Breaking the long lull in posting with a few photos today from this past Thursday night’s first annual fundraiser show for the Weathervane Music Organization. If you havn’t heard of Weathervane it’s a non profit organization cofounded by Philadelphia’s own Brian McTear to work with and support independent artists in this challenging new era for working musicians. You can learn more and get involved by lending your support here http://weathervanemusic.org/. Thursday night started off in the amazing space at 2424 Studios with a special solo show by Scott McMicken of Dr Dog at a special VIP pre-show party. It then moved over to Johnny Brendas for a show by all of the artist’s Weathervane had worked with on their 2009 Project Series, {{{Sunset}}}, East Hundred, Danielson and BC Camplight. A perfect way to cap off 2009 and set the anticpation high for Weathervane’s 2010 projects.

While You Were All Here, I Was Walking In Memphis

So after nearly a week of no posts you’re probably wondering what’s up at Bag Of Songs, I no internet access to update during the week so I’ll kind of summarize with some photos and a little accompanying mini mix for you today. The beginning of the week started off having to get upo at 4:00 AM in lovely freezing 10 degree weather to board a 7:00 AM flight to Memphis for a work trip. Arrived right on time and spent the morning seeing a bit of Memphis and then checked into my hotel to await the arrival of my coworkers who were all on later flights. As the hours passed and no one arrived it became pretty obvious that their flights into Memphis didn’t go nearly as smoothly as mine, taking anywhere from 7 to 12 hours for a 2 and half hour trip. The next morning brought another extra special treat, a fire alarm going off in our hotel at 7:00 AM. Everyone had to climb down the stairs and evacuate the building until the firemen arrived and the all clear was given to re-enter. Thankfully there was no big fire, just a smoke alarm going off for some reason or other. Wednesday night was my birthday and a group of my friends joined me for a night out on the town on Beale Street, Memphis equivalent of Bourbon Street in New Orleans, where a great time was had by all. Thursday night was the trip home arriving in Philadelphia just in time to head over to the North Star Bar and catch a set by the always amazing Jealous Girlfriends. Finally, after that it was arrival home.
