Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here. So long, in fact, that my last post references my wife, whom I've been (amicably) separated from for almost 5 months. I guess it's time to update you guys on what's going on with me.
Since my last post, I've officially been named one of the three Buffalo Joes, as I've taken on a role with The Buffalo Joes' Booking & Promotions. This stemmed from my attempt to create a one-stop destination site for all things music in the Buffalo/Niagara region, which is an ongoing project that I'm currently taking a moment away from to refresh and approach with new ideas. A moment in which I'm writing this blog post. I've got a renewed interest in the local music scene, and these two projects are helping me reconnect in a new way, being active while not being a performer.
It's summer, which means I've been mostly up to going to as many free outdoor shows as I can. Earlier tonight I saw Street Dogs and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Next week I'm going to see "Weird Al" Yankovic for the second time, and the following week I'm going to see Reel Big Fish and the Sublime tribute band Badfish. There's nothing I love more than a good live show.
That's pretty much everything that's going on since the last time I posted. I'm hoping to put together a show with some great local bands on my birthday as a launch party for my new music site. I'll try to pop back in here more often and keep everybody up to date on what's going on in my life.
