nights at The Arnada Cafe, where i played 3 songs the night i arrived. last tuesday, they didnt' have the key to get access to the mic and other equipment, so they didn't do it. i went this tuesday, didn't bring my guitar, and had the mind frame that i wouldn't be singing.

the guy that does it.. Jordan?!? i think his name is.. he saw me and yelped excitedly "omg!!! did you bring your guitar?!?" uh. no. "oh! well, you're using mine then!"

i played... 6? 7? songs?!? lessee:

"raining on the sky" - naked (the band, i wasn't in the buff..)
"rainy season" - vacant stairs *grin*
"glutton of sympathy" - jellyfish
"dog on wheels" - belle and sebastian
"she's losing it" - belle and sebastian

and i feel like i'm forgetting at least one... there were many MANY mistakes, but there was almost no one there, though brosely kept laughing his arse off... scaraharem was there, too...

anyhoo. so, i'm singing my songs, and about half the bar is in the back playing pool, most of the other half is around the bar itself, backs turned to me, and then my brother and cara plus another guy at a booth to the left...

and one lady that came FROM the back, to perch RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, and smile and grin and clap her hands to the music and sway to the rhythm.

when she had to leave between songs, she came up and gave me a tip (a TIP!), and said that i had thee most beautiful voice she had EVER heard, and to never stop singing.

that made my entire flipping month, lemme tell you.

so, i announced that she was my number one fan, because she was officially my first unbiased fan, meaning, not a friend or a friend of a friend, or an lj user ;)

maybe i'll frame the dollar.. :)

so... i guess i'm pretty much a permanent fixture at the arnada tuesday nights. it's pretty much the jordan and aubrey show, because no one else comes out, that i've seen. cara has played a couple of songs before.

her and i are going to start going to the park (once this blasted rain stops) in the afternoons and practice and stuff so that we can do stuff together...

i figured out later that it was 'man on the moon', tho i forgot most of the words! lol! i've also started playing 'baby's comin back' and a new sloan song :D

i would LOVE to find a great guitarist to play with, so that i could play other songs, too, like 'both belong' :D

Re: I miss live music :\
and then last tuesday, everyone was DANCING!

not that i'm that good, it's that they were that drunk.

i do aiight, but since i'm not a great guitarist, that pulls my 'show' down a bit.

Bah. I think modesty is getting in the way of your talent.

Re: I miss live music :\

true dat yo
Jun. 16th, 2003 01:11 am (UTC)
that response, coupled with that icon, looks SO ghetto, yo.

i still am dying to do 'both belong'.

which reminds me, i need to look up the words to 'i can feel it' for tuesday.

i SO want to group up with a great guitarist, because i'm dying to do 'both belong'!! we had started playing it a bit in my last band, but had to change the pitch and other things, because i can't sing as deep as falkner!

Hooray Aubrey!! Taking the Vancouver music scene by storm!! :) When do I get to see your name in lights and tell people that "I knew you when..."?? :)
Jun. 16th, 2003 01:16 am (UTC)

I would say me, but I haven't touched my gee-tar in months.
Jun. 25th, 2003 05:54 pm (UTC)

Jul. 4th, 2003 02:04 am (UTC)
Mando's don't fare well with neglect. You must visit your mando again. It is your destiny....
Jul. 5th, 2003 06:10 pm (UTC)

May. 8th, 2003 06:42 pm (UTC)
