It’s a little after midnight here in Amsterdam. I just walked off stage. Three hours and two minutes of talk that poor audience endured. Out of here in a few hours to go to London. Saturday night off in London! Talk about rare.
Tonight’s show is one that Engineer X and I have been waiting to unleash for quite awhile. We put it together a few days ago at the KCRW Rok Mosk and we think it sounds great. It’s all New York area music, including those who came to New York to be where the action was. You will see many familiar artists and bands in our playlist tonight. There’s not a bad song in the bunch.
It was SO great to be live with you last week. Thanks for all the great letters. Next week and the week after, we will be back with you live as well. Next week is our fund drive night. Don’t tune out!
I have been battling jet lag for the last few days. Usually it lets me go after a couple of days but this time, it’s hanging in there with great tenacity. I had a great time last night in Eindhoven, home town of one Theo Van Rock, the legendary soundman of the Rollins Band. He was in great health and spirits, always good to see him.
I have to be up in a few hours to head to the airport. I anticipate a sticky day in London but the night should be great. I will be onstage at the Sonisphere Fest on Sunday and then right to the airport to get to DC for the Evens show at Fort Reno Monday night. Rumor has it that Joel, Fanatic Ohio will be there as well, he just checked in and said he was heading out there. It’s a great place to see a band and I am sure there will be many familiar faces at that show. I am bringing my camera!
Ok, Fanatics, dig the NYC jams and STAY FANATIC!!!
