We have here Tim, Matt, Brien, JJ and Joey of The Mayday Orchestra, sketched by me while performing last night at City Art Supply, and then chased down by me after their set so they each could sign their sketch.
Yeah, my computer with the scanner is on the fritz. Yeah, the photographing of the sketch is almost as lame as the sketches themselves. But I like doing it, it makes me happy.
This band is so incredibly good, even unrehearsed and laconic. I was so happy throughout their set and so proud of Tim Rakel's maturation. I have some reason to think of him as a little brother, a protege perhaps, though he long ago outgrew me.
I'll write more about the show and the music sometime when I have had some actual sleep. Maybe they will let me bootbloog a tune, as well. Tim was kind enough to bootleg their Haymarket record, which is scary good.
