So today was a pretty full day. I’ve got everything done except for getting a haircut, and packing up my suitcases. 😀
I started the night by catching one of my favorite San Diego Singer/Songwriter’s Jeffrey Joe play at Cosmo’s in La Mesa. He played my favorite song of his! (Even though he was saving it for the end of his set.) I then ran back to my pad, grabbed all my new gear. (Thanks SWEETWATER SOUND!!!) and headed off to Mueller College for my gig.
I played to a pretty empty room, but that’s all good. I wanted to just be fresh on some of my newer tunes. For some reason I couldn’t get my loop pedal to feed into my new amp. (I think it’s a problem with the pedal, but I’ll figure it out in a bit.)
I’m pretty nervous, excited about the tour. I think I’m worried about the LA show the most. (Room 5- 9:00) You’d think after living in a place for a year that you’d meet alot of people and they’d come out and support, but LA is one of those cities, where there’s something going on every night, so you’re lucky when people come. (And just so you guys know…. I absolutely appreciate whenever anyone comes to a show. Don’t ever think… “oh, I’ve come to 5 of Josh’s shows in a row… he’ll think I’m stalking him…” -I won’t think that. And sometimes I need that reassurance to keep pushing.)
I got the idea for a really cool prize for people who sign up for my mailing list on this tour! Anyone who signs up from Today (September 25th) till October 22nd will be entered in a contest to win my tour camera! (I bought a disposable camera and will be taking photos of the tour!) If you’re already signed up, that’s okay! You can enter by giving me tour advice on Facebook or Twitter! Things like, “Make sure you text your mom where you are sleeping each night, so if you get kidnapped, they know your last location…” #DamigoTourAdvice (Best advice also gets a camera full of Damigo pictures!)
Well, I need to pack and make sure I can get my pedal to work. Thank you so much for all the support guys. I love you! Also, Kickstarter only has 4 days left, and we’re about 250 bucks away from the goal! (95% funded!!!) If I don’t raise that last bit of money, I don’t get any of it… (boo….) But I have a good feeling. 😀 I added a couple new prizes, and I’m really excited to make this record!
Thanks again! And tell somebody about the tour!!!
