Not always a bed of roses

Played a gig last night at a bar in Roseville. Not my turf or my audience.It's a crowd that wants to talk, shoot pool and listen to the juke box. Not the most receptive to original material.I would have been better off playing an hour of cover tunes.Why that did'nt cross my addled brain I don't know, duh..
It's good to throw yourself into unfamliar teritory now and again.Keeps you on you on toes and greatful for the killer gigs !
