Right Round - 5/16/09 - Setlist and Commentary

So, along with graduation weekend came a lower-than-normal turnout, however what the crowd lacked in size, they MORE than made up for in enthusiasm! I tried out a couple of things that I either haven't played in a while, or I just was never sure would work - and they TOTALLY did!

I realize that I've been freakishly absent from this blog...

I actually have a good excuse - I've been SUPER busy!

But, check back with me soon, and I'll have a couple of new setlists up, and maybe some fun info about a new blog I'm thinking of.

OOOOOH - yay!
