This post is quite delayed. I apologize for being tired and hating computers after 5pm. Anyway, on Monday, March 7th, Black Horse Motel took part in a new acoustic series hosted at the North Star Bar. The new completely unplugged and wonderfully intimate weekly show is hosted in the upstairs dining room at the North Star Bar. Surprisingly, it's called the Victorian Dining Room Series! The room holds about 50 people and is the perfect setting to enjoy the North Star's new revamped menu and some true and honest performances.
Only three of us could make it to the show - Dave, Andras, and myself (freshly returned from vacation with lots of freckles!) Des was missed, but we pressed on in spite of our grief. We played eight songs, including a premier of a brand new song that Andras wrote just the day before. Dave and I hadn't even heard it yet! We hated it. NO, no, just kidding. We have been working on it since then, cooking up some delicious harmonies. More on that song later. All in all, we had a great time and really enjoyed being able to get up close and personal with the audience. It's a nice change from the bright lights, ringing ears, and heavy lifting that go along with playing a full stage show. Feeling inspired after the show, we immediately scheduled two more small acoustic shows with friends to explore this new stripped-down setting! But, don't worry, I won't let those drums be gone for too long.
We had the pleasure of sharing the night with New Sweden, our lovely neighbors from Wilmington, Delaware. A big thank you to the band and their fans, and ours, for their gracious support! Please check them out when you get a chance.
Be sure to check the North Star's events schedule, or their Facebook events, for this fantastic series every Monday night. We hope to be back very soon. Besides, what else is there to do on a Monday?
Hope to see you soon, Megan
