People's Pint, Greenfield
1st gig. Mmmmmm. An inauspicious start to the tour. It was a very nice restaurant. Great food and they brew their own real ales. It was packed, but... by the time I came to play the place and almost emptied. They had me singing through a guitar amp because the PA was down and I had to sing with my mouth touching the mic for the whole set to earth it or it gave off this loud buzzing noise. $7 in the tip jar. Friday night in small town America. No one in couchsurfing here either, thankfully the chef let me sleep on her floor. So, I've had better shows.... but it will take more than that to get me down. It's a beautiful day. I'm up with the lark (still on European time). I'm off to Boston and better shows and I have a slap-up, $7 breakfast to look forward to.
