Gigs and Lovely Shirts in the Garden of Heat

I have been booking myself into a Gigging fool, these next few weeks are going to be quite crazy and if I am sane at the end of it I ought to be one Hot Fiddler. Here's the schedule so far, for those interested....

August 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th at the Half Time Rec in St Paul with Folk UnderGround

( on August 4th we will be joined by Johnny " Big Sexy " Sjogren from the Tim Malloy's and on August 6th we will be joined by our very own MALENA!!!!! )

Augut 12th again at the Half Time Rec with Folk UnderGround

August 13th and 14th ( Daytime ) at the MN Renn Fest with Folk UnderGround and Bedlam

August 18th , 19th and 20th at Kieran's in Minneapolis with Folk UnderGround

August 20th and 21st ( Daytime ) at the MN Renn fest with Folk UnderGround and Bedlam

And weekends at the MN Renn fest until the end of September.

Notice that is not a typo for the 20th, ugh, we play until 2:00am Friday night, I do 11 shows at the festival all day Saturday , then go and play until 2:00am again at the bar , then back to the Festival by 9:00am Sunday for another 11 shows.....I will also be working on the cd as much as possible and working at my regular job, ( which can sometimes keep me fairly busy )

If it weren't for the magic that is Red Bull I might be seriously worried, hee-hee!

The diet and workout goes well, and I am thinking that much playing is going to be counting for somthing as well. I need to nip over to Malena's forum and website and re-read everything she has to say about weight loss and stress relief, she is very wise that one....

Not sure if I mentioned it or not, but it looks as tho the cd will be coming out in Mid-October. We will be taking pre-orders soon, I am thinking, and today Malena and I were talking about offering some very special advance promo Tee Shirts , we don't have many, but they are so lovely. I wanted to send everyone one , just because they are so very lovely, and Malena pointed out that would be very costly, so we are seeing if we can't offer them at just enought to cover costs, to our very first fans and friends. She has designed a wonderful shirt with one of Dr. Dan's Graveyard shots and I fell in LOVE with it last night. ( Actually she has done about three of them and they are all wonderful ). We will think this thru , but I believe we will shortly be adding a pay pal button for one of a kind advance cd shirts!

OK, so 90 degrees or not I am now going to the garden of Heated Doom to pick Things for dinner tonight. ( that sounded much more spooky than , " Picking Veggies now " )

Love and Much Music, Lorraine

wow, how you and johnny pull off fest+gig's is a mystery to me.
Going to be great to see you with FU on wednesday. With a little luck Johnny will be able to throttle his missing Mic from the band he loned the equipment out to these last 2 weaks.
There was a very unhappy Hans storming around the pub trying to collect equipment from verious nooks and crannys.
And I dare say that saturday will be even better. Going to be great to see Malena again.
See you in a few days.
Take care ladies.

Hmmm...That's not the best news. -I- was going to be asking Johnny if we could borrow a mic for Malena on Saturday, hee-hee...I have an extra one, but not sure how good it is. Best check that on Wednesday!

The fest/night gig thing is HARD that's all there is to say, but the stage time and the money is great. If you can live thru it.....

What time is the show at the Rec, and is there a cover on Sat.? I usually only go out on Tuesdays for the Tims, but I wondered if it worked differently on the weekends.

I also wondered if Malena was going to be out at the festival at all? I didn't think so since she lives so far away, but I thought it would be worth asking. I will be making sure to catch some bedlam and FU shows when I am not working or helping pass the hat for the Drunken Uglies (they had their first day in the studio yesterday, crossing fingers for getting it put together by september, at least it is just the 3 of them so it should be relatively simple)
