6/24/2016 and 6/25/2016 TommyKnockers, Philipsburg, MT

26 Jun

244 miles from home, a four hour drive but we were glad we made the journey to play at this lively town. A small town but everybody comes out and a bunch of tourists as well. We didn’t want to pay for a motel so we set up our tent in the yard of the bar manager and it was like old times when I used to tour around quite a bit. Slept pretty well despite there being a duck in the yard that got loud at times. I might have dreamt it, but I am pretty sure that it landed on our tent in the wee pre dawn hours of the morning. Played Friday night and then we had all day Saturday to be tourists in the town and sit in TommyKnockers and eat and drink and watch Portugal play soccer and the US as well after that. Then i played again Saturday night. My life is a working vacation for sure – lots of work but lots of down time and relaxing and playing as well, I love being a musician. Met some really interesting people in this town, a few New Yorkers and people from all over. I love Montana!

The second closest gig in my time as a musician – a 5 minute commute. I didn’t forget any essential cables or gear, but this would be the gig to do that on. A perfect day, lots of people outside and some inside as well. We set up the speakers so people in the other room could hear me. It’s kind of strange to have people who are in a other room or outside and can’t see me and I can’t see them clapping for me, I liked it, a change of pace. I had a great night!

It’s been raining so much and on the cool side this spring but I got a perfect day for playing outside at the Farmer’s market. The market continues to grow every year and I saw more vendors and more faces out and about. After being in the recording studio for months it is nice to be out playing live again.
