While ‘My Friend Lisa‘ is still rocken out on a regular basis I have this other musical project with the ever delightful Mikala and our drumming friend Gabe. We call ourselves ‘Waiting For Mikala‘ and thanks to the awesomeness of another band ‘Andorra‘ we were invited out to play a show with them at the Backstage lounge yesterday!! We also brought out the ever talented Jenna Mack to play an ever awesome set as well.
It was also my lovelies’ birthday! So we embarrassed the shit out of her by singing happy birthday!! :)
I rock out so hard that I need to sit!

The Master of time! Gabe
And Andorra with their awesome set!
Check them out on their Facebook Or Bandcamp pages!
Last night, Jenna, Mikala, Miranda & I all went out to the Open Mic at Corduroy in kits. We had a beer, played a few songs, (royally messed a couple of them up but it was totally ok) & had an absolute blast. It was a great stage and some unbelievably talented people came out. One guy we all agreed we wanted to be our adopted grandpa :) The guy Mike who was running it all was a super nice guy and couldn’t believe that this was Mikala’s first time. Mostly because she rocked it!!!

I can guarantee that we will be back! Hopefully I can convince some peeps from My Friend Lisa to stay up a little later on a Tuesday night some time! :)
Lately I find myself doing a lot more music wise then I do photo wise (not to say that I am going to become a jerk with a camera /guitar/banjo/microphone or anything anytime soon) In addition to playing in our increasingly inaccurately described folk rock duo My Friend Lisa (there are four of us now) I have found my self playing with Mikala on a fairly regular basis. I have also been working on a raunchy punk rock side project with my other awesome friend Jenna (whom you may remember from this video) called “The Stank“ All that & I have been recording a few demos for other people! All in all it has been rather busy on the music front these past months.
All the while I have been tring to live up to the camera part of my jerk with a camera name though, as such this is a polaroid from Wednesday of my friend Mikala manhandling Chester!
We were working on some new material but its not quite ready for the masses yet so I will leave you with a cover of the worlds best band EVAH!!!
