Last nights gig at the House of Blues

Well, last night was fun… I managed to pull the gig off even though the fuse in the amp blew minutes before my set started. Of course there weren’t any spares so..out of luck there, lesson learned! I had to run my guitars through the PA and take what I could get. At first I got  a little nervous thinking “oh my god, what the hell kind of noise am I going to subject all these people to!” then I figured I would just have to improv a bit and make the best lemon aid I can. As I said before in another blog, I am learning how to flush out the bugs as I go, paying my dues… that way later on I will not make the same mistakes when the stakes are higher. But, no matter what ~ shit happens~ it’s how you deal with it that counts. The show must go on, people don’t pay good money to watch you fuss. There were times in my set where I could hardly stand the noise I was making but, I could see everyone smiling and dancing so, I just shut my brain off and sang my ass off.

Bill of course like always rocked it out, beating away like a heart beat running through our set keeping everything in line. I love him!

I feel kind of weird now, like hmm it’s all over… now what. Need to set up another gig. I thought I wouldn’t play today because I exhausted my self yesterday but I am already craving the guitar … I guess I will go practice some more.

Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the gig, it means a lot to me. Making and sharing my music is one of the most important things in life so, it feels amazing to have support and love when I’m up there feeling naked and raw giving every ounce I’ve got, so yes… thank you!

Trisha Lurie and Bill Delia at the House of Blues, Foundation Room next Sat night. 4-2-11 @ 10:30
I am happy to say that I will be playing in the (cool and eclectic) Foundation Room Saturday April 2nd at 10:30 pm. The amazing drummer Bill Delia will be beating the cajon and I will be doing my best to rock out. Looks like I have a 45min-hour set. so that is good 🙂 I will be able to play a good collection of my songs. There is great food and drink so come early and hang out. There is a great band before and after me 🙂
My Sister and her band, Dirty Birdy, played here recently and I had such a good time. I am looking forward to it.. I hope everyone can make it out and have a good time. I would love to be asked back to play again.. so, hopefully there will be a good turn out and I wont suck, haha.
Let me know if you want tickets. they are $10 dollars. You can grab them now or at the door. I will have someone with the remaining tickets at the door the night of the show, but I would love to know if you are going to make it… Anyway with that said, Have a great day!
