Last night was Fray Day out here in Santa Monica. It was quite nice, but the turn-out wasn’t what I expected it to be. Most of the people heard it through word-of-mouth which was quite surprising. Then again, most people haven’t been checking The Fray out since 1997. Damn that’s a long time.
But the scheduled performers AND the open mikers were very good, the surprise being the open mikers. I’ve hosted and coordinated the huge Open Mike Night up in Santa Barbara (IV actually), and was quite bored through most of it. Nevertheless, there were many good stories shared last night.
It has gotten me motivated to get my ass writing, which is the main reason I went. My rate of writing has been like molasses. Hopefully that outlook will improve.
Any good shows in LA this week?
