To top it off, I sold an amp yesterday (a DanElectro Dirty Thirty which I haven't used in years) for $60. So I have lots of extra cash this week.

I wasn't sure how this gig was going to be. The host originally asked us to play from 5 - 10 PM. I told him we reallly didn't have enough material for five hours. I suggested three sets and he liked that idea. When I got there he told me he wasn't really thinking when he said 5 - 10. He meant that the party would start around 5 and he wanted us to be there at 5 and start playing at 6. He also told me not to worry about how long our sets and breaks were and to make it casual.

We had a nice time playing, and even though we were sort of in the background, people really liked us and told us so. We might get some more party gigs from that one.

Here is the surprise part. We were supposed to get $300. When I asked one of our hosts about getting paid she told me she had the money ready for me. She started counting out $100 bills and handed me $600. I was going to tell her that she was paying me too much. Before I got a chance to tell her that, she said "I know we agreed on $100 per band member, but we wanted you to have $200 each." I, of course, did not argue with that.

They gave all of us food to take home (I'll be eating barbecue sandwiches for dinner a couple of nights this week) and asked us to play the party again next year.

I love it when stuff like that happens!
