Lyric Open Mic: Jan 11, 2018

I feel like I have over played the 15 songs in my set.  If I was traveling town to town its one thing, playing local open mics is another.  I would like to add a few new songs and am in the writing process.  I am learning a few new covers as well but  nothing completed that I am confidant to bring out.  Because this lack of new material, I wasn't planning on playing this open mic however one of my friends was hosting so I changed my mind and decided to go and play something.  I packed up my guitar and headed out into the -29 C winter night for the frosty confines of the old Lyric Theatre.

Lot's of really talented performers played tonight.  Everything from Rock to rap, country to bluegrass.  I went on at 10:45 and randomly chose the following songs:

1. Mercury Blues (Alan Jackson cover)
2. The Ghost in You (Psychedelic Furs cover)
3. Whiskey and Gin (original)

Gate: ~ 50 persons
Bar Tab: $2.00 for exactly one water
Stage Gear:Green and grey checkered shirt, jeans and my fab European ankle boots.
Guitar: Beige Taylor
