“North of Nowhere…” Well, at least we’re trying to get our name out there: Open Mic adventures, part 2…last week Mr. Whoamus posted a blog entry about my band North of Nowhere’s appearance at an open mic at Neisen’s in Savage on 4-22. While the band has been together for a couple of years, we’ve only had the present personnel with the band since the first of the year, so we’re still trying out songs on the (unsuspecting) public. Last Saturday we signed up for an open mic at the American Legion in Savage. Little did we know when we showed up that the first Saturday of the month is always “kids night,” where all the students of the guitar teacher who plays lead in the house band are invited to come up and play. While it gives these kids some good exposure, it does make for a long night for us geezers, who were the last act of the evening. So, after over 3 hours of waiting (thank God they have an open bar!), they saved the best for last…check out this vid of our opening number, and come see us for a full evening at the Ugly Mug in Farmington, MN on 5-15 (www.theuglymug.biz). Thanks to Mr. Whoamus himself for the camera work, Chris for the posting, and keep on rockin’!
