MM & LLK Saloon Show:
Friday's show at The Saloon seemed to be a turning point for Livin' Like Kings, as the latest lineup is starting to gel. Kind of funny that, again, we are turning into a bit of a jam band, but that's a good thing; You never know what is going to happen and it all becomes a bit more of an adventure.
When I don't have to worry about the band, I can relax and just be in the moment. I like that.
October 17th Show Cancellation:
In case you missed it the last time I posted, sorry to say that our October 17th opening slot for Elvin Bishop was cancelled due to the venue closure. It is disappointing, but I'm sure that another opportunity to open for a more established artist (more established than LLK, not Elvin, of course) will come along soon.
For us, it was only one show, but there are many more people who have been negatively affected by this closure. Here is the announcement : http://devillevacaville.com
Please join us in sending best wishes out to the staff at the theatre and the community of Vacaville as they work it out.
Wine, Women & Song FUNdraiser:
I'll be joining Susan Z and the wonderful Wine, Women & Song cast for their 16th annual breast cancer fundraiser. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE
Interesting, inspirational things I found on the internet:
Tax Ruling Seen As a Victory for Artists
Forgotten Female Programmers Who Created Modern Tech
Cat Tracks Down Human Companion After She Moves to Nursing Home
Not sure why I feel the need to share this one, except to maybe encourage more people to support our public schools, or as a cautionary tale to would be wandering spouses - from the WWTT* File:
Ross Principal Resigns
Inspired by the above story, I'm sharing this song, which is a rough cut of a cover tune I recorded several years ago - is dedicated to any woman who has been neglected and/or had a cheating husband. Grateful that those days are long gone for me. Learn a lesson every day.
Forgive, but never forget.
If we accept BS, pretty soon we'll be surrounded by it. (Same goes for concrete.)
That's it for now.
