It was a really fun show. Nux Vomica was down to one member, who did really great discrete laptop jams, composed from his own files and files sent to him by absent band members.
Cloud Shepherd played one longer piece to start. I was feeling a bit emotional, as I could see out the loft windows of the space the very spot where the last Lithium Milkshake performance happened (Making Waves Fest, 1996, corner of Market and Golden Gate). Accordingly, I played with what seemed to be a bit more fire. Joe and Andrew responded. Joe sounded particularly inspired, especially on his C-Melody sax.
After the opening piece, Nux Vomica and Cloud Shepherd did a collaborative piece, which proved to be a bit more mellow, but also fun. A good night!

My co-worker Adam Symons, upon being asked if he knew any guitar players who might be interested in playing with us, suggested his good friend Ian. Big ups to Adam for that connection.
We hope to familiarize Ian with our songs over the next few months, and then commence recording and playing some shows.
