That's a really cool idea.

Please do record the whole thing for those of us that can't be there!

We'll miss you but we plan to record. Not sure about livestream. Not my department :)

If no one has claimed live stream duties I can try to set up my old Galaxy S4 to stream to Facebook like last year, assuming the venues have wifi. It would be great if we had a volunteer who could monitor the stream periodically while I'm on stage, too. I'll need a vantage point near an outlet, and it might be good if we had an extension cord to expand our camera positioning options. Last year I think I put the camera on top of a mic stand, so, we could do that. I'll bring my GorillaPod too in case we need to clamp it on to some random fixture.

Have fun guys. Sorry I couldn't make it. I was genuinely considering - but glad I decided against it. I was in Court on Wednesday - and 5 year of shit with my (one) ex-wife is now officially over. I had ideas that SFL would be a nice celebration - but the anxiety produced by the whole process made the idea of overseas travel a bit beyond me.

Maybe next year - with my lovely new partner Charmaine (for those of you who were at my my recent SFL appearances - yes, my circumstances have changed for the better - sorry to disappoint my US female fan-base)

That is an awesome idea.

Now I wish I had have come just to be in that .

Heading off soon to the practice space to try to throw together the cover band thing and do some last minute rehearsals. Should be fun! We'll try to post some pics. Maybe I'll bring along the Facebook live stream setup to test out too if they have wifi...

Practice was really fun! We had some successful tests of the Facebook live stream. Hopefully it will work tonight, it's going to be a great show. Hope you all can tune in if you're not here.

OMG, what an amazing Song Fight Live! Huge thanks to incredible hosts Jeff and Leah, they knocked it out of the park. Everybody sounded great, the Song Fight Tribute Band was SO much fun, the live fight was awesome, and for the first time that I've ever seen we had a random audience member write a song on the spot and join in the live fight. So cool!

A ton of fun and a ton of work. I've got newfound respect for everyone who has organized these in the past. (The real credit goes to my wife. I was mostly just the equipment wrangler.)

We should do the tribute portion every year. My thanks go to Sam for making charts for all the songs.

Hi everyone. We're back in the land of tea and roundabouts, still reeling from the shock of our live fight victory. It was great to see everyone again. Thanks to Jeff and Leah for putting on the thing and welcoming us to the great city of Denver!

You didn't know how much we craved that Brexit-related content.

I forgot to say, big congrats to Stuff and Nonsense (aka sheail and his missus) for their hilarious song that made them the clear winners of the live fight. Check the live stream archive on Facebook to hear the song, they went second to last, it's great.

Also notable was that, for the first time that I've seen, we had an audience member not affiliated with Song Fight! actually write a song on the spot and perform in the live fight. That was so awesome! I was really impressed that she was interested and inspired and cranked out a song and got up in front of a bunch of strangers and played a brand new song she'd never played before. I don't remember her name and I don't know if anybody got any of her info like if she has a Web site or anything, though, but congrats to her.

EDIT: The newbie is about 1:14 into this video: https://www.facebook.com/songfight.org/ ... 28/?type=1

And the winning song is about 1:23 into the video, check it out!
