The Cafe Du Nord Experience!
i realize that i never wrote a re-cap for our Cafe Du Nord show which is funny because i remember emphasizing what a huge deal this was for me… well! here it is! on days where i find myself with absolutely nothing to do, i make lists. and one day i made a list of all the things i’d like to do before i die. and one of the things on that list was to play at a venue in which Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall, Matt Costa, Tristan Prettyman, G. Love, Jewel, and Ingrid Michaelson have played at. well, i’ve still to grace the stage at a venue where G. Love, KT, and Matt have played, but Cafe Du Nord killed 3 birds with 1 stone!
i don’t think i realized what it felt like to actually BE a musician until this day, maybe i’ve still a long ways to go, i am sure, but playing on a stage with a standing room/dance floor was a new experience for me. i’m used to be background music (which i don’t really like btw, ha!) so having people screaming and cheering was amazing! attentive audiences= FTW. something about playing a show where everyone is just so into it… it made me feel so fearless, it was awesome!
i would definitely love to play this venue again, it had such great vibes and it was a cute little cozy place. one of these days i want to wake up in a different city every day, or at least play in different parts of the same city every day. haha! the more shows i play in San Francisco the more i realize how big the music scene is here, and i want to become much more apart of it. i want to really make a name in the SF music scene! i hope the LB’s and i can do that! i feel like play Cafe Du Nord was an awakening for me almost, like it made me realize how much i really just ENJOY playing music on a stage for people. i think it’s so cool that i can sing about stories and feelings of my life- and people enjoy it. it’s an amazing feeling.
here’s a video from the night, a new tune called “Sweet To Me.” i’m not really sure why i’m screaming in the beginning, but when i’m on stage, lots of funny things happen and i can never explain why i say or do the things i do, but i love it, haha!
