Mudang Rouge at Death By Audio, 25 July 2009

The second and last improvisation from our show at Death By Audio on Saturday. We recreated the apartment-hang vibe: Lim and I shared the love-seat and Bettis sat on a comfy chair across the way ... although, befitting the atmosphere, the chair was a tiny bit soiled and my case was sitting in some funky mess. Lim's kayagum received the lion's share of the attention, and quite a few unprovoked strummings before the set.

David Byrne also has a shrine

Wow. For once the Orioles create a buzz that I'm happy about. That was awesome. And what the hell was this?!? Anyway.

Those of you who have been to our apartment know about our shrine. (I'll update this post with pictures once I get a new digital camera ... ours took a fatal dip in Maine.) Well, David Byrne has one too. So there.
