'Dragon with matches, loose on the town...'
We debuted a gang of new originals last night, and they all seemed to get a decent reception. We also paired up with our pals Grand Bell, and if you haven't seen them, do it.
We also did a couple new covers, a slowed-down bluegrass standard, "The Old Home Place," and the Dead's "Fire on the Mountain," which we did do once before, the very first time I played electric guitar with the band... this time was significantly better. For a fairly straightforward tune, it's tougher than you might think to nail the kind of epic feel it has. But we're gettin' close.
