Weekly Roundup 6/23/15

Reading: This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel J Levitin. (still reading)

Arranging: n/a

Practicing: A little uninspired to practice lately- the summer doldrums if you will. Usually when I feel this way I give myself a little space, or just sight-read etudes or solos I haven’t played in a while.

Rehearsing: Midnight in Moscow has three(!) upcoming gigs so we have a rehearsal Wednesday night to get ourselves into performance mode. We haven’t done a live show in over a year, so this will be fun!

Performing: Midnight in Moscow, June 27th at Hasley’s in Brainerd, July 1st at Driftwood Char Bar, and July 12th at Centennial Lakes in Edina. I have a new performance calendar! Bookmark it, subscribe to do, do what you gotta do- see you at the gig.

Listening: JD McPherson, Seun Kuti and Egypt 80, Modest Mouse- basically anyone who was at Rock The Garden this past weekend- and, on repeat, the new Tallest Man on Earth album (Dark Bird is Home) which is so painfully beautiful.

Teaching: So many students on vacation! Come back to me, students!

Relaxing: A family reunion in Chippewa Falls on Saturday, Rock the Garden on Sunday- I’m tired from all the relaxing.
