I knew that we were going to have few of our regulars, at least I knew that David, Lena, Harry and Pedro (s'that right?) were out of town. We had Tobi Joi, a cool Swiss musician playing his home-brewed Alphorn through an EDP. He can only come from 1pm to 2pm (he works) and we're going to feature him next week at 1pm and try to get people out for it (he's never had much of an audience because he plays so early). My old pal Jeremy Halpern showed up and did live looping with a little Yamaha sequencer (a QY-70). I didn't play too much at all :-D and even brought a book to read to keep me away from the instruments ("The Mothman Prophecies", HIGHLY recommended, also see the film if you can.) There were some visitors from Looper's Delight, at least one of whom wanted to play next week and should contact me as I totally forgot who you were! I heard some looper gossip too but shan't reveal it. We did well on paid admissions too (at $2 you can hardly go wrong). We're going to change things around this Saturday by having some assigned slots for players. Several people have asked me for this so that they can tell their friends when to show up to see them. Contact me soonest if you want a slot. Or, just drop by with gear. /t -- http://loopNY.com ......................An "open loop": shows every Saturday! http://whatGoes.com/submit .......................... submit to the calendar.
