It was indeed the Eric & Andy show ... and a GREAT Eric & Andy show. A kind of tepid response from the audience, except for the gerbil who talked all the way through the friggin show. If you want to talk, go outside.

Only Coffee House In Town
Ghosts
Wilderness Of Smiles
Need
Trophy Wife
The Woman I Want
Color Of Your Eyes
How Can I Miss You?
Dancer (first perfomance, BOY does it need work)
Roman Wall Blues
Hides

I did Pine City Motel Blues at the circle later, and then Hides again with Andy, Nate and various other folks. Chas said that he was worried when we started it, but that it ended up ... what did he say ... something about a tribal rhythmic thing ... yeah ... that's what it was.

I'll talk more about the con and the other folks who played and such later. Now I have to get caught up at work.

So, I know where I am going to be and when. My two official moments are ...

Songwriting
A panel discussion of the process of songwriting.
Nate Bucklin, Eric Coleman, Graham Leathers, Peggy O'Neill, Chas Somdahl, Adam Stemple (boy am I outta my league with this bunch)
Saturday, 5:00-6:00pm ~ Ship Side

And a concert at 10pm Saturday, I am assuming Ship Side as well. There is a good chance that Andy will not be at this show, his Mom had surgery yesterday, and he is uncertain if he will make it back. Send good thoughts to his Mom please.

The rest of the music programming looks great ...

Jamming 101
What makes a good music jam. What to do and not to do.
Becca Leathers, Graham Leathers, Peggy O'Neill, Chas Somdahl
Saturday, Noon-1:00pm ~ Ship Side

Guitar Workshop (if you are a guitar player, GET TO THIS PANEL !!!)
A music lesson from our fan guest of honor. Bring your guitar and join Nate as he covers the basics of finger-picking and scales. This is most definitely a participatory event.
Nate Bucklin
Saturday, 2:00-3:00pm ~ Ship Side

Group Sing
Come sing with us!
Saturday, 3:30-4:30pm ~ Ship Side

The Performance Panel
What can and should be done in a musical performance to make it a good show.
Dave Clement, Becca Leathers, Peggy O'Neill, Chas Somdahl
Sunday, 2:00-3:00pm ~ Ship Side

I also intend to make a trek over to Everest On Grand for a meal at some point if I can. Any else wanna go ???

That I have to go to Minicon now ... I bought a membership.
ericcoleman: (Default)
I won't mention the dreadful instrument of torture that Chirosinger made me lay down on ... but oddly enough my back feels much better

Now off to the hotel
ericcoleman: (Default)
So I am here in [livejournal.com profile] chirosinger's front room.

Coming up to see Harlan Ellison was definitely worth it. He was hysterical. In the film that preceded him Robin Williams described him as a frustrated Borscht Belt comic in the body of a science fiction author. Pretty much spot on.

I do have to talk about one thing that happened on the way. I found the perfect CD store. In Mason City Iowa. CDGBs ... you have to love a store that has 20 some titles by the Strawbs in stock. You want 70s brit folk rock ... they have what you want in stock.

I could go broke in an hour there.

So [livejournal.com profile] chirosinger, [livejournal.com profile] chasophonic, and [livejournal.com profile] bonz_lizard and I hung out for a bit at the hotel and then [livejournal.com profile] chirosinger and I came back here where I was assaulted by the most dreadful of beasts. She and I then talked till sometime around 2, which included playing some songs and then talking some more. She seem to be fixated on some canadian guy ... I'm not sure why. But she was awful darn happy last night. ::insert happy puppy dance for her and Graham here::

Sleep happened, I was assaulted by the ferocious beasts again this morning and now she is going to make me drink some odd concoction ...

So it's been a good weekend so far, and the weekend hasn't even started

more later

So I went to the Minicon website to get directions and stuff.

Harlan Ellison is speaking thursday night. I don't want to miss that.

The friend that I am staying with may decide that 3 nights of me in her guest room is too much, is there anyone who could put me up thursday night if that is the case?

Also, just to beg, I really can't afford this, so if you don't have my CDs, and want them, search me out this weekend and buy them from me !!!

I'm also going to have flyers with me ... for MY local con that I am running music for. Where a certain Dementia artist is going to make his first Iowa appearance. Get your memberships now !!!

Hmmmm
