Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Gig Tomorrow

Saw Old Crow Medicine Show Wednesday night at the Rockingham County Fair. They definitely rocked the joint. Ketch and Critter and the gang know how to put on a show. And to think I jammed with Critter back in the day! I saw Ketch a couple months ago. He told me when he was just a young teen that he and his friends would sit around and listen to Book of Kills tapes. And that's my main claim to musical fame, I guess?

Looking forward to the first show I've played live in over three years and it's tomorrow which right now is almost today! Live shows are hard on me. I love playing my music in front of others but it's also a tortuous thing for me since I have such f$%#ing stage fright. I begin to obsess about a show usually at least a week ahead of time and this time it's probably worse since I haven't been in front of an audience in such a long time. Anyway, I hope to record the performance, good or bad, and I'll post it some time next week, good or bad, on the audio page for a time in case anyone wants to listen to it! Of course, if you're in the area, I hope you'll stop in tomorrow night and join everyone else there for a few hours of intense rock and roll. We'd love to see you there.

The next time I post the show will have long been over. Till then...
