Wow. Most incredible gig last night. It is the most wonderful feeling in the world to play with a band that can jam. I'm stunned. As much as I love recording and doing stuff with Tears for Agnes, the feeling I had while I was onstage last night ... that is a feeling to live for. The crowd was completely bowled over; there were screams and hoots throughout the tracks I played on, and huge applause at the end, and people wouldn't stop coming up to me to congratulate me all night. A girl called Marci in emo glasses ... a friend of Bill's, I think.

Mike, the keyboardist, has pitch like I do, I think. He was answering my calls ... unheard of! I started harmonizing with him later and ... oh, it was just incredible. To play with someone who understands how to do it. Bill Speakman probably gave me the biggest musical thrill I've had in years by following y rhythmic lead on the drums. To have a drummer follow me ... I'm still smiling. And the bassist, Wes, knows what he's doing, and communicates well. And the singer/guitarist, Bill, does as well. Unbelievable.

I think I surprised them a few times by following their riffs, too. Argh, I loved it! Now I just have to decide which gigs of theirs I can play ...
