Busy night last night at Chopsticks. I decided when I went in that I was only going to do two songs, and I still didn't get out the door for over an hour. Some entertaining singers I hadn't seen before, though, like the baseball-cap dude who did justice to the Pretenders' "Middle of the Road."|
I'd had Sparks' "This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us" stuck in my head for a solid week, and had tried to figure out how to sing it in the appropriate register, but it was just too high--a lot of it is a strain, even in falsetto, and the final note is flat-out impossible. For those of you who don't know the song, check out this live performance, w/ moustache:

Wrote down a bunch of potential songs for future weeks, sang "Tainted Love," which went just fine, and split.
