Begin something like 20:30 – I do Gravity, Nothing But Green Grass, Learning to Crash, River Rise and Iodine. There’s a forlorn cry for The Things You Get, but I tell them to hang on until Christmas. Goes quite well, I think. I forget slightly less of the bridges in Nothing But Green Grass.
Lot of fun – very supportive crowd. I go fully a capella for the first verse of River Rise, and they seem to be with me.
I do a lot of mad banter. I wish I could remember half of that nonsense. Also plug the track-a-wee-upload concept. Perhaps I’ll get downloads from someone who isn’t a Chinese search engine bot. I seem to be very popular with Chinese search engine bots, though I doubt they count as an untapped market.
