It’s been a while since I have done a show in the middle of the week. Most musicians around town use weekdays to visit an open mic and work out songs in the company and audience of their fellow local musicians. So it is tough to get something going big before Thursday or Friday if you are playing. That said, The Sleuth were really happy to come to Fitzgerald’s and play for the first time.
The folks at Fitzgerald’s have done a lot of work to the place. ‘The Yard’ portion of the venue–once an over-sized plane of dirt and a cheap platform stage–is now a really cool outside bar and venue in its own right. It even features swings to sit in on one side of the bar. It’s weird, but it works and contributes to the quirkiness of the outside venue.
The sound system was great and our sound man Justin was on top of everything. I record every show and he even stopped my recorder and brought it to me after I was finished playing to make sure I didn’t forget it. Thanks, Justin!
The headliner, Lindsay Clark went on after us and her angelic voice cleansed the air in the room. She really is a lovely singer and we thanked her for travelling all the way from Oregon to come play our dusty little town in Texas. Safe travels, Lindsay!
The following is our stats from the show. Thank you to all who came out!
