DISPATCH 02-11-11 NEW YORK CITY

02-10-11

02-10-11 NYC NY: 1325 hrs. I have been in NYC for a few days. I have been jammed with shows, press and other obligations and let this humble report slip.


Last week, I don’t remember much of it. I was in LA working on things and doing press. The radio show was good. I hit the road Sunday morning at 0414 hrs. I got here and it’s been a blur ever since.


New York is always like this for me. It’s always press and meetings in the morning and usually a show at night and then some sleep. Other things fall to the side trying to hit all the marks on the schedule. It’s amazing that Thursday has come already. I am two shows into the string of dates and I think so far, it’s going well. Audiences here are fantastic, so I am in good company every night.


I am at a venue called Joe’s Pub. It’s very small and well run. Everyone seems to be comfortable, the staff is friendly and the sound onstage is good.


As you probably know, I take these shows very seriously. I want them to be as good as they can and sometimes, the hours before the show are somewhat distracted and prone to anxiety. I cannot fail an audience. Of course I can and easily have but I can’t. I think you know what I mean.


So, often the afternoons I feel like I am in holding, waiting for the evening to start. I am feeling better, now that I have a couple under my belt. I am looking forward to the rest of the week of shows.


On Sunday morning, I will get to Washington DC in the afternoon and have a few hours off before I have to get to the venue for soundcheck. Then, there’s two shows that night. It feels like a lot initially but by the time you’re into the second one, it’s nothing you can’t deal with.


I don’t know if I will have the opportunity to write on that day as things will be moving very quickly. Perhaps on Monday or Tuesday I can. As it is now, I have to get radio notes ready for this Saturday’s show and I am getting a bit nerved up about tonight. Sorry for filing late and thanks for reading this. Henry
