Lots to do this week!

Three Mike Mangione shows this week after being off for most of the month – I need to get back up to speed!

We’re playing at SPACE in Evanston (Chicago area) on Wednesday and this is my first time playing there. New venues are always tricky – it’s a “listening room” – you have to know how much room you have and what gear to bring. (Six people on stage!)

I am thinking that it’s going to be a kick/snare/floor and two cymbals type of affair. Sometimes it cool to bring a stripped down kit and really pay attention to what you are playing but we are recording so an extra tom for variety wouldn’t hurt. ๐Ÿ™‚
