Okay, well, after a long delay of doing re-recorded songs from the previous year, I’m at it again. Go have a listen to the original version here and you can figure out what’s going on.
Or…I can just tell you.
This new version is kinda more like a folk song. Although, all my songs are kinda like folk songs. But with this one it’s easy to recognize. I’m not sure why I did it like that. I think maybe I’m a little bored of the bluesy playing and singing style I’ve been using for the past year or so.
Or maybe I was just under the gun to get this done before the end of the day. Either way…here it is.
For me, this new version is way more interesting than the original. Probably because it was really hard for me to keep time on the guitar, sing the words slightly jumbled up from how the original lyrics were written out on the page, and play in this style, which I haven’t played in for a while.
But, this is this. Lot’s of bigtime Poor Elvis shows coming up. Two tomorrow (10/13): first at Lacuna Artist Loft Studios for a pop-up gallery. You don’t want to miss that. Goes from 12pm to 6pm and we’ll be playing 2 acoustic sets throughout the day. More info here.
Then, on Sunday from 2pm-6pm we’re doing an in-store performance at Saki Records in Logan Square. We play first, probably around 2 or 2:30, so come on out. There’s info here about this one. Notice, that at both the Saki show and the Lacuna show, Powell Brew House will be pouring FREE beer samples the entire time. Yeah!
Finally, on Wednesday, October 17, we’re playing a big show at Subterranean with He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister and Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles. You can find more info on that here, or get tickets here. It’s gonna sell out soon, so hurry up. The two groups we’re playing with a spectacular.
