Here marks the end of an era. Tuesday night open mic with Augy G at the Wolf and Firkin drew to a close on Tuesday February 18, 2014 after ten years of sharing, mentoring and entertaining and being entertained. It sure went out with a bang, not a whimper! A huge turnout of fans, friends and jammers got together for the grand finale. Jason Kirow, Lyndsie Whalen, Paul Fanone, The Dead Pixels, Corey, Pablo Mandy, Juli, Chris Li, Flights Falls, Jonny, Christopher Hollow, Brad, Tim and Norman Paprakis were just few of many who contributed to the atmosphere of the evening. The Pixel Gang was there in full force.
The piece de resistance occurred when Jason Kirow & Lyndsie Whalen took to the stage and presented me with a brand new Martin acoustic guitar. The whole Pixel Gang generously contributed, and I appreciate this beyond words. Everytime I play this guitar (I’m thinking of naming her Pixella) memories of Tuesday nights with the Pixel Gang will come back. The case was signed by so many great friends. Thanks so much for your good thoughts and kind words. It means the world to me to know how much our Tuesday nights meant to everyone. With every door that closes, however , another one opens and hopefully we will find another home to make our particular brand of magic!
Below are pictures of the guitar and the signed case. Cheers!
