Gateway Festival & more…

Well, it’s been a few days without wifi, but now I’m Louisville, Kentucky (pronounced: LOOL-vel).
To recap, the Thursday gig in Dayton wasn’t great. The order was completely the reverse of logic. There was almost no one there for our hour-long set, which was right after a full rock band. After us was a solo guitarist with a loop-station (digital-delay).
Afterwards, we went to an open mic just down the street that we’d been invited to by someone we met earlier in the week. The list was full, so we sat and watched some drunken bar goers harass the players, while a guy who signed up too late on the list demanded that the open mic host let him play even thought the bar was about to close… Ugh.
Anyway, Friday was a much better day for us. We went down to the National Air Force Museum and had a great time though we only got to stay for about an hour. We then headed over to The Columbus Bar in Columbus, Indiana which turned out to be an awesome show.
Admittedly, I wasn’t feeling to well during our set, but I did enjoy myself once I got to cool down and have a bite to eat. We met a whole lot of great people and are really looking forward to coming back through sometime.
Saturday found us in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky for the Gateway Festival, where we camped for the night. Sadly, this was a show with a lot of great potential that was very under-attended. The estimates of 20,000+ patrons we far off the mark with the biggest shows only drawing about 250, tops.
But again, we met some great people in other bands. One of which, called Weber is based in Louisville and put us up for the night. We play the Church on the Rocks open mic last night at the Hideaway Saloon, which is hosted by The Troubadours of Divine Bliss, who we finally got to meet. Both bands are great, and are just further proof of how kind and giving the Musical Community can be.
So that brings me to today, which has in been mostly time to catch up on email and such while we wait to head to another open mic tonight before we return to Columbus.
