SATURDAY IS OUR annual anniversary party for Second String Music. Six years? Seriously? We will celebrate and do what we do best, that is, have some controlled chaos and more fun than should be allowed.
Click here for all the details. The highlight of this year's event is the El Crapon smashing in Schuecking's parking lot. Jim Percy went to a lot of trouble and effort to make a cajon to smash. I believe Jim went to the Frank Haxel school of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But he's delivering the goods and I wouldn't miss it, if I were you.
We have a Cheeseburger gig the night before so I'll be groggy from the start. One thing I've learned about these store parties is that it's a marathon, not a sprint.
Nah, to heck with that. I'll be running as soon as I hit the ground, probably.
Also, you can meet the newest member of my guitar family. She's a gorgeous cherry stain Gretsch Broadkaster. Her name is Genevieve. I am shaking and can hardly type.
See you Saturday for a smashing good time! And to get us in the mood, here's Chris Kelly's amazing Table 16 video from last year's event.
