Feb 5, 2012. This is the first practice for my newest band, which it seems will be called Jai Alai. This was also my first time meeting Gary, who's playing guitar. It went quite well, and I expect we'll be in good shape by the time we play our first show on March 1. Yeah, that's soon, but the Bricks actually did it the same way back in 2003. JJ called me one day and said "we have a gig in three weeks, and I have another guitar player, and we might have a bass player." We learned some songs, wrote some others, and carried on until I moved to Chicago five years later.
