In yesterday’s post, I alluded to a gig in Wilmington, North Carolina, at the Juggling Gypsy Cafe. It’s an artist-friendly venue that has the vibe of such places: a shabby, dimly-lit interior, populated with colorful, post-ironic types (some young, some clinging to youth on the wrong side of 35), the walls plastered with flyers for obscure bands and pages from old comic books. It’s the kind of place I used to play frequently in my twenties, when I still had the energy and drive to play for peanuts at 10:30 PM on a Wednesday night.
It was a fun trip there and back. I met a transgender photographer working as a bartender. I talked to a really passionate carpenter. An old dude had personal conversations with me during my second set. But if you want to hear the whole story, you’ve gotta subscribe to my SubscribeStar page for $1 a month or more!
