I plan on finding a place to eat lunch around the venue tomorrow. Maybe some of us can meet there and go from there? Contact me.

When we were looking for a place to eat dinner last night, we found & Pizza near the venue. We decided to save it for the day of the show. Want to meet up there for lunch?

Hello Everyone!

Looking forward to making music with you today! I will be hanging around the venue probably all day, playing host. If you need me, have a question, etc. and don't already have my cell phone number, please send me a PM on the boards or on Facebook, and I'll hook you up.

What time do we want to meet up at &pizza? JB tells me he'll be getting to the venue at 12:00-12:15ish.

Also that name really should be &pizza; if it's going to be a valid XML entity.

Okay, I've met up with C-Ray and fluffy at Alphonse. We'll probably do {ampersand} later.

We had to turn around because we forgot something, and traffic sucks..

Yep, night 1 was amazing. Thanks everyone who made it so awesome, especially the folks I played with and who played with me. I'm glad we could pull it together!

Also, it was great to meet the folks I hadn't met before, and huge shout-out to Holly Furlone who blew everyone away. Welcome to Song Fight; keep being awesome. :)

Whooooo! Night one was so awesome. Great time playing with Manhattan Glutton, Caravan Ray, and Jon Eric, playing a few songs, and watching everybody play some great sets. This was honestly the best sounding night of performances I have heard yet at a Song Fight Live. Great job everybody! Can't wait for night two!

Hope everybody is having a great time, I am bummed that I couldn't make it. Mandatory orientation for a new job with the state. But I dreamt of it last night...behind a house there was a mass of people. My girlfriend and I were there. We talked to Caravan Ray, saw Jon Eric go by, and I knew JB was there but we didn't see him. Then Spud pulled up in a long white car made of Styrofoam.

Enjoy, and I'll raise a glass to you all tonight. Cheers!
