the end of an era
every tuesday night for the past 5 years i have been playing music at bethany community church. it began with dave myron, josh head and i with a band that we called "Elwood P. Dowd." we only played two shows/parties but we had a ton of fun, and created some really great music. in the last two and a half years i have switched from guitar to drums and have been playing with the Republic. we still will be practicing on sunday nights, but the tuesday night night is over. (sigh) dave and i (dave is in the republic with me, but josh is now playing with emery) had a moment of realization last tuesday night that it was a staple for us for longer then i was in college. and now it is over. the good news is that our band is VERY close to finally putting our money where our mouth is and heading to the studio to record our full length album, I think it is going to be really great, and we have very high hopes for it. we have been reforming and polishing these songs for about 9 months, and just met with jon auer (the posies) tuesday who is excited about our project as well. whether we hire him (or josh ottum, or no one) as producer is our last major decision. all to say, bon voyage tuesday night...you will be missed.
