That Felt Good

The Misanthrope played a double set tonight at Fontana's, a new club on Eldridge between Broome and Grand. It was nice to play at a club where the people who work there were actually friendly and nice. All in all, it turned out to be a good night. I hope Fontana's turns into a great club, at least so I can say that I was in the first two bands ever to play there.

First up was the Via Skyway set with George, Chrispy, Rob Machold and MikeDot. As usual, Rob shepherded us through and kept the vibe nice and quiet. Chrispy wins the purple heart for singing the most heartbreaking song in the set, "River," without aid of a monitor.

The Microdot set felt great. It felt like Joe, Mike and I clicked live for the first time (out of three shows). I was having a great time, even if I am now even more deaf.

Next show is January 3rd at Pianos.

Thanks for the purple heart - was the performance heartbreaking 'cause I didn't have a monitor, or was it just sad?

Dave Cavalier said...

Not at all. I was amazed at how well you did with no monitor. You're a natural.

Chrispy said...

Them's some kind words.

Now back them up.

Just kidding.

I enjoyed Microdot. What's the new song that's not as new as the newest one (the newest being the one only your dogs have heard)? You played it at Piano's as well.

prison cake? it starts like a pop song and ends with a gratuituous guitar solo.

oh wait...that's all our songs. :)

Chrispy said...

Could be "Prison Cake."

It definitely had guitar in it, if I remember correctly.

There was a good hook as well.
