I did two sets tonight in Baltimore, Maryland. The first set came via a six minute guest spot at The Reserve in Federal Hill. Mediocre is the most positive word I can think of for my performance. This was a yuppy-ish crowd and they were certainly polarized by the "edgier" material.
Ultimately, I did not make enough adjustments during this set and it provided mixed results. I was also distracted by a table occupied by a kick ball team (I know this because they were wearing kick ball uniforms). I should not have let them get to me...After one joke, a girl at this table gave me a very loud "womp wah".
I'm assuming this girl will stumble across my blog at some point (because my shit is blowing up)... so to her I say: I work hard on jokes and just because you didn't get it, doesn't mean you should drunkedly mock me to your drunk yuppy friends. Also, you should consider playing a real sport like... Teather Ball. P.S. Eat shit.
After show one, I raced over to Canton for a ten minute set at the Red House Tavern in Canton. I was very happy to get this set in, because I got a second chance. I fixed a few of my mistakes and saw instant results. It was nice rebounding the same night and not having to wait until tomorrow. Overall this was a really good set. The new stuff continues to hit and take shape. I feel great about the progress.
Special thanks to Dave Shofer for putting me on his shows.
P.S. I know my shit isn't really blowing up.
