Ear Spray/Music for Hard Times-Berkeley Arts Festival Building; Berkeley, CA 5/20/13

Ear Spray had a great time playing in Berkeley this evening.
To say that the show was sparsely attended would be an overstatement, but I've long since learned to find other values to performance. Plus, I was able to achieve the kind of sublime mental space of feeling subjective and objective simultaneously; there could have been hundreds present or no one at all. In the zone type stuff, I guess.
I was able to feel each bead of sweat on my forehead, each shimmering reflection of light off of the Tom Nunn Plate and cymbal stands. Sweet.

Music for Hard Times were great. Paul and Tom practice some deeply interior psychedelic improvisation.

At the end of the evening, both groups put our heads together for a short piece. Everyone listened, and it felt right. Paul Winstanley got the  last note of the evening. All left happy.
