Kind words for I Have Eaten The City.

Wednesday, I brought my replacement computer out to play live for the first time.  I’m now on a Mac, so everything’s changed. I’m running Ableton Live (in time I will be incorporating  Max for Live), so the ride was a bit bumpy… but I had fun.

I performing in I Have Eaten The City with my good friends Colin Fisher and Brandon Valdivia (who play together as Not the Wind, Not the Flag).  It’s been ages since we last played, but it felt good to perform again!  Hopefully we’ll reprise those good vibes when we perform again on June 26th at NACO Gallery!

Looks like the venerable Mr. David Dacks had a good time at the show too.  Here’s his review in Exclaim!  (please note, the crowd looked nothing like that!)

Thanks David!  And hopefully our billmates–Constellation‘s Nick Kuepfer and Khôra, along with Silent Land Time Machine, have a good tour ahead of them!  🙂
