The thoughts in my head have got me crawling back to bed

ums-friday-004 Last night San Francisco’s Ryan Auffenberg played to a packed Michelangelo’s Cafe for the Underground Music Showcase. Channeling sweet strong pop melodies, Ryan led all of us to be his brilliant backup singers.

And yes, in the beginning when he asks who wants to sing and you hear a female immediately pipe in, yeah, that would be me. I am a sucker for a good singalong.

Here are a few other images from my day yesterday that went until 4am this morning. I’m recuperating in a dark room right now, preparing to do it all again this afternoon.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
