After driving through the mountains we spent the night in El Cajon and nobody woke up sore.
We didn't have to drive far to get to San Diego. We ate lunch with Martin and the Axure
crew. Martin gave us a chance to catch up on some much needed R & R - another pal making this adventure possible.
Our gig at Scolari's Office took us to the North Park neighborhood in San Diego. We had time enough to wander a couple of funky shops and records stores nearby. We also found a pizza joint for dinner and stared at a TV for a while.
The seesaw ensemble opened impressed us with some free jazz and overdriven Fender Rhodes. We enjoy sharing music with good musicians and having our faces melted.
All this playing has tightened up our set. The crowd at Scolari's wore more black leather than usually appears for Drop Trio, but Ian won them over with some undeniably wicked keytar mind tricks. Seriously, they went nuts for the keytar; that doesn't always happen.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo
