So, it’s another week and I hear Al D is the lead-du-jour. Good to see him, maybe we’ll get some of that Bayside entourage going with Al. It’s always a bit freakier every time he shows up. While the jam hasn’t happened yet, get a load of the pictures of the spider that spins webs in my front door every day that I walk through every morning. I would kill it if it wasn’t so photogenic.

Halftime here at the jam eating bugles as Kevin is vending like a madman. Great stuff to post at halftime. Alan showed up with Alan on harmonica and Coffee Boy also showed. Super big sound in the room. A bit out of control.

Made it home nicely.  I was able to score 3 bags of primo coffee, so I’m all excited about that.  Was great to see Coffee and play with him.  The same will bayside Al who always kicks up the freak level a notch and then let us not forget Harmonica Al who played rhythm harmonica throughout the evening, with me trying to remember to call out the keys for him.

Scott Bayer was there for a song or two, asking us about short films.  We played a China-Rider over the cell phone to Carol.  We played, we hing and we ate lots of vending food.  All and all a fun night a raucus activity.  You knew the energy level was going to be pretty high when we opened with a lengthy Other One.  There wasn’t much that was slow and easy.  The Masterpiece that I atempted may have been the lowest we got.

Nothing left of the jam but an empty bag of Crunch and Munch.
