Today was quite eventful. We took the whole family to a coffee shop that we just learned existed. The point of the trip was to discuss the possibility of hosting an open mic there. What we didn’t realize is that the coffee shop has a 298 capacity event room with a stage!! Talk about the perfect opportunity!!
|The stage is incredible||.|
The coffee and the food were very good, yet the place opened just in November, so it seemed to have plenty of room to grow. Talk about the perfect recipe for a crazy guy like me to come in and try to get them on board for an open mic.
We hope to help them out and vice versa by seeing if we can’t garner some interest in their shop by creating a family friendly weekly event. I’ll let you know what she says.

Wanna Beat Stage Fright? Screw Up On Stage!!
The other thing is that I was able to conquer stage fright to a degree…I learned how to mess up. I didn’t grow up onstage, I don’t naturally have good stage presence. But tonight, I completely butchered a song on stage at an open mic night at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins. I laughed it off and no one cared. I couldn’t even finish the song, but I asked to switch it out for another one and everyone was excited to hear it. I was actually quite comfortable onstage for once!!! Hopefully a sign of things to come.
