My New Studio

....Too bad its not in NYC area!! I love how literal this is. For the past several years I've been looking at old beauty salons in the hopes of turning one into a guitar shop and moving my teaching studio in the back. It would be a place run by women. Girls and women need a place to try out pedals and instruments where they can feel comfortable. This would be perfect!! Too bad its over the pond. Any leads, please send my way!

and the new band is..."The JULIE RUIN"!

We played our first show last Saturday night, December 11th, at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, Nyc. The show was being filmed for a documentary about Kathleen. Look for it soon!
Each band/and or performer took on KH song to cover, and truly, they were ALL great. Of course I was kinda jittery since it was our first show (aren't first shows supposed to be for 13 drunk friends in a stupid bar?), and I was nervous because I've become super obsessive and picky about my amp sound and pedals. There was also a camera following Kathleen everywhere, inches from her face, so when I went to ask her if my panty lines were showing or if I had shoveled on so much makeup I looked like Christopher Walken (KH's joke...hehe), I couldn't. And well, thankfully...insecure babble doesn't help anything. Here's some pics that include everyone in the band - KH on vocals, Kenny, Carmine, Kathi :-)

I was mostly impressed and half in love with the MC's. There is something about comedians when they're good....I think its a ying/yang thing - its something that terrifies me more than anything (stand up) so I am drawn to others who have it. Anyway.......
