Solo at the Pigeonhole
I did an open mic recently at the Pigeonhole. Hosted by Wang Wei Yang of MONSTER CAT. There were a total of 5 acts. We drew lots at 7:45PM for our slots. Anyway, someone couldn’t do the last slot, so I agreed to take it. Sort of a bad idea, because it meant I was pretty plastered by the time I got onstage at around 10:30PM. I think I shouted into the mic for the earlier two songs. This last song was the one I wasn’t sure whether to play. The melody wasn’t never an obvious one. The laughing you hear largely came from Jay, my counterpart in Silverspy. Most of my friends were equally plastered. I did a lot of banter in-between songs, which must have felt–at least to this bunch of drunks–just like stand-up.
