Live From Sugarhill Recording Tomorrow: Jonx, Tax, & Me

I have to say, times like this make me feel pretty damn fortunate. See, when The Jonx played their final breakup show last month, I couldn’t go — I was frantically packing to leave town early the next morning and trying to get a dozen things done besides. So I figured I was out of luck ’til the eventual (inevitable?) reunion show a year from now.

Luckily for me, it turns out The Jonxies have one last hurrah in ’em, and yes, I’m invited. (Eat it, suckers! Kidding, kidding…) Jonx drummer Danny Mee invited me to be the official Audience of One for the first (and last?) appearance on the Live From Sugarhill Studios online-video show. It’ll be The Jonx and H-town prog-ish rock guys Tax the Wolf playing in the historic Sugarhill rooms to none other than, um, me, and it’ll all be recorded for posterity & whatnot.

All of which is very cool, to me — I’ve enjoyed the episodes I’ve seen so far of LFSS, and I think it’s a damn cool idea to showcase bands like this, both local and not, as they do what they do best.

I have to admit, though, that I’m a little nervous being the one guy sitting there saying (hopefully?) witty, cogent things about the music. I do much, much better at expressing myself with the written word, at least in terms of not sounding like a complete idiot. (I think, anyway…) That, and the fact that I’m sitting in the space where folks like Chris Gray & David Cobb have sat in the past has me a bit twitchy.

So wish me luck, and I’ll attempt to not make an ass of myself. Cool?

    Heh. It was fun — sad, in a way, and I had very little idea what I was supposed to *do*, but fun…

    […] to check out, and awesomely good prog-pop band Tax the Wolf, who I was fortunate enough to have play for just little old me once upon a time. (No, seriously — I have videographic proof. And yeah, they were pretty […]
