1st show

the first show with the vibraphonette was last october at pete's candy store in brooklyn, ny. my friend laurel was kind enough to give us a ride in her blue saab and the vibraphonette fit perfectly in the trunk. adam, the vibraphonettist, is pictured along with konrad, the drummer.

when i tipped it to put the legs on, i noticed some small black plastic pieces fell on the floor. i figured out later that they were broken pieces of the plastic that kept the metal bars from touching the metal supports that keep the bars up. i think the plastic is so old that the movement of the bars in transit cracked them.

the was also the first show for my new guitar, which is actually a very old and very groovy supro hollowbody electric guitar. the audience seemed much more excited about the vibraphonette, though. after the show i spent quite some time telling everything i knew about it - which wasn't much.
