well, i went to one on sunday night, and played 5 originals and a dylan cover. i was a little nervous before hand and the pa was loud and reverb-y, so i didn't sing particularly loud, and i spent a lot of it trying to sing and play into the oddly positioned mics. after i got done, a very pretty girl told me that i was a "morose motherf---er" and that if she was working at a mcdonalds and i came through the drive-thru, that she'd probably kill herself. needless to say, such a wonderful compliment perked me right up.

Way to go Jason. :D

So, your songs are a little on the dark side are they? Hey, go back again, but this time include a happy song just for her like "Rubber Ducky" at the end. That will blow her mind and make you a crowd favorite.

Keep going back.

There's nothing wrong with being morose, it just demonstrates that you know what's going on in the world :wink:

Congrats on the gig, btw...

Think of all the money you saved on an engagement ring, tuxedo, big wedding, mortgage, THEN four years later she tells you she thinks you are a morose mo-fo and she wants to kill herself, but decides to run off with her lawyer instead. :oops:

Great job on the open mike. And doing your own songs too! That takes stones, and chicks dig stones.
