Going a Little “Batty!”

The neatest thing happened to me today as I was sitting on a picnic bench practicing guitar at White Memorial Conservation Center. A little girl of maybe 5 or 6 years of age boldly walked up and sat down at the table. She was there to listen and I played her a few songs from my set. I was rather nervous picking out a song, as I wanted to be a good role model and not play something like my severed head tune!

So yes, I’ve been invited by Gerri Griswold to play a set of music for the 4th Annual Celebration for the Bats, this Saturday. I’m very excited to be playing because this is one of my favorite places from childhood into adulthood, and Gerri’s one of my favorite people. She’s known as “the Bat Lady” for good reason as you’ll see when you’re there. I’ll be singing/playing guitar with a set of originals and covers.

GlumPuppet Plays at ConnectiCON 2014

Drosh and I will be playing a short set of our music from GlumPuppet at this fun convention this year! We’ll be participating in the ConnectiCrawl that is a 21+ event co-hosted by ConnectiCon and various bars, restaurants and other venues in Downtown Hartford, featuring live performers from the fandom community! ConnectiCrawl will kick off at 6pm on Saturday night at Black Bear Saloon, and expand from there to include Burger Baby, Black-eyed Sally’s and other venues.

Will update when I find out what time we’re playing. We’re also hoping to get to do a second show that will include our videos, but we’ve yet to hear. Check back!
