So that gas smell in the apartment that Morgan mentioned in her last post? Turns out the gas smell was gas. Long story short, we didn't have heat yesterday and don't have it today. Morgan's nice and toasty at work, but I haven't been getting many jobs lately (apparently the most popular New Years resolution was to stop having your piano tuned), so I have nowhere to go. I'll probably head to a coffee shop in a bit, but for now I'll keep the Lou dog company and bundle up.
I can handle being cold and underemployed with such exciting things happening with this band. Last night's AcoustiCafe was a great, full night of music, but we couldn't get on until 10:20. By that point, the crowd was rowdy and pretty drunk, so we figured, oh well, it might not be our night, but we enjoyed hanging out. We played a newer song called "Hell," and by the time we finished we could hear a pin drop. It's a great feeling to feel the crowd's energy right alongside ours. We got a great response, so thanks for that if you were there!
Just checked the band email, and our single, "Wait," has been selling all over the world! We only get info on iTunes sales every 6 weeks or so, so it was a very pleasant surprise to see we're racking up sales all over the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Africa and Antarctica are the last holdouts, but we'll work on those.
The album is really starting to sound like we've been envisioning it. In some ways, even better. We truly cannot wait to share it with all of you on June 1.
I think we'll check out a new open mic tonight at the James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy. Come hang out with us!
That's all for now.
