Helen Gillet, Will Thompson, & Doug Garrison @ The Broadside
Tonight I went to hear my fist live performance since March. It was at The Broadside, which is a great outdoor venue in New Orleans. The chairs are well spaced, the people all wear masks, the sound is good. There is food and drinks. Plus there is a cool view of downtown from the right seats. It was nice to hear music with people and not feel like I was being pandemic irresponsible.
Helen, Will, and Doug sounded great, and it was great to see and hear my friends. I will be playing there next Wednesday with a new band that will be lots of fun. Tickets here.
