Open Mic

sh55-1.pngPengilly’s last night had their weekly open mic.

It’s a relatively small bar downtown Boise. it has a lively crowd but sometimes they can be real chatty and it makes it hard to listen to the artists. But last night I really cut through that. It was amazing, I got on stage and everyone was yacking away. I must have caught their attention when I announced that I was going to do a Sinead O’Connor set and started playing “Black boys on Mopeds” It was eerie, The room fell silent. Not a glass clinked , nobody spoke at all. It was a rare musical moment. When I finished the crowd erupted into applause. I felt totally at home.
