I think Robin and I are going to do this.

I've always wanted to get to San Francisco and didn't pull the trigger on Songfight I-LWC. Get this, I thought the whole idea of internet people meeting up in real life was just too dangerous and crazy at the time. (I read too much news and that was the fear they were peddling back then)

2010 was a weird year for me so I didn't make it then either.

Now, I'm thinking about going.

I've got to get back to myself in a lot of ways and this even might be helping with that. So to any of you out there who remember me helping ruin your songs on stage, I'm going to be making more efforts to practice up in general. See, I haven't been playing that much lately. My studio is all set-up pretty and you might catch me even exercising on the drums, but I've got to pick up that bass again. Pick up that guitar and start singing until I can stop looking at my hands again, etc...

If my wife, Robin is there... then that may force me to actually be ready to present myself as the true-rock-star that I really am.

Sockpuppet is also in. It was hard getting the entire band to agree but we eventually came to a decision.

D00d, we might need a drummer! And of course it would be good to see you again. Long time. Drinking French wine all night in Tampa was fun (but the hangover the next morning was awful)

I think this is by far the earliest the date and venue has been solidified ever. Plus it's a cool bar! Well done Sam.

Great venue, and seems like it’s shaping up to be a great lineup! Very sad I can’t be there. 2021, baby!
